    imo the stock tires are an all around tire...not really race worthy...really hard so that they last a lil longer than racing tires ...so the avg noob can have more than a couple day's worth of spinning in circles
    @ 80% for years?

    From reading credible sources....S1 is the best performing tire Traxxas offers, Goosebumps were great except the foam was too soft to be consistent. Bowties are supossed to be great...gonna try them this weekend.

    i just got a set of platinum s1 tires. the stock tire make for an interesting night of racing. ive only used the stock tires on the 4wd so far.

    i have the bow ties on my 2wd slash with proline bead likes but the side walls give out before the tread does.its not reinforced inside on both sides but the hook up fairly well.
