It will be interesting to see how these are recieved since they don't seem to have brought out an indoor rubber comound (ie. Losi pink, J-con Gold, Panther "C", etc.) which have been the reason the other popular tires have been successful.

The Super Soft will be equivalent to all the other manufactures compounds....

Super soft is not equivalent to all the other indoor tires. AKA is working on their own compound just give them time. They have not finalized it yet that I know. I had the pleasure to try some indoor compound for Pavidas last fall and compare to SS, S tires, unfortunately they were in grid iron tread pattern and the pins were too big to be truly comparable to a switch or pink taper.

Wishbones claim victory in first time outing, both 1/8 electric buggy
and 1/10 Unlimited 4WD Short Course classes last night at West Coast
R/C's 100% clay indoor track.

Jeremy Kortz; "Perfect amount of traction. I was so hooked up I'll be
way faster now."

Jimmy Wright; "Great forward bite and the perfect slip angle to traction
ratio, these are fantastic"

Man I am tire poor. So many choices and only so much room in the tire bags.
