Our Rubber selection
  • GT: Made out of Natural virgin rubber, great for VHT, Sugar coated tracks (one color dot)
  • EXP: Made out of Synthetic rubber, most traction, generally last longer (two color dots)
Our Inserts selection
  • Full face inserts: Next level of a machined insert that fits the wheel and tire perfect, allowing the tire patch to make full contact with the surface, which in turn promotes more consistent performance and much longer tire life.
  • Strip Inserts: A standard with GT tires, a strip of foam that allows a cushion of air between the tire and inserts, lightest way to assembled a tire.
Our Tire Pattern
  • Slick: Made for commercial track or even smooth surface.
  • Treaded: Very unique patterns for uneven surface such as parking lots.
Our Shore Rating recommendation:
  • 40 Green dot/Ultra Soft compound: Cold weather.
  • 45 Blue dot/Soft compound: Cool Weather.
  • 50 Red dot/Medium compound: Hot weather.
  • 55 Gold dot/Hard compound: Sizzling weather.
Note for Electric powered GT racers:
Our GT tires is designed for Nitro Powered GTs in mind, even thought some racers had great success with our tires on their "Insane Speed" runs with 2S-6S Lipo/Brusheless Motor equipped machines but we do not recommend our tires for that kind of racing or nor warranty or guarantees of any kinds for that matters. our tires are designed for "Circuit Racing" where Lap times are most important.

1st IFMAR GT8 World Champion event was announced on the RedRC on June/9/2015, here is the link to the rule book.

Sweep GT slick tires took 1st and 2nd at Rocky Mountain Challenge on 15th of Aug.2010 at Denver Colorado. Those tires hook up very well with VHT prepped tracks.
