Hello everyone – Even though Old Man Winter has given most of the lower 48 a break this year. For us here in Chicagoland, there is a couple of inches of snow on the ground which is perfect for the snowmobile conversion from Integy. Rear treads and front ski’s are available. For those of you in a milder climate, these bad boys will work great on sand as well. These kits are available for the 5B/T, Savage Flux, Revo, Summit and T/E Maxx.

Proline 1992 Jeep Cherokee
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 Traxxas T-MAXX and Revo size vehicles! The official model number on it is 3361-00! What’s really cool is this body has not even been announced!!! As of the time of this post, it’s not even on their website! This is a nice surprise! Whoever the little birdie is over at Pro-Line that snuck this one out, it’s much appreciated, thanks for the exclusive!

Here are a couple of shots, a little hard to see without the paint, but it’s coming soon!

Make sure you check out Pro-Line for info, I’m sure it will be up in the next few days!

Pro-Line has a few new bodies for a few of Traxxas’ most popular vehicles.  Shown above is the new, officially licensed Chevy Silverado 2500 HD body for the Stampede and Stampede 4×4.  Also available is a body based on the over-compensating GMC TopKick medium duty road truck for the various T-Maxx and Revo platforms, including the Summit and E-Revo, and also HPI’s Savage line.  And finally, for the on-roaders out there, they have an officially licensed 2012 Ford Fiesta ST body for the 1/16 Rally cars.  All of these will come with all the usual officially licensed decals, masks, and overspray film.

MSRPs start at $26.95 for the Fiesta and go up to $36.95 for the TopKick and they are all available now.  Check out the Pro-Line website for more info.

More power is always better, bigger motors are always better, strong motor mounts to keep those bigger and more powerful motors are always better.  Kershaw Designs has a new motor mount for the Traxxas Revo and Summit that will let you securely bolt on those bigger and more powerful motors.  The Kershaw Designs XXL motor mounts will let you mount Kershaw’s own monstrous XXL motors and various large Castle Creations motors such as the 1518 1Y, 1520 1Y, and 1717.  The mounts raise the motor height slightly to clear the rear shock tower.  These mounts are available directly from Kershaw for $29.00.  Check out the Kershaw Designs web site for more info and ordering.

RPM Revo Bumper mount RPM Revo Bumper mount

Those awesome possums at RPM have some new nylons to show off. If you have a Traxxas Revo and have been breaking your bumper mounts then consider your day saved. The engineers at RPM have found many ways to beef up the stock bumpers and have designed new front & rear bumper mounts. They took the stock mounts and widened them to allow more room to flex their muscle. They also took the center rib and curved it to make the mounts less rigid and more tougher. And of course they will be molded in RPM’s legendarily tough custom nylon blend. These new mounts will be available in black and RPM’s stand-out blue. MSRP is going to be $6.95 each. Bumpers aren’t included, but then you could always buy RPM’s Revo bumpers to go with them.
