It comes with thin rubber insert, same as 0572 and 0575

Hi folks.

Not related to tires and wheels but someone could help me choose a battery for my F113?! I'm new to this class and have no idea about a good relationship between power/weight.

My Motor/Esc setup is Speed Passion Reventon + 17.5T sensored motor

I was thinking about use 2200mAh 2S nanotechs (~120 grams) for heats of 6-7 min.

Is 2200mAh enough?

You should probably ask this in the F1 thread: http://www.rctech.net/forum/electric...-whatever.html

Personally, I'd get a shorty in the 4000 - 5000 mAh range, the weight is fine. Then again we run 21.5 over here.

Thanks metalnut! I've just placed my question in the correct thread

What's the reasoning behind the huge air gap you get with that thin insert?

TC tires have an air gap too but it's nothing compared to these.

Gives the tires more traction as the rubber is allowed to move around more and conform to the surface. At least that's how it was explained to me.

Works for me, that's kind of what I was thinking, but you never know. Thanks

Default do you know how to balance ride tires?

My formula mounted ride hard at front and ride r1 soft at rear. I buy the tires preglued with the tire. I noticed that rears make vibration at high rpms. How can I balance my wheels?

in the search for the perfect F1 tire, I gave up on Ride since their tires are NEVER in stock at my LHS or online shops local to me (Im in Hong Kong, rcmart is local). I decided to give Shimizu tires a shot since everyone and their mom raves about them here.

Everyone is recommending the 571/572 combo whether its carpet or asphalt, but I want to know which one I should use for 34+ outdoor temps and track temps at around 50+. Ive used Ride premounted soft rear and hard fronts and they hook up really well. The 571/572 combo is completely opposite with hard rears, soft fronts.

Right now Im thinking of buying:

571 soft front
572 hard rear
573 medium front
575 soft rear

And test out all combos for my track.

Several companies make tire balancers, I got the Trackstar model off ebay, it will definitely reduce vibration...hence improve traction and make for a smoother running car.

Use hobby grade lead tape on the inner part of the tire as close to the center of the tire as possible.

A secondary benefit is you can match tires that are more perfectly round when you see them spinning on a balancer, it really helps if you buy multiple sets at once.

Ever see a race car that didn't have a perfectly balanced set of tires?...me neither.

I run 573/575 combo for most of the time, 571/572 combo is not so different. When it is hot here (30C+) i switch for F3/R3 combo - dont know the numbers.

Thanks for the reply. I also was wondering what the 3 series mean compared to the 1 series. The 1 series cost more so I automatically thought they are better.

They are better, but when it is hot, they start to sqeeek at every turn and suffer from tearing side walls. F3/R3 (577/578) are a bit more pushy and you need to change tire prep, but the heat doesnt damage them so much.
