April 2nd, 2010: Through R&D and racer testimonials on our current batch of EXP touring car tires, we have discovered an intermittent glue issue occurring on tracks with abnormally high levels of traction. To remedy this, we simply recommend applying Sweep thin set CA glue to the bead prior to first use and would like to take this opportunity to assure our loyal customers that a revision to the EXP line of touring car tires has already been made. Since we manufacture all of our tires in-house, Sweep has the ability to respond quickly and continue development of superior racing tires for all surfaces.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this issue has caused, and offer our continued dedication to developing superior tire products in return for your brand loyalty.

Team Sweep Racing USA.

Hello Everyone,

I'm happy to say I'll be working with Sweep Racing USA, and using their products for the 2010 season. I just got my first order of tires, and I'm really looking forward to running them. So far I've only heard good things about them, and I'm confident Sweep USA will do their best to put out an awesome product. If you have any questions, I'd be happy to answer them. Just bare with me for a bit because the weather hasn't been "cooperative" here in the Pacific Northwest for outdoor racing. I'll be sure to post here after my first experience with the tires!

-Korey

You will be happy with the performance of the Sweep EXP at 301 Raceway. You will not be lost for traction. Just work on your setup.

Oh yeah...congratulations on your 3rd place finish at the ROAR Carpet Nats.

I've got a question for Sweep users---and probably other tires. I'm racing on Carpet this weekend--and I did some extensive testing last night--the tires get a "buildup" of rubber over time running on the carpet. What's the best chemical to take this off with?? I used lighter fluid at home--the tire sauce doesn't do it well--it's best used once they've been cleaned. So---what have you found?? Simple Green? Alcohol?? Thinner?? Kerosene?? I'm trying to find something that will work quick---and not damage the tires.
FYI
Tim
BTW--WHILE the tires are clean and with tire sauce---they work GREAT!!! I've been using EXP36s--I'm going to try EXP32's Sat morning.
FWIW

hello

I was using just a regular motor spray at the RCmadness this winter, works great. some one told me I should try a Simple green next time which I have a gallon bottle somewhre (we all do) as long as you dont spray directly on them I dont think you can harm the rubber in any way, only thng we re wrorrying is spray a chemicahl direcly and harm the glueing seam.

regards

John Lee

Your best bet to clean tires will be motor spray, simple green will soften the rubber slightly as would any other traction compound. Rubbing alcohol wont soften the rubber either, but it tends to dry the rubber out.

hello,

I want to thank you for the french deal. The sweep EXP 36 is the best tire for me.

I use the tire warmer on the asphalt at 55 and i want to know if it's the good temperature for there tires.

Bye
