I have run them in 2wd with sucess. I think it would be a great 4wd tire.

i run them on my 2wd right now...and IMO they are okay ...i think i like the holeshots better though..but maybe that is just my opinion...with holeshots, i think i can drive better since i have the traction i want yet i can slide around 180 turns and long sweepers with ease.

even with the current track condition???,,
i found the holeshots to be not soooo great when it is dry andhard like now.. but when fresh and new.. hands down holeshots by far are my tire choice even a used set will perform well ,, just my opinion..

the "inside job" for what i understand are more of a blue groove tire.. i guess similar to what the condition is now,,

i have had good success with the evil twins (over my holeshots) on my truck and would like to give them a try aswell on the rear of my 4wd in addition to the inside-job, the only hting is the evil twins are r3 compound and the inside job is a m3 compound..

When the track is super dry, either pink x-2000 or squares for buggy, and holeshots/squares for truck

The holeshot is an overall heavier tire. One race day in truck I simply used Evil Twins instead of Holeshots (dry track) and almost picked up 1 sec per lap...everything else was the same. Evil Twins do have a nick name though...Evil Spins...only use when DRY and stay out of the dust.

no for when the track has been watered, or it is still moist. I havent tried the current condition...so maybe i can try that this weekend...on wet conditions like the 1st and 2nd week the track has been built (and watered) the inside jobs arent that great..i remember with holeshots, on the straight, i could feel a big difference and i could pull little wheelies..

the most popular ive seen are probably the 18ts and mini-ts...but they get owned (the days i go..) i remember when i drove my mini inferno (sold it already...dont buy it.. ) i got owned..even with a speed 400 motor, a united rc pack..bearings..and oil shocks...never tried it at socal when i got my brushless...sold it shortly after that...

Mini's can do okay at socal..but the track gets pretty ruffed up and usually....the lil cars go all bumpy and cant handle the bumps and ruts on the tracks, and kinda look like lil radio shack toys that go faster..

NO OFFENSE TO ALL THE MINI OFFROADERS! i know...they are SUPER COOL! but from my experience..and from what ive seen..i prefer 1/10th over minis.. .JUST MY OPINION!

im pretty sure they do hold a mini class on fridays ( not positive.. one of the offroad racing days atleast..)

On the last layout, I ran inside jobs the first wednesday with great success, but the track was to dry for them by the first friday, then we switched to Pink x-2000s, like usual.

Insides aren't "better" than holeshots. At socal, during the first week, the track changes alot, and depending on the track conditions, tires selection will vary. Sometimes holeshots will be dialed, other times inside jobs, pink Xs, or Squares, it depends on the track.
