I believe it was stated that they're HPI 200 mm bodies. Lemme put my orange/black/blue striped scheme on one and then you can say "Looks GRRRRRREAT!"

I know that the Scion Challenge Series in So Cal all used the same body, and they were available at the tracks / shops that hosted the series. (TQRCRACING.COM) was one.

I believe they were all HPI Scion FRS bodies -

I really wanted to run in the series, but do mine up in the Subaru BRZ colors

Maybe if it was an F1 car

I understand the next batch of tires has been put on order already. I suppose that indicates a positive response to the new tires

My order arrived in only 2 days shipped to ATX, very fast shipping... Thanks Paul

I also love the decals that come with the wheels and tires to help you remember car setups, very cool

Only question I have is the included foams appear to be closed cell, are you guys slicing them with a hobby knife before inserting and then re-gluing to make it easier to balance the wheel? Or did the rule change to allow for closed cell foams too?

They are very low profile open cell inserts. I just put them on normal without any modification and glued them up.

I must admit, I thought that the difference between open cell vs closed cell was simply whether the insert had a cut slit. Many of the HPI foams were just a flat piece of foam that I would have to patch together with some contact cement in order to "close" the foam up, hence why I thought that is what made their foams "open cell".

I found this link here which explains the difference between open and closed cell foams, and frankly it's nearly impossible to tell the difference to an untrained eye:

http://www.foam-tech.com/products/ur...losed_cell.htm


How is an entry level racer going to figure out what to select when manufacturers don't specify, for example these foams here are billed specifically for asphalt racing:

http://www.sweepracingusa.com/110-TC...et_p_207.html#



then these foams here are billed for carpet racing:

http://www.sweepracingusa.com/110-TC...set_p_412.html




Now I can't tell the difference whether it's open or closed cell (they don't say anywhere in the product details that I can see), but it would make more sense to me to use the appropriate foam for the intended application by the manufacturer to get the best possible wear and performance out of the tire. Both from an economical and performance point of view.

I've been running the first set of foams in my 24mm RIDE tires on an asphalt track for a few race days and my car has hooked up like it's on rails with nearly no signs of tire wear. Nothing close to what I was seeing with the HPI tires.

It will be interesting to test and see both in performance and wear with the new spec tire/foam combo and contrast them with what I've been using lately.

Bill, you can definitely see and feel a difference between open cell foam and closed cell. Open cell is what you typically find used for egg crate foam, or room sound deadening material. Closed cell feels more like foam rubber or rubber matting.

Both of the Sweep foams you've shown above are closed cell. They're just different durometers for different applications.
