Pro-Line Cody King Psycho Nitro Blast
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.

We’ve used the Pro-Line extended mounts on several projects around the office, they work well and they come with the uber Pro-Line washers/body clip replacements! Hit up THIS LINK on the official Pro-Line website to view some of the body mounts they offer.

Can you smell that? That is the weekend. BBQ, baseball and trigger time. To kick it off right check out a TGIF Mystery Link.

Video Pro-Line pre-painted short course bodies

To give you more information on them Pro-Line has released a short video highlighting some of their features. The video is short and sweet, click below to take a look at it.

Pro-Line Clear 10th Scale Buggy Wing
Pro-Line Racing has just announced a new wing for 10th scale buggies and it’s cool in multiple ways. First off is performance, the new Stabilizer 7″ Wing yields more rear traction and high speed stability for your buggy. The Stabilizer is also molded out of super thick Lexan, making it one of the most durable wings on the market. It also comes in pairs. If you’ve driven a tenth scale buggy very much you know that bodies can last a long time, but the wings are constantly getting torn up, so it’s cool to get the wings in packs of two.

The part number for the new Stabilizer 7″ is #6248-00 and you can expect a street price of right around $16. HERE is the link for the Stabilizer Wing on the official Pro-Line Racing website.

Thank goodness it’s Friday! How about checking out a TGIF Mystery Link?

Pro-Line Trenchers Pre-Mounted on Renegade Wheels
What is possibly the best tire you can put on your short course truck for bashing? Pro-Line Trencher X SC’s of course, and now they are available pre-mounted on black Renegade wheels.

The Trencher X’s and Renegade combo make not only a very scale looking combination, but also a great performer out in the dirt. With them now being pre-mounted they save you the time and frustration of the entire gluing process.

Pro-Line has Trencher X pre-mounts available to fit vehicles like the Traxxas Slash and Slash 4×4, the HPI Blitz, Associated SC10 4×4, Pro-Line ProTrac Slash, and Losi Ten SCTE. Part numbers are #1190-13 and #1190-18, and you can hit THIS link for more information. Street price is $35 per pair.

Pro-Line F-11 Black Wheel for Traxxas
Pro-Line have just announced some very cool wheels to fit your 17mm hex monster truck like the Traxxas Revo or Summit. An 11 spoke design was utilized, as well as detailed bolt heads and a swept back face to give them a true full scale look.

Intended for heavy duty bashing, Pro-Line made the new F-11′s extra strong with large webbing in the back. The extra webbing should help keep them in one piece even after those second story landings to pavement. The half inch offset makes your truck wider for a tougher looking stance and added stability in the corners.

The new F-11′s come in pairs, the part number is #2742-03, and they have a street price of $15. THIS is a direct link to them on Pro-Line’s website.

Pro-Line Pre-painted Bodies for Short Course Trucks
Pro-Line Racing has officially jumped into the pre-painted body business. Now you can walk right into a hobby shop and walk out with not only a trick Pro-Line short course truck body, but one that has been professionally painted, partially trimmed, and one that is nearly ready to mount up to your machine. No more buying rattle cans, nor more spending hours painting, you can now get an uber Pro-Line body that is ready to rock.

Also of note on the new pre-painted Pro-Line bodies- they are NOT el’cheapo silk screened bodies from China with black windows. The Pro-Line’s are high quality, hand painted bodies.

Pro-Line announced two different versions- a “MotoX” themed Flo-Tek, and a Ford Raptor SVT. Look for a price of right around $85 on both of these, and note they are only available from the Pro-Line website at the moment.

The new pre-painted SCT bodies from Pro-Line can models like the Traxxas Slash and Slash 4×4, the Associated SC10 and SC10 4×4, the Losi XXX-SCT and SCTE, the HPI Blitz and the Kyosho Ultima SC.

Want more of the scoop on these hot new bodies? THIS is the link you want for the Flo-Tek, and THIS is the link you want for the Ford Raptor SVT.

Pro-Line Pro-Cap 17mm Wheel Nuts
Have you ever noticed the wheel nuts for your 8th scale buggy tend to “go missing” a lot at the track? They either go flying off your wheel at 30,000 rpm down the main straight (never to be found again) or one of your racing buddies like to “permanently borrow” them.

Pro-Line has some good news for you, they have just announced some very trick new Pro-Cap 17mm Wheel Nuts. The new Pro-Caps come with serrations to dig into the wheel and prevent them from coming loose. To make the look as good as they perform Pro-Line anodized the Pro-Caps blue and laser etched their logo on top.

Part number for the Pro-Caps is #6090-00 and they have a street price of $20 for a set of four. Click on over to the Pro-Line Website for more information.

proline_milita_02

It’s awesome to see Pro-Line coming out with some new original bodies! Their latest is the Desert Militia for the Traxxas 1/16 E-Revo. Similar to their Rat Rod body, the Desert Militia body is going to have people dusting off their 1/16th scales and show them off with a whole new look! I can’t wait to see the hardcore scale guys throwing real light bars on the roof!

You can get more details at the official Pro-Line Website.

proline_rat_rod_01

Pro-Line caused a serious stir among the rc community earlier in the week when they teased a picture of their upcoming Rat Rod body for the Traxxas 1/16 E-Revo. It was cool to see Pro-Line take a small step from their normal stuff and put out such a cool scale looking body. Painting the tires to look like white walls is a great, quick and easy step to really bringing the whole look together. We are looking forward to getting our hands on this body, and also have our fingers crossed that Pro-Line produces a similar body in other scales!

Check out the video with a slightly different look to it:
