There’s always something new being molded, machined, vacu-formed, or stitched at Pro-Line HQ, and the latest batch of gear includes plenty of race-worthy Lexan, scale stuff, and a fresh lid for your dome. PL supplies the shell for Associated’s hot T5M mid-motor truck and you can now get the Bulldog body separately. There’s a new […]
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. Complete with brain-melting soundtrack!
Says Pro-Line, “This is the new Ford Raptor PRO-MT body (3440-00).” Also, Happy St. Patricks Day. Or St. Patrick’s night, it’s getting late. Anyhoo, expect this to be another good-lookin’ body from Pro-Line with overspray film, window masks, and decals. You how they do.
The TLR factory drivers are all piloting the new 22T 2.o at the Cactus Classic and the stadium trucks are looking impressive with good corner speed and stable handling. I was able to get a sneak peak under the hood of TLR’s Dakotah Phend’s new 22T 2.0 that should be available for sale very soon. […]
Short-course trucks have enjoyed great popularity over the past few years, but many feel that could be changing. With many modern tracks seeing higher and higher grip, driving a short-course truck with their inherent characteristic of rolling and swaying makes them hard to drive when there is already an abundance of traction.

Team Durango displayed their new lineup coming out in early April of 2015. The new Durango vehicles are only a tease and I wasn’t able to look under their hoods, but they are all new platforms and not just a new freshening up of older models. The DNX8 is their 1/8-scale nitro buggy and I […]
The F1 scene has been heating up with new releases lately, not the least of which is Sepent’s newest entry to the scene. The F110 SF2 is typically top-notch, as you can see by just looking at the pics below. Ride height is adjustable to suit rubber or foam tires, neither of which are included. […]
At any big race, tires are always a hot topic and this year’s Cactus Classic is no different. What usually takes racers a lot of elbow grease and tire-tuning knowledge to craft sets perfectly suited for the track, has been circumvented by the introduction of production slicks. Pro-Line, JConcepts and AKA are at the event […]

Traxxas Slash and Slash 4×4 have a new body to help liven up their rigs. JConcepts’ new Ford Atlas shell has all the cool vibe of the big, full-size truck. Starting with the oversized grill, the body continues to impress with a split headlight design and edgy hood detail bulks around the fenders to provide […]
Good news if you’re looking for Axial wheel options: Pro-Line will soon have a new version of the Faultline Bead-Loc wheel with a 6-lug hub, which makes it perfect for the Yeti, Spawn, Wraith Poison Spyder Edition, and just about anything else with a 6-lug setup. According to Pro-Line, the rims also offer improved grip […]
We’re already fans of the MT-4S (see our review in the November 2014 issue), but in “40th Anniversary” mode it’s especially attractive. In addition to the standard MT-4S good stuff (see long list below), the anniversary model includes a custom steering wheel, “piano black” finish, RX-472 SSL receiver plus a special-edition RX-471 receiver, and a […]
