Pro-Line have introduced the Hex Shot 1/8 Buggy race tire, a stepped-pin tire designed to tackle loose and loamy tracks. Beefy pins are arranged in rows of hexagon-shaped pods down the centre of the tire, while the smaller outer tread is made up of connected chains of pins. The step-pin design helps support the tall pins while your buggy carves through loose dirt, providing excellent forward grip and braking stability. The Hex Shot is made with Pro-Line’s latest generation carcass shape for improved bump handling, while the large pin design gives you the longevity for main events.
Pro-Line is proud to announce another partnership, this time with one of the leading performance wheel manufacturers, Method Race Wheels. This collaboration begins with bringing their popular 305 NV Wheel style to your SCX6 rock crawler. These machined 12-spoke aluminium wheel faces bolt up to your stock Axial SCX6 bead-lock plastic wheels to create the ultimate scale rock-crawling wheel. All the details from the 1:1 Method wheel are recreated in 1/6 scale, including the 2-tone bronze & black anodised finish, debossed Method logos and black centre wheel-nut cap. The Method 305 NV wheel faces feature a 17mm Hex Pocket and match the stock SCX6 wheel offset.
The legendary Bronco has returned with its unmistakable retro-modern styling and unmatched offroad performance, and now you can deck out your Stampede, Granite or Vorteks in scale style. Pro-Line has included all the detail you would expect into the body and sticker sheet, allowing you to completely transform the look of your truck. The 1-piece Bronco body comes clear, so you can customise the look of your truck in any way you desire.
Pro-Line have presented one of the most popular 1:1 off-road project trucks to your 1/10 Rock Crawler, the 2015 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro. Pro-Line has raised the bar for scale accessory details on a polycarbonate body, including moulded black plastic front grill, headlight & taillight buckets, mirrors, door handles, and wipers. This single-piece body is made from durable, crystal-clear material that can be painted to match your favourite factory TRD Pro livery or whatever your heart desires.
JConcepts continue to expand their monster truck line-up with the release of their new Aggressor wheels as well as Fling Kings and Renegade tires. The Aggressor wheel is familiar, on the outside it looks like its successful sibling, the Tribute wheel. However, to accommodate some of today’s trucks, the Aggressor is beefed up starting with thick wall sections throughout the wheel and a reinforced 17mm hex adaptor with a ten-leg bolt pattern that locks and keys into the wheel. To fit many of today’s solid axle and independent suspension monster trucks such as the Losi LMT and Traxxas Maxx, the inside of the wheel is raised to a 3.8” bead mounting diameter. The 2.6” outer bead diameter combined with the 3.8” inner diameter makes the wheel incredibly versatile and can fit to an array of vehicles on the market while still providing that monster truck look. The wheel comes with an optional planetary cover and axle adaptor to fit directly to the popular Traxxas Maxx vehicle and is available in white, black, yellow, and silver colours.
Xray have announced that their 1/8th buggy platform, the XB8, will be joining the rest of the Slovakian’s product line in getting an update for 2022. No official details about the latest incarnation of the company’s popular buggy platform are available yet but we bring you more information about the 2022 variant once they surface.
LRP have announced the successor to the extremely popular ZR.32X Spec 4. With the latest ‘Spec 4.1’ edition, they have used the experience gained from the extensive use of its predecessor, as well as listening to all customer wishes, to make an extremely good engine even better. A new piston and conrod design offers increased power, higher mid range torque and improved lubrication. The 3 needle carburettor is thermally protected and fully adjustable and comes supplied with 9mm, 8.5mm and 7.5mm aluminium venturi inserts.
When it comes to off-road nastiness, look no further than the Gozer body for 12.3” wheelbase scale trucks and crawlers from JConcepts. The angular front and rear sections provide major clearance for crawling tires and competition-based rigs. 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 a variety of platforms. 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 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 terrain while the tires are allowed a lot of movement up past the body. Included in each body set, a clear and heavy-duty polycarbonate body, decal sheet and the paint mask for all windows.
