    Differences in Traxxas branded SC tires?

    Hi fellas. I am going to run in a spec slash class at my local indoor black carpet track. One of the rules is that you have to use stock traxxas tires. I was curious if there were any differences between all the Traxxas tires. The Khumos, BFG's etc. It seems like the tires that came on my platinum are different than the ones that came on my Fox truck. IF there is a difference, any suggestions for carpet would be much appreciated.

    Any Traxxas sct tyre in an s1 compound is what you're after. Much grippier.

    Most spec class races don't allow the S1. Only the "standard" kit compounds.

    OP, I would check with your local track. Rules are different everywhere, but I know most (including mine) don't allow them.

    BTW, I did try the S1 compound at my local tracks and on the carpet and the turf track the S1's were the worst of the bunch. The "harder" standard kit tires performed a lot better.

    Thanks for the replies. Going to go practice tomorrow. I have a few different sets that came off various trucks. Going to try them and see if any make a difference.
