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.

We have not received a part number or pricing information yet, but you can Click Right Here to check out all the other goodies on Pro-Line’s official website.
