This is basically a bulletproof version of the stampede 4x4. Nice.

I’ll most like end up going with a pro 4 setup. Should be plenty of power but also keeps the weight down (2s instead of 4s), etc.

A 1/8 setup on this will be a grenade on wheels haha. Should be fun none the less!

I've always wondered what the relationship between Pro-Line and Traxxas is. Pro-Line models are hopped up Traxxas models, or borrow heavily from them. Traxxas is crazy insane about this, so Pro-Line definitely has an agreement in place. The question is, why does Traxxas allow it?

I can't imagine Pro-Line sells big volume, nor for thinking it would be extremely beneficial to Traxxas. Very interesting.....

I'm running a pro4 4000kv motor on 2s in my slash 4x4 monster truck. The truck weighs 6 lb 14 oz and that motor just rips in that truck. Plenty of power on 2s. A pro4 on 2s will be more than enough power for this little Proline truck.

I wonder if this will trigger proline to release 17mm brawlers or 3.8 destroyers (or at lease 2.8 destroyers that are as big as the 2.6 destroyers).

We have a 2WD Proline MT in the shop that we have abused for years, I can say that I have literally owned at least one of all the major MT's out there and the 2WD Proline has been hands down my favorite. No other truck makes it back from a bashing session in running condition more than that truck. I do credit part of that due to the fact that it is a 2WD and therefore has a lot less to break, but the build quality and design is so good on these trucks. I have no doubt this will be an awesome little truck and I'm sure we'll have one in the fleet soon. Looks like a great match for a HobbyStar Pro4 motor.

See the attached. I think it's really cool that Pro-Line put this together for us...

Actually now that I think about it that might be why they killed the pro mt? This 4x4 seems to be a new truck from the ground up... Nothing to do with Traxxas.

Stubby little beast. Reminds me of my HPI Savage XS on steroids.

this thing looks unbreakble. A 4274 sized motor should fit in this thing right?
