Chassis Setup Recommendations
For optimum performance the Federal FZ-201 and FZ-101 race tires require no less than 3 degrees of negative camber to start. There will be a loss of maximum performance and maximum wear if these standards are not met. Less than 3.0 degrees negative camber can result in excessive wear on the outer shoulder junction as well as across the entire tread surface. Higher pressures are needed when the vehicle has limited negative camber. Federal race tires typically offer better performance with spring/shock rates higher than previous brands you may have run and in the full race category. Avoid generating excessive heat into the tire by spinning or sliding during a track session. Over braking along with spinning or sliding of the tire will also cause premature tread wear as well as possible tread splice issues. Federal FZ-201 and FZ-101 are fully designed race tires and have to be treated as such to achieve maximum performance.
- Rotation of FZ-101 for Optimal Wear
Staggered sizes (different size tires front and rear)
Rotate side to side after each session
Square set up (all 4 tires/wheels same size)
Make it a practice to rotate the tires as follows:
Cross Rotate (LF to RR / LR to RF)
Rotate tires RR to LR and LF to LR
Rotate side to side (LF to RF and LR to RR)
Features of the FZ-101
1. New advanced compound provides outstanding dry grip.
2. Kevlar reinforced sidewalls resist deformation ensuring optimal contact patch, resulting in stability at
3. Durable contact patch area maximizes steering and cornering accuracy.
