New tires from Pro-Line and already a National Championship!

Jun 09, 2011 No Comments by

Pro-Line had two new tires last weekend at ROAR Fuel Nationals. The first is a new 1:8 buggy tire dubbed “Blockade.” It is a bigger pin tire that falls somewhere between the Revolver 2.0 and the Holeshot. Ryan Cavalieri and Ty Tessmann were both seen running it on their buggies along with other Proline teammates. Proline’s Daniel Adams told me the tire was officially released on the 1st. It took only a matter of a few days to add a National Title to it’s credentials courtesy of Team Associated’s Ryan Cavalieri. Ryan was switching between Holeshots and Blockades throughout qualifying and practice. For the 60 minute main, he decided on running the new Blockade in M2 compound. His RC8b look hooked up for the entire main while many others were finishing on bald tires.

The other tire released was the Revolver 2.0 for truggy. I have ran the Revolver 2.0 quite a bit on my buggy lately and absolutely love it. Its a very easy tire to drive, has plenty of grip on hard pack or dusty surfaces, wears well and is very forgiving. I can’t wait to run this tire in truggy!

About the author

I started racing RC cars in the mid 90¹s and quickly developed a passion for the hobby. After a lengthy hiatus, nitro off-road racing got the best of me and I don¹t see myself taking another break anytime soon. I enjoy being behind my camera at races almost as much as being behind the wheel. When I'm not racing or writing about RC I stay very active playing hockey, soccer, biking, traveling as much as possible and of course, shooting tons of photos.
