Default Short Course tire suggestions

So in hopes of getting out to run at Huckleberry I just picked up a used Tekno SCT 410.3. What tires are you all running at Huckleberry and does anyone have a setup to suggest other than the stock manual setup? Only goofed around with stadium trucks when I was younger so never setup a short course truck. Any help is appreciated. Ps Iíll make sure to get out of the faster trucks way till I get comfortable racing off road. Coming from onroad 1/10 VTA, F1 and USGT.

Most guys run a Proline Holeshot style tire. You can run what ever brand you like, but the style of pin is very popular.

Congrats on the new toy! I run a Losi truck so canít comment much on setup, other than generally you want good sharp turn-in for the multiple 180* turns. I run my suspension a little on the soft side for rough bumps.

Any mini-pin style like Holeshot is good. Donít go too soft on the compound or they will wear quickly. Iím currently running AKA Impact and like them. Itís a bit of a balancing act because the track can get very hard and dusty, but they water frequently which turns almost loamy.

Hope to see you out there! I usually try to go Sunday mornings.

Appreciate the input. Hope to be out there starting the 31st. Been out of town for work and looking forward to hitting the track. Got the truck in the mail before I left so got to give it a drive and seemed fun and in good shape. Got a good deal. Came with a Tekin RX8 esc (need to learn Tekin since I normally use Hobbywing or Reedy) a Pro 4HD 4300kv motor and futaba servo, some spare parts and shock springs. So should be good to start running and learning short course. Only bad part is it had slick tires from running indoor tracks so need to get tires and rim. Glueing tires is not
my idea of fun but unlike onroad there doesnít seem to be much in the way of premount/glue off-road tires out there to buy. So hoping the track has tires and rims for purchase. If not I need to figure out which rims I need for it and to find some holeshots or similar in stock somewhere local around Orange County.

The sc410.3 uses the losi scte offset wheels. So you will need to look for those. Not many premounts (except for traxxas) for sct tires/wheels.

The track does have some ProMotion tires and wheels but I think they are only 1/8 buggy/truggy. Short course stuff can be hard to come by. There is a bin of old used wheels and tires if you are in a pinch.

I did see some proline Holeshots and DE wheels at Ultimate Hobbies in Orange about a week ago. They have a small (and shrinking) short course section. Other than that, Revelation in Ontario is probably your best bet.

oh and definitely get some tire rubber bands. They make gluing much easier.
