Pro-Line Now Has a Stadium Truck (sort of)

Pro-Line Now Has a Stadium Truck (sort of)

Pro-Line’s PRO-2 SC short course truck, PRO-2 Buggy and PRO-MT monster truck aren’t being officially joined by a stadium truck (that we assume would be called the PRO-ST), but this build from Pro-Line’s Holeshot blog sure looks factory. It’s based on a modded PRO-MT, and the conversion is easy. There’s no telling if this could […]

New O.S. Speed B2101 Engine & TrakPower 12v Engine Heater

A new engine from O.S. and an engine heater from TrakPower? Sounds like a two-fer post to us… If you want to run the engine that won the 2014 Worlds under the command of Ty Tessmann, this is it. “B” is for Buggy, and the B2101 is O.S.’ best off-road mill with features that include […]

All I […]
Associated Announces Engine Sound System, XP LED Light Sets

Associated Announces Engine Sound System, XP LED Light Sets

Looks like artificial engine sounds will definitely be “a thing.” Team Associated just announced the ESS-One Engine Sound System, which is chassis-mounted and “”lets you choose from multiple throaty race engine sounds, shifting, brakes, and turbo blowoff valves.” Nice. The system is shown on Associated models, of course, but can be used in any application […]
