Pro-Line have released a sneak peek of their new Slash 4×4 ProTrac kit. Near completion the kit will consist of new suspension arms and turnbuckles to widen the geometry of the truck for smoother handling. The arms have multiple mounting locations for suspension tuning and the wheels, which will most likely be included, will be the popular ProTrac negative offset matching other popular SC trucks such as SC10 and Losi. The team is really excited as the Prototype truck has performed very well in testing at a variety of tracks. We will have more information when the kit is released.
New from OFNA for their SCRT10 short course truck is this pivot ball conversion kit. Making the car more aggressive yet smooth in the corners it offers other tuning advantages to further increase performance including adjustable track width, caster, camber, toe and kick up. Plus with the added strength means your SCRT can drive and jump like a 1/8th scale buggy. Chrome pillow balls react smoothly and respond well into the bumpy sections and turn tight and solid into hairpin turns. The kit includes everything you need to convert your standard truck.
Pro-Line are reporting that their team driver Travis Amezcua has been working with the development team doing some short course testing. To do so, Pro-Line has outfitted Travis with a ProTrac suspension Slash and the goal is for Travis to provide users of the ProTrac suspension kit and Power Stroke shocks, car set-ups derived from Travis’s hands on testing. Travis hit his first club race with his Slash a Thunder Alley last night where he proceeded to TQ and win the main event. This was Travis’s first chance to run the new Hole-Shot SC, which provided excellent performance according to Travis.
