Everyone knows that, when running the stock soft rubber tires on concrete, there's PLENTY of traction. And, it can be hard to lose that traction, even when you PUNCH the throttle. So, when I sped down the driveway, turned while reverse-punching the throttle, I flipped the thing, and this is the result:

Are you refering to a racer or overland? My F40 skates around on carpet with 30's on the rear and 20's on the front. Outside on my driveway it will not roll, it flips. It has a few good marks on the roof from skidding.

You sir are correct, it's an Iwaver.

I think I'll just keep one body for showing, one for racing. ;)

both. i have 2 racers and 1 ol. I have thin carpet which i have to keep sure I dont go full speed or Ill roll it, flip it, with soft tires it doesnt realy flip but its harder to control with the traction.

My carpet the cars usualy slide around with the stock tires, but a few spots they stick and roll over. At least my old 01 Skyline did alot, My F40 on the other hand don't roll as well cause the wide rear hence the "flip". The flip it gets some air under it, the roll is just a roll. My Sky is on an 02 chassis now, it's alot harder to flip it (may be the stock motor in it right now).
