Default US Version of Rug Racers arriving on Dec/20/2012

Hello Rug munchers!


We have 2 new exciting products for you! (or one? please read on to find out why)
  1. Rug Racers/QTS-EXP:We finished building SPEC Rug Racers set for the US, the US version have same rubber (QTS-EXP) as the UK Version of Rug Racers and also same inserts, EXP-LS.
  2. Stiffer Nylon wheels (EXP-WAN): which is Natural Nylon Beige in color, this Wheel is stiffer (true spin) than our Original EXP dish but still remains 1 piece after crashes. we think it's in perfect middle.
in efforts of making the BEST SEPC Tire for the US. we combined those 2 new items in to a single package. The US version of Rug racers will be glued on stiff Nylon wheels only.

The Stiff nylon wheels also serve a purpose for easy tech, cause the QTS-EXP (Rug Racers) is still in an early stage of it's form which carry same look as QTS-28, the difference between QTS-28 to Rug racers can not be detected by untrained person, but since it's only available with Natural color wheel, no more problem.

This tire is approved by the nations many fast Rug Racers, try a set today and you will agree.

Product Questions

Hi,

Which insert is used in - SWPSOGSPECPP?

And, what tire/insert would you recommend for a textured vinyl cushion floor (grade school basketball court)?

Thanks/RJ

Default EXP-30P

Just bought two sets. Are these supposed to come glued to the wheels? The ones I got are not.
Thanks, Terry

If you bought a US Version Yes, if you bought a "Pre Assembled" set or a set from other Continent it may not.

Default Sweep Tire Questions

Hello,

I have some questions about sweep tires, hope some of you can help...

1. We race a medium traction CRC carpet track and I have ran QTS Greens, QTS Blues and EXP 30s. I have found the QTS Blues to work well but how many good runs should I expect out of a set of tires? I fully understand that there are MANY variables to this questions but in 17.5 Spec class what are others seeing between new tires to where the tires are not at their best any longer, to when they are completely gone.

2. I tried the EXP30s thinking they would work well and they did for a run or two and now are slick as can be. I clean tires with motor spray between every and the tires show some wear but not to the extent they should be this bad.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

so we decided to try old EXP compound in QTS mold.

Since we got many of positive feedback from USA and UK,
We plan to release the tire officially soon!
Are these replacing the old Kitty Rug Tires?
