What tires do you run & on what surface??
#21
In Singapore, we have far too many types of tires for drifting.
Normally, Carpet will be DS F Zero or Spice or Street Jam Carpet tires.
Normal Tiles, polished clement or rough surface, we will use DS F1 or F2 or Auotdrift (Yokomo Singapore) Progrip tires. So far tested many tires and these are some of the best so far.

my crew mostly runs DC3 / DC7 molded plastic from the philipines, good fro mostly any surface. Under xtreme heat they tend to pop off the rim.

On any hard surface (concrete, asphalt) I run R2 T-drifts. - For carpet tracks I like RC Art carpet tires best, since they slide extremely smooth.

Used to run t drifts, switched to Raikous, then switched to R2 diamond cuts. They are fucking awesome. indoor, outdoor. the best.

Have you ran the R2 Diamond Cuts on asphalt/concrete outdoors? I'm interested to hear what you think of them, since some people say they aren't very good outdoors.

try putting some weight up front and if you have any different shock springs try harder front than rear.

could someone tell me what the difference between the HPI treaded drift tires(potenzas,falkens,yokohamas etc)  and the T drifts? i have tried the superdrift radials and find them a little to grippy. i find on ebay r2hobbies have t drifts as well but i take it there are little to  no compound differences?
