Default Pro-line new tire!

Saw it today in action, ridiculous! I heard they are going to release info on it next week. I talked to the driver using it and he said it worked very very good I wanted to take a picture but wasn't allowed but it's so far different of a tread pattern then anything iv ever seen it has a big stopsign pattern circle with 2 pins inside it's a very crazy looking tire and I can't wait to try it. Look out for it soon it's deffinently better then the caliber from watching it.

Default Sorry to hear you had a negative experience...

I've had issues at least twice in the past year with PL products. They (Jessica, in particular) were on point for me. The most recent, this past Nov I think it was, I won a set of bug tires. One package had one Crime and one Bow. Sent an email, received a reply that day. They replaced the package at no charge, including returning it to them.

Be on the lookout for the new Compound. Yea, they are coming out with M4 compound, which will be softer then m3. Cant wait to test it out.

I've sworn off using Pro-Line products after they made us run their crap foams for so many years....All of their 'innovations' have been copies of other companies ideas.

Losi thought up the LPR wheel size with the 8ight T. AKA came up with ground foam inserts and soft compounds that actually last. VP-Pro came up with the "V3" wider rear buggy tires.

It makes me wonder if these companies hadn't been around would we still be running MAXX sized tires with horrible inserts? It took a company like AKA for Pro-Line to step up their game.

I will admit that I have been tempted to get a set of VTR calibers but I'd rather support a company like AKA which is always innovating instead of just maintaining the status quo.

actually this new tire is nothing like anything on the market, first of its kind, i have seen a couple spys, who have kept them in tire bags until his heat was up but when your on your lid on the track you get a good look.

these things are going to be awesome.

competition is good for the market, you cant say any one company can win the worlds, with the driver these days, its anyones game

like josh alton said live last night on live rc, Jesse, Ty, and Hara, are all on par with eachother, and Hot bodies TQ ever round of the pro warm ups and Ty tessmann had 4 of those, its just a matter of who finds that set up/tune/tire/groove FIRST!

just get your facts straight proline is on top no matter how much you hate them.....

I didn't mean to come off as 'I hate Pro-Line'. I know that they are making some very good products now...Like I said I have been tempted to pick up a set of Calibers.

They just left a bad taste in my mouth after their crappy unbalanced, shreds in two quals tire foam of a few years ago and it's going to take a lot to earn my respect and my business back.
