Pro-Line Trifecta wing & off-road car stands

Pro-Line Trifecta wing & off-road car stands

Pro-Line have more off-road related accessories to offer in the form of the Trifecta 1/8th rear wing and car stands for buggies and trucks. Starting with the wing, the part was first seen at this year’s ROAR Fuel Offroad Nationals and it is designed to greatly improve rear traction and high-speed stability. Sculptured in an aggressive, futuristic design with large centre fins the wing can be equipped with your choice of a small or large wickerbill to fine-tune the performance. Underneath the main plate of the wing there are three dimples that hang down on each side creating a “golf ball aerodynamic effect” which increases low speed down force and reduces high speed drag. Suitable for 1/8th buggies and trucks the wing is available in yellow, black or white colour.

ROAR to ban 1/8th style 1/10th buggy tyres

2_ROAR bans 1/8th style 1/10th buggy tyres

U.S. RC car governing body ROAR have announced the ban of the latest breed of 1/10th buggy wheels and tyres such as AKA’s Evo and Pro-Line’s VTR range for ROAR sanctioned events in 2014. It is understood that said wheels and tyres, that adapt the tyre bead design of 1/8th buggy wheels, do not meet with the wheel and tyre dimensions allowed by the ROAR as the AKA Evo and Pro-Line VTR are in fact 2.4 inch offerings while the ROAR and virtually every other governing body only allows 2.2 inch wheels and tyres. Even the use of so called adapter kits are disallowed as they are seen as (illegal) modification to the wheel. The current ban so far only affects 2014 events and there is a chance that the new style wheels and tyres will be allowed to use from 2015 on.
