Who says that you have to run Tamiya foam on Tamiya rims. Jaco rubber fits just fine...

The Corally F1 is a pan car with much wider tires. The F104 uses scale width tires. The Tamiya foam is pretty darn good. The Corally's can use any 1/10 pan car tires.

The availability of 1/10 pan car tires makes things a lot easier. Glueing up your own tires can be a pain in the butt sometimes.

I'm running an Alpha MK-1 on carpet. The tire choices are endless and the wide rears make for some really nice traction. On asphalt the new Alpha MK-2 would be dialed. It has a lower centered wide pod design that is better suited for today's brushless motors. Plus, each car comes with your choice of compound in BSR tires so whether you're running on carpet or asphalt you'll be getting good tires that work. Not some cheap kit tires you just throw away.

A local club racer has the Corally and it did very well last weekend against two new Tamiya F104 cars. Looked great on the track too!

Of course the Corally would do well just from the fact that it's track front and rear is much wider than the F104.

The straight up pan cars like a Corally or the old HPI Super F1 will have an advantage since they are not making compromises to look like a scale car, and they are designed 100% with racing in mind. Not that Tamiya cars are not good, but the tire situation alone will make the pan cars better.
