If you are refering to Advantage Racing by DLD, I have ran them. They work great. I have used the Blockpass, and the Hat Tricks. The Hat Tricks are simular to the Komodo's, but I personally think they are better. The Blockpass tires, are unique to anything I have seen, and work on most any surface. They wear real well. Definiately something to keep in your arsenal!

+1 on the Blockpass.

I have also tried the Hat tricks and Holeshots.
Holeshots are very good but only for ~10 minutes...wear out way too fast.
Hat tricks have less overall grip than the blockpass and holeshots.
I personally prefer the Blockpass over the other DLD tyres.
Compared to Pro line Crimefighters.
They wear out slower than the "Crimes" and offer better grip on slightly-dusty, dusty surfaces.
On high grip conditions will work fine after they wear out a bit...so maybe run them for 5 minutes practice before qualifying or race.
