On-road Tires Exotek Racing F1 front rubber tires & tire sidewall stickers septembre 14, 2023 by Chris Laisser un commentaire Exotek Racing have introduced their new front rubber tires and tire sidewall stickers intended for the use with formula 1/10th cars. The new V2 Soft double red 36X (36 celsius), V2 Medium red 38X (38 celsius), and V2 Firm yellow 40X (40 celsius) compounds are manufactured using a newly tooled mold that produces a more rounded tread for improved durability versus the V1 front tire. New foam inserts have been redesigned for improved fit and performance. Shopping! RC Team The double red sets are suited for carpet racing and creates more aggressive steering compared to the 38X red fronts. The red sets are suited for carpet racing and high grip asphalt racing and creates more aggressive steering compared to the 40X yellow fronts. The yellow sets are best suited for hot asphalt racing weather or low grip tracks and creates less aggressive steering compared to the 38X red fronts. Designed 100% from the ground up, and taking cues from the new full size F1 wheel disk regulations, Exotek Racing have taken all of the best elements of RC F1 tires from the past and engineered them into the ultimate F1 rubber tire and wheel set up. On top of that Exotek Racing have contracted to have these produced by the premier RC rubber touring car tire factory in Japan, using premium touring car rubber compounds and nylon for wheels. These front tires are designed with a wide profile for maximum contact patch while the sidewalls are designed with 2 different sidewall diameters. The larger inner diameter serves two purposes: Larger diameter inner wheel gives more suspension pin clearance and would allow for longer front springs and pins designs in the future for increased front end dampening. The inner sidewall becomes slightly stiffer than the outer sidewall. The effect generates less ‘twitchiness’ at low speeds while increasing front bite at higher corner speeds as the tire load spreads to the outer ‘softer’ tire sidewall. To top it off, special heavy duty nylon wheel decals are included for that finishing scale look! F1 rubber tires are available in pairs and come with foam inserts. Also new are the replacement vinyl sidewall stickers for Exotek F1 tires or similar sizes. Measuring 40mm ID x 50.5mm OD, the set includes 4 stickers made of heavy duty vinyl with vibrant colors for easier car visibility.
