VP-PRO Cutoff STR 1/8 Truggy Tire w/Insert (Low Flexx) (2)
This is a set of VP Pro Cutoff STR 1/8 Truggy Tires in Low Flexx (Medium/Soft) Compound. Cutoffs were designed for both loamy and or dusty tracks. The Cutoff tread pattern provides predictable, consistent traction and works very well on bumpy dusty tracks, allowing the necessary sand flow to exit the tire providing consistent traction.
Tire compounds are an extremely important variable when deciding which tire to choose. A general rule of thumb is that a harder tire will provide longer tire life with less traction, while a softer tire will provide more traction with a shorter tire life. The track condition is another extremely important variable when deciding which tire to use. Here a general rule of thumb would be to use larger pin tires on tracks with more loam and smaller pin tires on tracks that are hard packed with less loam.
Low Flexx: Low Flexx Compound is VP's medium-soft compound that will provide less pin Flexx, which helps to prevent the pin from folding over. This compound works best on very dry hard packed tracks with minimal dust, or very soft loamy dirt. The Low Flexx compound provides the longest tire life and is recommended for bashing or long A-main events.
