Since they're so hard to get in the States, has anyone had any other success on wet tracks? What other tires might work?

On a track that is wet and greasy the best bet is probably Pits D20 Slicks. Another way to go would be to get hold of a couple sets of rims and buy really soft 1:8th donuts and make your own. They will work well in damp conditions. Look for 20/25 shore rears.

OH i know that. This is more for my local track. after and evening rain, unless there's sun the next day, the track is too slick for foams the majority of the day. Just for my own fun, i'd like to change my setup and be able to run.

I drive an MTX-3. I asked the Mugen driver's here who may have had success driving in the wet for some advice on what tires might work. I did my work. I did a search and read through 2 pages of results and didn't find anything like this. Who knows, you might learn something. As if there aren't enough truly useless replies like yours mixed up in this thread, this one could help others. Why don't you go start a "Smart A$$" thread somewhere else.............................................. .................
(I can hold that period button down to seem condecending as well as you can)

What's your setup right now? I saw you don't have any setup tools so you may not know what setup you have.
