round3

ROUND 3 of the Duratrax 400 Monster Tire Giveaway is on!

We just updated the Official Giveaway Page, so here is how Round 3 is going to work! We know some of you aren’t Facebook fans, so none of that stuff this time. To Enter, all you need to do is leave a comment on this post telling us why you want to win a new set of Duratrax Tires. You will need to leave us a legit email address, because that’s how we will contact you when we choose the winners. The winners are chosen at random, so no pressure on the comment. No need to write us a giant story, just a sentence or two on why you want a set, and maybe what you are going to put them on. Feel free to comment in the form of a poem or song, just to keep things interesting, but it won’t help your chances of winning.

Keep in mind, you can NOT win more than once!

If you didn’t score in the First Round or Second Round, here is another chance!

Don’t forget we still have that MONSTER of a Grand Prize! And It’s going to come with a new set of Duratrax Tires.. that’s all we are saying for now.

Open to US residents only! Sorry guys, you must be in on of the 50 states of the USA to participate this time.

Round 3 Entry deadline: Midnight, CST September 22nd 2013. Winners will be posted Monday, September 23rd.

Keep it simple, short and CLEAN please. Ready… GO!

duratrax_monster_giveaway

Just a heads up, the first week of entries ends tonight! (Sunday 9/8/2013) We will pick the winners of the first 100 tires which will be posted on Monday.

Then Tuesday we will give you the instructions for the next way to sign up and win the next group of tires!

It’s still hard to believe Duratrax hooked us up with 400 tires!

Oh yea, and we mentioned at the end of the 4 weeks there would be a GRAND PRIZE! Well, we haven’t mentioned what that prize is quite yet. A hint? Sure.. lets just say it’s a monster of a prize to match the Monster Tire Giveaway! :)

So there is still some time! Ready to Enter? Click here to head over to the OFFICIAL DURATRAX 400 GIVEAWAY PAGE.

duratrax_monster_giveaway

Yep, you are reading that correctly! With the help of our friends at Duratrax, we are giving away 400 tires. That’s 100 complete sets of four!

This is easily the biggest giveaway we have ever done, and it does not end there, because over the next few weeks we will be giving hints towards a GRAND PRIZE! As if 400 tires isn’t grand enough!

We are giving away are the newest Duratrax tires that we have been talking about HERE (1/10 Monster Truck) and HERE (1/10 Stadium Truck).

Duratrax Six Pack ST Tires_00006

Did you see our reveal of the Duratrax Stadium Truck Tires? Just like the Monster Truck Tires we are bringing you some pictures of the tires in action. We have been using these for a while now, on all sorts of vehicles, and thought we’d post up a few shots. We have been running the Bandito ST, Pistol ST, Picket ST and Six Pack ST on a bunch of stuff. From Traxxas Jato and Rustler to our Axial EXO!

If you need more information you can go here for pricing, sizes and details.

Enjoy the pics!

We first broke the news about the new Duratrax Monster Truck Tires, and now it’s time to do the same with the new line of Duratrax Stadium Truck Tires!

Just like their Monster Truck line, the Duratrax Performance Stadium Truck Tires come pre-mounted and glued to 2.8″ rims, complete with foam inserts. The rims will be available in black or chrome with contrasting screws.

We have had the opportunity to be driving/testing these for a while now. We have bolted them onto all sorts of vehicles during our test time, and dishing out our normal amount of bashing abuse.

The soft C2 compound has provided excellent traction on all sorts of terrain, and Duratrax has enough tread patterns to help you find your ideal match.

They come ready to go for most 1/10 scale Traxxas, HPI and ARRMA 2WD and 4WD vehicles like the Rustler, Jato, Vorteks, and Firestorm, as well as many others.

They should be available to order, and in stock in your local hobby shops mid September. As far as we know, we have been the only ones privileged to be running these.

Here are the details for ordering when they come out. Notice the colors for rims, Chrome, Black, and the offsets as well as Front and Rear. Tread Patterns are Bandito, Picket, Pistol, and Six Pack.
