I had very good results with Panther Switch on wet clay tracks. They stay light weighted due to the low pins. Traction is good, as stated before, nothing sticks as good to mud as mud.

Small pin tires like AKA Grid Irons in soft or super soft. If you look at the Worlds videos from 2008 in North Carolina you will have your answer to as what the Pro's run when it rains. (sloppy mud / wet clay)

The difference between an MX bike and an R/C car is that bikes have transmissions where the clutch doesn't slip so they can transmit power to a single tire that gets max grip. An R/C clutch just will not tolerate that much grip and weight so we need to slip it through the tires (4 of them) to keep the engine in the air and cool.

I think there is a big difference between wet clay track, and real mud.

In 1:1 mud tyres for 4wd have avery open pattern so they self clean - wheel spin throws the mud off. Thus I think for real mud a Knuckles, Badlands, or VP Pro Bulldog in a very soft compound would be best
