Tires

Can bald tires make a difference in your speed? When I take off I have bad wheel spin so I can accelerate like it should. Could it be tires? Or do I need control arms

If I understood your question correctly, yes you will be slower cause your spinning the tires. Spinning ain't winning lol

Tires can do a lot. I had 2 different types of tires. 1 set is unidirectional, meaning you cant rotate them to the other side of the car. The other are standard all season bidirectionals. On dry ground, they seemed fine but on wet ground, the bidirectionals wouldnt grip for ****. If i try to launch when its dry, i waste so much time burning out. But my tires are cheap anyway.

You would be surprised of how big a difference temperature affects traction. It's why no tracks are open in winter.
