This is a pair of VP Pro Axman 1/8 Buggy Tyres mounted on Yellow dish wheels in Medium Flexx Compound.
The Axman tire works extremely well on hard packed to medium loose conditions and traditional tracks with loose dirt. The larger lugs allow the tire to dig deep for maximum traction. The centre bars give good forward bite and when use on the rear allow the car to rotate better in turns.
Forward Traction: 8
Side Bite: 8
Tire Wear: 8
Tire Compounds by VP Pro USA
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 yet 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 our medium compound that will provide less pin Flexx which deters 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 has the longest tire life and is recommended for bashing or long A-main events.
Medium Flexx: Medium Flexx Compound is our most popular compound which works on nearly all off-road racing surfaces. The medium Flexx compound is a soft compound which was designed to provide maximum traction without compromising early tire wear. The medium Flexx compound will feel softer than most “medium” labeled compound tires produced by other companies, but will last much longer.
Ultra Flexx: The Ultra Flexx Compound is our softest compound which provides maximum traction on nearly all off-road surfaces, especially hard packed surfaces dry or damp. The super soft Ultra Flexx Compound works great in bumpy conditions as the Ultra Flexx pins will not catch the ruts under impact. Most Pro racers use the Ultra Flexx compounds during qualifying runs for maximum performance.
