Default What is a good car for asphalt or tennis surface???

I am running a pro 4 right now on carpet which handles pretty well but there is a new track opening up here soon that will have either asphalt or a tennis court surface. I want to know whether or not my Pro 4 will do ok on it or if I need to consider a new roller in the very near future. What would you suggest I buy for an asphalt or tennis surface track, if anything at all.. Thanks.

Pro 4 or any top of the line cars will do the job. It all comes down to setup and skillz. A Hara's pretty dominant with the Pro4 but if you still want to buy a new roller, just checkout my sig.

Yea I've been lookin at that car. I heard the tuning options on it are endless. How is the handling on it and what do you have to buy for it that the box doesn't supply.. IE castor blocks, etc.

You can buy a few versions so it is pretty much suited to the tracks you will be running (asphalt or carpet). Try checking the RDX thread as the guys that sells and runs them are always their to help out.

I agree with danjoy,

It all comes down to your setup, tires, sometimes the body you run. and your driving styles

Look in the thread "rubber tires for dummies" They discuss endless combination of tires and inserts for all different surfaces. Those guys know what they're talking about.
