Had a run last night and played with the tamiya tires.
conditions were low grip, cold night, and the only change to the car between rounds was the rears. Ran tamiya hards up front. I run Tekin 21.5. with boost etc. 8 min races
first up tried tamiya soft rears with the shimizu inserts that come with the shimizu rears. FXII for 15 minutes. Best Lap 25.351, Avg 26.205, Car felt very stable, and easy to get onto power. 19 Laps total 8m17. I had used these tires for 3 races earlier, so had some wear.
next race tried tamiya soft with foam insert. Treated with FXII 15 minutes. Best Lap 25.830 Avg 25.830. Car felt fine, I did feel that I couldn't hold on the throtle as early. 18 laps in total 8m.05.
Final race of night went back to first race setup and car felt even better, but I forgot to but in transponder, but I was able to finish within 1/2 sec or corally for another 19 laps.
I would recommend for low traction cold to give the Tamiya Soft rear's with the shimizu inserts a go if looking for rear traction.
