Gene have you tried this new pipe with the Aarrow engine? Still using the Losi RE12 on it and it screams.

What's the deal on your wide tires. I got some cut-off from eBay (not sure which flex, they feel soft). What's the difference between cut-off and wide cut-offs? Does the wide fit standard buggy wheels?

Thx

Yes the wider tires fit standard rims. The wider tire is slightly wider that the original. I have several wider versions of their tires.

Is it such a difference that if I run them at local club race, folks will notice and think I'm cheating?

Due to rising costs of material and labor in Taiwan over the last year, VP-Pro has raised their prices across the board. Hobby Pro USA has refrained from rasing their prices for as long as possible; but due to higher costs and fuel surcharges added to shipping expenses, the prices on all VP-Pro tires & accessories will be going up over the next 3 months. The website should reflect all the new prices by January 1st, 2012.

My recommendation is to stock up on all your favorite items now before the price increase takes affect.

Congrats to Andrew Smolnik for winning the 2011 Fall Brawl last weekend with VP-Pro tires.

Alan Burton finished 2nd for a 1-2 finish with the Agama A8 buggy as well.
