It would be most similar to marka v1 rear tires , but a little more grip and the grip last as long as u can use the tires ride height. It would be in between marka v1 rear tires and slot car sipt29 tires.

So far...slick and radial rears. Slick fronts. Ive been getting more grip (rear), last longer. Fronts last longer. Right now i have some fronts on that give me a slight bit more grip than trued 15X....which is what i wanted for this particular car.

Good to hear about the extra life. How would you compare to comparable Marka tires?
You think the slick rears will be able to handle mod lipo? I really wish the tires were not dependant on the treads for grip, cause then it really doesn't matter what setup you run no treaded rear tire works without the tread.

Very comparable to Markas. All you can do is try them. You guys run crazy fast stuff so I can't answer that. I think you will be happy.

They will be very happy once they try it... I've been testing them for the last few weeks. Dev knows the last two weeks I've been braking track records and hot laps with an autoscale against ther lighter lexan bodies . PN has them med, soft, and super soft front and rear radial and slicks. I've tried and tested them all for the last few weeks. I found the the perfect setup/sweet spot for my driving style. These new KS compound tires is going to make miniZ a lot more fun to race with

The little orange bird told me 95% of shipment will be ready for sale tomorrow. Be ready for the price increases. It's not going to be an arm or a leg type of price but that I guess will depends on the person who is buying. Me personally don't think the cost hike is an issue. Why you ask? A. Has an increase amount of noticeable grip. B. They will have more consistently do to there new way of building process. C. They will last 3-4X longer then current PN tires.
