Exotek Racing F1 Tires

Exotek Racing has released its 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, they 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. Exotek 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.

The 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. The special tire, offered in 36 or 40 compound, and wheel bead design also aids in side bite and compliance by minimising 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!

Exotek Racing have also designed 100% from the ground up a nylon wheel exclusively for use with its new tire. Also taking cues from the new full size F1 wheel disk regulations, the wheel is produced in Japan too using premium touring car nylon.
