Proline 1992 Jeep Cherokee

Pro-Line Jeep Cherokee – 1992 for the T-Maxx and Revo

Sitting on my desk today was a box from Pro-Line. I always like surprises! Especially the ones that Cubby has not already opened and is driving around in the parking lot, and all I see is the empty box. This one was untouched! So I open it up to find a new body! It’s a new Jeep Cherokee 1992 for [...]

New Traxxas Release

Traxxas has something new coming out on the 30th of  November 2011! And that’s it really… We don’t know any more! There have been guesses that it could be a 1/5th scale or a 1/8th scale buggy, but nobody is 100% sure. At the rumor price close to $1000 it’s not going to be a 1/16th scale! Personally we are [...]

Traxxas Style Bead 3.8″ Trencher Tires!

Pro-Line just sent us a sneak peek of some 3.8″ Trencher tires that fit wheels with a Traxxas style bead. These things are massive, and scream durability!

They will be available as the tires alone, or mounted on 17mm hex Desperado wheels. Keep an eye on the [...]


ASK Cub Reporter- 09.28.2011- Great Questions, Questionable …

Traxxas 12800mah lipos Hi there just wondering if you have reviewed these yet and if you have, what would be a suggested ac dual charger to keep these bad boys fresh. Thank you Aleic G.

It comes with the Titan 12T Brushed motor, 2.4Ghz radio system, and BFGoodrich replica tires. [...]
