Has anyone tried the bmi chassis with a rubber tyre and what has been the outcome, is it still faster than the std chassis?

The attached scan is what I ended up with. It's close to the others and was a great setup. I just wish that I had more practice with it before switching to the car mid-qualifying.

I'm sure it's no mistake as many racers ran rear tires all around...

I realize this has probably been asked before, but does anyone know where I can still find a Surikan edition car?

Not a mistake. Parma Magenta front and rear.

I am used to a gummy sticky track and this gave me the steering that I like.
