Well I mount them two with side A and two with side B , now I remember which side to rotate them to have similar wear and tire last longer for example Side A I placed in them in the Front then when i rotate them Side A will go to the back and Bs to the front. But performance wise for me is all good in any side.

Ok guys, the Sweep Racing Exagons are the real deal. Team Mad Scientist was at our first club race of the year in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Local hot shoe Wayne Mah took a set of 2 run Exagon silvers for a test run in the second qualy and felt that the tires gave a really well balanced feal with excellent forward bite and held really well in the turns. He commented that they were one of the best tires that he has run so far. He used them for the 3rd qualy and also for the win in the a-main. He was also impressed that the tires held out so well considering the soft compound. Over 4 runs and the 15 minute main he had said that he felt no loss in traction and that he would easily run them a couple more qualies. The first round of the RCPro series for western Canada is in 3 weeks at the same track and Wayne is excited to put the Sweep Racing tires on and see what they can do against some of the best 8th scale buggy racers in Western Canada.....and with a sold out 150 entries we should have a pretty deep field of talented racers.\
Thanks.........Team Mad Scientist team manager-Dwayne Flodell

Finally got to run my SWEEP tires for the first time yesterday,Showed up to the track late conditions were hard packed with a lot of loom on top.Exagon blue compound was the ticket.Buggy was dialed from the time it hit the track.For the second round they blew the track off so i put the dirt effects in red compound on.The buggy was on rails.Tires are GREAT both sets were spot on for the track conditions.Gave my friend the Exagon to try for round two....had a hard time getting them back . These tires are going to free up a lot of room in my tire bag! Now all we need are these patterns and compound's in truggy tires!!!.

Default Few Emails

a Email from our 1/8th scale clients.



thanks for bringing these tires to the US
youll be getting some calls from the midwest area..lol I went to big race in nashville with adam drake and such and broke in the final but not after mounting a charge to fourth..
the tires were HOOKED up I was the only car there to triple double a section and it was due to having traction that everyone was fighting for.. the exagon tires were the ticket
cant wait for the ultra softs for the tracks out here in OH...
thanks again

go fast ! Sweep'em ALL!

Most of the people over at my local clubs would run calibers for the heats then move to revolvers for the finals. What sweep tires are similar to these two? pattern/handling wise?
