So what's your opinion on these new tires compared to the standard mini-pins?

Might not be so good on "ozite" type carpet, but should work good for what we have.

Lets fix that link: http://www.racing-cars.com/products.asp?hideall=Y&partno=news780

Jay was telling me about these last weekend. Says they are said to offer the same traction as the minipins but last longer so I'd say lets get Blake to bring some in, I'll definitely try them!

i just read a post on the b6 fb group that  grip is great but   tire life is the trade off.

guess the guy says the he also has to cut pins  to reduce traction

That's what they are saying on Rctech also.   They don't last as long as the mini-pins
