Follow Dan's advice. I'm at 2.75 on a huge carpet track with a Motiv 21.5. Blinky. No fan.

Had it full throttle for about 20% of the lap aside from the straight.

At ETS with hobbywing 21,5 motor and blinky, the winner run as high as 39 pinion which is 2.46 with the new Ride XR tires. Last year the max was 2.55 with the R1 tire which are larger a bit.

That is with a fixed timing motor. Plus on the huge Hudy arena track, they were running as high as 2.2. XR tires are also smaller in diameter than pit tires too so I usually gear it a tooth or two higher.

My 2.7-3.0 recommendation is primarily for adjustable timing motors.

X-Ray driver Jan ran it on the latest ETS race and won. His car looked a bit loose though.

I lost a slight bit of grip and steering when swapping from carbon to aluminum. The car felt more consistent though and after a few setup changes, I was almost as fast as my carbon car. I will tell you this though, it is nice having all that weight down low. While other F1 cars were traction rolling that day, I didn't have that problem at all. I'm still working on the setup to regain some speed.

Has anyone tried out the sweep v2 tires on carpet? If so what compounds are you running on the front and back? I'm looking at getting some that are preglued because I hate glueing tires. Are there any other f1 tires that come preglued?

Yes, fixed timing. Do you know what the fix of the Hobbywing is. I am guessing 27,5 degrees but I am not sure. With variable timing motor what endbell timing you would suggest to run with 2.7 ratio?

I can't suggest a specific timing degree since all motors are a little different.

Super soft rears and medium fronts on a medium to high bite carpet.
Tires seem to be very good. Could even go to a hard front.

Same here. My aluminum chassis felt great at the Masters race in Shenzhen. Pit tires on some weird non-CRC carpet. I popped in softer front springs and it had plenty of steering. Testing on ETS carpet next week.

I've tested them on the older CRC carpet and found the Med-Front + Soft-Rear are balanced like the Pit 571/572 combo. I will test the Super Soft-rears on our new ETS carpet soon. I could see Hard-fronts working on some cars. I doubt you will see people running anything other than soft or super soft rears.

I just ordered a set of pre-glued Pit 571/572 from The Boarder.com. They are mounted on Tuning Haus wheels.

I've got my Motiv 21.5 and R1 21.5 set to lower-mid 40 degrees as measured on an analyzer. These two motors really don't have a "sweet spot" so you can up the timing to whatever amp draw (heat+battery capacity) you're willing to accept.

Yes, but you'll want the Tamiya versions, they are of much higher quality.
