Pro-Line To Offer Short-Wheelbase “Indoor” Chassis For Pro-2

Apr 16, 2014 No Comments by

When I reviewed the Pro-Line PRO-2 for the cover story of our February issue I raved about the truck’s stability in the open desert, and how that composure led to me drive aggressively on the racetrack as well. My SoCal cohort Joel Navarro and I have logged plenty of race time with our PRO-2 test truck since the review, and though the tremendous traction is terrific we both often wish for a bit more steering at the local indoor facility. Without even asking, Pro-Line sent along this teaser image and a few bullet points about an optional chassis plate that shortens the truck’s wheelbase by 8mm!

Pro-Line supplied this shot of the stock and optional chassis laying side-by-side, showing how the 8mm reduction in length comes at the front of the chassis – which should increase steering across the board.

  • 8mm shorter wheelbase for improved agility and turning
  • 3mm thick hard anodized 7075-T6 aluminum
  • Improved weight distribution for indoor conditions
  • Direct fit on PRO-2
  • Ideal for tight indoor conditions

I can’t wait to take the new -8mm chassis for a spin on our track, and since it’ll bolt right onto the PRO-2 truck it should fit any Pro-Line equipped Traxxas Slash trucks as well. Hooray for more steering!

Associate Editor Since receiving my first hobby-grade RC car as a holiday present from my father nearly 20 years ago, I've been fortunate enough to meet more people and experience more opportunities through the adventures I've had in the RC industry than I would've ever imagined. I've done it all - from working at a hobby shop, to being a factory sponsored racer, to working for some of the biggest brands in the industry. I've enjoyed each and every one of the dozens of kits I've built, hundreds of events I've attended, and thousands of laps that I've logged at race tracks around the world, and my passion is to share those experiences with other hobbyists so that they may find fulfillment in their own RC careers.
