after a while, there isn't much thread on the tyres. They drift the same as the slick version then ;)

That I understand. But how about those diamond shaped tires? - That seems to be a different kind of concept?

Yes, i think that to, but I have no clue how they drift.
Most of the people that I know are drifting those fake t-drifts.
Maybe we need to try it one time, they aren't that expensive ;)

Well, I don´t think they are quite the same. Actually they are much more slippery from the beginning. And the plastics compound seems to be completely different. So that´s why those tires are actually a unique product in my opinion, than just a fake of a brand product. ^^. But how ever you call them, on asphalt they perform great.

Whell.. It is a fact that they are copied, so in that matter, you could say they are fake :lol:
But I get what you want to say ;)
Up to R2hobbies I guess!

3th order this month there :lol:

I found out the R2 tires are made here in Hong Kong. And I can get them here for nothing. They are not branded at all. I just grabbed a few sets of the diamond cut street jam style. I will test them this week on asphalt to see how they do. The only first impression I have is they are pretty hard to get on SWP wheels.

I've heard that the Fake Streetjam tires have a little more grip then (fake) T-drifts, which makes it easier to control and gives a higher speed. But let me know what you think! :)

Put them in a cup of boiling water for one or two minutes. That should do it. - And keep us posted on your experience.

I'm running Spice brand hards on marine carpet and find them super consistent slippery tyre. I've tried almost everything from t drifts to ultra cheapies, the only tyre close to performing as well are square super hards.

On polished concrete I reckon t drifts are the bomb.

ABS on carpet at 2.28 doesn't work well.

im getting rear traction like crazy.

the carpet seems to melt onto the tire.

is this something other tires don't do?

On carpet I only run PE tires. Never had trouble with them melting, although I run a 6000kv motor. ^^

DS Racing F1-Competition :up:

Got them as a gift at a drifttrack in Malyasia from a nice guy. Gave them a try only a few weeks ago. Just marvellous.
Was very hard to find them somewhere again, finally ordered 7 sets from Indonesia :Ono

You guys found those to not gunk up at the rear end?

because it's weird, first no grip at all, then mine gunk up and there is too much grip.

Carpet ;)
it was even outdoors, with sun burning down on the carpet. Tried Streetjam PE as well and they were heating up like hell, though they are the hardest available SJ's and I had good experience with them on carpet.
Recheck your DS tires, as F2 & F3 are a lot softer than F1, in my opinion the F3 is already not suitable for CS.

I still swear by the spice hard tyres on carpet. Abs smooth from Raikou tires are good for rough car park like surfaces and wear ok. Their d68 and dxpe tires are awesome on polished stuff but yet to try them on carpet
