If you have been reading BigSquidRC for any length of time, you know we are big fans of Pro-Line Racing. Their products are top notch, just like the people behind them. Yesterday we were once again lucky enough to visit the PL crew and learn more about what it takes to get all their uber products to market. During our Pro-Line visit we were also able to get a closer look at the new PROTOform F1 bodies, as well as their new Interco TSL SX Super Swamper XLs mounted up on an Axial Yeti. Both looked incredible and should be hitting the market in the very near future.
We would like to say an extra special “Thank You!” to Todd, Jessica, Gerardo, Matt, Tim, and all the good folks over at Pro-Line for once again letting us invade their home office. If you haven’t visited the Pro-Line Website lately, click Right Here to check out all their fine products.

I’ve had my Pro-Line Faultline 1.9 wheels on my main Axial SCX10 comp/trail truck for close to five months now and in that time have beaten the tar outta them. Click the “Read More” below to see how they fared!
Here is some news you won’t find anyplace else. Remember that Pro-Line Spy Shot we posted on Friday? We have just received word that Pro-Line will now have an XL Sized version of their Interco TSL SX Super Swamper 2.2″ tires. The XL size is ideal for the scale crawling crowd that wants maximum ground clearance for getting over tough obstacles, or for people that simply like the look of a bigger tire. The Super Swamper XLs bolt right up to Pro-Line’s Titus 2.2″ Bead-Loc wheels and feature that scale look everyone is after.
* Officially licensed by Interco Tire Corporation
* Available in G8 compound
* Comes with memory foam inserts
The part number is #10107-14, street pricing will be right around $30 per pair, and they are scheduled for an August release date. Click Right Here to visit the official Pro-Line website.

We also added a couple more of our spy shots that we had for size comparison.
A few of your guesses were pretty close. Nice work!
So, we know EXACTLY what this is, the question is, do you? What’s cool is this is so fresh, it does not even have the markings, or part number on the sidewall yet. We will post a bunch of pictures, and all the juicy details on Monday. We are pretty excited about this new upcoming release from Pro-Line. For now though, enjoy the quick spy shot we snagged.

The folks over at Pro-Line Racing are huge supporters of the rc hobby and were out in full force at the HobbyTown USA Convention.

As always, the Pro-Line crew was super affable and we had a great time bench racing with them about the hobby.

In part 1 of this series I took a brand new Pro-Line Pro-2 short course truck and converted it from the intended purpose of SCT to a dirt oval modified car. Since then the car has been completely finished and put through it’s paces on two race nights. Click the “Read More” below to see how it performed and see a lot of pictures!
Pro-Line has just made it a lot easier to get one of their ultra trick PRO-2 Buggies. You no longer have to buy one of their trucks and convert it over, the PRO-2 Buggy is now available as a stand alone kit. The PRO-2 buggy combines realistic looks with a high performance chassis to make it a great choice for bashing or for the track.
While the word “kit” is used along with the new PRO-2 buggy, much of it comes pre-built. It comes much like their PRO-2 truck, with the shocks, transmission, and much of the chassis already assembled. This speeds up the time of going from the box to the local bash spot.
Of course the PRO-2 buggy is littered with goodies. For example, it comes with the same uber PowerStroke shocks, Performance LCG chassis, ProTrac suspension, and Performance transmission of the PRO-2 truck. For tires, it comes with Pro-Line Blockades, some of the best race tires money can buy.
The part number for the PRO-2 Buggy Kit is #4002-01, it is street priced at $389, and they are available right now. To get full details simply click This Link To head over to the official Pro-Line website.
Time for the last TGIF Mystery Link of the day!
