    What tires do you run on carpet?

    I see a lot of 18th running slicks, but i can't figure out what ones to run.. i just upgraded GTR shocks and metal gear servo... WOW what a difference... but now i need some wheels and would like some advise... i guess next will be cvds and ball diff.. then brushless... oh this hobby is fun...

    What servo did you go with? People at my track are running sweep or muchmore tires either 28 or 32 compound.

    Ones that are toward the softer side of this chart are better for carpet but most are good on carpet due to the carpet fibers Hers a link to a chart from pro line, http://prolineracing.com/images/howt...poundChart.pdf
    I would stay to the softer side.

    Softer compound is better on carpet.
