Designed from the ground up with input from multi-time Comp Crawling World Champion Jake Wright, the Pro-Line Ibex tire is 5.5″ tall by 1.75″ wide allowing for greater agility when tackling extremely tight gates with your MOA or Super Shafty comp rig. The multi-step tread pins on the Ibex are spaced out perfectly to dig into every possible edge on the rock face to give you an advantage over the competition. The Ibex 2.2″ tire is now available in Pro-Line’s proprietary G8 compound for ultimate traction on any surface.
The future of Class 1 tire performance has arrived with Pro-Line’s 1.9″ (4.19″ OD x 1.49″ Width) Trencher tire. Inspired by Pro-Line’s popular all-terrain Trencher tread, this tire is ready for anything the terrain might throw at you. It features an extremely aggressive tread pattern with each tread block containing multiple sipes and multiple levels for incredible tread flex while still looking great on a Scale Rig. The highly detailed connected tread on the sidewall of the Trencher extends out for the next level of side-hilling performance that only slides out when you want it to. The Class 1 Trencher is available in both their legendary G8 and our Super Soft Predator compounds, providing the performance you can depend on no matter your terrain conditions.
In some conditions in off-road racing, there is no denying that a slick tire is the fastest way around the track. Throughout the racing calendar year, there are several tracks where slicks in silver compound are the go-to tire. Indoor and occasionally outdoor clay surfaces become so tacky or free of dust and debris that a total slick tire is an advantage. For years drivers have sanded, ground and hand sculpted tires in search of that elusive slick carcass for racing, now, JConcepts has the Smoothie 2. Released as a 2.2” bead mounting diameter, the JConcepts Smoothie 2 mount straight to the latest generation wheels for that all important reactive feel. The carefully profiled slightly thickened tire carcass rolls through the turns with efficiency while the maximum smooth surface area grips the specialty surfaces like no other. The Smoothies include Dirt-Tech inserts which have made an immediate presence on the racing scene since their release. The identifiable grey colour with custom sculpted features, are blended into the insert material which provide racers a durable option capable of being used in medium to extremely high-traction conditions.
JConcepts together with Ryan Maifield and ace mechanic Mike Truhe had a goal before the ROAR Fuel Nationals of creating a rock guard capable of resisting larger debris from getting into the drivetrain on the MBX8 line of vehicles. An ultra-thin carbon fibre plate has been created to position over the rear driveshaft and diff outdrive to block items from entering from the top of the vehicle. Another small addition from JConcepts and RM2 can help save a truck body nosepiece from abuse. The detailed design of the light-weight carbon fibre nose-piece washer works in conjunction with the JConcepts F2 body and helps support across the entire section of the mounting flange area. Included hardware makes assembly and fit a breeze and once completed, looks factory and as custom as it gets.
For the Tekno EB48 2.0 and NB48 2.0 series, Exotek have released a number of new aluminium options. The new parts include heavy duty 7075 alloy steering spindles, alloy rear hubs and bell crank set for more consistent suspension performance and handling. Extra durable for high powered applications and polished and anodised in glossy Tekno team colours for that factory look.
Pro-Line have released these Dumont 5.7″ tires that have been designed from the ground up for your X-Maxx and Kraton 8S to sling sand and snow further than ever before and look good doing it. The Dumont 5.7″ tire uses the latest in paddle tread technology with large offset V-shaped paddles for maximum roosting power. Pro-Line P-L logos have been embedded into the tire carcass giving it the style that you have come to expect from Pro-Line. The Dumont Paddle tire gets its name from the incredible Dumont Sand Dunes in California, but these paddle tires are equally at home shredding your local snowfield in the winter. The Raid 5.7″ Black Wheel features a 24mm hex with the standard 1/5 scale through-hole to fit most 1/5 scale vehicles and includes machined aluminium wheel washers to fit onto the popular X-Maxx platform. Inspired by popular full-size off-road wheels, the Raid 5.7″ wheel is extremely tough and has the bold style to match. The Dumont Paddle tires are glued to the big diameter Raid wheel for the ultimate in lightweight performance.
Pro-Line have introduced the fully Licensed 2015 Chevy Silverado Pre-Runner clear body for 12.3″ wheelbase crawlers. They’ve taken the popular modern Silverado style and added pre-runner, desert truck style fenders to mimic a fiberglass front clip and give your crawler a super unique stance. It features an extended cab with a short bed and includes optional headlight and taillight buckets for added scale realism. This body is perfect on any 12.3″ Crawler such as the SCX10-II or SCX10-III.
JConcepts is spot on with the release of this optional 3.0mm carbon fibre rear shock tower for the Associated RC10T2. The stock vehicle comes standard with a fiber glass unit which carries all the original geometry, however it lacks the pizzazz, strength and appearance that carbon fibre can provide.
