Tires are critical to any racecar’s setup, and that’s especially true for drag racing. Traxxas now offers new Drag Slash tire options with a thicker carcass and “sticky compound” rubber formulation for enhanced traction, control, and tire life. Mickey Thompson ET logos and replica Weld Racing wheels deliver style to match performance as you enjoy these benefits on the track.
Thicker Tire Carcass
The new Sticky Compound tires have the same outer dimensions as the stock Drag Slash slicks but feature a thicker carcass for even more consistent performance. The thicker construction reduces high-RPM expansion to improve stability down the strip, and the extra material helps the tread hold heat to ensure maximum traction at launch. The sticky compound tires feature a thicker carcass than the stock Drag Slash slick.
More Grip, Less Wear
The specially formulated sticky compound improves grip on a wide range of track surface types to deliver harder launches, shorter ETs, and greater control from start to finish. More traction also means reduced tire spin, which extends tire life.
Available Mounted and Unmounted
The new sticky slicks are available mounted on Weld Racing replica wheels in your choice of three finishes, with standard Drag Slash foams installed. Or, get the new slicks unmounted and pair them with the new firm-foam inserts to further hone performance to your local track.
Mounted tire options
You can get the sticky slicks unmounted, or on Weld replica wheels in three styles.
