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.

Pro-Line Closed Cell Inserts Traxxas 2.8

Closed cell tire inserts have a number of advantages over old school foam. They don’t soak up as much water in wet conditions, they last a lot longer, and they are firmer, resulting in better handling.

Pro-Line is bringing high tech closed cell inserts to the Traxxas 2.8 crowd. These are water safe, reusable, and made to give the 2.8 tires on your truck maximum traction. The set you see in the pictures we have been driving for a couple of weeks now and so far we have been very impressed. We will be putting a lot more miles on them to test durability before our full review goes up in a few weeks.

T-Bone Racing Bumper Pro-Line Pro-2
When it comes to 2wd bash vehicles, the Pro-Line PRO-2 is perhaps our favorite on the market. But like any vehicle, when you bash it extra hard, parts will get broken.

To give extra protection to the front of the PRO-2, the crew over at T-Bone Racing came up with one of their Racer Series Front Bumpers. The TBR front bumper is made from heavy duty nylon to take the abuse so your truck doesn’t have to. A nylon brace runs to the top of the front bulkhead for extra support, and like most TBR products, it comes with their limited lifetime warranty against breakage.

The part number is #44500, street price is $21, and you can get complete details over on the official T-Bone Racing website.
