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

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

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!
