For my track, dealing with the carbonation made for a big mess (like getting soda sprays on my shoes and clothing) so we stopped using soda after the first try. Instead we buy 1gal pancake syrup from Smart and Final ($6.50 per gal is less than the cost of 6x soda). Mix 1 gal syrup to 4 gal of water and spray. Much cleaner pouring fresh water into a 5 gallon bucket that has the syrup sitting in the bottom. That comes out to 5 gallon of traction sauce for less than $7. Mix it and spray and we have the best traction in all of SoCal. Very very important that you sweep every inch and blow off the asphalt before spraying as well

Default Tamiya roll springs

Does anyone know how the Tamiya side/roll spring rates compares to standard associated 12r5/10r5 springs?

I have a one-off F1 race coming in July on asphalt. What do you guys recommend for tires? I have some new Hudy carpet tires that I got a couple runs on before the track closed. Should I use those or is there something better?

There isnt a one size fits all option for asphalt. The asphalt mix, temp and surface prep play a big role in determining the best option.

In my experience the ideal rear tire tends to be a the std shimuza rears you run on carpet or ride rears( gr & xr both work well). Ride tends to be better in warmer weather while the shimuza tires are usually better in cooler weather. Volante white rears are their only decent outdoor option but I have yet to encounter a sceario where they are not slower than both the previously mentioned options.

Fronts are both weather and car dependant. Older cars tend to favor tamiya kit fronts, the older they are the more aggressive they vwill be. Ride GR fronts work well on more aggressive modern cars. Volante blues & greens can also vialbe options. Shimuza are usually a poor chose but work very in the right condition.

F1 techies - please correct me if the info is wrong....

I believe Hudy only sold 1 compound of F1 tire, and advertised it for both carpet and asphalt. I have also been told that Hudy = Gravity = Ride. For asphalt I have seen no noticeable difference between Hudy and Gravity. Both have been very usable and predictable as the day goes on, unlike some other brands I have tried. If it was me, one off race, I would run the Hudy tires. I clean between runs with Trinity Buggy Grip, and sauce with Mighty Gripper Yellow or Black about 20 minutes before the run. I would start with sauce on about 1/2 of the front tire, but you probably will end up doing the entire front tire - depending on setup.

Great Thanks!. Hudy it is, and I have a new can of Mighty Gripper Black to try.

To answer the other questions its a asphalt parking lot that we sweep/blow before each race day and then laydown a canister of Coke syrup to bring up the grip. Track temps for that time of year hover around 90-115F (32-45C). I'm running a '21 Xray X1 so if anyone has a go-to set-up sheet I'd love to see it.

Thanks again.

The Gravity-Hudy-Ride tires are the same and no longer being made. We are testing now just three brands of tires for the ROAR Nationals. The Gravitys were the tire of choice for outdoors. They lasted a long time and were the fastest tire we used. We have the three best tires we will be testing next weekend. You can see our test reports on our face book page.As for carpet it is easy- CRC! But we race outdoors 95% of the time here in Florida and have one carpet track at we might race on once a month. Anyone can come race with us and get some practice for the nationals!
