Who would love to read a 1/12 setup guide written by Alexander Hagberg, Martin Hudy, and the rest of the team drivers?

Who would love to see (video) of Hagberg demonstrating driving technique? practice regiments?

Anybody have any good advice for tire prep and storage in between races? Do you wash your tires after a race? How do you store them?

I wish you all a beautiful day! Rock on guys! and have fun at the track!

Maybe in the future, if time allows, we might present something like that. As you know, XRAY has always been market leaders in this department.

As for tire storage, I store my tires as the came off the track, in a plastic sealed bag. They can be re used many times if you use a foam friendly tire additive such as Spider Grip or SXT. More aggressive oil based additives such as CS High Grip have a tendency to make the foam hard over time and they will be more difficult to re run again.

After using a tyre give them a clean with brake cleaner before storing them. This gets rid of the dirt and 'sticky' feeling on the surface of the tyre.

When you come to re use tyres giving them a very light skim on the truer will also help them perform.

Hi Olly and Alex

Fantastic car you have made this year.

We also deside to use the Hotrace tyres as they are massively the Best tyre on our track. But many drivers has been scared to use them as the rim brake rather easily. Just a lite touch on the track marker and the rim brakes. Yes I know "not hit the marker" but in our club some drivers do hit the markers. With this result you Can see below. Do you do anything to avoid this from happening ?

Thank for your time.

Michael

Pictures Will be uploaded as soon as i Can make them to a smaller size
