How should we store the tires between races? Does it matter? I've been putting FX-II on them, and sealing them in a zip lock bag.

I've been running SXT 3.0, but was wondering if there is another low/no odor compound that gives more bite ?

Thanks !!
Gravity LGC is faster by a tenth or so & definitely feels more planted than SXT

Any oil based chemichals (Sweep X1, X2 or X3) will do the job with a plastic bag. a zip lock bag is only needed if more than few month of storage is needed.

Thanks

I ran a set of Sweep QTS 32 on smooth asphalt I like them. I was wondering how long they last, are they only good for 1 race day 2 or what? How do you know or the signs when the good is gone from these tires look wise (not lap times you smart [email protected]@'s)?

Hello QTS32 is made more for the Carpet racing. 1 race day is possible but we recommends you to try our OG_SPEC.

thanks

What is the difference between the QTS-32 and SQT-32 tires?

QTS 32 is the name / compound of the tire. SQT-32N is the part number for the QTS 32 on the newer Natural rims.

So they are the same thing, just the "SQT" is an old number? Same inserts, rims, etc?

I think SQT-32N is actually the latest number.

Hello

QTS32 is name and SQT32 is Part number for the tire, I know its weired but thats how previous distributor named it, either typo or on purpose, not sure. either way. there is only 1, QTS32 set available in the US market. Nylon white dish wheel with EXP-M inserts. we had few variation(different wheels/inserts) about 2 years ago but we no longer doing that.

Thank you.

Hello
you might have a set of Sweep EXP-36. that tire is our premium tire made for open tire competitions. meanwhile QTS32 or Jako32 is SPEC tires for a spec tire competition. naturally premium tires have more grip.

thank you

I am hearing that for ROAR nats, the sweep tire is going to be different then what was used at indoor champs in Cleveland. Is there any truth to this? Because if the compound is changing, how can one be sure to get the latest tire to practice with?
