The Capricorn tires I still have are the same way. The foam rubber is awesome but you better be a world-class driver using them (not hitting/tapping anything).

Okay, I bought some Matrix with carbon rims, I hope they are good.

I don't know if there are a wing included in the body, in case not, where can I buy one? I guess there's not.

I'm new to onroad and looking to buy a kit as well. I like the price for the RB Speed .12. Is it really good (or some what competative) at the price point less 200?

Cool, but I will be using it as a primary. I just want to know if its worthy enough for a frist time on road racer or should I just buy a 400$ engine.

It will defiantly be enough.
A lower end, not modified, engine is a lot less critical on tuning saving you a lot of frustration and $$ when you're starting out.

Personally I would recommend the Novarossi Sturm engine, it's cheap, easy to set but has more than enough power for the beginner, or even everyone competing at a clublevel.

Spent the money you save on tires and fuel, and keeping the car in perfect condition.

I ran the RB Speed 12 with the midwest series all last season tuned easy ran great and was more than pleased with the performance coupled with a novarossi 2660 and medium conical header more than plenty fast carburated cleanly in the infield and gave up very little on the long straights

Good to hear, I'm sold on it. At 155$ I might buy 2 for my novice season!

The RB's are a great little engine but you should also seriously consider the Novarossi engine. Even the Novarossi Flash or 353 can be picked up fairly cheap these days and both would be slightly quicker than the RB I believe.
