Default Best Stock Tires For SC10

I have been having a rough time getting my rtr SC10 up and down the track. I have made lost of adjustments and it has gotten a lot better, however, to day i ran a practice with some mod class tires, and it was like night and day.

I race in stock and or sportsman, So what would be the best stock tires for the sc10.

I have the sc10rtr on the front and traxass slash on the rear, and they are not doing too well

Kyosho are the softest and have the most aggresive pattern and still qualify as a RTR tire.

u could also dope ur stock sc10 tires in wd40...they will soften up very nicely. the more u do the softer they will get. what i do is spray them down w the wd40, put them large zip lock bags and keep spraying them through out the week to let it soak into the tire, then when i get to the track i will pull them out and wipe off the residue that hasnt soaked in with a towel (not the womans good one) and it will be nite and day diff with the rtr tires

A lot of tracks require a RTR tire in the stock/sportsman class. Helps control tire wars.....not sure it really works but when a full set of SCT tires can be $50 plus rims it helps the little guys save some cash. IMO

That will work but the Kyosho tire would still get my vote, tread pattern is still better.

are the slash tires reversed in the rear?(directional tread the opposite way). You could also try the HPI tires in the rear.

Be careful with the WD40...DON'T SOAK THEM in the WD40 or you'll be running them on your 1/8

I have to agree changing the tire pattern on the traxxas tires for the rear is best. Also adding some weight just in front of the rear shock tower and softening the rear shocks (but keeping your ride height) will help.

no dont soak them...just spray them down and let them soak that way after they sit for a while they will flash kinda like paint does...then just wipe the residue off with a towel and then u will b good to go
