Default Hpi Drift Tires?

I just used a translator on the hpi japan website, and from what it said hpi is going to come out with drift tires with the name of Stage D. Anyone have any news on this stuff?

Most HPI tires feel like drift tires.

He's talking about these:
I'm assuming they're a superhard tire ..

Dont buy drift tires! Make your own out of 2" PVC pipe.
