I am filling the rim up with glue. I have never been one to go light on the glue. The more the merrier.

Default pl vtrs

i havnt got to run them but just got m2 and m3 in holeshots,calibers,and revolvers i can say they glued up easy and i did sand wheels and tires and wiped them. and as for the dude askin if aka wheels and such work the vtr is 4" wheel and lpr's are 3.7-3.8 so i would bet they wont work at all. other then that they do look great wont get to run them till the 28th though.

I just got a fresh set of XTR Calibers for my buggy. I ran some M2 on my buggy at the Ohio Fair race. They were KILLER ! I also ran the XTR's on my truggy in the 45min main with little to no wear visible.

What foams come with the calibers? Are they just the standard greyish white molded, or the blue molded foams? Ive got a set on order and not sure if i want to use the PL foams or AKA's. What works the best with these tires?

the new proline foams are NOT out yet....article said it was a couple weeks when i saw the article on neobuggy and they would never be able to re supply shops and online retailer's that quick with the new tires/foams....I cant wait to try them out....i just wonder how the Ribs in the foams will play with other Mfgs carcasses...as some have ribs...some have a checkered patter's....im sure they will fit nice tho.

The blue foam must only come with the truggy tires. The buggy calibers come with standard greyish molded foam.

I just got my calibers for my truggy and I'm ready to mount them but I don't see a vent hole. How is everyone running them with or without a vent? The foams in mine are blue and they are pretty soft.
