Falken and BFGoodrich have'em. Nittos have a bit too much grip unless you got gobs of power. Toyo is okay from what I've seen. Never ran those on my cars. Haven't ran the Hankooks either...actually haven't seen them on much. I know there was an S14 running them in the FD series and...oh...crap...wait...Tyler is running the Hankook Porsche. Silly me. Really any tire will smoke if you have enough power. Ironically, the Scorcher TA's don't create a lot of smoke. Who woulda thunk it, right?

Now, if you're talking about smoking tires on an RC...NO SHOT! You might be able to get a bit of smoke out of Nitro, but nothing really significant.

$1.00 Smoking tires mod:


You can always pour gasoline on your abs and light it up...then drift. That'll probably damage the car, but you'll have smoking tires. And, it's rather inexpensive. Really, you could pheasibly buy a $0.99 Big lighter, pour out some lighter fluid and use the rest the light up the tires.

that reminds me of a time with my RC-10 (gold pan chassis) old balded tires (poor mans slicks) a bottle of lighter fluid and some "Back to the Future" like burnouts.

not much smoke, but cool none the less.... oh BTW dont try this at home and other disclaimers, but when you do, post pics.
