After a Sneak Peak, Pro-Line have officially announced their new Trencher tires for Traxxas 1:16 Revo. All you hardcore bashers out there already know how kick butt Trenchers are- they give great traction on nearly any surface and last a very long time. Trenchers might very well be the best basher tire that money can buy and now you can get them for your Mini Revo.
The Trencher 2.2 uses horizontal “H” shaped tread for outstanding forward bite and have a height of 3.62″ and a width of 1.73″. Their part number is #1194-00, street price is $16 a pair and they are available right now for your bashing pleasure. To read more about them hit up THIS LINK over on Pro-Line’s website.

We really like pre-mounted tires around the office, they save us a bunch of time and work and they keep Brian from gluing his fingers together. Pro-Line is in the business of making lives easier so they’ve announced a bunch of new pre-mounted tire/wheel combo’s.
First up are their new Shockwave 3.8″ pre-mounts. These feature their new Shockwave tires mounted up on 3.8″ F-11 black wheels made to bolt right up on your monster truck. These lightweight tires give better than stock traction on all the surfaces that bashers like- grass, pavement, and of course in the mud. Street price for these monsters is $45 a pair and they have a part number of #1193-13. Click Here for more information.

Part numbers are #1182-15 for the ProTrac offset and #1182-13 for Slash rear. Street pricing is $35 a pair, simply click THIS LINK for more information.
For you guys that do most of your bashing on the street Pro-Line has introduced new Road Rage 2.8″ pre-mounts. Road Rages give great traction on pavement and seem to wear forever. These come in two different offsets, #1172-12 and #1172-13 to ensure a proper fit on your Traxxas Stampede. Street pricing is $35 a pair and HERE is the link you want to get more information.

The last set of new pre-mounts are Trencher 3.8″ mounted up on black F-11 wheels.

These new pre-mounts come with 17mm hexes to fit vehicles like the Revo and the Summit and have a part number of #1184-13. Street price is $45 a pair and check out THIS LINK for more information (and even a BigSquid mention!).

Here are a couple of excerpts from the race report of Pro-Line Racing driver Cody King. This is the race report from the Psycho Nitro Blast where he won truggy and finished second in buggy while using Pro-Line tires.
“In Truggy, Lutz would grab the TQ, but the main was little different. I would get the lead early and battle the entire 45 minutes with Pro-Line‘s Adam Drake and Barry Pettit. When I say the entire 45, I really mean the whole thing from tone to tone. Those guys really made me work for it, and it wasn’t until the last few laps that I finally started stretching out. I’m really pleased to have a win in truggy. It’s been awhile since I won a truggy event, and the truck is really good right now. We softened the shock oil and moved some weight up front, and it’s really good.
Big thank you to all my Sponsors for the support, many of whom did special things to make this happen at the last minute. Kyosho ran around and got me parts last minute to bring on the trip. Reds did so much and the R5T TE engines in both my cars were so perfect the entire time, as well as the Reds turbo #5 plug which may be the best plug in RC right now. The new 2104 pipe is very good as well, even smoother power and better fuel mileage. Pro-Line, thanks very much for sending tires out and getting them there by Thursday. I ran Holeshots in both classes (M3 in truggy/M4 in buggy) and they were hooked up the entire time. Even in the buggy after 45 minutes I did my fastest lap at the end of the race. Byron Fuels, thanks for the great juice. The Worlds Blend sweep at this race! A Main Hobbies, KO Propo, everyone, thanks very much.”
