I think you will be traction rolling all over the place.

Bow ties work great on loose outdoor tracks. I’ve never raced AstroTurf with an 1/8 scale buggy but I wouldn’t think they’d be worth much at that due to the loose loamy characteristics of the tires.

they would be horrible i think, the pins would flex so much that the car would break loose erratically around corners. or traction roll uncontrollably.

For astroturf, pins are the way to go.

Look into these:
