Exclamation Which Foam Tires i should use? (TC4+5000KV+4sLipo)

Hi Everyone,
I have started a project of building fastest EP car in my town 3 months back, for this project i have chosen TC4 kit with 5000KV Brushless motor and 4s lipo battery. i have tried to drive the car few times to see how fast its, but i faced a problem that i can drive only upto 1/2 throttle otherwise its not controlable and starts rolling. i feel the issue is from the tires, i am using JACO foam tires but to be honest i am not familiar with the color codes of the foam tires and maybe i am using the wrong color code(double pink for all wheels). Can someone guide me in how to select the right tires for my car? just for info i am driving my car on asphalt only. Moreover the car is equipped with standard differential in front and rear, do i need to use the one-way diff in front for high speed run.
Thanks
Swaaf

definitely get the right tires on there, then everything should be just fine. i would go with the 'coral' compound from parma. definitely.

I would still try the Jacos. They have two more compounds you can fine tune with.. Looks like you’re currently running the Double Pinks, you could try the Jaco Magentas JAC6132 or for even more GRIP you could try the JAC6130 PINK's
