hardwood tile floors,,, need more traction,,, try this

after running mine at the local track and cleaning the tires using a bucket of dirty water ,,, possibly mixed with buggy grip, wd40, simplegreen, and someones homeade secret sauce, along with the clay dirt,,,, the tires have become ver sticky,,,, and it doesnt spin out AT ALL ,,,,,,,,

you could do this,,, spray the tires with wd40 and let sit overnight and then wash it clean in the morning or whenever you use it next... let it dry and the tires should be z lil tacky,,,,,,, use a old toothbrush to wash the tires

I used tires from a m18.It looks cool but they are to big for it.So I took the m18 wheels off and put the real wheels on.And I also learned that if you put the m18 wheels on it will make it go slower.I think it is better if you leave the regular tires on.

Several years ago, we had some get togethers at a roller skating rink. We used foam tires with silicone sealant on them. Tape a sheet of wax paper to the table, and squirt clear silicone (from the hardware store) on it. Then roll your tires through it to get a good coat. Let it dry, and repeat as many times as you like.... They would stick like glue to the hardwood floor. Eventually, the silicone would wear down, and slowly lose traction. After finishing the day's run, you just re-coat the tires for the next outing. ...A $4 tube of silicone will last you forever.
