I run 4-5k on Asphalt, we usually run 7k ish on grey carpet, with xray gear diff

a shoty LiPo is probably not the best idea. (Sorry could not resist)😊

a shorty LiPo is the best for F1, just not a shoty one (was playing with the typo in your original post)

Default Hudy F1 tires?

Anyone try these Hudy premounts for black carpet? I have been a religious Shimizu 571/572 but wondering if these Hudy F1 tires are any good? Hate to waste $ on a tire that I can't find reviews on. I did hear they are volante tires repackaged? That true?

Ive used Team Orion and GenAces so far. No noticeable difference. Id like to try a few other once F1 starts back up in spring.

I'm having great luck with the Fantom low profile shorty packs! I don't sacrifice ANY top speed with 25.5 and I'll run two races easy with one charge.

As others have pointed out the Hudy premounts are just Ride GR premounts, I tried the Ride GR on Black ETS carpet and but didnt get as much grip as I hoped. I tried only saucing half of the front tire just to see how it holds up and clearly that wasnt enough, there wasnt enough front grip. I switched to the Pit 571/572 combo and it was night and day difference. The car handled like it was on rails.

Ok, I will stick with my tried and true 571/572. Thanks for identifying the Hudy tires as Ride GR's.

74/75 is the combo to beat on TQ's black carpet.
Rumor has it that Pit Shimizu is done and gone.

While they may no longer be making the tires. You can still purchase the tires from hobby shops that have them. However, there will inevitably be a point where they run out for sale and should be phased out in a mass extintion...probably by mid 2019
