Default Vp tires?

I was thinking about being a dealer for these. They look really good, how are the compounds? Any feedback would be great.

22Racer,

Hi, my name is Patricio, im from Chile-Southamerica and being related to VP since they launched their first tyre to the market even during the test phase of their first batches.

Right now the tyres are very very good, they have several patterns and in 3 compounds (Hard, Medium and Soft), being the Hard more or less like a M2 from proline, the Mediums like the M3 and the Soft even softer than the M3.

If you have any question, feel free to ask, couple weeks ago i tested other products from VP like clutches and fair filters and they are very very good too.

cya !

I've been running these tyres for about 8 months now and all I can say is thay are really good I was a die hard proline tyre guy before but now VP's are pretty much all I use. the only thing they need to work on is their pre glued you need to check them often to make sure they're not coming off but they really work well and the wear on them is pretty good concidering the grip they produce

here's a link to thier site

Ive been running them this year and my fav. tire is the 802. Great durability too, only thing is they come in a set, but are unglued. The canadian distributor should be getting the new 804's soon in premount/glued.

Also the clutch shoes work very well and are inexpensive.

The next big race we have is the X-games, www.rcxgames.com I was going to try the 803 Striker, it is a loamy horse arena. Most other tracks we go to we end up running holeshots for the main so I'm assuming the 804 turbo trax would work. How does the 801 and 802 work? and on what kind of surface, we rarely run a bowtie.
Thanks,

Rex
