Then I switched to the 36s with great success. I had a little trouble in the main because of a mistake I made though. The track cooled significantly and I didn't think to change back to EXP30s. Car was still very fast in the later half in the run though.

Another hit was the Sweep X3 traction compound. Compared to tweak, it is exactly the same from the beginning of the race to the end. Tweak tends to be really aggressive up front, then fade away later in the run. Many people loved the sweep traction compound as it worked on just about any tire you put it on as well.

I think we'll be seeing a lot of people ordering up sweep tires from now on

what makes our products so optimistic is just like an old phrase, what wins Sunday sell Monday,

since we start racing last winter, we been swamped with order on every Monday and Tuesday. just like yesterday and today we had to do double OT to keep up with orders and mails. thanks guys keep up the good work.

The grip never faded on exp 30 the sjr 28 started to fade after 2nd run, these are by far the best rubber tires I have tried the best part was the exp 30 I have are for asphalt not carpet so can't wait to get outside and get them on some asphalt and really watch them tear it up.
yes that s how exactly what every one felt about our tires. thanks

Hey guys,

What a weekend of racing! Everyone running Sweep tires had excellent results.

Last weekend was our first outing with the Sweep EXP line of tires on asphalt. As Korey mentioned, there has been some buzz floating around the NW about the new tire on the block. Four drivers other then Korey and myself showed up sporting yellow rim's. The track temp were cool so we started off running EXP30's. Round 3 track temps were up so we switched to EXP36's. By the time the mains were announced I made the move to go back to EXP30's as the track temps cooled back down. Performance was killer. What I felt with the Sweep tires coupled with Sweep X3 traction compound was a very consistent start to end run. I was able to set the TQ every round and have the fastest run of the day by over 7 seconds on the field. By mid day the buzz was strong and we had people consistently asking where they could pick up a set.

Here are a few other highlight from others,

My buddy Mike P. also had a great Sweep experience. Mike started out running EXP30's for practice and the first two quals in open Mod. He switched to a fresh set of Sorex 32's for qual 3 and felt he had better grip on his third run of the EXP30's then a fresh set of 32's. In fact... he was .3 tenths a lap faster on his third run on EXP's then a fresh set of Sorex. Mike took my suggestion for the main to try the X1 cleaner and X3 traction compound. He felt it gave him overall better grip and the steering he was looking for.

Another racer in open Mod, Marc C. put on a used set of EXP30's for the Mod A main and walked off the bus with a large smile. He liked the grip better and was asking were to order them.

It appearers the yellow rim invasion is coming on strong so look for it to be a bigger and brighter week!

Report from Time Zone Raceway Park.

Last night was the first session out doors. The track looked spectacular after the Saturday work crew power washed the asphalt, painted the berms and generally toshed the place up.

So, first run was on Sweep 32s from last w/end. Hooked. Second run, hooked. Third run, hooked. Clean with X1 then coat with X3, wipe off and run !! TZ got delivery of the Sweep package and several drivers bought and installed a set. ALL were AMAZED.............

I just wanted to add my story, I had a fairly well handling car with a fresh set of RP30s, the rear end of the car was a little slippery when pulling hard out of tight corners and once i put these on the car felt like an entire different vehicle! it was a great experience and i plan on purchasing more hoping for great results.

now for the bad...this wasnt on my car but two other cars that had ran those tires that day had torn a tire. the rubber ripped right off causing a DNF.

That made me a little weary going into the A main being the only one left using them of the 3 that started using them that day!

My first batch of tires became unglued, so I hope these next ones won't.
The way these tire wear are different from my other tires. They leave this fine dust almost like a foam tire. Is this normal?
