Hey D,

I spoke to John at RC Fun yesterday, and he is getting ready to place an order with them including the Ultra Flexx compounds. Contact him or give me a call if you have any questions.

I run there tires, clutches/springs, tire glue, servo arms, and thread lock so far, and I am loving everything. Tires have alot of traction and great wear. I will be ordering several new things this week from them, and I will give some feed back later on my new purchases.

VP-Pro-USA has added alot of new things to there website in the past week or so. Check'em out.

I have not tried everything but the tires are really good I have noticed that the ultra flexx compound works really good and almost no wear compared to others. I tried some med flex with the ofna pink foams and they felt really good. Some people at the race this weekend thaught it was pretty cool that the ultra flex and med flexx come with diffrent foams. Before you mount your tires always check your foams out.

Default GCS race 9

Well I finally got to use the fuel gun for the first time. I have to say that it was much easier and a whole lot faster than the fuel bottle. It seemed to flow faster than other that I was watching. I was running my RC8T running both the turbo trax and cutoffs during qualifying. I ended up running the cutoffs in the main and finished with a 4th place finish. I have to say that the vp clutch shoes are holding up beyond my expectations. 3rd race on these and I exspect several more before replacing. Thanks for an excellent product and lets keep them good products coming.

I would like to apologize on behave of VP-Pro USA to everyone who has sent an e-mail and not received a response. The webmaster who set up the site and e-mail account back in April, left the spam filter on and nearly half of the e-mails sent to VP-Pro USA were sent to a junk box and deleted automatically. VP-Pro has hired a new webmaster and it seems that all e-mails are now being received and are answered within 48 hours.

The good news is that the Taiwan and USA VP-Racing websites have both been overhauled and are much easier to navigate now. Check them out and look for TEAM VP-Pro USA at a RC Pro Series race near you. VP-Pro USA is the official tire sponsor of the 2009 RC Pro Series and also a sponsor of RCTech.net

it's really a great, reliable, non leaking and fast gadget!
and it's cheap, too, compared to the competition.

Ive used the fuel gun for about 4 months now... and I've never had a leak. Very well designed fuel gun. Great price too!

If your local hobby shop doesn't have them in stock then www.vp-pro-usa.com usually has everything in stock at all times.

Actually..... this week's P.O.W. product is the fuel gun. ; )


P.O.W. (Product of the Week) is a program that VP Pro does, to help out United States Veterans. Every P.O.W. product purchases, helps as VP Pro USA proudly contributes a portion of the proceeds to the Veterans of America.

Woot woot! Have a great day guys!
