proline_blockbuster

Pro-Line has sent a teaser picture of their upcoming short course body called the Blockbuster. And while you may think this is a typical teaser, it is anything but!

Since we are known for always digging up that extra detail, here is the scoop nobody knows… This is going to be the FIRST Pro-Line body built to hold a camera! Hence the name Blockbuster! We believe it should fit most GoPro size/type action cameras. So for all those guys that love making videos, and looking for a easier way to get that awesome shot, Pro-Line is about to hook you up!

Retail price should be about $32, and we believe the part number will be 3426-00, shipping in mid April.

More information and details will be released in the next day or so, until then hit up This Link to visit the official Pro-Line website.

Elliott is very excited about joining the ranks of world class racing stars who consistently drive Team Durango vehicles to the very pinnacle of RC’s competitive scene. Elliott was kind enough to share these really inspiring words with us when asked how he felt about his new pro drivers racing contract,

“First of all, I would like to say a huge thank you to the whole of the TRF team, the last few years has been a great experience and it has been a pleasure working with you all!

As times move on, new opportunities arise and this has been the case with Team Durango. The commitment of Team Durango to their racing projects is second to none and I am confident that working with them will achieve many wins and great results. It is a pleasure to be a part of this established racing team. I am really looking forward to the coming years working with Team Durango and I have a lot of faith in the forthcoming DETC410 project. We will all work to provide the most competitive and user friendly touring car on the market! Watch this space…..”

Elliott will join Team Durango current off-road junior star Michal Orlowski, who will also be signing as a pro team driver for the hotly anticipated Team Durango Touring Car Team.
