Matching K-3 red response to K-5 - possible?

Does anyone know how to go about that in ACR?

I know the red response is questionable in most Pentax DSLRs, but the K-3 (to me) is even a bit more of a problem.

The best I've come up with so far is by reducing the luminance and increasing the saturation, but I'm not sure if this is counter-productive.

I'd like to have it as a default, or Preset.

I also do a colour match within PS, using a K-5 shot as reference, and that actually gets me closer towards the perceived hue. Shot during the same gig, btw.

Recently I've shot a couple of motorbikes of similar hue, but cannot get it right, let alone consistent, with the K-3 shots.

Shooting Raw, with Adobe gamma - both cameras.

Very frustrating.
