Default Best truggy tires for outdoor clay track

Hey all, what are the best tires for running on a dry hard packed outdoor clay track here in Florida. I got a 1/8 Hot Bodies Lightning Truggy that came with a set of Panters and Bow-Tie's. The Panters don't have much left on them at all. I tried running with them since they were on the car and man I was all over the place slipping and sliding.

Thanks for the input.

Hard packed nothing beats aka gridirons. Holeshots are close but i still prefer gridirons.

1 race, then they'd be great indoor slicks for the great white north.

Well, I guess it is Georgia clay brought into FL. The track is in Bartow, FL and man it is hard as a rock and dry. I am new to the power of Nitro but every time I would hit it coming out of the corner the rear tires would be just spinning sideways.

Thanks
