Hello

That is true.
natuarally rubber tires are slightly diffrents between batch to batch. we found out our latest batch we made for the 2014 ROAR nats are little bit harder than the one that we made for 2013 USIC. but we making one thing for sure. each single event is runs on a single batch tires.

Thank you.

Further to what John said,

Our WCICS series uses Sweep as our spec tire. John sent out the 1st batch of 2014 tires to us for the Victoria race in Jan. The compound is slightly harder then the last batch of 2013 ( last quarter I believe) but they are very consistent. I think by now the new tires are in circulation, But to be sure I know a few guys ordered direct from Sweeps Racing to make sure they got the latest batch to test and practice on for our series up here in Canada.

We will be running them again this weekend @ round #6 of the WCICS series.

Hope this helps.

Please help me with this. I was told that the Sweep 30 tire has been discontinued. Is there any truth to that and if so, what do you make in place of the 30 tire?

SweepracingUSA,

Do you have any 26mm 30mm and 35mm wide 1/10 onroad rubber tires? IF so, whats the part #. I'd like to purchase the tires separate from the wheels if you have. Thanks in advance.

The new body looks great! I like the rounded edges..... should make for less drag.

I have a question about tires. I've been running the exp-qts "rug racer" tires, but will be switching to the qts32 WCICS spec tires soon. We are running on what I believe to be medium grip carpet. How much can I expect my lap times to be affected? Might I require any setup changes with the new tires?

The body has a lot of steering. Initiates better than the LTCR. Just be sure not to cut the rear wing too short. The first set of cut lines should fit the ROAR/IFMAR template

Thanks for the info. Looking at the pics again, the splitter looks very long. That must be the reason for the high amount of front grip. I'm not big on its looks, but function before fashion, right? Something else I like about it is that the light weight body comes with a thick 1mm wing. The PF lightweight bodies come with the thin flimsy wing.

Default Tire recommendation

Hi Sweep guys I would like to know what do you recommed for the following conditions:
Car: serpent s411 TE
Track: concrete very low grip.
Details: night racing indoor. Temperature around 60-70 F.

We are using sorex 36R with schumacher yellow foam inserts and works well, I know we can have a better tire grip but don't know what else to try.

If you can give me a sugestion with sweep option (tyre, insert and wheel) I will apreciate.

Regards.

Alex

Sweep released so many series of tyre that made me a bit of confused.

SWP-EXP-36P = EXP-36EVO?
What is EVO-R?
