The future of SCX24 tire performance has arrived with Pro-Line’s all-new pre-mounted Hyrax 1.0″ tires. Just like Pro-Line’s 1:10 size Hyrax tires, these mini tires are designed to provide maximum grip on whatever terrain your SCX24 attempts to tackle. The Hyrax features an aggressive and open tread pattern with each tread block containing Sipes for additional tread flex. The highly detailed connected tread on the sidewall of the Hyrax extends out for unmatched side-hilling performance. The Hyrax also features futuristic stepped tread blocks that create even more forward gripping edges that dig into slick rock like no other mini tire produced to date. The Hyrax 1.0″ tires are made from a super soft compound to help your SCX24 climb to new heights and the tires are supported with soft foam inserts. The Hyrax 1.0″ tires come in at an overall height of 2.10″ and a width of 0.75″. The Hyrax 1.0″ tire comes conveniently pre-mounted on Mini Impulse Black Internal Bead-Loc 1.0″ plastic 7mm hex wheels.
The long-awaited successor to the almighty Badlands MX43 is finally here, meet Pro-Line’s new and improved Badlands MX57. Everything that you know and love about the original has been carried over to the MX57 including the crazy aggressive tread combined with the same long-lasting compound, but it’s now nearly 20% lighter thanks to the Raid 5.7″ glue up wheel. Pro-Line Badlands tires are known for having a sweet Motocross inspired tread and the all-new Badlands MX57 tires kick that up a notch with a Bigger and Bolder knobby tread that matches modern MX tire design. These tires have been developed from the ground up for extreme punishment with an ultra-durable compound that prevents tire ballooning even at high speeds. 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 like the Kraton 8S 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 Badlands MX57 tires are glued to the big diameter Raid wheel for the ultimate in lightweight, all-terrain performance.
The FSEARA returned to Florida’s famous backyard nitro track Nugget Ranch Raceway for the 2nd round of the series. With a successful first round last month, this is now the 2nd largest entry for the series with a total of 111 entries which is a record for this location. The big and high speed layout pushed average lap times close to 20 second per lap. It’s one of the biggest tracks they go to for this series. The highlight of the battle for the weekend was for sure in 17.5 TC. For sure it was intense from the qualifier till the main. Round 1 TQ went to an up and coming youngster Lazaro Alonzo Jr. Only been driving EP touring for a few months coming from Nitro racing, he was on his A game for pace this weekend. Competition was tight and the round 2 TQ goes to the long time racing veteran Jimmy Morris. For anyone who has been watching the series, Jimmy has been a long time racer and with this tough competitive field this is the first TQ Jimmy was able to achieve after all these years. Congrats.
