I requested that they make Condor and Striker STR truggy tires, but they have not decided which new truck tires to release yet.

Houston Area RC and VP Pro Truggy Tires
 
Ran the VP Truggy Tires for the HARC point series at Gulf Coast Raceway and ran all combo's on my MBX6T and every combo was just as quick as the other. Ended up running the turbo trax all the way around and qualified second. In the main it was a 15 min race and choose to run the turbo trax in the main since they showed little wear. Finished 2nd in the main. Awsome tires by VP Pro USA. Thanks Gene.

ultra flex and new tires
 
I ran VP-pro tires all last summer. They are the real deal. I never had to worry about lack of traction or wear. The mediums last forever and still yield very good traction. I am very excited to get some ultra flex's and hopefully the new condors and some truggies will be out soon.

VP-Pro USA receives about 3 sponsorship requests every day. Andrew has been busy for the holidays like everyone else, so he has not had time to respond yet. In Jan, VP-Pro will have a new team manager since myself and Andrew are so busy with other responsibilities. We will announce where to send resumes for the 2010 team soon.

The team is full for right now, but in the next few months current contracts will be up for possible renewal and we will accept new resumes then.

Congrats on the win Gene, but lets not mislead the readers. None of the guys mentioned in your post raced the Truggy class :weird:.

Good luck to everyone racing the Clash!

I did not race truggy class either. :D
In truggy, Factory Chad was racing, Chris Baron, Rob blatter. Not sure who else, but what does that matter? Walter Cruz won with VP-Pro Turbo Trax.

We can talk about the class that all the fast guys raced in.
In 1/8 Buggy, I had the fastest lap time in qualifying and the fastest lap in the A-main with wornout Ultra Flexx Turbo Trax that I ran in the 45 minute
A-main the week before at the RC Pro Florida State Series Finals that I TQ'd & won. :nod:
And congrats to Mitch for taking 1st with JC tires at the warm-up. ;)

Good Luck everyone and see ya all at the Clash at Hurricane!

Machine's R/C H 12-01-2009 08:52 AM

VP-Pro Tires also TQ & Won Buggy and Truggy at a series race in LA Sunday. Big Puddin can give the details.

Great Job Denver and Matt!
