THE Pro-Line PRO-MT Monster Truck Review

Pro-Line PRO-MT Review

Low slung buggies and stadium/SCT trucks are great for busting out fast laps, but for real bashing monster trucks still rule. With bigger tires and more ground clearance, monster trucks can blast over the roughest of terrain, land from the highest jumps, and smash into hard objects better than their smaller counterparts.

Recently Pro-Line decided to throw their hat into the 10th scale 2wd monster truck ring. Their new PRO-MT is made up from a slew of high-end hop-up parts, do they jell to form the ultimate basher, or fall short into an overpriced shelf queen?

Pro-Line Pro-MT Monster TruckAs we were finishing up the Pro-Line Pro-MT review that goes up on Tuesday, we started talking among ourselves about our first experience with the truck. You see, the first time we got to pull trigger on the Pro-MT was nearly 2 months ago during our California Dreamin Road Trip. Our first drive included a big parking lot, a dirt area, and the Pro-Line crew even let us jump it off the top of their tractor trailer (a few times for good measure of course). The Pro-MT proved tough as nails during our initial test drive, just like it has during our further testing back home in the Midwest.

To find out how tough the Pro-MT is check out our full review that goes live this coming Tuesday. To get full details and to get one on pre-order, hit up This Link over on Pro-Line’s website.

Pro-Line Pro-MT Monster Truck
The BigSquidRC Bash Crew just got done with our first big unveil of iHobby 2014, the Pro-Line Pro-MT 2wd monster truck. We had a nice crowd gathered around our booth who could not wait to see it before anyone else on the planet.

What is the scoop on the Pro-MT? Based off the impressive Pro-Line PRO-2 chassis, this 1/10th scale 2wd has multiple upgrades to help transform it into the ultimate bashing machine.

* The chassis is all new. Made from 3mm aluminum it features raised side guards to keep mud/dirt out of your electronics and to give the truck a cool look.

* The Pro-MT features all metal transmission gears and beefier tranny case to handle loads of power.

* Also to handle crazy amount of brushless power, the Pro-MT comes with all new Pro-Spline HD Axles featuring hardened steel construction as well as oversized bearings.

* Blue anodized aluminum front caster blocks come standard, as do Pro-Line F-11 wheels and Trencher tires.

* A new body named the “Sentinel” was made just for the Pro-MT. It is extra thick and has beveled edges for less scratching when upside down.

* New heavy duty front and rear bumpers come standard, as does ProTrac suspension.

The Pro-MT has a part number of #4003-00 and will be street priced at $389. It comes as a modular kit and you can hit up the

Pro-LIne 2.8 Closed Cell Foam Insert
We posted a teaser for Pro-Line’s new 2.8″ Closed Cell Foam Inserts last week, now full information has been released.

Pro-Line knows that a lot of you bashers out there are hard on your gear, so they wanted to give you a more durable option for a 2.8″ insert. Closed cell foam is well known to last longer, which is great bashing, and it doesn’t absorb as much water as a traditional insert, also a great thing for the bashing crowd. The closed cell inserts are also firmer than traditional foam allowing them to perform better under heavy loads and to balloon less on high speed passes. To boil it down, these are perfect for hardcore bashers that run 2.8 sized wheels/tires.

The Pro-Line 2.8″ closed cell foams have a part number of #6266-00, are street priced at $11 per pair, and you can get complete details by hitting up This Link over on Pro-Line’s website.
