Just some clarification on the 1/12 section.
Tyres made a big difference, especially as the choice of control additive, SXT3, was not good, it doesn't work properly on the ETS carpet.
Hagberg struggled on his Hotrace tyres, but we know they work well on the that carpet when a decent additive can be used (which is why he's won the 1/12 Euro's twice)

Heard that as well. We used Hudy Carpet Gripper on virgin ETS carpet at our AOC round. After an hour of running, grip was no problem.

Bare in mind though...at aoc, and other events that 12th have run on ets have had rubber tyres on at some point. That makes a massive difference to how the grip is generated. At the world's it was virgin carpet, but with foams only. Which is also a contributing factor along with the additive (ets carpet is also quite abrasive initially, hence also the high wear)

Does anyone know if LiveRC have an archive of the 1/10 results?
I can find the 1/12 results, but nothing for the touring cars.

Actually found it indirectly, but don't understand why when I searched for it nothing showed up.
