Installing a set (3) of hotrails. Should I keep the original 250k pots or replace them with 500k since these are essentially humbuckers. Did a search, sorry if this has been covered.

well buy one 500k, that will at least give you a nice boost for the bridge, and then i'd try both a 500 and a 250 on the bridge, mid and neck to see what you get? although as i guess you're installnig into a strat, you mgiht not have enough room for another voluem if you wanna keep the tone pots too...in which case you coudl remove one tone and have all threee on one, or try and find a 250k dual concentric pot for the tone knobs (not sure if these exist :s)

It is a strat. I am keeping the VTT config. I guess I'll just stay with the 250k pots. Duncan doesn't mention otherwise.
