Raw Speed - Slick (161101) 1/10 Buggy Rear Tire: Fits 2.2 inch industry standard wheels.
The Slick, buggy rear tire is the ideal tire for ultra high grip surfaces where slicks are required.
(Tires come with closed cell inserts)
Double yellow slicks are by far the best tire are my local indoor dirt track. They provide the perfect amount of grip with a compound that’ll last you many many race days before becoming squishy and blown out.
At my local track I have seen a few guys try out slicks but was skeptical on how I would like them being the surface is ozite carpet. I figured I would give them a shot. After some light breaking in at home I would sauce these tires before going out each time and to my surprise I loved how they handled for my driving style. Sometimes thinking outside the box pays off.
I run slicks on carpet and normally run AKA slicks. I decided to give rRaw Speed slicks a try. They are fantastic and the best part for me is they are 2.2 and not 2.4. Love love this tire well done Jason!!!
It's a slick, what can you say? I like them! They must have been on the truck when I hit "order". I don't think I've ever ordered anything that got here this fast. When my set of super softs arrived I scuffed them up on the street then raced the in 2WD mod buggy on an indoor clay track. Straight away the grip was there. I'm really impressed with the construction. I didn't have to fight to keep the lip in the bead while I was gluing them, the molding is consistent all around, and the tire was surprising well balanced. I also really like how the carcass webbing fit the foam and kept the ballooning to a minimum. I'd recommend them for high traction surfaces. The price is great and the design and construction are top notch.
We have been looking for a slick tire with the proper carcass characteristics and a good insert for years now. This tire is almost cheating. They're fast right out of the bag, and they glue up like magic. The insert seems to be right in between the gray (probably shouldn't mention the brand) and the black. Just hard enough so that traction remains high, while not inducing traction rolls. These tires have really kind of changed the game, for me at least. Confidence inspiring! We haven't liked any of the slicks on the market for one reason or another, until now. No more Dremeling the treads off. Thank you,RawSpeed.
These tires have great grip on indoor clay! They are a high quality rubber that hooks up to the track amazingly! Give these tires a try!
I race on a med/high bite clay surface and there tires are amazing. I glued and ran them and and they were fully broke in after the first round of qualifying. I ended up winning and now a lot of people want raw speed tires.
