Pro-Line’s latest Lexan and rubber get a shakedown cruise in this clip, which shows the Chevy Silverado body and Flat Iron 1.9″ XL G8 Rock Terrain Truck Tires with Memory Foam on Denali 1.9″ Bead-Loc 8-spokes mounted up on an Axial SCX10 Trail Honcho and doing their thing.

We’re RC Car Action and this is not a car, but c’mon, it’s awesome. You either like this, or you’re wrong. Amazing Return of the Jedi speeder bike that flies (’cause it’s actually a quad copter).
