Wanted: Pro-Line’s tyres for ROAR Nats

Our friends at LiveRC.com have been informed by Pro-Line that entire shipment of tyres for their team drivers at this week’s ROAR Nationals has been lost in transit. Three pallets of products were shipped two weeks ago and if the shipping paperwork for the shipment has arrived, no actual shipment has arrived. Worse, the shipping carrier still does not know where are the pallets. Although Pro-Line Racing have been working vigorously to resolve the issue and prodive the a solution to their drivers, Pro-Line might have to let their drivers use other brands of tyres if the shipment was not found.

Pro-Line Slide Lock & Electroshot VTR pre-mounted tyres

See: Pro-Line

Pro-Line have introduced pre-mounted Slide Lock tyres for 1/8 buggy and pre-mounted ElectroShot VTR for Truggy. The Slide Lock is a unique tyre design that is made specifically for smooth, low grip tracks. The Slide Lock features a pattern of small, tightly packed hexagon and triangle shaped pins so you can lay down as much rubber as possible. The tread on the new Slide Lock is laid out wider across the tyre carcass for a flatter profile overall compared to other Pro-Line 1/8 tyres. Each hexagon pin has a deep sipe down the middle of the tread for added flex and grip on even the slickest of surfaces. The built-in tread flex means you can run harder compounds for longer wear and still have good traction when you need it. The large and stiff side pins reach far down the sidewall to reduce edginess as much as possible. The Slide Lock tyres is mounted on Velocity V2 wheels.

Pro-Line Slide Job 2.2″ Dirt Oval tyres

See: Pro-Line

Pro-Line have introduced the new Slide Job 2.2″ Dirt Oval tyres for buggy and Short Course vehicles. The Slide Job tread pattern design was inspired by the tires found in full-size Dirt Oval racing, so you can have realistic style and performance on your Sprint Cars, SC Mod or any 2.2″ Buggy Tyre application. To make it easy on race technical inspection during spec races, Pro-Line has molded in compound identifiers into the sidewall of each tyre. The Slide Job tyre features rounded side tread for consistent slide action that will not catch ruts and flip your car when you throw it up into the corner. The multi-block tread pattern creates great forward grip combined with long lasting and consistent performance that is easy on your pocket book. The Slide Job tyres are available in M4 (Super Soft) compound for the front and rear (buggy) and M3 (Soft) compound for Short Course.
