Ok what do I go with.. I want more control of the car and want to race at the higher 50mph speeds..
Do I go with
jaco foams ?
HPI 4495 X-Pattern Belted Radial 26mm
Or the HPI X Pattern Pro?
I wanted some X patterns but my lhs was out so I went with these HPI super radials. (Part # 4520) These hook up real nice on the asphalt and I am very pleased. Here is a link to what I'm running currently for wheels and tires.
These tire aren't on your list but they are pretty awesome.
From what I understand foams are best if the surface you are running is warm/hot. that being said i havent used them. i know that D-compound Hpi x-patterns grip great. I think the pro compound will grip well, but them are softer so they wont last as long.
STRC Slash 4x4
Hobby Hut Raceway, Audubon Pa.
Hands down best traction for speed.
Just do not expect them to last long.
Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.
Ok fellas if someone would (please) inbox me on info for the Jacos that will fit our 1/16 cars and still fit a stock body that would be great.
I just installed the 4-Tec tires on my car. Haven't had a chance to take them outside with the snow and such but they do have some stick to them. Plus the 4-Tec is stated to go 70+mph...
The Super Derecho
I have the Hpi x-patterns, 4-tec wheels, and custom foams. The custom foams (gone bananas) work the best followed by the X-patterns while the 4-tec wheels last.

How can I get a pair from him? and what rims you have?
I forgot what rims they are. I just found the set in my spares bin. I posted the info on the foam tires in the thread below:
