that is a quality answer! I suspected it was something like this .

I also noticed that Schumacher makes 571, 572, 573, 575 compounds. I wonder if the newer ones are the 573 &575' s as they always did wear faster.

571 & 572 are the ones that always worked best and lasted long.

Other good options out there? Not a fan of these new gravity tires, rears wear fast, fronts are too soft.

Team powers or Volante for carpet? Or should I just roll the dice on CRC/pits/Schumacher for black carpet?

Reports seem to be favorable for the new Exotek red compound tires. I haven't run them yet though as I'm waiting on the release of the updated fronts, should be this week hopefully.

It sounds crazy but I bet the ingredient is virgin rubber.

I'm interested in the new Exotek red tire too. Hope to see them in stock soon.

I wanted to get another set of red front but I think I'll just glue the sidewalls on my current red fronts to test. Wanted to test it back to back but don't want to wait forever.

Sometimes the info we get here is wrong. I'll stay with my CRC tires on carpet- they work for me!

have you seen the RCDecals in UK. He has been very good on new and old decal sheets. Been using him for a long time. You can clean his decals with anything and the ink does not disappear!

Which gear differential would you guys pick? Xray seems to be popular but it seems to have a problem keeping the oil inside. Arrowmax seems like the "better" option with its full metal housing and carbon shaft, but theres must be a reason why I dont see them that often out in the wild.

I run on an asphalt track with a ball diff and so far its been great, but would like to give gear diff a try

I just bought the Schumacher Icon gear diff for my Exotek F1 Ultra to run on CRC black carpet. So far I really like it! Price is more agreeable, too.

Built multiple Xray gear diffs. Haven't had any major leakage issues. At worst, it weeps just a tiny bit, but not enough that it required me to refill the diff often.

The Schumacher gear diff, have built two of them and 0 leakage so far. I feel the design is more leak-proof than the Xray and it is less than half the cost. The main downside is the largest spur is 88T.

The Arrowmax diff, in my opinion, is junk. I have fitted an Awesomatix gear diff to an F1 car as well and it is good too, but a little more work than the Xray/Schumacher diff.
