I've had my car for about a year now, and only just decided I'd like to give racing it a shot. I showed up at the track a few days ago just as they were finishing prep and opening up for practice time.
I've got a pretty good handle on things and the car appears to have adequate speed (so far) but my traction was lousy.
To save on description, this is what I was using at the time. (shut up, it's fun.
I have a new and unmodified body to use. But the only other tires I have are the stock R's.
I've searched the forum with several keywords but I am having a heck of a time getting help with 1/18 foams. I'll get lots of results but with either gigantic threads too hard to search inside for the keywords, or short threads that don't help. Google isn't much help either. Which leads me to think there aren't many options for foams -- perhaps just the Associated brand. I see T foams, but too big and I have no means of cutting.
The track is asphalt and they spray it down with soda. Do I have to settle
for the AE foams? I don't have a similar road nearby to test the R tires mounted -- would they grip well on a cleaned/prepped asphalt track?
Thanks for the help!
