The warm-up race for the Fall Brawl at Badlands was held this past weekend. Austin Woodyard had a good day in Nitro Truggy as he not only took the TQ but he also walked away with the win in the A-main final. Jake Stikeleather came in 2nd from Colin Hanna 3rd.
Pro-Line introduce two new pre-painted body shells and pre-mounted Trencher X SC tires. Starting with the bodies, available soon are the original Flo-Tek and the Flo-Tek Ford F150 body shell. They are designed to fit most of today’s 2WD and 4WD SC trucks and come handpainted, partially pre-cut and pre-stickered. The bodies are hand-painted and genuine Pro-Line shells separating them from the many screen-printed plastic shells on the market. Also new are pre-mounted M2 medium compound Trencher X SC tires on black Renegade wheels. They will become available for a wide range of trucks such as the Traxxas Slash 2WD and 4×4, the TLR Ten-SCTE, AE SC10 4×4, and HPI Blitz.
Pro-Line Racing introduce a load of new option parts for the Traxxas Slash 2WD truck and PL’s own performance transmission upgrade. Available soon is a front hub kit, hard anodised pivot balls and rod ends as well as a hinge pin brace, anti-squat plates, spur gears and motor screws. Starting with the hub kit the parts beef-up the front suspension, offer additional camber link holes for better adjustability and are held in place using threaded rods and lock nuts for added security. The hard anodised aluminium pivot balls and special rod ends are designed to provide a butter-smooth suspension movement and reduce the weight over the stock parts for better suspension performance. The hard anodised hinge pin brace makes for a cooler looking ride and adds strength to the front end of the truck. The parts comes anodised grey and with laser-etched logo. Also new is the anti-squat block set for the use with the Performance Transmission. The set includes 2 degrees, 4 degrees and 5 degrees parts to add to the 3 degrees item that comes with the transmission kit. Last but not least come special 78T and 82T spur gears to make for a perfect gear ration setup and heavy duty motor washers and screws for a rock solid mounted motor.
Pro-Line have released a number of new items for the Slash 2wd. First up is the all-new race-inspired front bumper, brace and bulkhead, the former featuring Pro-Line’s unique ‘Flex Mount’ brace that absorbs all impacts rather than transferring them into your Truck and potentially damaging vital components. The two vertically mounted screws that fasten the Bumper to the Brace act as pivot points for the Brace to rotate around allowing the Pro-2 Bumpers to bend but not break. Next up is the Pro-2 ProTrac Axle kit with ProTrac Suspension Kit. The all steel construction of the shafts, outdrive, axles and pins provide maximum durability and can handle all the power your motor can muster. Pro-Line includes super Lightweight Outdrives in the Pro-2 Axle kit to improve acceleration by lowering rotating mass and also includes Axle Snap Rings that eliminate drive pins from ever falling out. Finally Pro-Line have new blue anodized aluminium nuts which have deep serrations that dig into the wheel and provide a secure hold against the rigors of Racing and Bashing.
It is time to man up and go real with Pro-Line’s new True Scale Ford F-150 Raptor SVT truck body for Short Course trucks. Pro-Line now gives you the option to convert your Slash and SC10 short course truck into a True Scale lifted truck. Requires Pro-Line extended body mounts.
Pro-Line have made their ION SC tires available in 3 new compounds in addition to their Clay tire released previously. Now available in soft, super soft and blue groove, the unique molecular structure tread design provides unbelievable forward and side traction not yet achieved in any indoor race tire to date. Even with the super-low tread height, maximum wear is reached by the alternating dual center lugs. The ION is also extremely easy to drive due to the super-smooth side tread that flows organically out of the tire sidewall. PL have also introduced a MX ‘Blue Groove’ compound version of their Suburbs 2.0 SC tire.
The Pro-Line Ion SC indoor clay tire was designed from the ground-up and requires zero break-in tine. The unique molecular structure tread design provides forward and side traction and with the super-low tread height, maximum wear is reached by the alternating dual center lugs. The ION is also extremely easy to drive due to the super-smooth side tread that flows organically out of the tire sidewall. The new tire already proved its performance by taking the ROAR National Championship in Pro-2 SC in the hands of Ryan Cavalieri.
Pro-Line introduce the Pro-2 LCG chassis kit for the Slash 2WD truck. The kit contains a tough, hard anodised 7075 aluminium chassis plate that allows for adjustable weight bias, durable servo mounts and steering posts as well as jet fighter inspired side pods and bumpers for that overall racy look. The chassis design does away with the stock ‘channel’ and significantly lowers the centre of gravity for improved on track performance.
