Default NEW EXP Sweep tires Qual 5th in Pre-IFMAR by Dani Choi!








Hello racers

I'm pleased to inform Dani Choi lands his Sweep mounted Mugen/Alpha machine on 5th at the race, this young so-new driver who originally from South Korea now reside at California shock the world.

Dani Choi who also was almost private pilot until this event got his American dream in RC version done by collecting a chassis sponsor at this race.

He was running the AKA until he tried our all NEW EXP compounds, he immediately improved his time, of cos he ran EXP EXAGON tires in all qual races with great success, our all new EXP racing rubber turning heads at the tracks!

the Exagon and all 1/8th products from the sweep racing will be available at http://sweepracingusa.com very soon, you can register at our site to be notified once the tires are available.

Stay tuned!

I read somewhere they put "oil" on the dirt to make it tack up, that is why it's so black.

actually tires are lasting a while there, thats what they are saying anyways.

its a mixture of old motor oil, vegi oil and diesel to keep the track dust down, and to keep the track from blowing out.

Hey congrats on the great results,

Monty, i raced there in dec (nitro party) and the track has alot of bite but tires seems to last forever over there i ran M3 Calibers, one set was good for 8 rounds of free practice, 2 controled practice and 1 qual heat and i changed it because i wanted to try the closed cell foam not because it was gone.....its weird. the mix is veg oil + diesel, when they first lay it down, you will be sliding all over the place, few hours later its grip grip and more grip.

cheers
Ali

I have actually ran 2 sets of the Sweep tires. I ran the Battlestar and StarTrek patterns on Super Soft. I really like them. I bought them pre-glued for $40 for a set of 4. You really cannot beat them with a stick. I would like to try out the other patterns that they have, but they are really hard to come by. I will definitely keep looking for them though. Great tire. If you are thinking about trying them...definitely find them and give them a shot. You won't be dissappointed, that is for sure.
