Default Pit Shimizu tires on Tamiya F104v2

So I got a chance to finally try out some Pit Shimizu racing tires on my Tamiya F104v2 F1 car. Wow! Huge difference over my Ride R1 tires that I had on previously. It seems the Shimizu tires are pretty much the go to tire for F1?

for carpet probably..

For hot tarmac R1's all the way with Pit mediums on the front.
For a cooler outdoor track the Pit 571/572 combo works great.

Right, I forgot to mention for carpet surface.

That's a great track in that video!
