Thanks Zixxer. What are the two common tread patterns to have in your tire bag?

Diffferent surfaces. Some are dry dusty and rough, others loamy. Then there is Leisure that will grove when run on enough. I know thats every track surface known to man but it varies alot around here. I currently carry AKA Citiblocks, Ibeams and Grid Irons(that covers just about all conditions).

The most common is dry dusty and hardpacked...

i would say then
cut-offs
axemen
and turbo traxx for LH

if you get a fourth set i would say strykers for loamy tracks ...truth is the axemen are good anywhere ....but it really pays to have at least 4 sets of different tires ..that way your not at a loss if you go to "that track" that you dont have a good set of tires for ...and with the prices being what they are and the tread life what it is ...the vp pro tires make it much more affordable

Exactly!!!!! Looking forward to trying them out and perhaps getting folks to run the tires here in the midwest.

+1 I have to say all the VP-PRO tires hook up killer!!! I dont know what secret mojo they put in the compound but they are amazing. I have tried all of them and they all work great. unlike any other brand tires I have used. The whells are great to and dont crack easy like some of the others. You guys will love 'em after you try "em

Usually Turbo trax on truggy if hard packed and cutoffs on truggy if its wet and soft.

what he said.. Tony, their the lightest truggy tire and wheel combo out there. You can actually feel the weight difference in your hand compared to anything else.

alright i know this is a nirto forum but i race a brushless matrix tr i'm trying to decide if i should purchase low or med flexx i'm going with cutoffs that much i know! by the time the truggies race the track is pretty beat up from everything else running before me! i have tried other soft tires and have had traction issues so i was leaning toward a slightly harder compound since my truggy weighs a bit more in electric what are your thoughts i'm purchasing a set tonight!! thanks!!

It depends on the track conditions, but Medium Flexx is the best all around compound and you can't go wrong with it.
