Just like in the full scale world, the single most effective upgrade you can make to your basher is better tires. The new fully licensed Interco TSL SX Super Swampers from Pro-Line promise more grip with a great scale authentic look. These are designed to fit the popular Traxxas 2.8″ wheel size and come with the new high-zoot closed cell Pro-Line inserts. The Super Swampers are said to give slightly more side-bite than PL Trenchers, with similar amounts of forward bite. Pricing is $21 per pair and they have a part number of #10110-00.

It’s hard working on a truck that rolls all over your tailgate or pit table, therefore many hobbyists use car stands when they wrench. We recently got a chance to check out both of the new car stands (1/10 & 1/8) from Pro-Line Racing and here is what we found out-
* We found the PL stands quite sturdy, they could handle the heaviest bashers we popped on them no problem.
* The powder coated finish held up well, even when bouncing around inside our pit box.
* We are used to stands that fold down to save space when not in use. The PL stands are solid but found they still fit easily into a pit box. When not in use we packed ours upside down and stored parts inside of them for a more efficient use of space.
* Our Bash Crew really liked the motocross look of the PL stands.
* The 8th scale stand was plenty tall, even for big monster trucks like the Thunder Tiger MT4 G3 and Savage Flux.
Overall we found the Pro-Line car stands to be top notch and well worth the cash. The Pro-Line 8th Scale Stand is priced at $44 while the 10th Scale Stand is $34.

THE Pro-Line PRO-MT Monster Truck Review
Low slung buggies and stadium/SCT trucks are great for busting out fast laps, but for real bashing monster trucks still rule. With bigger tires and more ground clearance, monster trucks can blast over the roughest of terrain, land from the highest jumps, and smash into hard objects better than their smaller counterparts.
Recently Pro-Line decided to throw their hat into the 10th scale 2wd monster truck ring. Their new PRO-MT is made up from a slew of high-end hop-up parts, do they jell to form the ultimate basher, or fall short into an overpriced shelf queen? You know the drill, hit the “Read More” button to find out…

Our full review of the PRO-MT goes up tomorrow, until then check out This Link for more Pro-Line news here on BigSquidRC.
As we were finishing up the Pro-Line Pro-MT review that goes up on Tuesday, we started talking among ourselves about our first experience with the truck. You see, the first time we got to pull trigger on the Pro-MT was nearly 2 months ago during our California Dreamin Road Trip. Our first drive included a big parking lot, a dirt area, and the Pro-Line crew even let us jump it off the top of their tractor trailer (a few times for good measure of course). The Pro-MT proved tough as nails during our initial test drive, just like it has during our further testing back home in the Midwest.
To find out how tough the Pro-MT is check out our full review that goes live this coming Tuesday. To get full details and to get one on pre-order, hit up This Link over on Pro-Line’s website.

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.
