Hi everyone,

did someone try the Solaris tyres with the FGX? Here in Belgium, the new rules for the coming championship asked us to use Solaris tyres but I don't even know if they are available for the FGX, which have specific wheels...can someone help me?

Best regards,
G-rem

Thanks!

Do you know how FGX drivers dealt with it (apart from changing car)?

they made plates for the inside of the tyres to make up the diameter, I would suggest measuring a set there maybe rims that will fit now

Hi all,

what is the best Pit Shimizu tyres combinaison for the FGX (mainly for indoor carpet with low-mid grip and 21.5t blinky motor)?

For the front: PS-0567 (medium) or PS-0566 (soft)
For the rear: PS-0569 (hard) or PS-0568 (soft)

Thanks a lot,
G-rem

The best setup I ever ran on medium grip with the FGX was:

PS-0561 - Front
PS-0565 - Rear

Thanks Melon, but I was told they didn't support well the higher temperature.
Plus, as a big F1 scale fan, I would prefer slick tyres

Hi guys. When using Ride R1 front tyres on asphalt what setup changes would you suggest to reduce understeer? (Ride R1's on rear also) Thanks.

Not much you can do...it is going t push like a beast on Rides. I ended up using lots of drag brake to get it to weight transition into the corners better.

Thanks for the replies.

I normally run a PS-567 (soft) on the front, which works well, but I've entered the RC Formula1 F1 Series in Victoria with a control tyre of R1's front and rear (the same as used at TITC).

So if anyone has any tips for getting a little more steering from these tyres I'd love to hear from you

heat them up a lot hotter then the rear before the race,
Do simple things, like set the car up with the rear a little higher then the front, to assist what was previously said get the weight transfer of the car working for you, also run the rear of the car stiffer to take away rear traction.

I'm thinking about getting an onroad car and i really love the look/scale of these F1 cars. Do you guys think the FGX would we a good choice for someone who wants an onroad car to drive around parking lots or other surfaces besides a well-prepared track? I'm leaning towards this one over other F1s because of the full suspension...Thanks!
