Acetone. Put the wheels in an airtight container with a small amount of acetone, I put it in a small bottle cap, and leave for a day or two. The tyre will then just peel off.

Stupid question, but what do you guys use to glue the two ends together of the rubberish insert that comes with the rear 572 tires?

Is there a tire that's "one step harder" than the 0572. We are running high grip carpet...and my rear is too locked in.

I asked this in the F1 thread, but didn't get any replies, so maybe this is more appropriate. Sorry about the copy/paste:

I have an SP-1 with Pit tires that I run on a CRC carpet track. I'm having some issues with front/overall traction that I'm hoping you all can help me figure out.

So, the front Pit tire is a bit tapered/coned on the outside half, which seems like a bit of built in camber. What I'm trying to figure out is the tire sauce strategy vs. camber settings vs. caster settings.

First, I fully sauce the back, no matter what.

Second, I was running a 10 degree caster plate, 1 degree camber, and then saucing the front tires 1/2 - 3/4, depending on the track grip throughout the night. I was still understeering so I flipped the caster plate to the 5 degree side, keeping camber at 1 degree and saucing similar. I suddenly had a lot of oversteer.

It seems to me that, with the outside coning/taper, saucing the front Pit tires is tricky. The window of proper grip is very narrow. I wanted to ask how you guys handle this? What's the typical camber settings for these tires, and how do you sauce the fronts throughout the night?

And should I stick with the 5 degree caster plate, or go back to 10 degrees?

One thing I learned in the past two weekends of running the 072 front is...You got to be on your sauce game. Be prepared to switch it up with grip...and most importantly take notes of where grip was...amount/time and results.
I have never had a tire that was so sensitive to sauce application. When I get it right my 104 v2 is money. When I don't it's traction rolling the 1st half or I loose all steering around the 3 min mark.
My standard procedure has been 1/4 front at 5 min ( no longer) or half with a wipe on wipe off right before the heat. I have actually sat in line to race my heat with a bottle of Sxt sitting next to me.
I can't help much with setup advice as I am still learning myself.

For my use , high grip carpet with 0572 too , i dont use the 10 caster plate , it understeer the car way too much. i keep the 5 setting
i sauce the rear full for 20 min and the front interior 1/3 for 20min too with CS speed grip or corally jack the gripper.

Interesting... hrm. So, on our track we can only use SXT 3.0 or Jack, but I think both are more than up to the task. I feel like saucing the inner 1/2 (up to where the "taper" starts) doesn't give me much grip, but as soon as I go past that (so onto the "taper") things get very sensitive very quickly.

Ok, so, I'll keep my 5* caster plate and my 1* camber, unless someone suggests otherwise, and I'll try just playing with the sauce application.

I admit, I have been letting the front soak as long as the rear, so, 30+ minutes if not more. My VTA car can take full sauce front and for hours and loves it, so this is a totally different ball game.

For the front PS0571 or Ps0574 if you want more grip
PS0572 rear or PS0575 for more grip too , but if you are on a high grip carpet you can go for the 571-572 combo , 574-575 might be a little bit more "touchy"

Run the 572s with the optional insert. It will stiffen the tire up a bit.
