I only know one guy who's tried them. Maybe he'll post what he thought. I do know he had a new set of slicks the very next weekend though.

Yes. The slicks were pink Losi.

There have been times when the track goes back and forth between Panther switches and Losi taper pins. It's been over a year since I ran the two tires back to back, so I can't give you a good comparison. I'll leave that up to the better drivers.

Yes in the past it has always been slicks. Losi Pink slicks are the safest bet. I have seen M3 slicks also work good, but like I say you cannot go wrong with losi pink slicks, and truthfully those are probably the better tires anyways. I used to have a set of losi pink slicks and also a set of losi pink treads. I have seen on mod day by the mains where slicks were on edge. there would be about 50% of the top drivers running treads and the other slicks. For stock no question as long as they do the track the same as they always have it will be slicks all day long with no problem.
