Wich tires do you use? because with the rubber tires (Bridgestone S+M) the car is very very easy to drive with a tenedncy to understeer.

You have to use both! Front and rear tuning Tires. The kit front and the S-rears will not work.
Always use the same front and rear !
S+S or M+M. The Kittires are crap!

In my experience the Soft compound is the faster tire. Maybe on hot summerdays after a couple of laps the M compund tire is getting better then the S, but if only want to purchase one et of them then go for the S Type!

If you want high perfomance tires, for a cheap price, and you dont care that the car looks 100% scale anymore, than try a set of nitro foam tires.

I posted pics of my car with tires mounted a few pages previously!

They are a direct fit! Now additional tuningparts are necesarry!

Front 26mm 40 shore and rear 30mm 37 shore for example.

if you buy the HPI Alushock, the spring and a bottle of oil is included.
I dont know wich hardness it has. The oil looks like a 40 shock oil.
Never tried another spring/oil combo

I have a set of foams I used on my F103GT. They are not as wide as the current F10 tires. Will these work O.K.

Yut been back from my little test session with the F10 today, and have to say that the nitro foams didnt work on this track!

It is a med/thight high grip permanent carpet track, and there is sooo much grip that the car rolls over with the foams on it.

I tested it only one battery, and switched back to the Bridgestone S Compound Tires.

With those it was very forgiving and easy to drive...

Looks like the Nitro Foams are only on low/med grip Tracks useable.

I put 0.5mm shim in between the t-bar and o-ring so the t-bar is angled as you can see in the picture and it has more down travel. This will give you more on-power traction. I recommend to try it if your car is a little loose on-power.

I hope it helps.


Hy!

Any news for the release date? When will the parts be available ?

It's probably cheaper because it's not threaded.

Finally ran my car with the S compound Bridgestones.....it's a completely different car on these tires, very driveable on our carpet. I am going to do the shim mod to the t-bar I saw a few pages back...it still wants to step out on hard acceleration, but all in all, 1000 times better. It'll now handle the power from a low MAH 6 cell pack and still be able to get around the track.

hi everyone i am new to the RWD world!!
gotta say it's fun to drive my f10!

i have just ordered the shimizu soft tires set and f201 wheels and ball diff, but dunno if the shimizu tires any good or not??!!

anyone heart of them before??!!

and i would like to know what sort of setup people used for asphalt track, so far i keep it standard height and using trf shocks with soft spring and 30 oil !!

also i am currently using 3000kv brushless, i found it quite powerful, so i was thinking to get something like 1900kv motor for my f10, so i can have some better throttle control? do you guys think 1900kv will be good for beginner??

thanks for help
