I'm an offroad guy who's got a standard car to race 1 meeting soon in a demo class, however I still want to be competative without spending too much $$.

Its 21.5 in blinky mode 2 cell lipo open rubber tire.

gear diff will I have a problem with this? the car costs $120 not sure I want to spend $60 on a ball diff (Note if someone wants to sell one cheap PM me)

Battery it takes a rounded edge lipo so mine wont fit, can I modify the chassis or do I need to just buy one? whats most people using?

rubber tires the track is low/med grip at best I can use additive no warmers. Suggestions??

Setup tips - what do I need to know about the rear dampner and T plate? how do I set up to start? Instructions not clear and I've never ran this type of car before.

We have carpet track in CA, you can check out the hpi f10 parts and tires here.

Shimizu soft Front & Rear rubber tire works great on low grip track.

FYI, Thanks.

If you are using the stock chasis the f60 wont fit but, if you have the exotek chasis and shorty packs then the f60 will fit !

Default New Ride R type rubbers

Hy there!

Have anyone tried the new Ride R-1 high grip slicks on the Ride Hpi rims?

I ask because on the Ride site, they say ONLY for the F104 ?????

Cant se anything why they should be different then the previuous Ride F1 Tire line (H1 and so on).

Anyway. I ordered one set of them together with the Ride Hpi rims.

The link below show the tires. Preglued with F104 wheels, and also just theTires.
No. 24022 and 24023.

Hello Rainer,

Ride propose both front and rear Pre-Glued tire pairs for F104 users only.
There are no pre-glued on Ride HPI wheels at this moment.

The tires are the same, no matter they're glued on Ride Tamiya wheel or Ride HPI's. Then yes, the new R1 tires will fit on the Ride HPI wheels.
I tried them without any trouble.

Cheers
Ludo

Thanks for the Info!

Now another question:

Can anyone confirm if shorty lipos fit without an issue in the Exotek conversion kit?

Greetings Rainer
