I ran my 510 on carpet a bit at Big Dad's in Portland, OR in May. No compound, handled pretty good. I wasn't really pushing it.
Ran it again outdoors at a demo event in front of a car dealership here in Billings in June. Pavement was pretty poor, though we blew it off and sprayed down sugar water. Again, no compound on tires, car handled very well.
I've got the car set up with a 3000mah MaxAmps 2s LiPo (BARELY fits lengthwise) and a Tamiya silver can motor. This combo SHOULD be fairly close to Vintage TA cars running any of their various specs. The Vintage TA guys running at our demo were squirreling around with 6-cell / Stock (non-spec) power so I couldn't really get a good read.

Congressmen should wear uniforms like NASCAR drivers so we can identify their corporate sponsors.
