Pro-Line’s new ‘Enforcer’ truggy body

Enforcer

Pro-Line has a brand new Truck body style for Truggy racers: The Enforcer! From the mind of Ty Tessmann and inspired from the success of the Type-R buggy body, the Enforcer has a meaner and more angular front end look with swooping roof and bed sections for improved airflow and high-speed stability. The hood of the body is steeper to create more down force over the front wheels for more steering and faster lap times. Available for the Hot Bodies D8T, Mugen MBX-7T, and TLR 8IGHT-T 3.0.
