Something sticky like: http://www.schumacher-rc.com/product...roducts_id/704

There are other compounds as well. Check out the list: http://www.schumacher-rc.com/index.php/cPath/93_65

rubber tires are as good as driving on rims for the fusions. Foams are the way to go but I am able to still spin my car out with 1/10th foams on it, and i dont think my engine is even tuned for max output either..

On a track foams are the best, for street racing the rubber tires work great. Much more traction than on just rims.

If Schumacher sold foam tires I would be selling them, but they do not offer foam tires any longer so I dont have the option.

.....................Calandra Racing sells 35mm wide rear tires that are alot wider than your typical 1/10 foam tire you may want to try some of them out . They were my first upgrade when I got my fusion and they really helped I got alot more traction with them. Another option is to get some Wolfpack Radicals tire adapters that will let you put 1/8 scale foams on your fusion contact Wolfpack Radicals for more info.And here is a link for Calandra Racing http://www.teamcrc.com/crc/

RC Superstore, rubber tires dont provide nearly any traction for the fusion, they make good drift tires, other than that, braking, cornering, and acceleration will be very off with these limited traction tires. Foams offer much better traction in all these areas. In my opinion, rubber tires are never the way to go for nitro rc's, i see them as only being good for electric cars.

Thats Vortex21 Nitrohead

Anyway, back on the topic. Foams tires can be very good, at a decent price along as where you are driving your car is fairly clean. The best rubber tires can aparrently have more grip than 35 sh foam tires but they are much more expensive.

Try the Calandra Racing Concept rear foams they are 35mm wide especially if you have a big block or modified motor they will give you more grip.
