After months of teasing, Pro-Line has released full information on their new PRO-2 Buggy Conversion Kit. The kit comes with everything you need to convert your Pro-Line PRO-2 to a buggy, and it can be converted right back to a truck when needed.
Modeled after a Class 1 Desert Buggy, the supplied body and roll cage are loaded with scale detailing for a sharp look. Plastic window nets add to the scale appearance, but won’t pull out like rubber netting. Pro-Line light buckets can easily be added, as can a wing if you plan racing or just like that type of look. Also, the narrow buggy body is sure to suffer from a whole lot less parachute than a typical short course truck, making it easier to jump on windy days.
The part number for the conversion kit is #6254-00, the street price is $78, and you can get more information by simply clicking This Link.
