Just found my pic of race in Santa Barbara, CA at Elings International Raceway. An event held by OGRC. I ended up taking 3rd using VP PR0 UF Turbo Trax, which were dialed and consistent throughout the whole day. I also used UF Blades in the one heat, but had faster lap times with the Turbo Trax, so thats what i wore in main.

Gene, Any word on the Lipo batts coming to VP Pro, and the HV servos?
The servos will bee here next shipment.

New tires are coming in 2012 - like a Blockpact.

New compound also, Super Flexx.

Plus a new wheel balancer, new M wing, new foam inserts, and more!

i concur, shipping is always super fast. as far as the softer compound out here on the west coast it is almost a must where we race. everyone has always had a slight advantage because they run AKA super soft or proline M4 and the ultra flex was never quite THAT SOFT so a new softer compound is gonna be top notch. and for the servos, if they are a high voltage line similar in specs to the Hitec HV i will definitely give them a shot

i agree vp pro is by far the best company i have ever worked with, i mean my last order i placed at 12:30 and got a shipping comfiermation email with tracking number at 2 lol that is some fast shipping. As far as the new products go im stocked we needed the super flexx bad on the blades and turbo trax i think, they will never be used on the axmen i dont think, also excited to see this new tire. Wish they could have me some super flexx turbo trax for the crcrc.

The new tread pattern and new compound won't be out until later in 2012. That is just the new things VP-Pro Racing plans on working on, along with new Truggy tires next year.


But Hobby Pro USA has a lot of other exciting things coming in 2012 as well but I can't discuss them just yet.

I have bought both mounted and unmounted numerous times. You will be fine either way. Never had a problem with VP glue job
