 For trucks pinpoints ...   buggies  pinpoints and  a staggered tire on the front

I will be racing a short course truck and a 4wd buggy, well racing it's quickly said, I will be more practicing and on racing day observing until I'm ready to race I don't want to be one more obstacle for the other driver. I will get some indoor tires then. I already bought 3 sets for outdoor for the sct and the 4wd buggy. My buggy still need to be assemble, it's in the mail right now and for my sct I have to buy the strc aluminum chassis as my last slash upgrade

 Racing is the best practice !

4wd sc  pinpoints all the way around

4wd buggy pinpoints on the rear and  staggered tires on the front

Okay thanks for the info and normally how many sets of tire people use during one season? I bought 3 outdoor sets for each my buggy and sct and for inside can I be good with 2 or should I get 3?

Buy one to start and then you can buy more as needed there's a hobby shop on site that carries the tires everyone uses

Blue Schumacher mini pins last longer than proline pinpoints. As well as Schumacher staggers in blue last longer than the proline wedges

I was hesitating between the  blue or yellow so which one will have a better traction?

blue are harder and have less wear, longer life. the yellow softer, you might notice more traction on hard surface like plywood jumps , but it would be negligible. and we try and have every surface covered with carpet if possible

okay I ordered the schumacher minipin in blue and the schumacher stagger in yellow, I can't find them in blue anywhere and for my order with begoracing, I ordered last night and stuff is already in the mail, I received my tracking number already :), the buggy won't run till summer so I'll have the time to built it nicely, I already bought my oil diff and shock oil, all the wheel for outdoor 3 sets of jconcept 3ds for rear and 3 set of jconcept goosebump for front and I have 2 set of wheel for carpet, should be good for a while :) I prepared my Slash as well, I ordered the STRC hard anodized LCG chassis, the rest was already upgraded with STRC shock tower, direction, shock power stroke from proline , main shaft TEKNO big bone and MIP race duty driving :) the only thing I need to buy now will be the carpet tire for sct
