Pro-Line’s new weapon – Desert Eagle

Transform your short course truck into a fire-breathing, road-crushing 1970’s muscle car with the all-new Pro-Line Desert Eagle body! Featuring incredible details like a supercharged V8 rising out of the hood, zoomie side pipes and twin roof & deck spoilers, the Desert Eagle is sure to turn heads whether you’re out bashing or at the track.

The Desert Eagle lets you deck out your SC truck in two completely different styles:

Use the desert grunge style decals to create a post-apocalyptic war machine complete with gnarly off-road tires (see below), light bars, jacked up rear body posts, or whatever else your imagination can conjure up.
If dirt and grunge aren’t your style, outfit your ride like the muscle car of your dreams. Use the included street rod style decals, slam the body posts down and tackle the street with 2.8” wheels (see below).

Bring some muscle to your SC: get your Pro-Line Desert Eagle today!
