I know I want to try them! I was given a pair that a 1/8th guy won in the raffle since he couldn't use them. The only problem is that our season is almost over for the summer.... I can only make the last two races for the year. "Darn" snow........

Thoes new wheels look WAY MUCH BETTER than dish wheels!!!!

Hopefully we can get some of the newer compounds before the midwest race at the end of september scott. However the 45,s worked great for me.

Default Tires coming back in stock

Hello Racers.

We had tires in back order for 2-3 weeks so far, because of our factory had 1 week long vacation for every one.

they are back in full force to fullfill all our orders, incleuding EXP compounds.

Thank you for all the supports and love you guys showed for this "so new company" in the GT racing scene.

at this point, IGThobbies, Brooklynhobbies and the Cruizing w/RC should have our tires in stock.

again Thank you

Go fast & Sweep'em ALL!

Default sweep takes the win again

Just want to comment again on how good the tires are . I won again for the 4th week straight with exp slicks in the back and regular slicks in the front of my ofna dm1 . Standing up the front shocks was a great help too. The warrior body was a plus too. Cant wait to see the sweep tires work on our mugen prototype gt car !

I ran the exp45gt tread tire last nite in the parking lot that we race at every Friday nite, the Temp started out at 60 and dropped thru the nite to around 50. I could'nt get them to hook up ,did about 15 laps came off the track and they still looked like they did when I took them out of the bag, so I went back to my grp's.
I will try them again next week, maybe they need a couple of heat cycles.
I'm running them on a Inferno gt2 with a Picco modded 28.

Hello

yes, you may need to break in little more to create a air gap between inserts, or if it s a unprepped parking lot, you may need the EXP tires.

thanks
