I am running the r2 hobbies 45 degree diamonds regular cut on asphalt and they are the shiz. Hard to put on and take off. also they are real grippy in the beginning but once you break in the tire it is all good. They are fast tires but I just tune my car to slip more. I am running a 110% countersteer with about a 7.5 final gear ratio. :)

Ive ran through a whole set of the Raikous(s45s) and I got to say they lasted forever and they have great slip/grip for everything except polished concrete( I dont run carpet).

I run on polished concrete. I'm not sure which came with my S14 kit... but they're much grippier than HPI t-drifts. Closer to a-types, but possibly a bit slower (haven't run them back to back). I'd like to find something economical that is faster than t-types on polished concrete.

R2 t-drifts are much slippier than hpi branded... great for surfaced concrete (like sidewalk, but without grain) as they are cheap cheap cheap!

I've run pretty much every R2 tire... they're nowhere close to brand name tires if you want grip. But for faster surfaces (like surfaced concrete) they are a great mix of performance/price. High Pressure Cast is my preference out of the bunch, non-treaded and incredibly long lasting.

Do u have a part # or link to the High Pressure Cast tires? I found a set on their site but it says they are rubber? Thought those would be way too grippy. Thanks
