Yellows would just soften the rear...Your car may push a little if so stick with the whites...I just think that using the softer springs and making shck oil and piston changes give you a finer tunning adjustments.....Remember that these tires are truly in between Foams and rubbers...They have a alot of traction as they break in and tire prepp and care will keep your car as consistent as it can be....With not being able to change inserts or compounds tire care is amplified....I am thinking of trying yellow all around...White all around is pretty sweet though....Do some testing for sure and post your findings or PM me and I will do the same that way we can hit the sweet spot faster.......Plus becareful as it is easy to get these cars to stick to much....Find the spot thats almost loose and that will hold....Keep it there.....Also if your not allready try a oneway or oneway fixed I assume you have a multidiff....Actually...post what your running....IE: Batt's, motor etc.

I ran my 009eu last night in VTA...I have been swapping between the 007 and 009....I am gonna stick with the 009 but my setups are identical between the 2.....I applaud you for being able to drive with the spool..I am running the oneway fixed so I get the best of both worlds oneway and spool..

I am gonna try a swaybar on the rear.....Which body are you running?
