A cheap Brown bag Spec tire for club racing no advertising no fancy bag just $20 for 4 mounted spec tires. It would help the hobby and the tracks with more racers at a club level.

Now that man is thinking! That would make a movement to improve the market by keeping/bringing more to it.

I think it is becoming very clear as to what Pro-Line needs to do now.

Closed cell buggy inserts that are not so hard, & tires that dont have that super annoying lip that you have to trim from the molding process

In general - try to make all your products cheaper, you will sell more and reap the benefits in the end - shops will be able to stock more of your stuff due to price too

I have 3 sets of brand 'new' Proline tyres/wheels and Paid 20 per set 2nd hand - my kind of price for a set of tyres considering their life.

When word gets out that your stuff is cheap, others will be more inclined to buy it, there will be lots of talk about it on forums etc and you'll be recommended by others and the busiest people in RC!

Price is the most important factor for most customers alongside value for money (lifespan) - just my thoughts here...

I would really like thicker lexan. I only have one proline body that hasnt gave and its on my 4x4 slash. Its the first release of the ford body when they were thick. Now no body lasts, ive owned nearly all proline bodys for slash and multiple buggys. I am very impressed by there desighns but they just dont last that long anymore.

With about 4 pages on the topic of PL prices on their tires, Here is a post to add on to that. I too would really like to see a price drop and I really like the idea of a special spec brown bag tire.
