VP-PRO Blade Evo 1/8 Buggy Tire w/Closed Cell Insert (Ultra Flexx) (2)
This is a set of two VP Pro Blade Evo 1/8 Buggy Tires, in Ultra Flexx (Ultra Soft) compound, with included Closed Cell Inserts. The Blade is a triple tier small pin style tire that was designed to survive long main events. The 3 levels of pins provides maximum corner speed and great traction, especially on uneven surfaces. The small top pin provides traction on dusty & hard packed dirt, as well as soft loamy dirt, while the 2nd level pins provide traction and stability on hard packed dirt. The lower level pin provides stability and reduces pin flex allowing for maximum corner speed. The Blades have the best overall traction, corner speed, and tread life of all the VP-Pro tires and work best on blue grove tracks with high traction and high wear.
Flexible Belt Technology: As engines become more powerful and gear ratios are improved, 1/8 scale cars are reaching higher top speeds than ever before. Its important that your tires transfer that power to the racing surface efficiently. The Evo tire line features VP-Pro's "flexible belt technology" that uses supporting inner ribs to strengthen the sidewall of the tire, reducing sidewall flex. This allows the tire to remain flatter during acceleration, which means regardless of whether you are accelerating or cornering the tire will have maximum contact with the track surface, providing increased stability, faster cornering response and improved wear characteristics.
Ultra Flexx: The Ultra Flexx Compound is VP's ultra-soft compound which provides maximum traction on nearly all off-road surfaces, especially hard packed surfaces, dry or damp. Ultra Flexx Compound is the softest compound tire in VP's lineup and works great in bumpy conditions as the Ultra Flexx pins will not catch ruts under impact. VP team drivers use the Ultra Flexx compounds during qualifying runs for maximum performance.
