Am I right is saying that although no spikes are allowed, you can use a tyre which has had all the spikes cut off?

Yeap, Mark Penny ran some mini pins with the spikes cut off and dremel into a slick tyre, So works pretty well for all those old sets :)

Yeah you can. I was using a set of Marks yellow minispikes that he'd dremeled the spike down to make it into a slick last week, and they were pretty good. The general feeling is that these are probably the best tyre for the job! I'll give you a look at them tomorrow at drop inn.
