Remember our Pro-Line Short Course Kit contest, where the winner could pick if they wanted the body clear, or if they were brave enough to let one of our guys paint it for them? Well lucky for the winner, Manny grabbed the body before Cubby could get his hands and crayons on it! Here are a few shots of the finished body before we boxed it up and sent it out! We hope he likes it! Thanks to our scale dude, and painter extraordinaire Manny for the work on this one! I really dig the PL on the top!

Keep in mind, we didn’t cut any holes for body posts since we don’t know what truck it’s going on, the the body isn’t quite sitting right in the pics.

Thanks again to Pro-Line for the awesome prizes for the contest! And guess what, we will have information about another Pro-Line Contest coming VERY soon. So keep your eyes on the front page, this next one is going to make the entries real interesting!

Pro-Line Silverado HD Traxxas Slash
This one gets my vote for best looking body of 2012- the Pro-Line Chevy Silverado HD clear body for the Traxxas Slash and Slash 4×4. If you are looking to go for that uber scale lifted truck look with your Slash, Pro-Line’s new Silverado HD will work perfectly. Pro-Line’s extended body mounts are required, street price is $37, and you can get more information at THIS link on Pro-Line’s official website.

Pro-Line Bulldog Traxxas Stampede
Here’s yet another incredible body from Pro-Line, their Bulldog clear body for the Traxxas Stampede. The Bulldog design yields increased front down-force thus helping to keep the nose of your truck down during speed runs, and giving more front end bite in high speed corners. Street price is $25, and you can get more information at THIS link on Pro-Line’s official website.

Pro-Line Ion SC Tires
What’s that old saying, “Power is nothing without control.”? Well mount up a set of Pro-Line Ion SC tires and be dialed for your local high bite clay track. The new Ion’s come in Pro-Line’s popular MC clay compound, run about $25 a pair, and come with closed cell inserts. Hit up THIS link for even more information.

Pro-Line Clear Bulldog Body Traxxas Rustler
Pro-Line has always lead the pack in quality and style. Yesterday they announced their new clear Bulldog body for the Traxxas Rustler. If you are looking to make a bold statement while out bashing with your crew, the Bulldog will do it. Some of the features are-

* Gives improved high speed stability
* Tough Bulldog race truck styling
* Made with uber genuine GE Lexan
* Made right here in the USA
* Instantly become the coolest person your friends know

Street price is right around $25, and you can get more information on the Bulldog for Traxxas Rustler right HERE.

pro-line pro-2 lcg chassis

Way back in July we we posted pictures and some info about the new Pro-Line Pro-2 LCG Performance Chassis for the Traxxas Slash 2wd truck. Today we got some shiny new pictures along with a little more info. It sounds like it will be shipping VERY soon, and the price will be $127. For those that missed the info before, it has an aluminum chassis, that extends front to rear. The battery and ESC placements are adjustable to help you tune in that perfect balance you are looking for, and it also have aluminum steering posts and servo mounts. We have been salivating over this one for a while, and hopefully we won’t have too much longer.

pro-line sc contest

Just a reminder that we have more than one contest going on around here.. (yes we are that crazy!) Not only do we have the Mystery Vehicle Contest, but we have the Pro-LineShort Course Prize Pack with Possible Custom Surprise Body Contest

So here’s the deal, we have the following awesome prize package!
1 Pro-Line Pit Mat
1 set of Pro-Line Pro Pulls
1 Pro-Line Hat
1 Pro-Line shirt
2x Trencher X Tires (The new ones!)
1 Flo-Tek Chevy Silverado 1500 Body!

And of course a ton of Big Squid RC stickers to cover that body and all your other rides. Now if you were paying attention, I mentioned ‘Possible Custom Surprise Body’ in the contest name.. so we were thinking, we will give the winner of the contest the choice, they can take the body clear, OR let one of our guys paint up a custom one for you. You will have NO SAY in how we paint it, or how we customize it. Maybe we let Manny, our uber scale guy whip something up, or maybe we will let Cubby have at it with crayons and markers. It may get murdered out, or come in a nice shade of pink. It’s a risk you will have to take. :) I honestly hope the winner is brave enough.

Rules and stuff:
So how do you enter? We are going to mix this one up a little bit. You need to LIKE THIS POST ON FACEBOOK, and LEAVE A COMMENT on the Big Squid Facebook Page. That’s it! We are going to open this contest up to the US and Canada only. Sorry to all the people that are not here in the North America, but it would cost more to ship it than if you just bought it local.

You have till Friday, September 14th 2012 (8pm cst) to enter! We will then draw a winner and post it up at 10pm cst. Please, only 1 entry per person.

Special thanks to Pro-Line Racing for helping out on this one. While your at it, go LIKE the Pro-Line Facebook Page as well, as a way of saying thanks for their support to Big Squid RC!

pro-line extended body mounts

Pro-Line had us at ‘Twist and Extend’ when we saw these new Extended Body Posts they were using with their new Ford Focus Rally Car Body back at RCX. They have several different style posts that will fit the Traxxas Slash 2WD, 4WD, and Losi TEN SCTE! So if you want to turn your short course truck into a rally car, it’s easy to do, and is going to be all the rage. I may be wrong, but I think you are going to see a lot of these body conversions this fall at the bash spots and tracks. I’m also looking forward to seeing what other bodies I can fit on our slash with these posts!
