Juan by minis I'm assuming 1/18th scale? With the surface a rubber tire may not give enough grip. Foam tires may be a better choice. As far as leaving marks.....running without traction compound I think would be better. Good luck to you!!

It should work fine.

Tennis Courts normally have an abrassive grit added to the paint so players don't loose footing when doing a swtichback.

Rubber leaving marks is really up to the tire just like shoes. Some mixtures will leave streaks, some just wear as dust.

oops!! my bad I still think foam tires would be an advantage due to the surface but if all cars are running rubber, go for it. Neither tire should leave marks, but you'll have to run a test group and see.
