On the tire front, I had good results with JConcepts 3D's, green compound. It might work for you as well.

For the buggy I like m4 holeshot fronts and m4 square fuzzy rears
Also had good results with 3ds or flip outs on the rear
for SC double d's or gridirons are pretty good bets

I keep meaning to try the black compound, but meh DD's have always been such a let down for me. The knobbies get ripped off the carcass too much for my liking. The DD's on the front of my wheel went bald in 3 packs from the knobbies falling off. Had the same issue with the rear at CV. Maybe the black compound is better, but green has been an issue for me. The rips seem to work well though, but I tried m4 holeshots in the main last week and the car was very good. Seemed like i had a lot more balanced traction and more on power steering.
