Default F1 Questions

I am looking to get into F1 here locally and wanted to know from others what works and what doesn't, so I have some questions...

I was looking at the new Tamiya F104XI, but I was wondering other things like:

What rubber tires work well on carpet?

What is your standard format for qualifying and racing?

What motor and speed control combination seems to work well for the Open classes that I see people running?

I know the car is pretty new but is there a basic setup that works well on carpet?

Any information would be helpful...

Thanks

Here is a link for the F1 racers out here with the motor and battery rules and classes at least is something to give you and idea of what the guys are running here in So Cal...the correct rubber tires work great on carpet. They are called Shimizu.


Here is link at a carpet track that uses rubber tires on F1

Thanks, it seems like Shimizu has lots of options. I found some more info on uf1series.com about some tires that were tested. It sounds like these might be good, but really have no idea;

Front Tires Pit Shimizu F1-S (PS-0571)
Rear Tires Pit Shimizu R1-H (PS-0572)
