There are several the work very well, and the only way for you to know which you like the best, you'll need to try a set of each...

Proline Holeshots are very popular (a bit too sketchy for me though)
Proline Crimefighters and Bowties are seen a lot.
Panther Komodo's, and Komodo II work very well escpecailly on a new track.
Panther Stinger are really good, but wear kind of fast...

See ya at the Nova Rossi race this weekend??

Hope this helps...

Have Fun...Burn Nitro...

Holeshots, crimefighters, bowties, bowfighters,losi eclipse, panther raptors,...my favorites are bowfighters on m3 and holeshots on m3 and the new losi ecplise i feel more comfortable running the car with bowfighters and the eclipses then i do holeshots but holeshots are faster around the track... a little loose if you dont stay in the groove or if the track is completly dry like say it hasent been waterd in hours then their a little loose but dana and the guys are pretty good at keeping the track watered for us or when we ask for some water...so if you have any of these tires i would bring them with you ....see you guys their tomorow for the NOVAROSSI USA CHAMPS.....

Unfortunately not, going out of town for the weekend. Im hoping to get out to a club race next weekend.

Thanks for the help. I ran Komodo IIs (unknown compound) out there a couple weeks ago. They were excellent in the damp, a little loose in the dry. I dont really want to run Holeshots, seems too unforgiving but I might try it. What Panther compound is good out there?
