Because F1's don't run 19" cheese cutters in real life.

Actually, most F1's these days use rubbers anyway. The Hobart club does and we at Castle Hill do too, proper F1 rubbers grip better up there.

Considering Greg has sold all of his first order of FGX's before they even get here says to me that this will be a popular car. There has also been a lot of talk about control motor/esc at a really good price.
Independent rear suspension
Rear toe adjustment
Oil filled gear diff
Inboard rear suspension like the 1:1
Cheap

Tyre caps used to grip better still, but nobody makes them any more. The first time I saw the whole F1 field on rubbers at Castle Hill I was shocked at how squirmy they all looked compared to when I used to pilot an F103 around there. I'd been away from the racing there for several years and I just couldn't understand why they were all using such ill handling tyres. That's when I discovered that tyre caps had disappeared off the face of the Earth. I mean the rubbers are a lot better than foams at Castle Hill at night, there's no arguing that, but caps were an order of magnitude better still.

What in the world are tyre caps?

In perth its general concensus that rubber tyres work great on the tarmac track (which is quite bumpy) and foams are the weapon of choice on the carpet track.

They are rubber 'caps' that go over foam tyres. Sort of like a retread.

I've got no idea what you're talking about, everyone has seen caps. Now if you'll excuse me I have to feed my dodo bird and finish working on my XX-4 before I can relax by throwing the stick for my thylacine in the back yard.

I cant wait to fly back home... i got my f10x1 conversion parts waiting for me, and my xceed foams for my carpet car.

I'm in two minds as to what to do:
1) Install the f104 X1 rolling damper and split upper deck, heavy weight pivot post and counterweight on the carpet car (f104 pro with 103 rear tyres and 104 front end) running on xceed f103 foams.
2) Install the above mentioned parts on my tarmac f104pro which runs with tamiya rubber tyres.

According to most accounts, wide track with foams and friction plate is the setup for carpet and rubbers with split deck and rolling damper is the goods for tarmac.

Any thoughts?

He was talking about the same system as at the states with fixed timing 17.5. Hopefully a car at a speed you can really race with nice and close.
