Since most people seem to find the rear of the GX too locked in, I think that most will like the ltcr will be very happy with the stc4.
My only complaint about the sweep body is of the quality of polcarbonate. It bends/creases and stays permanently deformed. ...it doesn't flex back like protoform bodies. I hope Sweep will consider changing to a different polycarbonate that doesn't permanently deform so easily.
Thanks for the input, we been updating our production everyday. latest bodies have better, even thickness through out. it should be better.

The jacos are floaty and vague, and the gravity tires are fast, but if you ever get a bit off line, they get covered in a huge amount of junk/fuzz, and are hard to get back. They also seem to have a much narrower temperature band than the sweeps. I think very good/experienced drivers (possibly with tire warmers) could get a lot more out of the gravity tires than me, though.
For now, I'm sticking with the sweep qts32's. I really REALLY like them.
Thank you, we are trying to stay on top with balanced products.

John,
Appreciate the explination of the Sweep Tire construction compounds at the Port Jervis, NY race. It was a huge help in determining what traction addatives to use on specific model Sweep Tires to obtain maximum traction and managing tire wear. The new EVO-R's worked fantastic and look forwad to continuing racing with Sweep Tires!
Thank you,

After using the Tires at RROC
I took them home and used them at Ripon CA for a night race started out on the 1/10 TC EXP36 EVO-R tires and had some bad qualifier's but ended up 4th on the grid for the main at 10:30pm
track temp been in the 110 all day till about 9:30pm then it started to drop and was in-between 85-95 by main so I put a set of 1/10 TC EXP30 EVO-R for main
Video here
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5oZ3X...ature=youtu.be

I'm the Blue/yellow/white car running 2nd as you can see I was there most of the run but could not get a clean pass on leader As 3rd place got behind us I decided to let him got by at the end of the straight in hopes of them getting together. (would of worked but I hit one dot) it almost worked. last lap of the race Orange car taps the white car and body tucks him I go by white car and right on the back of orange car, If orange car would od waited for the white car snice he tucked him the win was mine.

The Tires worked great but next race there I might stay with the 36s all night as the 30s had way to bite at track temp of 90

Thanks Sweep for the tires
working on making it to the
West Coast Sweep Challenge Aug. 30-31 Cal Raceway
where we will be using the 36s as spec tires

Been racing a Losi XXX-S 17.5 for the past month, guess the other racers felt sorry for me, they gave me 4 sets of Hot Race 32 tires. These are working well here (Tampa, FL). Looking towards the day these are wore out, wondering what is the comparable Sweep tire, for (track #1) sealed asphalt and/or (track #2) sugar treated asphalt?

Been treating tires at track #1 with SXT 3.0 and RED DOT at track #2

THANKS for your assist!

I don't think anyone is really very familiar with the hot race tires so it is hard to suggest something similar. If you can chose any tire you want its hard to go wrong with EXP Evo R 36's, good grip with good wear.

The racers I'm around didn't know about Sweep tires. So, I'm stuck in the middle!

Define fall off. Fall off the rim? Fall off the fast pace?
