I have to agree with integra, and he is only really telling the truth. I have a bunch of pro-line bow-ties that started getting bald in the middle after a weekend. You should really go with AKAs. They have far better wear and traction than pro-lines. The only pro-lines that I like are holeshots since I race on a blue-groove track, but I'd rather run AKA's.

It sucks sometimes if everything is not perfect we cant finish a race..I raced club last Saturday and my steering servo wire wiggled free and got sliced by my spur gear, which shorted my RX and caused my battery pack to burst into flames..I got it out of my car just before it ignited, but my day was over, never even made it to the main..what a pain in the butt this hobby is..I would have quit a long time ago if it wasn't so much fun............

The bowties in m3 do where out quick....but the m2 last and are better on dry tracks...m3 on wet...and they last a bit longer

Not sure yet, i am in the process of rewiring everything ..in the meantime I dropped in my backup RX and servo's..we'll see..I thought it was my new Stickman pack that fried everything, but it turned out to be my fault. I never secured the servo wire after my rebuild..what an ass....
