Default Tire treatment

Im not after grip, im in fact more interested in getting the rubber tires harder.

I want to make my own drift tires because the HPI t-drift tires does not give me the speed i want. Its in fact boring.
I have slided my touring car around when i had debree on it but the grip level was unstable due to uneven debree on the left/right front/back tires.

I have tried one prosess a little bit with some old wild dagger tires but why not ask here first.

ABS piping. its black, looks good and better grip than PVC. then drill 10-15 holes in it and fill the holes with hot glue(while on the rim). different size holes give different amounts of traction.
