For you scale guys, check this out!
We just got a sneak peak of the new Pro-Line RAM 1500 body! The way the bed is created so you can throw a spare tire back there is pretty coo looking. It’s going to come with some great scale looking stickers, and has those huge fenders to look more like the full size crawler stuff.
We found a part number 3434-00, and at the moment it’s only in clear.
We don’t have an official price yet, and it’s not up on the PL website yet, but expect it up there in a few days. Till then you can check out their other scale/crawler bodies Right Here on Pro-Line’s official website.

Closed cell tire inserts have a number of advantages over old school foam. They don’t soak up as much water in wet conditions, they last a lot longer, and they are firmer, resulting in better handling.
Pro-Line is bringing high tech closed cell inserts to the Traxxas 2.8 crowd. These are water safe, reusable, and made to give the 2.8 tires on your truck maximum traction. The set you see in the pictures we have been driving for a couple of weeks now and so far we have been very impressed. We will be putting a lot more miles on them to test durability before our full review goes up in a few weeks.
We have not received a part number or pricing information yet, but you can Click Right Here to check out all the other goodies on Pro-Line’s official website.

Now that they are hitting consumer hands, the folks at Pro-Line have done a short article on some simple hop-ups to make the Yeti an even better off-road machine.

To make it easy to replicate their mods, they use plenty pictures and list all the part numbers needed.

When it comes to 2wd bash vehicles, the Pro-Line PRO-2 is perhaps our favorite on the market. But like any vehicle, when you bash it extra hard, parts will get broken.
To give extra protection to the front of the PRO-2, the crew over at T-Bone Racing came up with one of their Racer Series Front Bumpers. The TBR front bumper is made from heavy duty nylon to take the abuse so your truck doesn’t have to. A nylon brace runs to the top of the front bulkhead for extra support, and like most TBR products, it comes with their limited lifetime warranty against breakage.
The part number is #44500, street price is $21, and you can get complete details over on the official T-Bone Racing website.
The weekend has finally arrived, have a TGIF Mystery Link on us!

Ever get 10 minutes into a 45 main and your tires are bald? Hot temps on a high bite surface can easily do that to a set of tires. The new Fugitives from Pro-Line were designed to be the longest lasting race tire that they’ve ever produced. Instead of going with large widely spaced lugs, the Fugitives use hundreds of small tightly packed knobbies to give maximum traction while yielding incredibly long life. From European style tracks to concrete, the Fugitives should be a great choice.
Available in X2, X3, and X4 compounds, the Fugatives are priced at right around $23 per pair and $36 when pre-mounted. Get complete details at This Link over on the official Pro-Line Racing website.

Yesterday we were once again lucky enough to visit the PL crew and learn more about what it takes to get all their uber products to market. During our Pro-Line visit we were also able to get a closer look at the new PROTOform F1 bodies, as well as their new Interco TSL SX Super Swamper XLs mounted up on an Axial Yeti. Both looked incredible and should be hitting the market in the very near future.
