I guess if you race rubber you race rubber. And as far as being more relaxed outdoors, we were racing with 2 consistant A main racers at big events. We all trued our tires down to 58-60mm. However, tire wear was good. I still have the tires, they just did not wear so much.

We have limestone base asphalt up here, not coral base which is probably more common in FLA, and may be harsher on tires. I don't know.

The foams don't react as harshly to temp changes as rubber did for me, and you could run mod without as much "tip toe"-ing, worrying about smoking the tires. I'm not a rubber tire or asphalt racer like i used to be but I liked foam a lot.
