Default Racing on Tamiya drift tires

Yes, you read that right. Here in Japan there is a new street japan class, where the control tire is the Tamiya drift tire. Anyone with any experience, think I might give it a go!

I've been running these on my TA05 for a month now. I'm not into racing, but it's been fun (and challenging) to take around the track. It'll be interesting to see how this pans out. Setup suggestions would be nice.

I'm currently running -2 Camber in front, 0 rear. Car is handling pretty stable in the straights, but can be whipped around pretty easily.

Are there more rules/specs for this class listed anywhere? Would be interesting if we could start a class at my local track.
