I never use those traction compound also for the same reason: pocket wear. The only time I remember using it was at a carpet race.

Besides our topic, you guys should have realised that Tamiya made a bigger wheel set for the F104. And for that, they came out with thinner tires. I see it both ways; big wheels so when the foams wore out, it would not scrub the chassis, thin tires to keep changing tires.

I'll try to help in whatever way I can.

I would like it if they are still able to use 103 tires.
