This is Volante V8T Revolution Pre-Glued 36R Rubber Tire 4 pcs w/ Seven Spoke White Rim For 1/10 RC Touring Car. The new Volante V8 36R Tire finally made its way to the Arena33 Racetrack in Andernach/Germany and was tested by some really fast drivers including ETS race winners like Ronald Völker, Marc Rheinard and Yannic Prümper! Today we want to bring you closer to some facts and tips all around the new V8 asphalt tires.
First of all it is important to know the reason which made it necessary to develop a new tire for asphalt racing. The Volante V5 was a very reliable asphalt tire over the last years and allowed us to see some great racing all around the world. Due to a big raw material shortage on the market in 2020, which affected all major tire manufacturers, Volante accepted the challenge and created something new with the goal to make it even better. The result is the Volante V8 tire series!
During the first days of testing the V8 tire quickly showed a ballistic performance as the lap times were a lot faster compared to the V5 tires. All drivers reported that their cars felt great with the new tires and they all confirmed that the V8 tires have almost no “drop-off” in the first few runs - something which was always very dramatic with the V5 tires wear the first run was a lot faster than the second or third one. The new V8 tire now gives racers the opportunity to do more equal fast runs with the same set of tires!
Another benefit of the V8 tire is the fact that it has no more air gap between the rubber and the insert. This prevents the new ultra-thin mega fix belt from vibrating and stressing the rubber which sometimes resulted in an exploded V5 tire.
