They have not made any decisions about new truggy tires yet.

The 3 new buggy tires are on the way. I expect them to arrive at VP-Pro USA in early January. Along with many other new products like air filter oil, 1/8th pinion gears, tool sets, air filters, closed cell foams, ect. :nod:

The Axman are sweet.

Hi Gene...Those results are from a club race at Mills Pond, not the Super Cup. The JC Super Cup is electric only and was held at a near by track earlier in the day. Hope to see everyone next weekend at the Clash :cool:.

Thanks,
Paul

VP-Pro USA will have a new Team manager for 2010. The TQ of 1/8 Expert buggy at the 2009 RC Pro Series International Finals, Matt "Puddin" Sistrunk. If you think you have the driving skills and would be a good representative for VP-Pro USA Racing Tires, please send your resume to:
puddin @vp-pro-usa.com

PUDDIN 12-02-2009 08:10 AM

They where the same pair used at the finals and Denver is still running the same Pair also. All of the tires last a long time.

crawler1 12-03-2009 09:09 PM

Denver loves the VP Pro tires they offer great traction and very good durabilty. Thank you Gene and Puddin for all your help and support. Denver and I look foward to very exciting year with VP Pro USA.

Well we had our toys for tots race today in Sumter SC at the Proving Grounds. It was a very cold day and calling for sleet and rain. We were able to get the whole race in before the rain came. I TQ the race running Cut Offs, the before the third round I switched to the turbo trax and they felt just as good as the cut offs but I felt quicker through the turns. I ran 10/ 5.05.06 with the cut offs and then ran a 10/ 5.05.66 with the turbo tax. I decided to stay with the turbo trax for the main. The main got started and I got off to a rocky start and finally settled down after several laps. By this time I was 2 laps down and charging, We finished the race in 2nd and only 1 lap down. Tires and clutches worked perfectly, I just got to work on my nerves a little better.
