I run the crimeties setup at my local track (dusty and gets blownout) my rc8 gets great traction. Tried m3 crimefighters on all 4s(made donuts).m2 bowties(no steering). m2 crimefighters(lil more steering). until I experiment more with tires, the crimeties have me dailed

I may have to try the crimetie combo, are the M2 Crimefighter's harder than the M3's?

Also, I have a few sets of Eclipse Red's. They seem to have a very similar tread to the Bowtie's, can I use those in place of Bowtie's for this combination?

Thanks.

Of course I guess that is probably because the driver sucks!

[QUOTE=imaxx21;4792451]works great

bow-ties offer better forward bite (use them in the rear)
crime fighters steer better (use them in front)[/QUOTE

+1 that's the truth of it, but it only works well on watered down hard packed blue groove tracks. If the surface is loomy, or loose, you need something that digs deeper. At the Nitro Pit here in AZ, most of us practice with Knuckles, or badlands, and Race with the Bowfighters after the watering starts
