Pro-Line Phantom body Tekno EB48.2
Tekno RC has taken off the last couple of years and now it’s fairly common to see them hauling around local tracks. However, there was not many choices when it came to aftermarket bodies for them.

Like other bodies in the Phantom line, the unit for Tekno has modern lines and is designed for optimal handling on track. Expect a street price around $27 and you can hit up This Link to check out all the goodies over on Pro-Line’s official website.

Pro-Line 1:16 Apocalypse body
While touring the Pro-Line facility in California last week, we got a chance to take a look at the 1/16 Apocalypse for the Traxxas Mini Summit in person. Like the full sized version, it has a tough military type SUV look to it, with lots of small details to make it pop. After one look we knew it would be a hit with the 16th scale crowd. If you have a 16th scale and are tired of the same style bodies, the 1/16 Apocalypse is a good choice and will certainly make your truck stand out at the local bash spot.

The part number for the 1:16 Apocalypse is #3431-00, it is priced at $27, and you can hit up This Link to check out Pro-Line’s official website.

It’s Friday, live it up a little with a TGIF Mystery Link.
