i will most likely be running rubber tires. its a club place and we just run in empty parking lots with wood for walls. no dust or dirt, but not the best grip in the world. i will most likely run the stock 24mm slicks untill they wear down, then i will probly run 26mm radial tires because they seem to grip good on that surface with my other cars.

The stock tires aren't considered the racing tires. Good for just bashing around. Alternatively you can look others at your local track running F103s and see what tires they are running.

My recommandation would be to dump the stock tires and go get yourself some Sorex or any equivalent race tires, you'll feel better too if the car handled better.

The stock tires are really hopeless in getting the F103GT to grip.

Sorex are manufacturers of one of the best rubber tires known to RC.

I don't think it is as realiztic as F201...but for F103GT owner, it is the option.
