    I dunno about all that... depends on your level of commitment I suppose.

    My simple answer is its usually a question of tire choice. There are some excellent choices for street tires out there.

    After that we get into tuning the suspension, but then it depends on the course, the surface, the temprature.... and all of that takes experimentation that only you can do. If you're just looking for a canned answer, 50 wt shock oil, ride height with arms level to ground, street fighter tires.

    17mm adapters, wheels of choice, and 3.2 size slicks. That will have all your grip needs covered, maybe a little too much grip.

    For bashing I love these tires:



    And at 20 bucks for 4 glued tires/rims, they're a great value.

    But for racing... It's tough to beat street fighters.

    You could also go with the Dynamite Robbers! Work great and $6.00 cheaper a set than the street fighters!

    I think the link you're looking for is ebay seller suprasales. He has a pretty good selection of tires.
    My Black & Blue Rally is faster than your color...

    lulz, I got PM'd about those too.

    I can't link you to an outside retailer, but I can tell you to search ebay for "1/8 slick" and look for that same rim. Its a preglued tire/rim sold by a handful of different people.
