At our local track we race on a low grip concrete surface. The Ride tires perform very well there, they are also very good in terms of tire wear and you should get a few race meets out of them before you have to replace them.

Also coming pre glued is a bonus, no more getting fingers stuck together or having glue run over the surface of the tire.

Generally speaking, the tires with the blue writing have a open cell light weight foam inner and gives more grip on low grip tracks. With the light weight inner's, don't put to much heat into them with tire warmers otherwise the inner's will shrink onto the rim.

The tires with the red writing have a more denser foam rubber inner, they don't give as much grip on low grip surfaces, but they last longer and are good for med to high grip tracks.

Cheers
Rob.

I thought the Ride combo with blue writing on the wheels were for carpet?

at our local track (indoor asphalt: low - medium traction), most of our club races are with the RED marked Ride Re36 (26006)and it performs well (good grip and lasts long). I mostly run 13.5T boosted.

By mistake, i bought the BLUE marked Re36 and for me, it had more grip compared to the Red Re36.

I have had good experience with the blue ones. I have not tried the red. The blue RE36 lasted much longer than Sorex36. I'm not sure about absolute lap time since I was playing with setups. However the feel was definitely better on Rides as well. Track was outdoor asphalt, medium grip.

I have also tried the Re28 and Re32s. These are awesome as well. I have about 4 runs on the 28s and 7 on the Re32s with a 17.5 blinky and they still are ok.

When I was trying the 32s, I also tried CS27 and RP30s. Again no lap times, but I did like the feel of the 32s the most.

Haven't had the opportunity to test how long it lasts compared to the red ones as it is not a spec tire at our club races.

Was only able to compare it on grip during practice session back to back.

Default Sorex vs ride

Funny, i was never able to get the RIDEs 36 or 32s to work as well as even my almost tearing SOREX 40Rs. I find that with the SOREX i can drive any way i like, but with the RIDEs, i cant slow down too much, then punch throttle from standstill. That would guarentee a spin out. Even with the softest inserts i have, the speedminds purples, the RIDE 32 still does not perform as well as a SOREX 40r. But i am talking about outdoors asphalt.

Part of tires is also setup. However I indeed think its funny too that some people like certain tires while others hate them. I tried the Muchmore 32s that everyone (all the fast guys) in my club was using and was absolutely terrible on them. Car was pushing on entry and lose on exit. Tried multiple runs, and could never get them to work. Bolted a set of Rides under and all issues solved. Go figure.

I think a lot of it depends on the track surface. THis can make a big difference.

I like the Ride 28s in red for asphalt.

I tried RE36 back to back with sorex 36 schu rims medium C inserts on a smooth high grip track.

The ride rim was very hard and I found the side wall to be very stiff, although the center of the tyre was quite soft. RE36 also have a larger diameter than sorex.

Car was almost dialed with sorex just lacking a touch of steering on corner entry but very easy to drive.

With no changes the RE36's were bouncy at low speed and unstable under fast direction changes. At high speed with smooth inputs they felt ok.

(I like a fast reactive car)

After some setup changes the RE36's were very quick in the high speed sections of the track, but hard to drive consistently and slower in tight sections.

Tyre wear was low.

Still working on setup to get the best out of them and I think they would be better with a molded insert due to the stiff side wall.

On low grip asphalt, awesome!
The tire provides an abundant of grip.

The Ride rims are hard and brittle.
Due to the amount of grip, the tire always become unglued from the rim!
And when the traction is up, you need to free up the car to get a fast lap time.

The tires with red letters, it's good when the track is clean and grip is high.
It's responsive and accurate to drive due to the hard and brittle rims.
The area of improvement is, for not having to reglue the tires after each heat.

How do the new RIDE REX tires with the green lettering compare to the RE versions? Anyone tried them yet? The REX34s seem more for carpet, but what about the REX30s?
