Pro-Line BlockBuster body & Pro-2 aluminium options

Pro-Line BlockBuster body & Pro-2 aluminium options

Pro-Line introduce the BlockBuster bodyshell as well as aluminium option parts for the Pro-2 truck. Starting with the body, the BlockBuster is specifically designed for creating movies and inboard off-road footage by mounting “action” video cameras such as the GoPro inside. Complete with a dash for realistic first person camera shots, the body is perfect for creating action packed sequences. It is made out of extra thick lexan with moulded-in strengthening ribs to provide a stable camera mount for non-shaky footage. The sides of the body extend past the top of the camera for protection against roll-overs while the outside looks tough and ready with the Desert Militia style appearance.

Pro-Line Type-R clear bodyshells

Pro-Line Type-R clear bodyshells

Pro-Line introduce the Type-R bodyshells for the Hot Bodies D413 and D812 buggies. The Type-R came from the mind of Pro-Line team driver Ty Tessmann with a unique mid-cab look and undercut side pods that break away from all of the recent cab forward trends. The Type-R body for the D413 fits perfectly around the triangulated shock towers of Hot Bodies’ latest 4WD electric buggy and features kick up in the rear for balanced front to rear down force. Pro-Line’s new Type-R body style is a single piece body unlike the stock 3-piece screw together unit, which is difficult to paint and mount. The Type-R for the D812 is the same exact one that Ty used to dominate the 2014 Nitro Challenge. Both the 1/10th and 1/8th body come clear, including window masks and decal sheet.

Pro-Line Transistor & Suburbs VTR tyres

Pro-Line Transistor & Suburbs VTR tyres

Pro-Line introduce new VTR series 1/10th buggy tyres in the form of the Transistor VTR and Suburbs VTR. Starting with the Transistor the tyre is available as 2WD and 4WD front tyre and designed to offer good, consistent steering in a variety of conditions thanks to the dots and bars design. The Suburbs rear tyre is already known for its performance on indoor clay and outdoor blue groove surfaces and now comes also as VTR variant. The VTR tyres and wheels introduce the horizontal mounting style common in 1:8 Nitro and bring it to the precision environment of the 1:10 racing scene, resulting in the lightest tyre/wheel package possible. All three tyres are available in X2 medium, M4 super soft and MC clay compounds. The VTR tyre line is rounded out by the new Velocity VTR 2.4″ hex wheels for buggies such as the TLR 22, RB5 and RB6, B4.1/2 and the B44.1/2. The rims are available in fluorescent yellow and standard white.

MIP B5 Pucks bi-metal R-CVD drive system

MIP B5 Pucks bi-metal R-CVD drive system

Based on their own Pucks drive systems MIP now introduce the new bi-metal R-CVD driveshaft set for the Team Associated B5 and B5M. This all-new design features a keyed joint made out of hardened alloy steel that connects to 7075 hard anodised aluminium bones. This feature allows to lighten up the drivetrain without sacrificing the durability that steel components offer. The R-CVD design also helps to keep costs low while 7075 hard anodised aluminium outdrives further reduce the rotational mass of the drivetrain. The set is designed to work with the B5 kit’s wheel axles and differential parts.
