Sweep Max Forward 17mm Hex 1/8 Mounted GT Foam Tires have been specially developed for 1/8 scale drag racing and speed run applications. These pre-mounts feature a specially designed wheel, and high density foam that have been bonded using a proprietary process that eliminates the need for further balancing. This creates a tire that is perfectly trued, and perfectly balanced, so they are ready to rip right out of the package.

  • Foam: Made out of race proven high density foams, that is long lasting and durable yet provides high traction.
  • Gluing/Mounting Process: Each wheel and tire is mounted on a special machine, and have been sanded and trued to perfection by people with decades of experience in foam tires fabricating. Requires no further balancing.

Sweep Max Forward Mounted 1/8 Drag Race & Speed Run Foam Tire (Black) (2) (X-Hard)
I do not recommend these. The are not what they advertised to be. These were advertised bas drag and speed run tires and I've never speed ran these tires but used them in drag. I can say with confidence and experience that these tires will break under load drag racing. My colleague broke the same tires on the very first trigger press and I did as well. I do not think it's so much as the foam but the rims. It is extremely fragile. I only have one set left and I use them for asphalt touring racing and they seem to work. But that's all they're good for. NOT AS ADVERTISED. Happy RC

Bought 2 sets for some drag racing. Hands down best grip you can get, they out perform the other brand (amain hobbies) sells.
