Thank god for usps. Tires are the best that I have ever used, last forever and produces great traction, clutch shoes well, all I can say is wow, 3 races and they still have a lot of life to go. I was able to finally use the fuel gun and it worked perfectly, fast and no leaking.

when can we expect to see the new truggy tires and when can we order them? We have a new track that is really loose and nothing seems to really hook up well. any suggestions?

Medium flex cutoffs. I have found they hook up when nothing else will. The turbo trax are good for hard pack or blue grooved tracks.

I was wondering if VP-Pro rims are of a large diameter like Proline's V2 or AKA? Are the ultra-flexx compound similar to M3?

I'm going to have to agree that the VP Cutoffs in Med Flexx are DIALED. I actually glued up 2 sets of cutoffs and 2 sets of turbo trax for my truggies a few weeks ago. Med flexx is is perfect, as it continues to hook up and does not wear like the other tires I've used. I'd really like to see something like a Condor STR in the future.

I also need to comment on the VP Pro servo arms. Now, I use Hitec 7955TGs all around, on everything. They're just that reliable and perform as I need them. THAT SAID, I tend to bend aluminum servo arms. However, I have yet to even come close with the VP arm. It's stronger than anything out there and looks damn cool too!

PUDDIN... Which springs are you using on your losi clutch? I'm still running the factory ones in my trugg, so that I can have a good baseline for when I switch out for the VP ones. Any advice?

Ultra flexx is like a m3 but they do not wear like a m3 tire. The wheels are not like the aka or v2's

I tested the vp-pro pipe and you will be surprised the results I will get all my notes together and post them it is a very detailed test.
