There has been testing done in Canada and a select few in the US and feedback has been amazing. Right now they will be available in Pre-glued wheel/tire combo's first and come in re-sealable bags.

Yep that is from the international site. Pricing will be very competitive with other brands out there now. All that should be finalized within a week or sooner.

Wow the upsilon tread looks to be a dead exact copy of the proline revolver.

Just an update, Tires should be in stock before the end of the month.

Alpha Tyres were ran at the Florida RC PRO this weekend and both racers qualified in both A-main Sportsman buggy and A-main PRO buggy..

I tried out a set of Upsilon's this weekend on my Agama A8 and got me into the A-main in Pro buggy. Tires worked great all weekend. Ran the Soft compound and after practice, 2 quals and a 30 minute main they are still good to go. Light wear but good for a another race day no problem. Gonna try the Omicrons next. The track got so grooved up that the upsilons had so much sidebite it was crazy, almost too much lol. My problem was me sweating too much and getting in my eyes burning em so I could not see too well. Gonna have to get a sweatband next time

Running the K8T only right now. Actually have not been under contract for a long time now and have been running Caster's because I really like them and choose too. Not only for a sponsor discount. Dont get me wrong. I do help out Caster alot and do some R&D mainly for the Truggy for them. You know I own a hobby shop so can run alot of different stuff if i wanted to. When the Agama came out it really peaked my interest so I wanted to give it a try.

Just got a set of the KHI alpha tires in. I got the ultra softs and they feel NIIICE! Gonna try them out this weeked at our finals for our night race series. Pic posted below.

Also took a good look at my Upsilons after last weekend RC PRO race to check and see how they faired and all is good. No cracked rims, foams are still nice and firm and still enough tread for another complete race day probably. Can't complain one bit. Great tires so far. People will not be dissapointed. I was running VP PRO for buggy awhile now and these are on par with them and just as good.

There's lots of good tires out now and most of them are really inexpensive. Its the foams that make or break a tire for me, so some info on the foams would be nice. Also curious to know if these are re-named Louise tires
