In the rear and they are 14mm (F1 size), not 12mm (TC size).

I'm interested in seeing if the WRC rubber tires are larger in diameter than the other F1 tires. They certainly look to have a lower aspect ratio (profile).

There is a post in the WGTR thread that says they are just re-branded Pit Shimizu 571/572.

They are similar, work on Tamiya foam rims and are belted. They have great traction start to finish and we're developed with the new carpet in mind. We're on the old carpet and are running WGT-R. I've ordered a set of tires to try on the F1 as they just seem to work.

They are exactly the same dimensions. In the class you are allowed to trim the rubber flap and mount them opposite with the low profile side facing out. Trimming the flap is optional. I've done a set both ways, no advantage. It will make your car 2mm narrower as the thick rubber for the flap is now on the inside.

Howard,
The CRC tires are rebranded Pit 571 and 572 tires. The WRC tires are not. (at least I don't think so)

Yes, that's definitely my mistake for not reading correctly. I've never heard of WRC or P-One, but I now have a very good reason to check into them!

That was my mistake. The rears are 14mm hexes. My fingers were typing faster than my memory.

That body can also be purchased seperately and used on any F1 car.
(there are also nice decal sheets available for that body like the LeMans R18 en 919)
