Pro-Line Flat Iron XL 2.2" tyres & new rims

New from Pro-Line comes the Flat Iron XL 2.2″ G8 rock terrain tyre as well as two new 2.2″ bead-loc wheels.

The Flat Iron tread pattern combines scale realism and all out rock climbing performance as the large lug pattern combined with siping allows the tyre to have the perfect amount of flex under throttle acceleration. Included with the pair of tyres come two memory foam inserts.

Pro-Line pre-cut Trifecta wing & roll-up pit mat

Pro-Line pre-cut Trifecta wing & roll-up pit mat

Pro-Line have a pre-cut Trifecta Lexan wing and a roll-up pit mat available soon. From the mind of World Champion and Pro-Line team driver Ty Tessmann, the 1/8th Trifecta Lexan wing brings a huge amount of weight savings to the highest part of the buggy and massively lowers your car’s centre of gravity. This results in faster corner speeds and reduces the chance of traction rolling when faced with high-bite track conditions. The 1:8 Trifecta Lexan wing design follows the tradition set by the 1/10th buggy wing and features three strengthening ribs and three dimples that hang down on each side creating a “golf ball aerodynamic effect” under the wing for added down force and reduced high speed drag. The set included the pre-cut wing and the centre fin piece as well as two different size wickerbills to tune the performance and downforce.

Reedy 6000mAh 70C 2S competition LiPo battery

Reedy 6000mAh 70C 2S competition LiPo battery

Reedy’s new 6000mAh 70C competition LiPo battery is intended primarily for touring cars where capacity can be sacrificed in exchange for lighter weight and increased power output. Lighter weight allows for greater flexibility when adjusting weight distribution while maintaining the correct minimum overall weight. The pack offers increased power output thanks to a high average discharge voltage and low internal resistance which makes the battery interesting for Stock racers while Modified racers will enjoy the added power as well. The battery meets ROAR, EFRA, BRCA and IFMAR specs and it comes with 4mm socket connectors to keep the power-robbing resistance to a minimum.
