The very first time i tried my hand at carpet racing, i only had a set of these to run. I was thinking these would provide very little grip and would catastrophically humiliate me at my first real race. I was badly wrong. These tires are in one word, amazing. Once i got them broken in, they would grip like no tomorrow. I had to soften my suspension as my car wanted to flip because of the more grip then i was expecting. The other great thing is that they lasted the whole day, although they did show signs of wear and tear by the last race I did. Unfortunately due to a differential failure, i didn't get to finish the last race i was in (which was the third-to-last race), but if the differential didn't fail, I know these tires would have made it to the end. I ran these on my TA02 with a Trinity Titanite 15X2 and a standard 7.2v NiMH pack and these did very well. As a basher tire, they're not half bad. they do wear rather quickly, but grip well enough to satisfy anyone who just wants to drive around. I will purchase some more of these soon so i can ready up for summer. Highly recommended.
