No the carpet is not staying, But the traction you get is like being on carpet
and the surface doesn't wear out. The asphalt is a special blend like they use out in cal. for indoor asphalt tracks. Grip is insane. To get foams to last we are using nitro foam and the wear is very low approx. .5mm on the dia for two 5-6 min runs with 19turn in the car. More pit space is also on the way.
oh 37 shore on the rear and 37-40 up front depending on your car.
Well-if grip stays up and a groove forms-tire wear will go down even more in time I bet. I thnk all new poured surfaces have very sharp corners on the substrate (sp?) which dulls down s more cars run. 0.5mm is not bad for two runs at all.
The track was great yesterday. I had traction issues with the 1/12 but the TC was dialed. The asphalt was more of a challange to drive on but it was a LOT more fun. I can't wait until Tuseday when I can get out there and run again. I'll feel better about pushing the car a little harder when the boards are put down.
Its well worth the 30 min. drive to get there!! :wave:
Cant wait for this belly to heal so I can get back myself! wont be able to carry my full kit, but I can bring out the pro 4 and play, was getting it realy dialed too!, Some reduction in overall traction would be ok! I really like asphault best and to be able to run it in the winter is realy great!
The track looked great today. All of the boards and flappers are in. No more Road Ramp (sorry Dome) system. Saw a few guys running rubber tires. I know that I will be testing some on Thursday. Everyone needs to get over there and check the place out. I forgot the date but racing will start real soon.
