Sweep Racing Revolt 1/8 buggy tyre

Sweep Racing Revolt 1/8 buggy tyre

Seen for the first time some days ago Sweep Racing now officially introduce the Revolt 1/8th buggy tyre. Sporting a newly designed tread to providing minimum tyre ballooning during acceleration for a precise driving feeling, the tyre sports a pair of centre pins that are completely connected at the base of the inner V-shaped pattern for maximum forward bite. The unique W-shaped tread of the Revolt provides smooth or aggressive steering feeling depending on the rotation direction. The pin size of the tyre is a little bit smaller than with the Square Armor and its height is as tall as the company’s Battle Star 2.0 with less spacing between pins for improved forward bite while providing smoother cornering feeling thanks to the optimal pin flex that also makes for longer tread life time.
