Pro-Line Positron VTR 4.0 & Pyramid 2WD tyres

Pro-Line have introduced two new competition off-road tyres in the form of the Positron VTR 4.0” 1/8th truck and Pyramid 2.2” 2WD buggy front tyre. Starting with the Positron, the tyre was designed from the ground up with an all-new and futuristic directional tread design for improved grip and corner speed on indoor clay tracks. The tread design pays homage to the Electron and Ion tyre before it with the two centre pins boxed in by connected bars for a familiar Pro-Line signature look. From there the connected bars shoot off at angles that have been specifically designed to provide maximum forward bite combined with exceptional corner speed and durability. The Positron is directional, which adds another tuning option for the racers always looking for that extra edge since it will perform differently depending on which direction it is run. The tyre comes including blue closed cell inserts and in super soft M4 or MC clay compounds.

Also new is the Pyramid buggy 2WD front tyre. The tread features many large pyramid shaped pins with the knife edge pointed front to back and side to side for maximum grip that stay sharp even as they wear down. The carcass shape has been optimised for the demands of astro turf racing, which is smaller and more narrow than standard dirt tyres for improved agility. The Pyramid comes in soft Z4 and medium Z3 carpet compounds for both cold and hot weather conditions.
