    Tire squeel!

    I'm looking for a set of tires that will squeel on asphalt. Just like real truck tires do.

    Good luck. Our tires are really soft and only have a couple pounds on each tire. Real truck tires are harder and have a couple hundred pounds on them.
    This will TOTALLY work, saw a guy on YouTube do it

    Best bet to make it realistic is throw a smoke bomb under the body and grab some drift tires..... but those melt plastic lol.

    I found a video of exactly what you are looking for! RC tires making all kinds of noise!

    Power+Traction(Hard Compound)+Slip=Squeal.Locked diff helps with that too, since the diff usually puts powers to the outside and you need more power on the inside to make it smoke on real life, but at least locked will help.

    That video looks familiar. I couldn't get it to show up like that for some reason. That does sound good! I think everyone like a little tire noise

    Thats a situation with a lot of things working together at the right time fellas.
    I have XO-1 tires I run just as aggressively on my paved road and they dont squeal like that.
    They do however on a hot day hook up just as well .
    I run rears all around though.

    They dont look like like this for long.

    You'll notice that track is VERY smooth and has a TON of black (what I'm assuming is rubber) on it. That smooth track with the slick tires with a ton of rubber on the track will give you the squeal you're looking for. I doubt you'd get anything like that on a street... maybe a very smooth empty pool? I'd also bet that a Slash with stock tires will squeal on that track in the video too.

    Jang is the reason I picked up a Slash (and a QR-1). He gets extremely detailed on his reviews.
