For a while we ran 1/12th outdoors at Ipswich in the UK with no problem, was before Lipos but we ran 4 cell 19T motors, was great fun, so they can be run on ashalt.

These are totally kit 1/12th cars, no custom built chassis and motors in front of the rear axle.

Who is talking about the Tamiya brand tire
You can use Pitsu as these have better grip.
Not talking about A or B slicks like on the Toyota TS020.
Don't have that problem on our track.
We can run foams without prepping the track and we run 6.5 or 5.5 motors.

Sweep was working on a rubber tire for 1/12th but I haven't heard anything on them for a long time. Most likely they gave up.

Barry this is what the issue is though, that track is..well..very nice lol completely smooth, butter like and not a stone in sight so of course its feasible

we all know that they can be run on asphalt but it takes a very clean track such as that to do it!

We've tried the Pit tires on the F103...they aren't nearly as good as the Pit tires for the F104. And even on the F104 the grip isn't good...it just isn't terrible. If you try to run foams on our asphalt with no prep you'll end up doing more donuts than going straight. I'd love to not have to vacuum the track and spray sugar water every race day...but that just won't work here.
