Thanks for the info Ryan......what compounds do you reccomend......when the track is dry and loose and when the track is moist and stays together?
Thanks.

Where are sweep tyres made, Japan or Korea?

Are the pre glued tyres balanced from factory?

Thanks

I just ordered two sets after meeting a fast guy named Moe from out of town at the Rebel Open race that we just had this past weekend at our local track here in TN. (White House Hobbies) His buggy seemed to really be hooking up so I thought I would give them a try, at this price I don't think I can go wrong! Our track is always as hard as a brick with alot of dust so I ordered the red dot tires (Exagon/Dirt Effects). I'll chime back in after our next race in a couple of weeks.

Dwayne,
You can try silver(ultra soft) compound for the dry and loose track first.
when the track get moist or warm, you can switch to blue(extra soft)/red(soft)/white(medium)

Korea.
We have full facilities to design/produce on and off tires in Korea(near by capital city-Seoul).
Sweep tires/inserts/wheels are well balanced before you put weight clay, just need to put a small amount if you want more balanced..

thanks,

Ryan

Ryan thanks, I am bringing Sweep tires into Canada for my team drivers (Team Mad Scientist) and other drivers in the RCPro series in western Canada. I will have my first order come in this week. I ordered Silvers and blues so we should have a good starting point.

Hey George
Let me know what you think, I'm pretty sure you'll like the exagons there they had a ton of bite and didn't catch and ruts at all
Ultra soft might be a bit too soft for the hotter days but would be awesome just after they water!

Well hello Mo, good to see ya here. Hope you enjoyed your self at the Rebel and thanks for taking the time to talk to us yokels LOL! With the hot weather coming up I thought I would give the reds a shot first as for watering the track...that doesn't happen very often! OBTW you weren't kidding about the fast shipping, ordered the tires last night after 9pm and they are already on the way.
Thanks, George C.

Ordered my tires on 4/19 at 9pm and received them this morning...WOW...now that's service! The tires look and feel as good if not better than any that I have bought from the other guys and at half the cost! Can't wait to mount em up and throw em down on the track, but that will have to wait for a couple of weeks. Supposed to rain this weekend then we race the next. I will post how they worked for me then.
OBTW they came with a great looking set of foams also!

i must say i was pretty impressed with blue dot battle star tires at the first round of our northwest championship tour race this past weekend . tires had great grip on the fairly loose dirt track with many ruts and loose dirt burms . no issues with the tires and i was very impressed with the fit , finish and quality of the tires and rims .


great job sweep racing , keep up the good work

next up , trial of dirt effects blue dot
