PL Slayer Flo-Tek, Square Fuzzies & 1:5 Blockades

Pro-Line have released the Flo-Tek designed specifically for your Traxxas Slayer Pro. The Flo-Tek was the first SC body specifically designed to minimize the short-course body parachute effect. Featuring futuristic styling coupled with large vent holes that allow air to flow through eliminating aerodynamic drag. The locations and size of the vents were designed to maximize air flow through the body while keeping the aggressive and high-tech look. The all new and improved Square Fuzzie is now available for your SC Truck and features countless square micro-pins laid out in a traction inducing grid pattern that will stick to the track like Velcro. The long center bars provide tons of forward bite and improved wear over the Original and are ideal for any indoor/outdoor hard-packed dirt track where bar-type tires are not getting the job done.

HPI Super 5SC Flux RTR

The Savage drivetrain is super flexible, allowing HPI monster trucks to reach legendary levels of durability and performance! Because of this extreme toughness, HPI designers have Super-sized the Savage to 1/5th scale, taking the Savage to a new dimension. The Super 5SC Flux takes the powerful Flux Tork 2200KV motor and Blur speedo from the amazing Savage Flux HP for truly impressive top speeds and plenty of wheel-spinning fun. The Super 5SC Flux is lighter than the Baja 5SC, so the power of the Flux Tork is a perfect match. With specialized parts to fit the Baja 5SC body, bumpers and wheels, from the outside the Super 5SC Flux looks just like its fuel-breathing stablemate. It’s only when you switch it on and drive away that its secret is revealed!
