deadmancourt. which one works the best? I would run that one and go to a harder compound, either medium or even hard. Once the axeman truggies are out they should last longer than the cutoffs too. Axeman truggies will be "THE" tire!

deadmancourt, I would think bcuz they water you will want the cutoff. the turbos will probably pack up in that situation. unless it is clay and no fluff at all. Turbos are more of a groove or clay tire. start with mediums. the vp pros last longer than most anyways. And good luck!

The VP Pro truggy wheels are an LPR type rim. I like the Turbo or small pin even on a wet track because they load less than a larger pin. Turbo Trax ultra flex are an awesome choice, thats all I run.

Thats all that I use as well, very reasonably priced and just as good of quality as anything else. I wish there was a little bit bigger selection on diff oil weights, but I work with what I got

Default Just an observation

I was at an event a couple years ago and noticed some VP Pro tires. They looked very high quality. I would think the tires are capable of winning a number of races. The problem that I've seen though is that there is not a single guy (that I'm aware of) anywhere in the midwest running them. I would think it would be in the interest of the company to pick up a couple drivers. The Omaha Hobbyplex is a huge growing racing community that makes most of the so called "big" tracks look small. It could be a start. Again, just an observation... no ill intent at all

10,000cts is coming soon. And I mix 1k & 3k 50/50 to get 2,000.

We have a strong team in the West, FL, and the South, as well as several drivers in the East & North East. But we are still looking for good reps in the MidWest.
