Default Proline 8099 Truck Squared Fuzzie Being Discountinued.

If you guys havent noticed it's not on their website and all distributor's are now out of them.
Proline decided to discountinue the sales of this tire due to dropping sales.
If your track like mine ONLY uses this tire due to being dirt instead of all clay then please send a NICE comment to proline about how you need this tire.
Proline doesnt have any other tire in their line up for hard packed surfaces.
The Holeshot works when wet but when it dries the ONLY tire that works is the Square.

Just letting everyone know.

Drift,
Thanks for the link but it doesnt do much.
Problem is the heading doesnt say WHICH TIRE and they said Holeshots were Discountinued as well which is NOT TRUE.
I dont like people to be miss informed or mislead.

I would have posted this Monday which would have been BEFORE the other thread was started but I wanted to talk to someone at Proline in PERSON before posting.
I do this so I can back up what I say and know it's FACT instead of going on Rumors or He Said,She Said type conversations.
How is the weather down under?

Larry,
No biggy.I was just letting people know.
If you goto prolineracing.com and then click proline,then click products and look under 1:10 truck tires you will see the holeshot.
Goodluck up In Enid.

Thanks,Les

Thats a shame. Does proline have any tires they suggest to try instead? Anything from Panther or Losi that works almost as well?

Cain,
Here's the funny thing.
The tire that compares to it losi wise is the Losi Pink Taper.
Well guess what other tire is RARE as hell right now.lol.
I am going to try some panther's out and see how they work out.

Les,

That sucks. I would be in some serious trouble then down by you as I can't make a set of tires to save my life and I would want to do 4wd, so its a double wammy if fuzzies were still being used.

Hopefully the panthers work out.

Give the panther Stinger, Wookie, or Switch a try. They all work pretty well wherever a Taper or Square works.

the panther super soft switches are what you will want. if it is very cool out like 55 and lower go with the clay compound in the switches. all the way around. for the front on 2wh and 4wh the bobcat in the same compounds. if your local shops dont have them, they are very easy to order direct from.
