R32 will be fine, R40 just have little bit more temperature coverage window.

Thanks for all your help! =)
Sorry all our inserts are made for 24mm. EXP inserts are just thicker not wider.

have fun at the TCS!

Sweep Racing - do you, or can you make a wheel for a 1/10th scale pan car that a rubber touring tire would mount on?

Things are headed towards a return of the SWT Series, but for
2017 the focus will be on the Encino Velodrome (and dirt oval racing)

Tried the 36r here on our track in Florida they don't seem to work every well they are a nice tire but don't hold the the grip on a treated or untreated asphalt outdoor track i don't like using sauce. .they do ok for about 10 to 15 laps after thatit's like being on ice i run 21.5 tc. And how can tell when the tire is done and not any good or use up ready for trash can? Thanks

Using the "right" sauce is a big difference , but not using any sauce makes it tough. I would go with the sweep R series tires that are meant for parking lots or in prepped surfaces. The r series are slightly taller and have more air gap. Try an r32

Also. At least wash the tires with motor spray before each run
