    ^^ Best tires for that are the old school Proline 40 series or LPR size Crime Fighters and Bow Tie tires. I don't like any new tires on the market :) These will need 40 series or LPR wheels...

    ^^ make sure to tape them and balance them. Night and day difference when they are taped and balanced. Much more controllable. The balancing helps you launch harder under control.

    ^^ FoamTac looks interesting. I'm going to use it on metal screws. I've used Vibra-Tite on the plastic ball caps and it works well.
