Ride DF 190mm touring car wing set

Coming from Ride is their new DF wing set for 190mm touring car body shells. Inspired by nature design the wings sport specially-shaped wave sections – as seen on dragonfly wings – to create downforce even at low air speeds. The set includes a type A wing for medium to high speed tracks and Modified classes, sporting a full-face wave section, while the type B wing was designed for low to medium speeds and Stock racing classes – the latter wing only utilises wave sections on the outer portions. Included in the set are four printed carbon fibre side plates and the wings are usable for most 190mm touring car body shells.

Ride XR 1/10th formula tyres

Ride XR 1/10th formula tyres

Ride have introduced the all-new XR 1/10th formula front and rear tyres. In development for almost two years the runner-up version of the highly popular R1 will retain positive features such as multi-surface ability and low wear while sporting new rim with larger inner diameter and a reinforced outer edge to make for a more durable and better performing wheel. An updated injection process of the rims raises quality and trueness. The updated tyres feature re-designed profiles for increased steering response, better side bite and forward traction while the rubber compound used offers the same easy driving feeling as the R1 but with extra steering response everyone was waiting for. The pre-glued tyres, that will be the new controlled ETS Formula class hand-out wheels, are rounded out by all-new inserts which are of a more stable material for consistent performance over time.
