Jaco Blue's or Green's are most likely the way to go. Tires depend on numerous factors (Track Temp, Overall temp, Pavement Traction,etc) Also a matter of personal choice and what runs best for your setup

there all good, just be careful because the muchmore sweeps are not glue'd so don't buy them because they are cheaper. I am against tire gluing.

Had great results with Sorex premounts outside on asphalt. And good results with Jaco's on carpet. Never was happy with the Jaco's outside but they could not be beat on carpet.

I find the Top 36s to be quite a good tyre.I 'm running them with an 07 T2 in 540 silvercan.They get up to temp pretty fast and carry good corner speed.Wear is great too.The only thing i dont like though is the rims,they are brittle and crack easily.

mrrcguy, If you buy them from RCMART there not glued, but there cheap low $20 range. At least this was that case when I bought some back in September of this year.

Sorex have been the best tire for longevity but my first experience with Much More Sweeps was a very good. You just need to use them in their list temp range or they'll wear very quickly. For the money thou they may be my new tire of choice this next summer for outdoor racing.

Typically sorex 24 and 28 will cover me indoors and out, unless the outside temperature is really really low,(0degrees C ) then I might use cs22's
