The new tires came in and sold out very fast. VP-Pro USA will be getting a large shipment in early next month. I finally tested the Gripz and Blades and both were very good. They are worth the wait.

The new wheels are in stock now.

Can you give us a little detail on your testing?

Thanks

I ran all of our tires back to back for a few laps at the PNB. The Gripz felt like Axman but even more all around traction. The Blades felt like Turbo Trax but better in the dust and last way longer.

But I still used Ultra Flexx Turbo Trax because they were the best in the bumps because they don't catch any ruts at all.

I used the blades at the rc pro series .at mikes.during the 3rd round qualifying and ran
the same tires in the main.Turned my fastest lap with them.....24 sec.
Awsome tire for dusty hard clay tracks...Car really rotated well and lots of foward
traction.Went from dead last to second and chaseing the leader until a broken shock tower
ended my run.....dang graphite shock towers.

I knew you had those at the race, Thanks for the reply. We will test some before the RC Pro race in Corpus for the Texas guys as soon as they are back in stock.
