Hi Tez -

Foam will definately be quicker... maybe .05 to 1 sec. per lap but, the benefit to rubber is you don't have to constantly change your setup and gear ratio due to tire wear.

Another benefit is your tires don't "Chunk" and ultimately costs less.

Once you get your car setup - you're good to go. Then all you have to work on is motor and driving technique.

PS: you won't need the "short" shock tower if you run rubber because the tires are larger / consistant diameter.

Holy smokes... I think I just had a heart attack while shopping for an RDX.

$230 bucks in extras for carpet on top of what is considered the carpet car. Wow... on top of a $430 car. Wow how times have changed in R/C.

So what is on this shopping list:
- lowered shock towers
- black springs
- 6 degree c-hubs
- steering blocks
- updated arms
- low roll-center mounts (still don't get why these aren't in the kit)

...and I am probably still missing stuff.

Joel you are probably right. Just get spoiled by Mugen. The updates came in the newer box.

Is that what it really costs for the car and parts to get ready for carpet?

CHRIS Ill be running rubber on carpet, and you know what i just run the F'N cars as they are out of the box. I'll get springs and a oneway and leave the hopups for guys with too much time and money! LOL My FK04 is box stock and it runs with the t2,fk05 and rdx...

I dont race enough anymore to report back and say hey that 3mm chassis was the S#@$ compared to the 2.9mm chassis! LOL And that the carpet towers really improved my lap times..

You know those ultra low roll center parts are 12$CND!! and you need 8 to convert the car!! WFT... lol ill pass and use a cheaper tunning option.. Dont even get me going on the $80US motor mount holy crap!!

Don't forget the 4mm chassis and offset rear bulkhead for another $200. The ultimate bumper system, and some steel CVDs might not hurt either.

Every car has hopups and upgraded parts available, especially one that's been on the market for two years. I'll take updated parts on a proven chassis over releasing a new chassis every year.

The low roll center blocks don't work well with rubber tires. I can't decide if the carpet spec kit is designed with foam or rubber in mind. Either way, it's nice, at least, that Corally makes parts available with foam carpet racing in mind, especially considering how specialized it is. There's plenty of larger companies that don't produce these kinds of parts for their cars.
