Oh and also try Jaco 28mm double pink/orange up front and jaco 28mm double pink in the rear. Both combo's work good on carpet.

Try some Jaco DBL PINK/ORANGE and then Jaco DBL PINK you will get lots of grip for that 9t motor.

unless ellegi has changed, they are exotic foams which are designed for asphalt, mainly nitro touring. I found that they don't provide as much traction as jaco's or trc's(also a grp product).
