Nice to see a Brazilian company selling good products on the US!
I Use alpha tires for 3 years now on my 1/10 and they are nice.
Here in Brazil there is a group of people that call themselves as "3D Club" (3 digits speed) and they told that the only tire that they tested able to do so is the Alpha, but I don't know if any one that you are selling is these ones, the brushless ready ones. here:

Here is one video of the 3D Club:

For dragracing I prefer the Tekin ESC with a Hacker motor. I've beaten plenty of MMM guys running higher voltages then me.

I'll keep my eye out for when these tires become available. One less thing to worry about when trying to hit 100mph.

Well, I just got an email from Max Velocity, and they got them in on black wheel. I am going to get them added to the website ASAP.

It's in my sig. C50-6L 4080kv Hacker motor. Power is linear and spools up quicker as it's a 2 pole motor. Timing is 5 degrees. It has more then enough torque as well. The use of 4s over 6s also saves weight. My RX8 ESC's also have additional caps installed. My rollout is around 1.3. Your setup will most likely be different.

For speed runs the weight doesn't matter and your Castle motor is no issue.

I have some old vids on Youtube
