After a Sneak Peak, Pro-Line have officially announced their new Trencher tires for Traxxas 1:16 Revo. All you hardcore bashers out there already know how kick butt Trenchers are- they give great traction on nearly any surface and last a very long time. Trenchers might very well be the best basher tire that money can buy and now you can get them for your Mini Revo.
The Trencher 2.2 uses horizontal “H” shaped tread for outstanding forward bite and have a height of 3.62″ and a width of 1.73″. Their part number is #1194-00, street price is $16 a pair and they are available right now for your bashing pleasure. To read more about them hit up THIS LINK over on Pro-Line’s website.

Notice how much Traxxas prices have went up lately? You can save some cash as Traxxas is now offering many of their Lipo ready models without battery packs. This saves you money and nobody likes paying extra for battery packs they don’t want or need. Traxxas still includes a Lipo battery charger with all the trucks, two chargers on models that use dual battery packs.
MIP continues to unleash cool new products, their latest is Race Duty Aluminum CVD’s for select Traxxas vehicles.
The Race Duty CVD bones are made out of aluminum, thus saving weight and reducing rotating mass. Less rotating mass yields quicker acceleration and longer run-times, something everyone is looking for. Steel is used for the out-drives and axles for increased durability.
MIP part number #13105 is for the front of the Traxxas Rally and Slash 4×4 while part number #13115 fits the rear. For the Traxxas Stampede or Rustler you’ll want part number #13110. Retail pricing is $60 a pair, for more information THIS is the link to the MIP website.

File this one deep in the rumor mill drawer, but we have started hearing some rumblings about a possible new 1/5th scale coming from Traxxas! This is one of those brothers, uncle’s, roomate’s cat sort of deals, but the last time we reported a Lowered Slash Traxxas Rumor we got a LCG chassis a few months later, and the one before that we heard about a dragster with a timing system…. just saying..
To add some even more crazy to the rumor, we heard something along the lines of a dragster/funny car! I could believe a 5th scale.. but a 5th scale funny car? While there would be a few people that would LOVE it.. because I know a handful of people who actually run large scale drag racing.. I’d have to think that is not where the big sales numbers are at.
Take it for what it’s worth.. just a rumor.. any takers on this one? Comments are open.. lets hear em!

Want to put some uber strong driveshafts on your Traxxas Slash 4×4, Stampede 4×4, or Traxxas Rally car? With the new Traxxas #6869 12mm wheel adapters you can use the heavy duty steel-splined driveshafts that were originally designed for the XO-1 supercar. The new 12mm hex’s have a 6mm inner diameter, thus allowing use of the heavier driveshafts. A drill bit is included to make a larger hole in your wheels allowing the beefier shafts to fit through.
Detailed instructions come with the hex adapters and you’ll need part numbers #6451 (front driveshafts x2), #6452 (rear driveshafts x2), #6439 (steering blocks), #6455 (axle carriers), #5117 (bearings x3) to complete the conversion. With the retail price of the Traxxas #6869 12mm hex adapters being $28, you are looking at roughly $200 to do the complete conversion, but once completed you are that much closer to a bomb-proof drivetrain.
Now that you’ve read about how to beef up your Traxxas, how about a TGIF Mystery Pic?
