Sean I know Pfiefer did last year at Hobby World, and I have a few sets coming that I will run this year.. I have Strikers, and Condors on their way. I might try some Turbo Trax later in the year, but I have quite a few small pin tires..

I'm not real sure I'm going to like the condors myself, mainly because I never really liked the Revolvers, which are similar.. The Strykers I think will be Awesome for Hobby World or other semi-loose slightly damp track..

Well, we went to hobby world today! It was cold as a witch's titty in a brass bra! I tried out my new ultra flexx strikers and they did surprisingly well on the hard packed dusty track! They will be awesome on a moist track! I cant wait to try out the new belted tires that are coming out!!!!!

smc,

is your track abrasive or smooth. you said hard packed with dust. how much dust? condors might be a better tire for that track. Is tire wear and issue? condors are still big enough to penetrate thru most dust, they have great side bite too.

You should give the condors a shot especialy on damp tracks they hook up and self clean very well ....sandy or loamy tracks they are hooked,after the first teirs off the pins wear down they still perform well even on hard clay tracks..........

i agree with skillet, Condors are my favorite tire. Unless your running on near asphalt dirt they are dialed.

Are the standard yellow buggy wheels available? Only saw the wide and new V2 wheels on the site. Need some standard yellow wheels in a couple of weeks.

Thanks

Jon

Well I've got them coming and I will try them out on different surfaces and see for myself.. I'm sure I'll find a use for them.

I wouldnt consider hobby world an abrasive track. It was certainly dry with a covering of powder on top( maybe a 1/8th to an 1/4th of an inch). I wanted to give em a try because thats what the practice days are normally like. I know this is a VP thread but my city blocks were dialed. With that said, one of VP's new treads looks identical to the city block and that has me pumped!
