some said alloy pulley has less friction.

to me, alloy pulleys add up weight but it does look nice.

I go back to stock plastic pulley because the alloy pulley just wont last and heavy.

Default tyre run time

juz wanna ask eveybody's view about the foam tyres run time on the track. well, i often play at parking lot (rough & dirty surface ones) where each time i put on a new set of tyre, the handling is juz great and am able to clock a faster lap time. As the rear foams wear out gradually to about 4-5mm thinkness remaining, the handling is very unpredictable and the rear tend to step out. I run 42 Front/ 40 Rear, and the run time is about 50min.
I am keen to know juz how long can a pair of Rear 40s last on a smooth track surface? (esp. like the track Manticore runs in HK).
i dont know if i have dont some wrong settings to the car or simply just the low quality of track surface...
How does the foam reacts (performance) when they are 4-5mm in thinkness on a smooth track surface? Low grip?
cheers...
