Default tire choice

I drive on low grip hardpacked dirt, outdoors.
The main tire we use is proline holeshot2.0 rear and JC rips front.

I want to use / try other rear and/or front tires, can you guys recomend me anything?

what do you prefer on low grip hardpacked dirt ?

I got an email that LiquidRC is having a sale on all Hitec stuff. Are any of these items good for this buggy?

It was a little pushy/loose. The throttle was really touchy/sensitive so I had to really concentrate on the throttle control other wise it would step out real easy and if I didn't give it enough it would push (plus it had a little off power push) It wasn't that bad though overall. It was worse before we shot the video, I had him make changes to it and it got better.

Overall it was pretty planted, like I mentioned above the throttle setting wasn't good and made it hard to drive if you had to really push it. It was just too sensitive.

And yes, the track is super fun!! The six pack section is a killer....

We actually had the car in rear motor (RM3) configuration in the video. His pics of it in mid-motor at the beginning of the video are from his intial build when he first got the car. He drove it once and immediately changed it to RM3.
