New pre-cut Flo-Tek Fusion SCT body from Proline

Ok, I know most everybody is watching the AFL Grand Final, but I am looking at RC news, more interesting in my mind, but I know most disagree.

Anyway, to the news and proline have bred their Evo Short Course Truck body with their Flo-Tek bodies to get their new Flo-Tek Fusion body.  Looks good, and the Flo-Tek bodies really do help stop short course trucks parachuting on jumps, so it is nice to have another SCT body option!

New Fugitive tyre from Proline

I must admit this tyre caught my attention, and not because it was new or yet another buggy tyre.

It caught my attention because it was designed not to grip the best, look the coolest or work in one specific set of conditions, but because it was designed to last longer than any other tyre that proline has produced before.  Available in a range of compounds, as well as pre mounted, this is what Proline have to say about them:

Pro-Line is putting the competition on the Run with the all-new Fugitive race tire! The Fugitive was developed to be the longest lasting race tire ever produced while still being quick and agile. In the past, the prevailing knowledge for creating a new tire that lasted throughout the long A-Mains in extreme wear conditions was to design a big and tall tire tread that was spaced out. While this was effective for the day, the tall and stiff tread numbed out the handling and didn’t have the speed of the smaller pin race tires.

Pro-Line’s all-new Fugitive tires set the standard for wear and performance with a whole new design philosophy – small, tightly packed pins that can handle the abuse of being run on concrete. When combined with Pro-Line’s incredible X-Compounds, the Fugitive easily has the best performance to cost ratio of any Pro-Line tire making it perfect for many European style tracks.

Be the first one outrunning the competition with the Fugitive!

RC in the Mainstream – Aaron Hess on a Monster Truck Freestyle Course

It’s pretty rare to see RC in the mainstream, be it at events, or in the media in one form or another. This is the reason  I was surprised when my local Radio Station, Chilli 90.1 FM, came on board as the naming sponsor for my club’s major race for the year. 

However today Proline posted some photos and information on a display some of it’s drivers did at the Mega Promotions Monster Truck Tour at RWR Rodeo Arena in Denison,Texas.  I’ve reposted below what transpired and how popular they were with the crowd.

ARON HESS ATTACKS THE MONSTER TRUCK FREESTYLE COURSE

MTBUGGY

We were entertaining a crowd of around 2,000 spectators during intermission of Mega Promotions Monster Truck Tour at RWR Rodeo Arena in Denison,Texas.

We gathered up a lot of our RC friends to put on this show along with fellow P-L teammates Aaron Royston,  Mark Santa Maria and Bo Brock.

We were asked to go out before the show started to allow the ticket lines to enter the arena. We stole the show right from the start with big air soaring over the crushed cars on the arena floor. The crowd was very loud letting it be known that they loved what we were doing.

TRUGGGGYY

Intermission came and we went on. The crowd was once again very vocal with all the whips and flips avoiding all the carnage that the Monster Trucks had left behind. The fans were coming to our pit areas looking over our equipment as we were answering a lot of their questions. This was a lot of fun.

TRUGGYYYYYYYTRUGGYYYYYMTRUGGGY

We have two more shows lined up in Baytown,TX and Lawton, OK. We are looking forward to these next two shows. We have 5 more shows already lined up for 2015 as well. If we are putting on show in your area feel free to come join in as we try to move forward with a different venue in the RC Community.

Thanks to all my sponsors and anyone that contributed to help put this show on. We have lots of crazy stunts planned in the near future as we entertain these rowdy crowds bringing them closer to the RC Industry.
