Default Revolver Truggy tires?

When are these bad boys coming out? Last I seen were the prototypes but it's been quite a while now. So what's the deal? I know a couple of tracks that would be great for them.

I think they would get more back if they redesigned the foams they use as well as keep up with some of the tire trends.. i know they have a couple of new ones shown in mags and being tested that seem to be working.. but Proline takes forever to get the new good stuff on the market.

They are in the works. Pro line has to get a new machine to be able to make them.
Calibers for truggy are coming too. In the VTR size I believe.

New Blue molded foams are on the way....they appear to be very similar to the AKA's from the pics ive seen....they just look like the same density kinda.

found em

+1 I heard somewhere(maybe a mag?) that the new blue foams are a ground type of foam just like the AKA's. It's kinda a follow or fail type of deal. AKA really took it to the next level with thier foams(tires too).

Now if only AKA would make a softer foam.

I actually like the super stiff foam. It makes everything much more consistant. All you have to do is adjust your suspension setup to fit the harder foam.

A new foam is in the works but of all the companies pro-line takes the least amount of time to get new products to market. just look at the revolver it was first used at the worlds and then 2 weeks later tower hobbies had a full shipment. thats how they have always been but yes there are some things that take longer and every company has that

Im pretty sure its not a follow or fail deal. aka foam is very good dont get me wrong but im pretty sure its not the next best thing since slice bread
