Hey guys, looking to set up my X1 with shimizu tires and was hoping someone could suggest a good starting point. Our track is tennis grade asphalt, indoor. Track is 100 x 48, traction is generally pretty high and sometimes toward the end of race day its to high, with that said I run a 109 now and have good success with ride soft front and rear. Any help would be great!

Try Shimizu PS-0571 & PS-0572, it's very popular combination nowadays.

I've just started running the 571 572 combo and it's very stable and predictable!
It's understeering a touch but it's easier to drive than the tamiya rubber for sure!

Yes, it's very good combo.

Thanks.

HPI F1 tires, Ride F104 tires and Shimizu tires (PS-0561, 0563,0565) fit on FGX kit rubber wheels.

PS-0565 (soft) and 0561(soft) will be the good combo.

Ride Rear Medium(24007) and Ride front Soft(24009) also works good.

Thanks.

It depends on your car setup, mostly F1 rubber needs more steering.

F201 wheel will work, but I'm not sure about the offset.

HPI, Ride FGX wheels have more offset than stock FGX rubber wheels.

Thanks.

Thanks.

Hello guys, I'm new to all of this tire stuff and got a better idea of it after reading this this tire thread but still have a question. Right not I'm have the pit ps-0575 rear and I'm looking to get some front tires and was looking at the ps-0573 but they are out of stock and was wondering if i could get by with using the ps-0577? The track is indoor high bite. Every one at the track tells me the stock tamiya tires pretty much suck at this track and told me i need to go with pit medium in the front but i see there are two kinds of them. Any help would be greatly appreciated

It depends on our car setup, but PS-0575 & PS-0577 (or PS-0573) is good for stable setup, and PS-0572 & PS-0571 is good for more steering.

All items will be in stock by this week, and we will post here.

Thanks.
