There are differences
On black carpet, weight is a huge factor. Mon-Tech F18 has been hugely successful since it was released. You'll see it on the majority of race winners on black carpet over the last two years -- myself, Dayger, Gerber, Barron

Notably, tamiya bodies are Heavier and you would mostly only see them run in TCS F1 races, so if you want and advantage, some bodies are only 20grams and the worst are 50grams

The only possible difference is weight. Even then it's not a giant deal.

Looks like the rebooted Shimizu line from Schumacher has made it easier to get state side with Amain. Affordable at $52 a set versus ~$70 for the CRC set premounts. Appears to be mounted on CRC wheels now too, much better than the Tuning Haus junk wheels they used to be on.

Good news as the tires were getting a bit scarce recently.

Looking to get some new front and rear wings for my F109. The current 3Racing rear wing is a bit deformed. Any suggestion on wings for minimal prep outdoor asphalt?

This deal was mentioned awhile ago, good to see the tires are out now. CRC sells a ton of the rebranded Shimizus on their pan car wheel for the rubber tire oval guys, so the partnership makes sense.

Impressive, it would be a good idea to use the P4X pro system, it would have been lighter than that :-)

Any of the Montech F1 wings will work and they are pretty strong.
