Default Tc5 Foam Tires

I with running at SV raceway.
Richard said to use 37 compound tires.
My question is what width works best?
30 mm all around or 26 MM all around.
Anybody got links to cheaper (in price, not quality foams?
which tires work best?

26mm in the front and 30s in the back would be what nitro cars run

try 26mm all the way around, 37 shore GQs are amazing but are a little pricey
i personally dont think 30s would fit on a TC5

Don't want to run the standard 28mm? JACO Prism's are sweet.

Where do you get Gq Tires?
Are GRP foams any good?
