Maybe the larger rolling resistance of the Corally size wheels coupled with the low power available, levels the playing field. My lap times with my F104W are within driver error of my Corally lap times ie. sometimes faster, sometimes slower.

Get some Tamiya Indy car wheels and mount with 1/10 donuts. Proceed to go .2-.3 a lap faster changing nothing else. A lot of the Corally's advantage is in the wheel diameter.
