Congrats on the Rose City win. You gotta love those Sweeps. Speedy, my wife says I could be Santa if I wasn't so annoyed by little kids.

It looks like not only Spooky made his GT car lighter, but also made himself lighter as well. Hmmmm.........I am gonna try to make myself lighter as well to help with my reaction time on the driver stand

Whichever one of us is lighter, the other has to buy dinner. Your reaction times are just fine.

That body is a the BYSM pontiac. I love it. They are very strong and hook up great. Downside, they only fit the GT1 Mcsquish, I see on my list where you have been very naughty. No soup or tires for you.

thanks spooky,

sometimes, i feel that i should have bought the gt1 instead of the gt2. it seems as if there are far more options available for the GT1.

further more, i also wish some company would develop a luxury GT car similar to that of a BMT 081. garbon fiber everything + belt driven + more optional bodies available.

Everyone here runs the short chassis. I even run it on big sweepy tracks. Far more bodies and goodies available. I like the way it handles better as well.

This is great to see. Short notice for many of us, but should be a great racing event.

Sweep tires sweep the podium at the Utah IR/CR point series. Sweep also filled the A-main at the Timpanogas Harley Davidson GT only point series. Pics and info to follow.

Great time we all had running in the IRCR points series races this past weekend. We had a sudden down pour between the qualifying and the mains, Most of us were running sweeps tires. Even with the rain washing away the treated track surface the sweeps tires were hooking up great. I even was testing the track out before it dried of and still had pretty good grip on the damp track. My car was handling great, running the 55 exp slicks. I was hoping to have something for Gus in in the last race, but it wasn't meant to be with getting flipped on my lid at the start of the Main, I came from last to second and we had a great battle for 2nd. but we weren't going to catch Gus. But what else is new.

Few notes about the tires. Gus set the 4 fastest laps ever run with an IGT on the track and they were all in the same run. His car was fast and handling great. He also set a record with the highest lap total in a race. This shows the consistency of the tires and his driving through the run.

Congrats to Gus (Sweep's driver) and to Sweep Racing for the great tires compounds and indestructible rims.
