Raced at the airtronics winter nationals this last weekend and My Axman and turbo traxx on ultra flexx were totally hooked up on my D8 buggy. on my D8t truggy I ran medium flexx turbo traxx and they were awesome as well. I have not had a tire hook up as good as my Vp Pro's at this track. It is very loose and dry and poeple are always struggling with finding a tire that will hook up out there. I had a few people come up and ask what tires I was running. and after a whole weekend of racing they still look great, hardly even worn.:nod:

Yes, the VP-Pro wheels are a few mm smaller diameter then Losi/AKA/V2 wheels. VP wheels were release by VP Racing in 2006, but the VP-Pro tires are designed for them and fit them perfect. If you put VP-Pro tires on the larger wheels you have to streach them and the foam on, and it makes the tire flatter. I have not compared them to Mugen wheels but they are taller and wider and lighter then the old proline velocity wheels. I have not tried to mount proline or aka tires on VP wheels, but I would guess they would be a little to tall and big for them. VP-Pro tires are small/light weight/low profile tires. And the wheels are much lighter then losi/proline/aka wheels. And they fit my Losi 2.0 with no clearance problems.

I have heard that VP-Pro is working on an all new wheel - no details yet though but it should be V2 size - maybe even wider. The new Condor and Bull Dog tires are slightly larger then the 801-805's and will fit larger wheels better. Anyone here ever have a problem using the smaller diameter VP-Pro wheels on your buggy?

the tamiya TRF801X has had clearance problems with AKA wheels in the front. I have had no problems with the VP Pro rims on my TRF801X, hyper 9, and z-car.

will vp pro usa be getting the newly announced touring car tires? We have been doing some touring car racing here since the weather has been a big problem for offroad

I have to agree....VP tires seem to hook good everywhere. From hard packed tracks to tracks that are loose and loomy, they always get good traction and show little wear!

VP-Pro USA will most likely carry the onroad tires as well when they are available.
