SweepRacingUSA,
I know it was asked earlier, but for TCS racing a 24mm tire is used, not 26mm.

What are your recommendations for an asphalt track (Jackson RC in New Jersey) when using Tamiya B3 tires?

I've seen recommendations for your Blue 2501 or Aqua 2507, just wanted your take on it.

Thanks
Dave

#2501 will works fine for few runs, but #2507 thin, medium should works as good as the 2507 but last lot longer.

thanks

This body is great!! Ulw was tested and it transitions very well in super high bite black crc carpet! Only thing I'd be afraid of is body tucks, and someone painting it with my race scheme, as it is seriously thin!

Wondering if anyone could tell me what a set of QTS28/32’s weigh? Trying to get a comparison to a set of Sorex 28 premounts

Thanks.

I have a used set left over from a few years ago. Not sure if they have changed design since then. They are 123g

Anyone have recommendations for different additives that work with Sweep tyres on carpet.

I believe they're QTS based tyres.

So you recommend the 28r’s over the QTS28 carpet tire for CRC grey?

Works with all the sauces out there, its just different tracks with different drivers input.

QTS is made for the carpet for sure, but if it's open tires racing. R series pick up more traction on corners on some low grip surfaces.

Thanks.
The Schumacher Sorex premounts with the lightweight black inserts are ~6g per wheel/tire lighter than the sweep qts32/28 ith the medium carbon insert. The qts with the light blue LT insert is ~6g lighter than the qts with the medium carbon insert.

The QTS32 with LT insert is one of my favorite tires for black carpet. I could only find the QTS premounts with LT inserts at Amain and they are now out of stock.

After the first dry round of the BRCA Clubmans this weekend at Adur I got to drive the new Sweep BRCA Control tyres (EXP-34R2PG-B) and I wondered what other people's experiences were with these tyres. I used the same set for Blinky 17.5 Practice, Q1, Q2, Q3 ,Q4 and F1. I changed to a new set for F2 as I was loosing grip with the 1st set by this point. So 6 runs in total before feeling loss of grip and seeing a groove appearing on the inside rim of the tyre. In hindsight I probably should have changed for Q3 or Q4, but grip felt fine up until half way through F1.

Obviously it depends on car setup and track temp (Adur was a hot day with track temps in excess of 37C) but would people say 5/6 runs for competition is about right?
Also when is it best to change tyres and how do you use your 2 sets during the day?
With 2 sets allowed per meeting do people use set 1 for Q1 and Q2 then change to set 2 for Q3 and Q4 to maximize their qualifying position, then use set 1 for F1 and set 2 for F2?
I'd be interested to know what people's tyre strategy is like.
