Does anyone know the difference between the KS and the KS-M tires?

By feel, do you mean that the total traction doesn't change much, but there may be more initial bite in one compared to the other? Does it have a different operating temperature window compared to the KS?

Thanks for the feedback. I saw Philip write a response to someone asking the same question on f- book, but tried to search and find the post for source to link here, and couldn't find it (which is why I much prefer forums for RC discussion than social media, since its easily searchable). His response was nearly identical, a different feel

Dumb it down for me I'm very familiar with Kyosho 30/20 and KS Med/Super Soft combo's. Mike, I ordered a couple pairs of the KS-M S.S. rear, your welcome to try them out this weekend.

In different climate such as Norway the KS-M tires are preferd... here at kenon most of the drivers are not brake users so they prefer the KS-M rears for better off throttle rotation

Brakes are overrated, they only slow you down!

Thanks for the info. I will need to try some out next time I hit the track and feel them for myself.

I use the KS super soft radials in the rear most of the time. So I should stay with the KS-M super softs in the new compound? I ordered some in my last order. I will try them this weekend.
