Any try a good heat transfer material for a tight fit and no sauce.?
I have not heard that this should be the desired effect of heating your tires. Probably the contrary.

Heating tires is just to get the optimum temp in them so they deliver adequate grip, from the start, instead of after a couple of laps.

Remember guys that you are really looking for the wheel and insert to be warm which will keep the rubber warm. You need to make sure the warmers are on long enough to heat the entire wheel/insert as well as the rubber. If not the rubber will cool down pretty much as soon as you put the car down and make it to the drivers stand!

Anyone using them on F1 cars? If so which warmers are being used?

At our races people use the same tire warmers on their F1's as well.

Anyone using warmers for an F1? Which warmers do you use and how do you use yours?

I am starting to think this will be the next thing to go at all big races. We now run spec tires and spec tire sauce, why let someone bend the spirit of standardization and use tire warmers?

Yes. In the same way as I do my touring car. I use them always regardless indoors on carpet or outdoors. I use the muchmore warmers. The only time I don't use warmers is at some of the races I've done in Asia where the track temp is extremely high.

I don't think it's going anywhere. I don't agree that it is bending any spirits etc as everyone (around here anyway) use them as well as pretty much every full size motorsport out there and they use 'spec' tyres as well. To me using warmers makes the car so much easier (read enjoyable!) to drive from the very first corner rather than rubbish for the first 2 minutes!

I found that the MuchMore small tyre warmer cups are a slightly better fit on used F1 tyres, certainly provided you use thin tissue on them

Agree with you Dan Vector, our local track like many others would be hopeless without the extra grip created by tyre warmers, not to mention the carnage and frustration.

As far as DesertRats comment re tyre warmers bend the spirit of standardisation, totally disagree.
