Foam tires on RCP? Carpet?

With or without using traction compound?

Do you guys use only Foam tires on this RCP? Once you start using Foam tires the rubber tires will lose grip on RCP or Carpet over time and is irreversible, correct? Are Foam tires only popular in Europe so far?

Got any videos?

Sai, you might be right about the rubber tires losing traction on RCP that has been raced on previously with foam tires; Does untreated foam tires adversely affect RCP as bad though? Or is it the traction compound-residue that results in rubber tires losing traction?

I was thinking a few years back that eventully Mini-Z Pan Car/OPen-Modified would come to allow Lexan body shells and foam tires (Without RCP-damaging traction compound allowed…. Just a thought...

So long as the foams are not used with traction compound, the natural oils in the foam rubber should not affect the RCP any more than the oils in "normal" rubber tires do. It's just rubber. They definitely won't reduce the traction like running silicone tires on RCP will do.

My understanding is that any kind of coating or deposit that may appear on your track (silicone from rubber tires, or traction compound from foam tires) can be removed, either using the right solvant ("Essence F" for instance), or using a fine sand-paper.
