2wd : holeshots rear, rips (ribbed) front
4wd : holeshots all around
1/8 e-buggy : impacts, unsure of others

Shawn has this on the sticky msg:
Many tires will work.
Suggest Flip Outs, Hole Shots, Square fuzzies, Impacts, DD's, 3d's etc. Small pin tires work well.  Barcodes only work when the track is really damp (After a day of rain)

4wd m3 soft all around
2wd m4 super soft on the rear
1/8 I did soft pre-mounted impacts, but I would assume m3 soft holeshots here as well

Which classes are you running again?

For what its worth I plan on running:

spur = 46t
pinion = 16t
internal ratio = 3.38

fdr = 9.7175

... and that is with an SMC 1900kv

Order what you need from GH, don't order direct from Proline, that will take forever to arrive and cost a small fortune in fees and duty.  Order tomorrow at GH and it'll be in stock within a week.
