Another good outing for Sweep racing products @ the 3rd Round of the RROL " Home Depot " onroad points series...In 17.5 Touring Car I ran the QTS 32 "BLUES" all day, and managed to qualify 3rd overall... In the main a coulpe of changes to the car I managed finishing 2nd overall, and still trying to figure out the new Hobbywing turbo setup.. Off the pace a bit with the leader but managed to gain one position and hold off the rest of the field for a close 2nd place finish.. In Vta I TQ'd using the Sweep racing X3 asphalt compound, and pulled off a win...Race Results under Series info on home page June 27th

Thnaks Sweep racing for great products... 3rd RD of the RCPRO offroad SERIES July 16-18, report to follow shortly after..

Thanks for helping out with the race this weekend at OVRCCC in Belpre, OH everyone was happy with there prizes. I was chasing esc settings both days to get some speed out of my tekin with a dou2 17.5 on the 120ft back stretch finally got it pretty good for the main was qualified 3rd and ended up getting 2nd in the main and was 0.2 off from leaders fastest lap. I was using the exp 36 wow these tires are great even with track temps up around 145* they still have plenty of life left in them. Thank you for all your help.

what does the track look like is the asphalt rough or smooth? what traction compound are you using on tires?

Great weekend in Washington!
Weather is getting nicer and nicer around here and we had two solid days of racing this past weekend. The numbers are still growing with more and more guys running Sweep every weekend.

Have attached a few pictures for you to enjoy. One is a group shot of every one running Sweep tires at Fasttrax NW on a Saturday club race. The rest were shot on Sundays club race at Fantasy World Hobbies.

The plan was to get a group shot of every one at Fantasy World as well but it was like pulling teeth to get every one together. As you already know the tires performed awesome.

Was able to set TQ and take first both days in open Mod.

After going through several packs on the EXP 36, the rubber on the wall where it meets the wheel will exhibit some tearing. This has happened consistently on several sets already.

Anyone noticed this problem? Or am I doing something wrong?

How many runs are you getting out of them and what kind of surface are you on? I have never had a problem yet with any of mine.

I run them on med-bite asphalt track. Usually this issue shows up in 3-4 runs. i has happened on my touring car and as well as FF03.

Great weekend in Washington!
I want to give a shout out to Kody Knutson for all the help at the track this last weekend. Had an issue with a sweep 36 tire and Kody took time out to help me, and got me back on the track with my sweeps.

Hi, I want to order some EXP premount 30 and 36 deg tire sets for my touring car, but wanted to know which type of 36 and 30 deg are these?

SWP-EXP-36P http://www.rc-mushroom.com/product_i...ducts_id=19631
SWE-EXP-36P http://shopping.rcmodel.hk/product_i...ducts_id=16758
SWE-EXP-30P http://shopping.rcmodel.hk/product_i...ducts_id=16759

In Sweep USA shop there are many kinds of same deg. tire.

I will be using them in 30C air, 60C track temp, very very big asphalt nitro track.

Thanks
