Proline, Panther, and Losi are my TOP. the proline tires are very good but the foams are garbage.

I use mostly Pro-Line (Crime Fighter, Bow Tie), GRP/RS (New Atomic, Jolly, Grip) and Medial Pro (Woops, Turbo, Vega, Easy, Pulsar) . I just got some Panther Chameleon that look good, I'll try them out this week end....

It just depends on the track and conditions, I change models, even between different brands....

Wooops repeated message!!!

Any way, if you describe track and conditins, we might help you select not a brand , but a few models that might work well for you (even from different brands)...

GRP Jolly.
GRP Atomic.
ProLine Bow Tie.
ProLine CrimeFighter.
ProLine Moab.
ProLine Knuckles 2.0

Bear in mind ProLine foams fall apart quickly, so ide advise GRP.

You mean theres other tires besides proline!! Just playin, proline would be my preferred choice but panther and werks would be my next choice. I have noticed that the werks tires do seem to last quite a bit longer than prolines or panthers but they currently dont have a whole lot of variety. You really cant go wrong with any of these three.

i have run some GRP's as well and really liked them. The only downside is they are more expensive than the others. I can say that they did last quite a bit longer than the other brands.

i like pro-line.. and use the TIE FIGHTER set up... Bow ties in the rear and crime fighters up front works well on loose track

The new JConcepts tires are going to set the stage for 1/10th and 1/8th Off Road Racing.


They should be out next month (fingers crossed)

Keep checking out the site www.Jconcepts.net


Later
