Default LPR vs. VTR

What's the difference between the Proline PR and VTR. I know the LPR is 3.7" and VTR is 4.0". Anything else? What do you all run and why?

The VTR sidewall gives it a faster reaction then the LPR tire. The tires are easier to glue, but are illegal at ROAR events due to the bead being 4 inches. The 3.7 inch bead of the LPR is legal.

I also noticed a huge price difference for the VTRs

the sidewall on them vtr and lpr is the same, the mounting surface is different. also the vtr tires are a little narrower than the lpr tires giving them the feel of better being more nimble and better response.

Default From the horses mouth

Here's the answer in detail, straight from Proline.

After watching and learning I took advantage of the Black Friday special from Amain and ordered VTR calibers M2

marshon50
that is a good video. very informative. In the vid they say that ROAR gave the OK to use the VTR for 2009 but are debating the use of them in 2010. Anybody know if they've made a decision?

A LOT lighter compared to the Old LPR 220g+ each.

Holeshot VTR's are i think THE lightest combo on the market currently for truggy.

Nope....ran a soft citi beam combo all weekend...was really just looking to burn them down.....Citi's are toast....beams still got some life in em.

I know Adrian tried them and im pretty sure its what he ran in the main.

Wow I watched that video in the earlier link and they said the jury was still out. I wonder when it was filmed. If that's the case, that sucks for Proline. I still think they'll get guys like me and most of the people at our track to buy them since we go by "anything goes rules". I hope they don't become "poorline" after tooling up and all the R&D that went into them.
