Traction is king in racing. Being able to effectively put the power to the ground could mean the difference between first place, and also-ran. In on-road cars, tyre temperature is very important.
The TrackStar 1/10th Scale Tyre Warmer is designed to bring rubber tyres for 1/10th scale touring cars up to the optimal temperature to provide best traction possible. Starting a race on cold tyres will require several laps before your car reaches optimal traction. By then, the race may be lost.
Our Tyre Warmer is a highly advanced system that allows you to control the temperature of the front and rear tyres independently depending on car setup, personal preference, or tyre compound. The electronic MCU box gives you a easy interface, with a built in track stand for your car. Two different warming options with fully programmable parameters of each, from a quick warming option to a step warming option, good for when you are running different tyre compounds or additives. Designed to run off an AC/DC power supply or 3S 11.1V Lipoly battery for those times when a power supply is not available.
• Front and rear temperature can be set independently
• Celsius/Fahrenheit selectable display
• Two different warming modes with fully programmable parameters
• Electronic MCU box with easy programming interface, doubles as a track stand
• Operates on AC/DC power supply or 3S 11.1V Lipoly battery
Input Voltage: 11~15V DC - Must be capable of up to 8 amps at 12V
Temperature Range: 20°C~80°C (68°F~176°F)
*Note* This item is designed for 1/10th scale on-road touring cars, not off-road vehicles
I used it only twice and the LCD display is partially faulty. I am not too sure (because I can't see the display properly) but I think some of the functions are not working properly as well. Better off buying some reputable brand even though it may be more expensive.Excellent quality tyre warmers. These match the muchmore expensive version in every area except for the fact that you cannot install a 2s lipo inside like you can on the muchmore. But this is not an issue for most of the time as you would normally plug it into a 12v power supply anyway. Great all roundReally nice product. As good as other warmers on the market at double or triple the price.
Power cord should be longerUsed my new Turnigy tire warmers for the first time last race meeting and they work so well, I race 5 classes, Johnsons/open stock, F1, FF, 17.5 Blinky and 13.5 boosted so these warmers were pretty much on all day between 15 races and it worked well!!! the closest competitor is $99 ad they work and function exactly the same! Good Job HK!!!!Hi all,
I got my tire warmer today! Realy pleased with it. Looks great, good firm package and exactly the right size for 1/10th scale tires.
The only thing that was bothering me is that the way to calibrate the temperature of each tire is not documented correctly. The manual says to start with the front left tire, but actualy it is the front right tire. Also, to store the calibrated data, you have to pres and hold the right arrow-button. Not the left one as the manual suggests.
