Still struggling with this setup - only ever experienced the foams before, would be grateful if anyone could point me in the right direction with regards to a basic setup for carpet using the above tyres please? Currently the car understeers very wide on corner entry and spins on-power out of the corner. The exception being really fast long corners where it just seems to spin out on corner entry.

Any general setup tips appreciated - cheers.

The Ride R1/R1 combo just has not come in for me. I put about 3 runs on them and they are still not completely scuffed in. Fronts are still super shiny and that is after full cleaning, compound and run as hard as possible.

Can anyone tell me the difference between Pit tires? I can figure out the soft, medium, hard as thats pretty self explanatory. What do the numbers represent? Are they a reference to the firmness of the side wall, and how much difference does the number make. We use the 573/572 combo at our carpet track, but would like to try different combos.

They will never steer as hard as a set of Pits, but by going softer on the front, adding more toe-out, and (i find) running less camber really helps to gain more steering. Also bare in mind all my running is outdoor asphalt

The same problem was driving me nuts yesterday, turns out the foams in the rear are thicker than say.. 0574. so the contact of the tire is only on the very center of the tire. upon swiching to the tire with thiner incert the car was perfect.

Makes sense on decreasing negative camber, I'll give it a try. I'm running 1* toe out on each side and like the initial turn in. I'll set camber at 1* instead of 1.5*. It should in theory increase the contact patch mid corner. Right now I think even the little bit of camber gain due to caster is putting me on the inside edge (1/4 or less) of the tire. And it is hell getting any tire scuffed in on carpet!

That's what I found in my testing, is that less camber actually helped to keep the tyre more in contact during cornering. Didn't really help the initial, but middle was much better, and could get on the gas earlier/hold tighter line One time I tried going to 2.5, and it was horrible, completely washing away in the centre of the turn..

This page from the UF1 wesite may help some, but it needs to be updated.

Last night was the first time I had the V2 out on the track. We are indoors on carpet.
I used the the tamiya option tires, hard front soft rear. Car was easy to drive even with the kit setup. Had tons of steering but what I noticed was you really had to baby the throttle coming out of the corner apex. With foams you could mash the throttle and be okay but rubber is a whole different ball game!!!!

Has anyone had issues with the Ride R1's being out of balance and causing vibrations?

the ride premounted tyres do cause some vibration. I have found that the ones you mount yourself have nearly no vibrations at all.

Thats interesting. I mounted them myself, each corner needed some weight added. Was bad enough for the wing to vibrate up to 5mm on throttle.

Other thanks that, fantastic tyre! So much grip
