Same thing as Pit Shimizu 571 and 572 or the Tamiya "TCS" logo rebranded tires. Good tire for tracks that have good traction. For lower traction, the rear works well with the Tamiya F104 kit front tire, or another harder front, like the Gravity tire.

If someone at your track uses something that works, just get the same thing and save some testing time.

Thank you for the reply.


Local fast guys use Ride R1 rear tires and I use them too. What annoys me is the grey/silver wheels that doesn't match the front wheels I use (Ride GR or GRX).

Any idea for alternatives to shimizu tyres for super low traction? The track is cold and dusty concrete. Ride GRs were like driving on ice. GR front with Super Soft Volante rears were faster but I still didnt feel like I could push the car. When I tried another club members's worn shimizus on the rear, I was 0.2s faster and could easily push the car without fear of spinning out. Driving with those shimizus feel like cheating.

I use a black paint pen on the R1 rims

Yes Shimizus are awesome in cooler weather. Schumacher hopes these are ready and in stock again by late October.
Try the new Volante hyper soft and revolution soft (the softest yet). These offer way may grip than the super softs.

Some time ago, there was a post about "scale" of the actual F1 car.

So, with a bit of mix'n'match and some custom parts, we make a "real" 1/10 F1. With a 370mm wheelbase... which is a "just a bit" longer than the actual standard.

.

For a fast comparison
Mistral 2-0 is 280mm
Classique is 250mm




Side by side, the result is astonishing. As the real ones, the car look loooonger.

Track handing is not that bad. I'll have a video on Fenix FB page and Youtube channel

Is the track width also correct 1/10 of a real f1 car?

I was thinking the same thing. I watch a ton of full scale F1 and the cars don't look like that.

I am pretty sure that 200cm is the current 1:1 max width for F1.
