Exclamation Asphalt Foam Touring

In the case, strangely our organizers have created a newest class, "Modify foam/rubber mix 5min class" but in outdoor asphalt, which totally is different as US run in carpet.

Undoubtly, in this case, i will think at foam tyre 1st, but terribly all cars must have 1500G.

Anyway, did somebody ran before foam in the asphalt?
Then what kind of foam tyres fit in this surface?
About the car transmission, will somebody suggest in double oneway or double diff?

Best regards

Thanks, about the Jaco what kind of compound do you use, what conbination, could put some examples, please?
Have you got some fixed compound tyres, like in pan cars, some compound tyres mostly then always used.
About the transmission, i think is impossible to use spool, in fact our track are so sticky then can hear the RP tyres glitching, even in the winter.
In fact in years '90 our cars run double diff with center one way.
Then purchase a foam car kit is reallly the matter, or just work in the indoor carpet ?

running double center one ways? is that what you ment?

all this type of info depends on you're track surface. someone can give you an idea on what's a good tire. but no one could ever tell you what will hook up or what's the best compound. every compound would act different on every track.

how much traction is the track?

but i have heard about people running EP touring with foams and they said its different but great

Wait, you missed some words.
Look, i said 2 diffs and oneway in the center, that 1 beside of spur gear.
About the tyre shores, is not matter, just to have an idea of the people are using. Off course if i have to buy tyres, i will try 1st the big shores front tyres and small shores rear tyres, isn't it?
