Screws directly onto the pull-out spouts found on VP Racing Fuels’ 5-Gallon pails, making the transfer of liquids much easier. The ¼” vent tube allows air to ow in to the bottom of the container releasing the internal pressure resulting in a smooth and quick pour.
NOTE: VP Power Spouts are designed to ONLY fit VP Racing Fuels 5 Gallon pails, not 5-Gallon Motorsport or Sportsman’s Container


VP offers a variety of high quality funnels and filters

Specifically formulated for all R/C vehicles including: off-road buggies, trucks, helicopters, planes, on-road cars and more!


Specifically formulated for dirt bikes, ATVs, mountain bikes, BMX, utility vehicles and more!


Concentrated for extremely dirty, muddy and/or large applications such as off-road vehicles or dirt track cars, as well as to refill Moto or R/C spray bottles when diluted with water.



VP’s Lane Choice™ Traction Compound System is the result of several years of intense and detailed R&D.  While other manufacturers of adhesives have been standing pat with 20-year old technology, Lane Choice represents the most advanced technology in traction.VP’s system includes LC7, LC5 and Starting Line Resin (SLR), which work together to ensure your track will deliver optimum performance in any weather conditions. VP’s top performing compound is LC7, which is effective across the widest range of temperatures of any compound on the market. It delivers optimum performance with track temperatures from 30°-150° F.

LC5 is VP’s version of the original formula for the old “VHT” traction compound. It’s designed to be cut with methanol so a track can tailor it to its needs. A track doesn’t have to change its prep procedure when changing to LC5 from its previous traction compound. LC5 will deliver the same or better performance at a much better price.

The number of tracks using VP’s system across the U.S. is growing each week for good reason—VP’s traction compounds are easier to apply than other compounds, they cost less and you’ll get better performance!

More consistency - Because of its higher viscosity and overall toughness, Lane Choice traction compound performs much more consistently across a wider range of temperatures. Differences in a car’s performance between daytime and night are substantially reduced, and Lane Choice is unaffected by humidity.

Better out of groove performance - Cars can get out of the groove and still get down the track without having to shut down.

Better starting line toughness - Tracks get fewer bald spots and they’re less severe. Lane Choice doesn’t ball up or roll over onto itself. As a result, cars routinely launch harder and tracks become faster.

Easier to apply - Lane Choice is packaged ready-to-spray. It requires no mixing, no mess and there’s no need to remember mix ratios. It requires use of Polytetrauoroethylene (PTFE) seals in spray equipment and may be diluted with methanol.

More cost-effective - Lane Choice actually achieves better results than competing traction products while requiring application of less compoundand requires no purchase of methanol for mixing.


VP’s highly regarded Lane Choice 5 traction compound is now available in 1-Gallon containers.  LC5 improves track performance in all weather conditions, maximizing traction for high performance cars regardless of weight or horsepower.  It works effectively on all hard surfaces and the new 1GL container now makes application more convenient.

Shouldn’t you consider trying the most advanced technology in traction to see how it can improve your track?

stay-wetStayWet track conditioner was developed through extensive R&D at dirt tracks of all types to provide for better racing and a better fan experience.

Better Racing
• Improves track performance
• Widens racing lines
• Prevents holes & ruts
• Improves soil adhesion

Better Fan Experience
• Improves visibility for fans and racers
• Reduces dust-related breathing problems

StayWet enhances dirt’s ability to hold moisture longer while allowing water to penetrate more deeply. It also enhances soil’s bonding properties providing for greater compaction. This reduces dust and in many cases eliminates it altogether.

Using special adhesion modifiers, StayWet improves grip on the track surface from bottom to top. Tracks using StayWet have sprayed or misted the high side to the middle and achieved smooth surfaces and greater traction over a wider racing surface.

StayWet is a water based biodegradable material that is nontoxic and causes no harm to ground water. By reducing dust, StayWet provides a better racing experience for fans and drivers alike.

Dust Deterrent™

dust-deterrent-formulated-by-vpVP Dust Deterrent is specially formulated for commercial applications to control dust and keep soil packed to enhance the mobility of heavy equipment. It saves money, is easy to apply and improves the working environment of any job site. Dust Deterrent works effectively on sand, gravel, loamy surfaces and all soil types.

Dust Deterrent penetrates soils, making the soil hydrophilic requiring less water usage
• Draws moisture from the air, helping retain more moisture at the surface
• Beyond adding moisture, it ionizes the dirt surface for better compaction
• When applied slowly and evenly, serves for up to 24 hours with heavy vehicle traffic

dust-deterrentSAVES MONEY
Dust Deterrent reduces water volume and maintenance costs
• Up to 33% less water needed throughout the day
• Reduces level of dust that clogs filters, bearings and machinery
• Reduces the cost of cleaning vehicles, equipment, property and job sites
• Non-corrosive – won’t harm metal parts
• Can be added to mist sprayers for rock quarries, coal, mica, kaolin and many others

Dust Deterrent is biodegradable and non-hazardous
