Yep.
The Gripz is non directional.
And the Blades have all the pins connected for less flex. It's basically a dual stage Turbo Trax.

I can't wait to test them out.

Stu541,

I know what you mean. The compounds are actually the same. The axeman feel softer because of the pin height and shape making them feel softer. The Condor pins are short and stubby which allows for less pin flexx making the pin feel harder.

The Blades pictured above would feel more like the Axeman wheras the Gripz have a stiffer more reinforced pin. ; )

Hope that helps.

I'm sold either way. mainly curious. I have been running vp pro since they hit the states. I love the way they wear and the traction I get. up here I could probably get by with axeman and condors alone. Be nice to get some truggy tire in those. But with these new treads I will definately be dialed anywhere. Thanks Gene, and Andrew for hooking us all up.

UF Turbo Trax or Cutoffs. If wear is high, then Medium Flexx.

I think the turbo trax will be better. Since wear is high you might want to go with medium flex like Gene said.

How is everyone liking the VPPro M Wing? Any better than a stock Losi? I just bought one. Waiting for the warmer weather to try it out at the track!

Also, Thanks to Vp Pro for shipping so fast on my order!
