Need front tire help. My front tires are getting dirty after about 3 laps in? I'm running on black indoor carpet. I've had tried my sweep soft and medium and my gravity front tires. Same results. My rears are fine. This is causing my car to have extreme on power push. I'm cleaning and saucing and a mild wipe down. I've tried going out damp and dry. Same results... I'm using stx lite and tried medium too. Same results. I'm an experienced racer for years and can't figure it out. Any help would be great. Thanks.

I think the car is pushing, tires getting hot, and then picking up stuff from the rug

is it the whole tire or just the part you didn't sauce?
If you are partially doping front tires, that is the usual cause. Most of the time I have had it happen, it's the part of the tire that was not sauced.

I have had success doping the entire front tire and immediately wiping off the area I dont want sauced. For whatever reason, this seems to stop the tire from picking up glaze.

Okay guys something I played with at the Birds a portable Tire warming system. Any tire warmer with a 3 cell battery. go up to tech with the tire warms on- take off for tech- then re-install while waiting to go on the track. Tires are whatever temp you want mine was 120 degrees when it hit the track. I also applied my sauce on the tires in the pits and had it bake in. All you have to do is find something to mount it to and make it portable and keep the care and warmer system from falling off. If you want a picture I can only seen by email.

I ended up borrowing a set of CRC f1 today and they worked great. Full sauce and no carpet dirt after the run. Car was good.
Thanks everyone for the help.

Nice !
The old 1995 Corally is still a very good car. We showed that at some vintage races.
During the first lockdown I ordered some Fenix body's. They fit very nice on this chassis and behave very well during races. Give it a try !

Default 2021 F1 shells

So, new F1 season liveries are out. Which bodyshell will be the closest to the shape of this season's cars?
