We run rubber because it is what people already have. If we went to foam it means everyone would have to buy tires. I know if we did that some would not bother and stop racing.
The compound works. A quick test and we gained 1 second a lap on a 9 second long course.
You know the guy that beat you at the last race? It was not because of his car, or motor, or battery, it is because he was a better driver. Now go practice so you can beat him.
