Hey Leon, what is the range of the Xray? I have to make sure to stay far away from being xray'ed.

WINTER IS OVER!!!! Let the fun begin. I just got caught up on what all happened over the winter and I am more then ready to hit the track. I didn't see anything posted, so I am wondering if Sweep has anything new in the works?
It feels good to be back....

So figured I'd test out the wheel strength on some used up 50 EXP's. Final verdict, one wheel broke 2 spokes, the other one didn't break at all. Neither have stress fractures. And the one that did bust out a spoke doesn't really even flex more than a new one. I'd still race with it if it had rubber! Ssooo impressed!

C-Trickle, I liked the test. I have been hybernating over the winter and didn't hear about new wheels, what changed?

Nothing new with Sweep wheels, same indestructible wheels they've always had. I just wanted to see what abuse they could take.

You're a sick man , Cole. I ran a set of 55 shore for a 30min. main and then ran the same set for an hour main at the Nationals, and they are good for at least another month of racing. These tires are the best wear I've seen. They actually got better after the first main . Consistent bite all the way through the hour main. Thanks , Sweep , love those tires.
