It's OK Capricorn still has Groskamp, Tironi and Dankel to take care of it.

Sorry,

but this race is not about who's the best driver, what's the best car or best engine.

This race is about who spent the most time at the track before the race to test tire additives and figure out how to use them.

There's people up in front who would not be there on another track or without tire saucing.

It's no fun!

In Italy real men only race 1/8th (or bigger)

I think LC never raced 1:10th.

10th scale takes set up skills a few steps higher. The 1/8 scale boys get lost with the 1/10 setup needs. Better to race those high downforce things for them.

Real skilled racers show off in 10th scale.

Fanally it goes about the compleet package of tires (+sauce), chassis, body, engine, driver, pit-mate and the skils to get them all work together.

Jilles as an (in your opinion bad) example is doing great.

But Jilles knows more about the sauce because he's a electric touring car driver.How about mandating only foam tires in TC?

is there still an advantage when the track has a huge thick black line of grip ? i thaught that additives on an already high traction track makes for other issues, like what Dario experienced. traction Roll.

Your wrong again.

Now everybody is tire saucing and the "unfair" advantage some had is now enjoyed by all.
