Just a post to clarify some points about our foam tyres.
Capricorn never produce something just for design... but always funcional and innovative products.
The black wheel is of that color because it's loaded with micro carbon balls
in a specific % amount.
This because a stiffer wheel allow the foam to work in the best way and to have a longer life on the wheel due to it's less deformation.
The model turning is faster exactly bacause of the technical wheel specs.
Suspension work is made just from the shock and not from the wheel as well.
Another feature of carbon wheel is that at every ambient temperature (till 75°C) the wheel keep it's natural stiffner. Other white wheel with glass fiber, become softer every 5° step starting from a 20° ambient temperature.
Usually with an ambient temperature from 25° to 30° C we'll have a track temp around 45°-55°C or more.
U can do the same test by urself.... feeling the white wheel stiffner before to
go on the track... and after a 10min running. The white will be definetly much softer while the carbon will be the same as just took out from the seal.
Other than all this, we have other tech improvment such foam gluing that are not pubblic.
Obviously, using a stiffer Wheel, the model setup will need to be changed because the whole suspensions will react differently.
The driving feeling will be better and regular.... like u are finally who drive the car... and not the car driving u.
Capricorn Carbon Tyre Line include all kind of wheels (velocity - kyosho - mugen - serpent). We have like foam parthner, Matrix and Enneti.
by the way.... we all know that "POWER IS NOTHING WITHOUT CONTROL"
Inside the tyre box there is also included a sheet of ALLUMINIUM yellow stickers for the foam safety.
If anybody have questions...
feel free to ask .
