The only Truggy tire change I heard of will be turbo trax in ultra flex.I feel they have Truggy tires covered with the turbo trax and the cutoffs.

Hi my friend ... i just installed the 3023 pipe on my GO 5 port (torque engine as yours) and it runs AWESOME, gave me 45 seconds more of runtime v/s the prior pipe i was using, it tame a little the super torque the engine have and let it breath better on high rpms ... take a chance on it ...

Yes, the RS-2 is a top end pipe. Depending on what pipe you switch from, it will give cooler temps, more RPM'S, and better fuel mileage. As much as 2 minutes vs a bottom end pipe during testing Puddin did with it. It performs similair to an OS-2060 pipe.

Do you guys plan on making those Ti Cvd axles for the Losi 2.0? I m pretty sure you would sell alot of those! And couplers would be good too.

Well I have to say now that I have tried almost all the tires VP-PRO has they are all great tires. THey all hook up great and last a long time. The wheels are strong, I have not had 1 cracked wheel so far as with was a common thing with the other brands I used to use. And the foams last. I even re-used some foams a couple times and they they are still in perfect shape.

I ordered the Vp-Pro pipe so I will update you guys on how it performes run WERKS,Sirio, Orion engines since I run WERKS.

Just got to give VP-PRO props on coming out with amazing products that are as good(or better in my opinion) Than the big brands At a Racer freindly price.

Tabushi, never tried VP Pro Air Filter oil, I oil my inner and outer filters, first oil both filters then I put a small amount of grease on the inner filter, not on core filter, just the edges on both ends with a cotton ear bud. Wash/replace outer as race day progresses, gives it that perfect fit.

We had our annual Aiken spring cup today. track conditions where changing from morning to afternoon to the evening. Track conditions went loose to blue groove and wearing tires out to blue groove and slippery as it cooled in the evening. I ran the turbo tax to start and put down some of my fastest lap time, but not very consistant. switched to the cutt offs and my lap times were a little slower but more consistant. I chose the cut offs for then 30 min main. qualified 5th and finished 2nd. Wish it would have been first but that is the way it goes sometime. excellent tires and I can't wait for the ultra flex truggy tires to get here.
