Are the foam tires more expensive to run or cheaper than rubber generally? I'm a real beginner in onroad sorry
You'll find that foams are cheaper initially to buy but, and this is a big but, they wear out fast and one set isn't enough as track conditions change. Tires are the number one major tuning item in 1/12 and if your tire set-up isn't right you will be playing catch up all day.
I found in off-road that once you find a good tire for the track you race at then you are set for the season. Same thing for 1/12, see what the fast guys are using. Remember that in 1/12 it isn't point and shoot like 4wd buggy but more of a finese and maintenance of momentum through the turns.
