VP-PRO Mad Runner 1/8 Buggy Tire w/Insert (Ultra Flexx) (2)
This is a set of VP Pro Mad Runner 1/8 Buggy Tires in Ultra Flexx (Ultra Soft) Compound. With an extremely aggressive pin design, the Mad Runner tire is the ultimate forward traction tire and is very effective in digging through the dirt. The Mad Runner works extremely well on loamy tracks when the surface is wet or dry, and even work well in sand.
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.
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.
