I feel Ride Red is almost identical to HPI Pink but my car is always faster with Ride Red.

I have never come close to a traction roll with a BD7, tbh, never even seen it happen at our track, lots of other cars rolling all the time though, to be sure we have a high grip track

Haven't tried Yok Blue on asphalt yet...hmmm

Hrm. I'll have to compare them again. I thought Red was a bit stiffer than Silver, but softer than Pink. And Purple is stiffer than Pink. With the gap between Purple/Red being similar to the gap between Pink/Silver.

Hmmm. I never really had grip roll issues. This is on low to med bite asphalt. I tried it also on carpet where Dave(RedbullFixx) and RacingEvo run, it didn't traction rolled either. It only happened once when I sauced the full tires. Yes, this is with Yok Blues and HPI springs. Perhaps, different degree of high bite carpet?

This is good. We can all compare our findings .
