Modelix Racing have introduced the new Procircuit V2 series of 1/8th scale buggy tyres that will include updated variants of the popular H-Block, Hot Dice, Addictive and Claymore tyres. The V2 tyres will provide increased traction, side bite and durability thanks to new, softer and more elastic compounds. The V2 series tyres will come in C1 Super Soft (white), C2 Soft (yellow), C3 Medium (orange) and C4 Hard (blue) rubber compounds while the tyre carcass has also been modified and reinforced by adding an inner cross-shaped substructure that adds to the longitudinal rips, helping the wheel, insert and tyre work together in an optimised fashion to provide maximum stability when accelerating as well as in fast corners. The V2 series also features a new insert to make maximum use of the new reinforced structure while improving overall performance with more consistent handling over bumps, effortless jumping and an easy to drive feeling. Lastly the tread patterns have also been revised in order to improve performance while the new high precision injection moulds not only provide a nice glossy surface, but also a super precise and nice finish to all V2 series tyres.
