  • JConcepts New Release – Scorpios SCT Tires

    3 comments - Apr 17 2015 09:13 PM

    JConcepts unveils an all new SCT all-terrain tire from their design department. The Scorpios, scale looking tread and tough realistic profile, jump out as the most obviously features. Starting by analyzing the tread, the design team focused on a closely knit tread arranging them in a pattern closely resembling a 1:1 scale tire. The padded arrangement of tread makes the tire ideal for transitioning from the hard road to dirt and then into rocky and uneven terrain. Once power is applied to the vehicle, the tread spacing opens up which allows for some deep digging making it a great working tire in dirt and muddy conditions!

  • Pro line Enforcer clear body for the Tekno NT48

    0 comments - Apr 17 2015 08:43 PM

    Attention All Tekno Fans! Pro-Line has a brand new aftermarket Truggy body that is way more durable and better looking than stock: The Enforcer! From the mind of Ty Tessmann and inspired from the success of the Type-Rbuggy 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.


    Bring your truck up to speed with Pro-Line’s new Enforcer body! This is a must have item for the new racing season!
