This all depends on what your track is like, i personally run holeshots and they hook up great.

prolly a real loose track. Step pins would work and also IFMARS too.

What compound are you running for IFMAR Studs for the front and the rear tires?

If its red compound all around, you could try going with silver fronts for the ifmar studs. This could calm down the front bite a bit.

As for tires, I wish losi didn't stop making the ifmar pins for 4wd fronts. I really liked that tire. Great when you want something between a stud and holeshots.

Another tire combo that worked on multi-surface conditions that I liked was proline m3 steppins all around.

Goosebumpers work great... also you can never go wrong with double dees or holeshots..

JConcepts Goosebumps are probably the tire for you. I would run them all the way around.

The JC website is very confusing on the Goose Bumps tire description then.

Goose Bumps Green Compound (fits 2.2 4wd front wheel)
Part # - 3019-02
(fits 2.2 4wd front wheel)


How do you order 4WD front and 2/4WD rear if there is no option to choose front or rear?

The way I understand it is there is one Goose Bumps tire and it fits 4WD front and 2/4WD rear.

Jason or Andrew, can you please confirm?
