Hey there Big Squid crew,
I just wanted to thank you for the review on the Pro-MT. I’ve never owned a 2WD RC and had been eying the Proline Pro 2 SCB but, I pre ordered one of these babies. I wanted something low maintenance to have fun with perhaps take to the local track. I know a monster truck isn’t going to be the best track vehicle but it will be good as long as I’m smiling away as I drive over those pesky short course trucks then it will be a winner. Oh did I say over? I meant around… Yeah around. I was just curious if you guys had run it at all with a Spektrum using the AVC tech I would love to know how it helped/hindered the truck. As far as the other electronics go basically the same set up you guys were running Savox 1270tg, 3800kv castle motor, going to use a Sidewinder 3 waterproof addition.
Thanks again for the great website,
Cubby- Welcome to the big time Sam, don’t forget to shoot us your snail mail for the hook up on a BSRC sticker pack.
Have we run AVC in the Pro-Line PRO-MT yet? No, but we are doing a whole series on AVC and the PRO-MT will be the first truck it gets installed in. However, we have a bunch of time in with AVC in other vehicles, if you do a lot of loose surface driving you should be able to tweak the AVC to make the PRO-MT incredibly dialed.
As far as the PRO-MT on track. Nope, it’s not as dialed as lower, race style vehicles, but it seriously surprises you how well it handles. For example, we have put in a ton of laps with the PRO-MT on local outdoor 8th scale tracks, and last weekend we got in a bunch of time at the Leisure Hours damp/high-bite indoor track. Even with the stock Trenchers the PRO-MT was freak’n hauling. It easily made all the jumps and was incredibly easy to drive fast. I can’t wait to try one out with dedicated race tires, and it would really be something if the PRO-MT put some of the fun back into local racing.
