Owners of Pro-Line‘s excellent ProTrac suspension upgrade will be delighted to hear about their latest addition to the ProTrac family.  Their new ProTrac Renegade Red & Black bead lock wheels will add a bit of flair to your dull and ugly ride. You know what I’m talking about. Your all murdered out, flat black, not a hint of color anywhere ride. Yeah, it’s ugly and boring, stop it, that’s sooooo 2003.   But not only that, they’re bead locks, that means no more glue!  Yay!  The wheels, as the name implies, are made in the ProTrac offset, so they’ll fit on any Slash that’s been upgraded with the ProTrac suspension kit or many other popular short course trucks.

These new Renegade wheels will be available later this month.  Check out the Pro-Line website for all the details.

Some days I think about just copying and pasting the old announcements for these bodies and just changing the name of whatever car it’s for now.  But that wouldn’t be fair, not to you, not to Brian, not to Pro-Line or the other companies.  But trying to be original when writing about a new BullDog body, this time for Kyosho’s uber Lazer ZX-5 4wd buggy, is a bit tough.  I mean, you know I’m going to tell you all about the cab forward design that increases down force all along the body and improves driving performance.  And you know that it will include window masks, decals, and overspray film.  So what original, unique thing can I say about it?

Anyway, this new version of the BullDog body will be available toward the end of this month, with an MSRP similar to the other versions of the BullDog buggy body.  Check out the Pro-Line website for more info.

If you need some new front shoes for your 1/10 scale 4WD buggy, Pro-Line has you covered with their new Scrubs 2.2″ tires. They are avaliable in soft, super-soft, and clay, come with foam inserts, and an angled bar design for superior bite. They are avaliable later this month.

As always, be sure to hit up the Pro-Line website for all the specs!

Pro-Line has some new Desperado 2.8″ rims avaliable in black for a bunch of different Traxxas vehicles (Electric/Nitro Stampede, Rustler, Jato). They have an aggressive 6-spoke design, and work with all 2.8″ style bead tires. These look sick!

Be sure to check out Pro-Line for all the details!

The guys at Pro-Line have some new 1/10 scale buggy stuff coming later this month. Their new BullDog body can be ordered to fit the Kyosho ZX-5 or Losi 22 in either the mid or rear motor mount configuration. They come unpainted, with decals, window masks, and wings. If you’ve already got a body, but need a wing, they also offer some 1/10 scale buggy wings to give you ride that extra downforce.

Make sure you check out Pro-Line for more details.

A friend at Pro-Line sent along this exclusive photo and a brief description of their next wheel in the pipeline.  It goes by the name Desperado and is a 2.8″ wheel made for various Traxxas vehicles like the nitro and electric StampedesJato, and the Rustlers.  It uses the Traxxas style glue bead, so it’s compatible with Traxxas’ 2.8″ tires in addition to Pro-Line’s extensive new line of 2.8s, which includes the Trencher, Road Rage, Badlands, Bow-Tie, and Dirt Hawg treads.  Black is the color right now with chrome under consideration, so if you’d like to see chrome, let us know by voting in our little poll below and maybe Pro-Line will hear your cries.

Nothing about this wheel is up yet, but check out the Pro-Line website anyway for good measure.

Our friends over at Pro-Line have just released a ton of new tires! You can now get the ever-popular Caliber 2.0 SC 2.2″/3.0″ mounted on either ProTrac Renegade or Renegade Black Wheels in medium or soft compound. You can also get the Trencher SC 2.2″/3.0″ or the Gladiator SC 2.2″/3.0″ mounted on black Renegade wheels in medium compound. They also offer the Revolver 2.0 M3 (soft) mounted on V2 White Wheels for all you 1/8 scale buggy drivers. Lastly, Pro-Line now offers a M4 (Super Soft) Revolution tire line featuring the Caliber VTR 4.0″ and Hole Shot VTR 4.0″ for 1/8 scale trucks, and the Hole Shot T 2.2″, Caliber 2.2″, and Suburbs T 2.2″ for any 2.2″ rear truck wheels.

All of these tires and combos should be shipping by Mid May. Make sure you bounce on over to Pro-Line’s website to check out all the specs, pics, and info on these new tires!


If you’re looking to add a little “bow-tie” to your short course truck, check out Pro Line’s Chevy Silverado 1500 Pro-2 body. This new body comes clear, with all the window masks and decals for you to custom paint and design to look however you want. It even has 1-piece bolt-on number plates and side dams to give this thing a true authentic race look.

Made to fit the Slash, Slash 4×4, Blitz, SC10, and Ultima, this body should be avaliable soon. Check out Pro-Line Racing for all the details.

Short Course bashers and racers rejoice! Pro Line has a new body specifically designed to cut down on SCT “parachuting”. For those of you that don’t know, short course trucks tend trap a ton of air under their big bodies, which creates sort of a floating “parachute” effect whenever the truck is in the air. The new Flo-Tek body is designed with futuristic styling and large vent holes to help eliminate this effect.

This is just awesome! Nothing is more frustrating than hitting a big jump when a gust of wind flares up, turning your SCT into an airplane that almost never lands on its wheels. Bashers and racers won’t have to drill massive holes in their bodies anymore! Make sure you check out Pro-Line Racing for all the details.

Need some better bite out of your short course truck? Pro-Line has something to help with their new Caliber 2.0 SCT tires. Brian first posted a little sneak peak on these guys, but we now have some official specs. They come in medium, soft, or super soft compound, have a wider contact patch than the original Caliber design, and are avaliable for the SC10, Blitz, Slash, Slash 4×4, and Ultima.

Head over to Pro Line for more details!

Pro-Line Caliber 2.0 SC tires

Looks like Pro-Line has decided to get off the diet and pack on some inches! We got this sneak peak of the new Caliber 2.0 SC tires, and they are getting big! Looks like more traction for everybody! There wasn’t much other info with the sneak peek, so we’ll have to wait for some official numbers.

Check out the Pro-Line website for more info.

NEO: Whoa.  Déjà vu.
TRINITY: What did you just say?
NEO: Nothing.  Just had a little déjà vu.
TRINITY: What happened?  What did you see?
NEO: A F-150 Raptor SVT body went past us and then I saw another that looked just like it.
TRINITY: How much like it?  Was it the same F-150 Raptor SVT body?
NEO: It might have been.  I’m not sure.

Pro-Line has another Ford F-150 Raptor SVT body ready for you to purchase.  This time it’s made to fit the good ol’ Stampede and the new hotness Stampede 4×4.  It’s formed out of some bulky .060″ Lexan so it should handle all the rough-and-tumble you can throw at it.  You can expect to find decals with officially licensed Ford logos, window masks, and overspray film.  Just paint it and mount it and you’ll be good to go.

You can expect to find this version of the F-150 Raptor SVT body on store shelves around the 23rd of this month at a list price of $28.95.  Check out the Pro-Line website for more info.

proline m4 caliber Looks like
Pro-Line is bringing their super soft M4 tire compound to the off-road series. The Revolver, Hole Shot, and Caliber tires will all be getting the M4 treatment in the near future. If you have a 1:8 or 1:10 off-road, and need some soft and traction grabbing action, watch for these coming very soon!
