    Joint WCICS Sweep

    As WCICS celebrates its 24th year as one of the world’s largest R/C series, organizers are proud to announce a new multi-year agreement with Sweep Racing as the spec tire for the Touring Car Stock and Modified Classes. President Josh Carter commented, “We tested 5 different tires/compounds/manufacturers last season, and by far the best tire for our series was the Sweep Racing QTS-32 Tire. Very consistent, good grip from the first lap, and the most durable, best assembled & glued tire we’ve ever seen! The WCICS logo on the wheel is a great feature and helps us build the WCICS brand as well as making Tech inspections a snap! Huge thanks to John at Sweep Racing USA for the great product, and we’re looking forward to many successful years together!” Read more…

    XRAY sweeps the Great Lakes Challenge

    September 2, 2014 - 17:26 by Mike Garrison 0 Comments

    Ralph Burch

    The 2014 Great Lakes Challenge in Toledo Ohio had a nice turnout of 130 entries between four classes. In the 1/10 sedan class Ralph Burch and Paolo Morganti dominated the qualifying with Paolo coming out with the TQ. The final would end up being a great race all the way to the end. Paolo went with the strategy not to change tires, but Ralph went with the strategy to change tires and that would make for a very close finish. Ralph Lead most of the first half of the final and was able to put the field a lap down, until he changed tires at the halfway point of the 45 minute final. After changing tires Ralph was down by one and a half laps, and would put on a charge to run Paolo down and pass him on the next to last lap to take the victory. Read more…
