Pro-Line Racing have introduced the new Resistor 2.2” MC compound tire for 2WD Buggy and 4WD Buggy. Based on the crazy popular carcass shape of the Electron tire combined with the futuristic directional tread design of the Positron, the new Resistor front takes performance up another level with improved steering and traction on indoor clay tracks. The tread design of the new Resistor tire pays homage to the Positron for a familiar Pro-Line signature look and each bar has been positioned and angled for maximum race performance. The Resistor is directional, which adds another tuning option for the racers always looking for that extra edge since it will perform differently depending on which direction it is run.
