Pro-Line Suburbs 2.0 SC MX Blue Groove Tires
There is only one leader in the tire game and that is Pro-Line. Part of being a leader is making tweaks to an already good design to make it even better. Such is the case with Pro-Line’s new Suburbs 2.0 SC short course truck tires. The Suburbs were already a very popular high bite/blue groove tire, the 2.0 version is wider for more traction and also features more pins and a deeper tread. If you run on blue groove outdoor tracks or on indoor clay you’ll definitely want to try a set of the new Suburbs 2.0 SC’s.

The part number for the MX compound Suburbs 2.0 SC’s is #1171-16 and expect a street price of around $25 per pair. More information can be found by visiting Pro-Line’s Official Website.

For you Team Associated B44 guys, Pro-Line has just announced a new BullDog body for the 1/10 buggy. It’s specifically for the B44.2, with a longer and narrower chassis, so it needed a little longer and sleeker body. Street price is around $25.

Pro-Line iHobby 2012
Our friends over at Pro-Line Racing are here iHobby showcasing all their ultra-trick bodies and tires. New for iHobby is their front and rear Slash bumpers that not only look a lot better than stock, but are engineered to really take a beating.

Also showcased in the Pro-Line booth is their new Bulldog cab-forward style bodies for the Traxxas Stampede and Rustler. The Bulldog bodies for the Traxxas trucks help keep the front end down at high speeds and also enhance steering.

One of the coolest things on display at the show is Pro-Line’s new Chevy Silverado HD clear body for the Traxxas Slash and Slash 4×4. The Chevy body looks good in pictures, but absolutely gorgeous in person.

For more information on all the fine products Pro-Line manufactures hit up their Official Website.

We have truckloads of Pro-Line news right HERE on BigSquidRC.

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 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.
