Rubber is what tires are made of. You wierd ass rug rats are the only TC's that run foams. In Europe they run rubber on carpet even. That's how it should be. Foam is for pan cars.

We run rubber carpet up in NorCal for some reason. Dunno why but it works. Rubber seems to help build driving skill better than foam can. But foam-mod is a blast.

I was the first person to say the Caddy pushed at my local track and I got looked at like a crack addict in a post office. Everyone used to say it was "twitchy" which I find its anything but. If your lacking rear end traction, the Caddy will be a helpful tuning tool

I run the Nemesis at the moment, the only issue is that it isn't a proper touring car, so no Stock or Mod races with it.

I have just brought a CTS-V and painting it in the same colours as the SEMA Touring Car version. Hate seeing Stratuses and 6's everywhere. Especially since the Stratus was never sold in Australia

Yeah, but it still looks wicked fast SpeedWorld Cup races the Mazda 6. If you want something realistic, paint a Mazda 6 body with a Speed World paint job.

Find it odd that a nemesis isn't a proper touring car...

In Canada eh.. the nemesis looks alot like the Sebring (canuck stratus)

It must be modeled after a production car with similiar measurements. The Nemesis is not a "true" production car. It was designed to look aggressive and have good handling.

And if the Sebring is used as a touring car in real life, then it should be fine, if ROAR/IFMAR agree.
