Taped up the old stock tires that were laying around and did some Gymkhana (drifting) this afternoon. I would say it was just drifting but there were so many obstacles that I think gymkhana qualifies. It was real fun but I needed just a bit more traction than this gave me.
Anyone know of any cheap drift tires that I could throw on my old stock rims?
From parts UNKNOWN
could just squeeze some PVC piping over the tires
fix, run, break, repeat
Jaco foams with 12mm hex for Rustler/Stampede work pretty well for me. Just keep them dry, and find a dusty parking lot.
Old bald tires will work just fine

Unless those old bald tires are of "super soft" compound. It's Springtime. That means warmer temps on the pavement. Soft rubber sticks to the road pretty well, no matter if they're bald or brand new. Soft and SS tires are going to hook up. I love the smell of new tires btw. So, that's why hard foam tires are superior in that regard. JMO.
SPRINGTIME FOR YOU! We still have like 8 or more inches of snow/ice on the ground in colorado. Some times old bald tires are fine but they might be soft like CC said.
