Josh Wheeler TQ'd and Won both Pro Truggy and Pro Buggy with VP-Pro tires at the RC Pro Series!

He used Turbo Trax in truggy and Blades/Axman in buggy.

yup I was there! Arrow engine ran flawless all weekend. I now have a gallon through it and I will be taking out the break-in shim and replacing the c-rod(so cheap why not right? lol) anyways Josh like always ran awesome! the tires really hooked up and the track layout wasn't for the faint of heart:eek:

i ran the premounted UF Axeman all weekend and they were Dialed!

Great Job Josh!

Gene was he using the same compound on the Blade/Axeman combo?

Med on both. That's what his father told me right before the buggy main started. He was hooked up all weekend.

Arrow GTR.21 after 1gal...!
 
ok guys well I got about 1gal swallowed up by my Arrow. I ran it all weekend at the Rc Pro Series in St.Louis. weather was steadily changing from cold and rainy to hot and humid at the end of the week. track was med size(170X75), smooth and damp at first then slowly started to dry out and groove up. all i gotta say the engine worked superb,,,absolutely zero hiccups, no flame-outs, great smooth and clean power band, and would idle all day long if you let it;)

here's a few pics of the piston and sleeve after 1gal. I'm running a 6.5mm nova insert, )OS P3 plug, and VP-Pro RS-1 pipe and Byrons 30/11 fuel. I run a Agama buggy with stock clutch setup. I will be taking out the break-in shim and start race tuning it and monitoring my lap times now that its broken in. I'll keep you guys posted.

Thanks. We ran a set of Blades during practice this past weekend and then ran Axemen to compare. They cut practice short so we didn't get to try the combo. I am a pretty big fan of the combo tire setups.

I just start running the Blade Evo and love them. I am going to try the axeman tonight.

But MF Turbo Trax are awesome nearly every where. If the track is real slick, the get UF Turbo Trax. The cutoffs work good on dusty and loose tracks too.

That is what I meant, they feel "harder" than Med Flexx Buggy T.Traxx. I ran the Med T.T. this weekend on a muddy/sandy track and they were awesome on that surface, and I am impressed with how mellow they feel going over ruts and chuckers.

I'll be running this weekend at the JConcepts Spring Nats in Omaha, NE and have 2 sets of the Med T.T., looking forward to seeing how they are on a dusty/blue-groove surface.

I do wish we had a VP Step Pin Truggy tire to choose from. Up here in the North, about 75% of our tracks are dry/dusty/loamy and Calibers/Sub-Cultures/City Blocks tend to be the choice.

Anyone interested in trying some vppro. I have a 5min qualifier used set of turbotrax for truggy. #904 str. Looking for maybe around 40 shipped? Great tires!

Where can I order VP Pro tools? A Main is always out of stock. I know I can get them direct, but I need to order some other parts and would like to get everything in 1 order so I don't have to pay shipping on 2 separate orders.

Thanks

Gene what pipe you been testing with the Arrow? I saw people talking the 2050 and the 2060 pipe for it? Also any idea on mileage you been getting? thanks

OS-2060 or Mugen 2042. I'm getting 9-10 so far but still breaking them in. Should be a 10-12 min motor. Arrow claims they get 14-15 min in Taiwan at their local track.
