All you short course truck drivers have two new tire choices for your truck. Duratrax has announced they are bringing their Six Pack and Picket tread patterns to the SCT world.
We’ve been fans of the Six Pack tire design since we first tried them. They look cool and have good traction on a wide variety of surfaces. The new Six Pack SCs should give loads of traction to your SCT and we can’t wait to try a set.
Everyone knows the world revolves around scale looks now days, the new Picket SC tires can bring that type of look to your SCT. With an aggressive full scale type of tread, they look good and should work well on everything from pavement to loamy dirt.
Both sets of tires are available unmounted, or pre-mounted for the Traxxas Slash 2wd, Slash 4×4, HPI Blitz, Associated SC10, SC10 4×4, Losi SCTE, and the ARRMA Fury. Click Here for more information over on the official Duratrax website.

Ever get 10 minutes into a 45 main and your tires are bald? Hot temps on a high bite surface can easily do that to a set of tires. The new Fugitives from Pro-Line were designed to be the longest lasting race tire that they’ve ever produced. Instead of going with large widely spaced lugs, the Fugitives use hundreds of small tightly packed knobbies to give maximum traction while yielding incredibly long life. From European style tracks to concrete, the Fugitives should be a great choice.
Available in X2, X3, and X4 compounds, the Fugatives are priced at right around $23 per pair and $36 when pre-mounted. Get complete details at This Link over on the official Pro-Line Racing website.

There was one tire that stood out after the announcement of Duratrax’s new 3.8 Monster Truck Tire line-up, the Hatchet MT. You see, the Hatchet uses a scale inspired chevron style tread that looks like the tires on a full size monster truck, and they should do a great job of shoveling mud/dirt/gravel while out bashing. Luckily it wasn’t long and we had a set for testing in our hands.
We received the pre-mounted version of the Hatchet MT on chrome wheels. They come packaged like most tires today, in re-sealable plastic bag, and the wheels/tires were pre-glued and ready to be mounted to a vehicle. We are big fans of pre-mounted wheels/tires because of how much time they save, we would rather by bashing than gluing. Also, we’ve found that the Hatchet MTs are some big beefy tires. When placed next to a stock tire off a Thunder Tiger MT4-G3, they are slightly shorter, but much wider, and with very deep tread.
We’ve already been bashing with the Hatchet MTs, but our full review is still a few weeks away. To get full details on the Hatchet MTs, plus all the other 3.8″ monster truck tires that Duratrax makes, simply hit up This Link.
