Hey guys, new to F1 RC. Here are a couple pics of something I put together, hopefully in the right direction.. Wondering what a good set or options for rubber tires on asphalt would be. I pretty much have had my fun bashin these tamiya tires and lookin for something with more grip for racing. I ordered some Pardus racing tire set and some SXT2.0 sauce in hopes of getting with the program.. wondering if this will help and also is there an advantage to groved tires?

Looks nice!

Will you be at UF1 round 1 on the 16th? Look out for me and I'll help you get set up.
Tires for rd1- Shimizu 71 and 72's, with SXT 3.0 were vary fast last week while testing at WCRC
Extra soft top spring, black side springs, 10wt oil for side dampener and loose center pivot screws. Start with med front springs.

Exotek makes the kit. I got it from tqrcracing.com

It's made for the f1r exotek conversion kit, but you can retro fit the kit to anything with some tools and creativity.

You'll have fun. All skill levels running F1 that day.
Also, if you don't find a teammate don't worry, you don't have to have teams to race.

542222 F104 High Traction T-bar seems to be the ticket around here for rubber tires...

the T-bar that comes off the F104WGP version is also good.

I got them from f1paintlab.com theyre super nice to work with. The vinyl just falls over all the details and he does a great job printing the pattern with metallics. One sheet does a whole f1 with a little to spare.
