Default FEEDBACK ON MUCHMORE SWEEP TIRES

I bought a set of Muchmore Sweep 36's and have 4 - 10 min runs on them. Seem to be holding up well. I run at Tamiya USA (outdoor asphalt track) with a 416 WCE, 5400 lipo, 13.5 Novak, LRP SPX. I typically run for 10-12 min per run.

Tires seem to overheat at about the 8 min mark, Sorex/Speedmind never seemed to fade at all on this track.

Any feedback about the longevity of the tires and durability of the wheels (they seem quite brittle and hard, haven't cracked yet, have made a few slight impacts)

These tires are quite a bit cheaper than the new Sorex premounts. Thinking about ordering multiple sets, just want to get some feedback on the longevity of these tires, I only have only been able to make 4 runs with them so far.

I bought a set of Sweep 32s (pre-mount) a couple of weeks back.

Very impressed with them, but last week my shell got bent in a race and shredded one of the front tyres

Would have happened to any brand I guess, so going to order some more soon.

we used them for the ETS series !!!

they were good for the first run then the drop off in pace was about 0.5 seconds a lap

i pesonally though they were rubbish , the grip was sketchy and inconsistant

but maybe that was just my driving

Funny story.. One of our Mod drivers put a set on and didn't realize they come unglued until they all fell off.

I had won two sets off ebay (One for $5 and another for $12). Looked good but the rims are junk. Way to brittle and cracked after a couple of runs....

My $.02

Plus if you're in Europe, you can easily get Sorex tires mounted on the Revlite rims. I've heard that it's one of the best combos around.

You might wana try the Yellow rimmed SWEEP 32's that Rug Racers, Eversley and BIWS will be using for there winter series.
The new rims seem to be made of the same material as buggy rims, you wont brake them in a hurry I can tell you. I personally have done many laps/minites on them, as have a lot of our club racers, as have the Eversley club racers.

They have a pink insert which is slightly softer, yet fuller, giving a lesser air gap, therefore less tyre roll. They still have the SWEEP 32 tyre we used at RR last year, the combination is awsome on carpet, and using X1 MM tyre cleaner as well as an addative.

I have not been a fan of the old sweep rims but The tyres on our outdoor asphalt track were quicker than just about any tyre but you would be lucky to get 2 meets out of a set before the rims disintegrated. We used the new tyres at our state titles this last weekend and they stood up very well. We used 36's where 32's would have been preferable but you cant anticipate cold days when it SHOULD be hotter


The new rims make gluing super easy and it took me all of 5 minutes and I only had to touch up the gluing on 1 rim. They have had 9 runs on them using simple green to clean and Norsam Asphalt additive. We were cooking them hard to get them to hook up and they would be great for about 3 minutes then just too cold for the conditions and things got a bit skatey. I did not rotate my tyres all event and only the left rear started to get a slight touch of death groove on the inside otherwise the other 3 are near new. I still have a 5 run set of practice tyres that look just scrubbed in. With all the left overs from this event they will be getting a fair bit of use here this summer as our hot tracks can be punishing on tyres.
