Question SC tires for carpet?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hi all,

I have a used SC10 2wd coming in the mail, with Pro-Line Calibers all around (unknown compound). Would any of you SC guys be willing to suggest a carpet tire for Motor City?

Try the Calibers. They worked well for me. Hope to see you racing in 2012 at MotorCity!

We found on the 4x4 scte's that the Proline suburbs in the clay compound worked very well. I believe Dave Henry was laying down times faster than many of the 1/8th scale and 1/10th scale buggies with a SC truck.

If you can get Schumachers in the mini pins, get them. That is what I have been using and I know a lot of the guys in Hamilton have been using them as well.
