574/575 are meant for cooler weather. No higher the 20 degrees Celsius ambient temps or 37 Celsius on the track.

I dont think the track surface was over 37c when I was playing at night. I do have 572 so ill give that a try.

I just hope aside from prematurely wearing out the tire, I didnt do any long term damage to them.

Wow, I have run few hours on them and they looks like on pic.
Most wear is on the outer edge so it is round now.

Where did you get that body (I looked for the '93 McLaren and couldn't find it)?
Sorry for offtopic...

Can someone please confirm the order of the Pit tires from Soft to Hard. The pit website is a bit confusing with the way they have named them. I have asked this before but there are two new tires in the mix 574 and 579 and would like to know where they sit.

Front:

PS-0571 RACING SLICK TIRE, FRONT , SOFT
PS-0573 RACING SLICK TIRE, FRONT , MEDIUM
PS-0574 RACING SLICK TIRE, FRONT , SOFT
PS-0577 RACING SLICK TIRE, FRONT, F3 MEDIUM

Rear:

PS-0572 RACING SLICK TIRE, REAR , MEDIUM HARD
PS-0575 RACING SLICK TIRE, REAR, R1 SOFT
PS-0578 RACING SLICK TIRE, REAR, R3 MEDIUM
PS-0579 RACING SLICK TIRE, REAR , SOFT

Also has anyone tried the foam inserts? Any feedback.

PS-0550 FRONT SETTING FOAM, WHEEL SHAPE , SOFT
PS-0551 FRONT SETTING FOAM, SHEET , SOFT
PS-0554 REAR SETTING FOAM , HARD

From what Ive gathered:

Front 571 and 573 are their F1 compound
Front 574 and 577 are their F3 compound.

Same goes for the rear

Rear 572 and 575 are their R1 compound
Rear 578 and 579 are their R3 compound

What I was told, their "1" compound are the better compound and would give better grip, where as the "3" compound have better wear resistant but less grip.

I have not tried their different foam inserts, I just went with the included foam inserts included in the tire and so far theyve worked out pretty good

What are you using to glue rear tire inserts together? I'm using rubber cement, is there a better product?
Thanks

I did experiments with various glues on the standard Pit Shimizu 572/575 insert, trying to see which gave a good bond w/o leaving a hard 'bump' at the joint.

I tried CA tire glue and DAP contact cement, Loctite 200 adhesive, and 3M Super 77 adhesive, all available at my local hardware store.

My results were:

Loctite 200 - good bond, softest joint
3M Super 77 - good bond, soft/med joint
DAP Contact cement - good bond, med/hard joint
CA - best bond, but hard bumpy joint

I switched to the Loctite 200 adhesive and have been happy with it. I'd use the 3M Super 77 as well. Just follow the instructions for the 'permanent' bond. Use the glue very sparingly and it'll work great.

Hope this helps,

Mark
