Pro-Line 1981 Ford Bronco SC Body Official Release

Pro-Line 1981 Ford Bronco SC Body Official Release

We brought you the scoop on this back on February 11 when we spotted a photo Pro-Line’s Ty Tessmann shared while practicing and testing. Well, now it’s official. The Bronco is listed as a 1981 (Ford had this body style from 1980 to 1986) and is part of their True Scale lineup. While we love […]

Pro-Line Ford F-150 Raptor SVT SC Body Precut and Pre-painted

We love Pro-Line’s True Scale spin on some of its body lineup. On a related note, we love that Pro-Line has made getting a new look on your short course truck so easy. Let’s face it, painting isn’t everyone’s favorite task. Pro-Line’s Ford F-150 Raptor SVT short course body is now available a precut and […]

Pro-Line Interco TSL SX Super Swamper SC (Short Course) Tires

Pro-Line Interco TSL SX Super Swamper SC (Short Course) Tires

We think Pro-Line is right on the money with these tires for two very big reasons. One, not everyone who has a short course truck races and wants race tires. Adding another general off-road tire to the mix is great–doubly great when it has real scale appeal. Second, Traxxas’s new Telluride 4X4 creates a real […]

Pro-Line Racing Prototype Ford Bronco

Pro-Line Racing Prototype Ford Bronco

Yes, please. It’s a Bronco and we dig it. During a test session, Pro-Line unveiled a prototype Ford Bronco short course body. It is patterned after the third generation Bronco body style that ran from 1980 to 1986. This Bronco was the first Bronco to feature an independent front suspension (Twin Traction Beam or TTB) […]

Project Split Personalty Short Course Basher And Racer

Project Split Personalty Short Course Basher And Racer

This is a story of transformations, rebirth, second chances, rebuilding and ultimately new beginnings (yes, use your inner deep movie trailer voice while reading that). No, it’s not a Nicholas Sparks novel tuned into a Hollywood melodrama. I’m talking about a Traxxas Rustler stadium truck that was once reconfigured into a monster truck, bashed at […]

What I Love About RC Racing

What I Love About RC Racing

I write these Commentaries because, well, a lot of people click on them, so somebody must like them. The problem is these Commentary articles are essentially our online version of an editorial and, like real editorials, they can be a little, well, negative. Editorials are opinion pieces and we tend to have something to say on a […]

How To Avoid Getting Hacked

How To Avoid Getting Hacked

So, your short course race was ruined by a hack. It happens. As much as I try to tell other drivers (and myself) that the hacking is more frustration-fueled imagination than deliberate, malicious crashing, the fact remains that there are some clean racers and a whole lot more not-so-clean racers. So, how do you deal […]

5 Reasons You’re Not Winning

You didn’t win? Again?! You’re foot-stomping mad and about ready to spike your transmitter like you just scored a game-winning touchdown–only in rage. While we wait for the whambulance, let’s take a look at what you’re doing wrong. Yes, I said you’re doing something wrong. I’m not your kindergarten teacher or your mom–it’s all on […]

Pro-Line EVO Short Course Truck Body

Pro-Line EVO Short Course Truck Body

Now, we’re getting serious. Pro-Line’s new EVO body is clearly aimed at racing. The EVO SC body is designed with a hard-to-miss aggressive sloped nose, which Pro-Line states keeps as much air as possible from getting under the hood. The nose, combined with vent holes, decreases the dreaded parachute effect. The improved front down-force also […]

If […]

Pro-Line Racing 1966 Ford F-150 Hay Hauler Short Course Truck Body

Pro-Line Racing 1966 Ford F-150 Hay Hauler Short Course Truck Body

We don’t just like it, we love it! Lot of respect for the classics. Built for short course trucks, the Pro-Line 1966 Ford F-150 is the same style as the Hay Hauler Class 8 truck that Robby Gordon (and others) raced in the desert in the ’80′s.    Like other Pro-Line shells, the 1966 Ford […]
