Haven't heard of the products until now.

All I can find on the site you posted is one buggy tire tread that is super-similar in its pattern to a ever-popular US company. Do you have any others?

Also; on the 1/8 buggy wings the site mentions 3 different designs; but I only see one currently. Appears to be a high downforce model with the middle two stabilizers...are there others? If so, please guide me to some pics.

The tread patterns are similar to pro line, but the compound is not, Its a longer lasting compound that is still very soft.

For the wings go to the products list and select wings, you can see the different colors, all the wings are high downforce and the wings all look the same but there are three different side dams, 2 are similar and the third is very different.

They were also the first company to announce a wide buggy tire and they are available too, The site needs a little updating to show all the new products.

Compound of the tire is AWESOME!! I sold a couple sets I got it to 2 friends and the rubber has awesome traction and feels really soft but wears at about half of what a proline soft or JConcepts soft does. Excellent product.

I switched from Crime Fighters and these are about the same in terms of grip but last a little longer.

Sorry for missing the other wing designs earlier; apparently my browser wasn't participating properly...

Looks like some very nice products
