Has anyone tried the new F104 tires from Sweep?

Would be interested in comparing these to Pit Shimizu for traction:

http://www.sweepracingusa.com/110-F1_c_32.html


Sweep Racing’s F1 tires are designed to fit F104 style chassis.

Unlike others, Sweep's F1 tires were designed with both Asphalt and Carpet surfaces in mind!

Tires are the most important item on any race vehicle; without the right tire for the track conditions changing elements on the setup may waste valuable pit time! Start with the right tires, Sweep Tires for your machine!

For carpet racing testing has show the Super Soft rear and medium-hard front to be a good starting point.

For asphalt racing start with following recommendation: Choose the rear compound first (by track temperature rating) then use the front compound to fine tune to your preference. Typically we start with the front tires one or two step harder than the rear.

Hot Weather (Track temp 95F+)
Front: Hard~Medium. Rear: Medium


Warm Weather (Track temp 70F-90F)
Front: Hard. Rear: Soft


Cooler weather (Track temp 50F-70F)
Front: Medium~Hard. Rear: Super Soft~Soft


Cold weather(Track temp below 50F)
Front: Soft~Medium. Rear: Super Soft



Assembly tips:

Peel the paper off the included inserts, stick adhesive side on the wheel (please do not mix front to rear inserts), flip the tires inside out to covered the wheel with rubber tire. be sure to gluing bids sits right on wheel. (please assemble with Sweep Logo placed outside of the wheel)

Place small drops of Sweep CA glue as shown image below, placing the bidding area back on the wheel, place a rubber band over to secure the gluing job and hold tire in place.

Tuning tips:
prepare a run with Sweep X2 compounds on rear of Sweep F1 tires first then start runs compound on front tires too inside half first, increase the amount of compounds until you have just right amount of steering for you.

There is a forum started here on RCtech for those tires. I saw at one point they were having some manufacturing problems with the inserts not being correct, but it looks like that has been taken care of. Sweep product in general is really good and I imagine their F1 tire will also be.

Default problem Ride R1/F104 v2

hello
I tried to mount the sets R1 Ride (26022 and 26023) on my F104 Pro II.
no problem for the rear, but the front wheels can not be mounted.
bearings inside the rim (original Tamiya) seem to be too broad and difficult to enter into the slots wheels Ride. I can set them up, but forcing too. and when I tighten the nuts of the wheels and I'm running them, they rub somewhere to not be able to rotate freely.
I searched, but I did not find any solutions. can you help me?
thank you in advance.

For some reason the Ride wheels have a smaller inside diameter and will rub the kingpins.

I had to make the bearings able to fit in a little more depth in their bores. I am disappointed that here has not mounted without rectification.

I had the problem too. The bearings fitted but the kingpin rubbed on the wheel. If you put 2.5mm shims under and above the steering hub you will clear the wheel with the kingpin and have 5mm of ride height.

Hi all, I just ordered the dark titanium version of the v2.

I would like to get setup help for med/high grip carpet .

21.5t blinky,shorty lipo, pit 571 and 572 tires.

Next race is on a bit bumpy carpet, one long straight otherwise tight(90-180deg) corners.


I have driven the X1 for about a year now(I have won all the races here with it) and wanted to try something new.

This is my first non t-bar car and need assistance.

Looks like a complete new car

I just hope the new front end is interchangeable.
