Pro-Line 1.9″ Trencher & 1.55″ Super Swamper tires

Two new additions from Pro-Line to their crawler range with the release of the 1.9″ Trencher crawler tire and Super Swamper tires for 1.55″ crawler wheels. The Trencher crawler tires are inspired by their very popular all-terrain Trencher tread, featuring 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 new Super Swamper tire is a first ever tire for 1.55″ size wheels from Pro-Line. With ‘almost scale’ not being acceptable and access to Interco’s design data, Pro-Line’s engineering staff has reproduced the original Super Swamper in a scale configuration matched by none. The new 3.85″ tall by 1.45″ wide Class 0 tire is perfect for those ultra-scale 1.55″ wheel rigs begging for matching scale tires combined with unmatched rock crawling performance.

Pro-Line Carbine 1.9″ dually wheels

Pro-Line have introduced their new Carbine 1.9″ black plastic internal bead-loc dually wheels. This pair of dually wheels will go perfectly with your next military-style or extreme off-road build and will fit 4 standard 1.9″ tires, 2 tires per wheel. The best part of the Carbine is the modular wheel design that allows it to be used as a single tire wheel, dual tire wheel, or you can keep adding as many tires as you want with the addition of more Carbine wheels. The face of the wheel features 20 small holes with moulded-in bead-loc detail for a tough military look and the included scale wheel nut cover attaches with two screws and completes the rugged appearance. The set includes two optional 12mm hex offsets to fit both straight axles and portal axles and to give you the option for a narrow or wide offset.

JConcepts Gozer monster truck body

When it comes to monster truck nastiness, look no further than the JConcepts Gozer body for 12 to 13” wheelbase monster trucks. The angular front and rear sections provide major clearance for big racing tires such as the JConcepts Renegades. The nature of the 4-door body has a lot of purpose in mind and with a little nip here and a tuck there, the Gozer sits down on platforms such as the Axial SMT10 and similar sized and wheelbase trucks. A large arched front wheel-well dead-ends at the grille section and once covered with included decal, looks quite bossy and stares you down like a piece of heavy-equipment. The high-roof design with crisp body lines, front vent and recessed bed are incorporated to provide durability to a freestyle bruising machine. Large format windows in the dual cab design provide plenty of rise and clearance for an assortment of body combinations. Large swooping rear wheel wells allow suspension travel to soak up the bumps while the tires are allowed a lot of movement up into the body. Included in each body set, a clear and heavy-duty polycarbonate body, decal sheet and the paint mask for all windows.
