From Exotek Racing:
Sold as 1 pair of rubber tire with foam inserts- rear wheels not included and sold separately here.
Exotek is proud to release our first entry into the 1/10 F1 tire segment!
Designed 100% from the ground up, and taking cues from the new full size F1 wheel disk regulations, we 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 we 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.
Our 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- 1. 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. 2. 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.
Our rear tires are designed with a wide profile for maximum contact patch and forward bite while the sidewalls are designed for ‘compliance’ for greatly improved side bite compared to ‘stiff’ sidewalls of other designs- essentially the best of both worlds for greatly improved overall traction on low and medium grip surfaces. You may find the need to change your set up and electronics to maximize steering due to the high traction nature of the rear tires.
The special tire and wheel bead design also aids in side bite and compliance by minimizing the overly stiff sidewalls of other designs, thanks to the low profile glue beads.
To top it off, special heavy duty nylon wheel decals are included for that finishing scale look!
Sold as 1 pair of rubber tire with foam inserts. Front and rear wheels not included and sold separately.
