Default Proline Pro-MT 4x4 1:10 Monster Truck



https://www.prolineracing.com/kits/p...-built-roller/

This is a PRO-MT 4x4 1:10 4WD Monster Truck Pre-Built Roller. Extreme. Durable. Performance.

The PRO-MT 4x4 was designed and built from the ground up to be the most Extreme 1:10 Monster Truck ever created while delivering the Durability and Performance you have come to expect from Pro-Line. Pro-Line has over 35 years of experience making the highest quality and best performing accessories and we used that experience to create the ultimate Go Anywhere – Do Anything 4x4 Monster Truck. Bashing has never been so good! The PRO-MT 4x4 has race-bred DNA similar to 1:8 Race Buggies for expectation shattering Performance combined with Extreme Durability.

The PRO-MT 4x4 comes as a Pre-Built Roller, so you just install your own electronics by following the included Instruction Manual, paint your body with your favorite paint job, and Go Have Fun! If you are ready to graduate up from the Ready-to-Run vehicles that currently occupy the 1:10 Monster Truck market and you want true next-level Performance the PRO-MT 4x4 is the truck for you. The PRO-MT 4x4 does not include electronics, paint or the tools required to operate or maintain the truck.

The PRO-MT 4x4 is unlike any other Monster Truck available because it was designed from the ground up to have the highest quality components and the best performance right out of the box. No need to spend tons of money on upgrades like all the other trucks available… the PRO-MT 4x4 has the upgrades you need already included making it the best value for the money! Every part of this 1:10 Monster Truck was designed from Day 1 to handle today’s extreme brushless power systems, including insane 1:8 Motor Systems and 4S LiPo Power. This has never been done in a truck of this size and Pro-Line is proud to bring it to you! Read below for more details on specific features.

ALUMINUM & STEEL BI-METAL CHASSIS
Durability meets Performance with Pro-Line’s PRO-MT 4x4 Aluminum & Steel Bi-Metal Chassis. The full length 3mm thick Gun-Metal Anodized 6061 T6 Aluminum Chassis combines with a 3mm thick Hardened Steel Spine extending from the Center Diff to the Rear Diff for Maximum Chassis Stiffness and Durability.

FRONT/REAR & CENTER SEALED DIFFERENTIALS
The Transmission is the Heart of any vehicle and the PRO-MT 4x4’s heart is based on Race Proven Technology. Each Diff can be tuned with different weight oils and the Internal Diff Gears are all Steel construction. The 3 Diff setup ensures that Power is always being sent to the wheels and is not being robbed by a traditional slipper. Oversized Ball Bearings are used throughout for free spinning operation.

HUGE 16MM BIG BORE SHOCKS
The PRO-MT 4x4 comes standard with Huge 1:8 Size 16mm Big Bore Shocks that take on any terrain. The shock bodies are Gun Metal Anodized CNC machined Aluminum and threaded for precision ride height adjustment. The shock internals feature a single X-Ring seal, Delrin Pistons & Shafts Guides, and Hard Chrome Coated Shock Shafts just like our high end race style Pro-Spec Shocks!

MOD 1 GEARS FOR EXTREME 1:8 POWER
Pro-Line chose 1:8 style MOD 1 size gears for the PRO-MT 4x4 to achieve the absolute maximum in gear tooth durability. The Front/Rear Ring & Pinion Gears are made from High Strength Hardened Steel using the latest in manufacturing technology. The PRO-MT 4x4 gears are insanely Strong!

ALUMINUM MOTOR MOUNT SYSTEM

Pro-Line has developed an easy-to-use CNC machined Aluminum Motor Mount System. Designed to fit both 1:10 and 1:8 motors, it pre-sets the gear mesh for you while preventing the motor from shifting during use. The gear mesh is set using the included chassis inserts for the pinion gear you plan to use.

FRONT PIVOT BALL SUSPENSION
The front suspension features hardened steel Pivot Balls with Delrin Pivot Inserts that devour hits from all angles. Extra thick upper and lower control arms are designed to take a beating and are mounted to Aluminum Arm Mounts with Plastic Hinge Pin Inserts similar to 1:8 Race Buggies. Front and Rear Sway Bars come standard and Lock Nuts are used everywhere possible to prevent screws from backing out!

EASY ACCESS DIFFS
Easy access to all 3 Diffs was an important design goal that was achieved on the PRO-MT 4x4. The center Diff is easily removed by just 4 screws, while the Front & Rear only require the removal of the bumpers and Diff Covers. Working on the PRO-MT 4x4 could not be easier!

PRECISION STEERING
The PRO-MT 4x4 comes standard with an Adjustable Servo Saver similar to 1:8 Race Buggies and an Aluminum Center Drag Link for Precise Control even during extreme Bash Sessions. The Steering rides on huge Ball Bearings and the Servo Saver can be easily adjusted with the included 17mm Wheel Wrench.

BALANCED WEIGHT DISTRIBUTION
Balanced weight distribution is critical for ideal handling. The unique PRO-MT 4x4 chassis layout achieves near perfect 50/50 weight balance both Front to Rear and Side to Side. This truck will fly straighter and more controlled than any other Monster Truck you have ever driven!

BADLANDS MX28 TIRES WITH 17MM F-11 WHEELS
Pro-Line knows tires and we have included the Best of the Best with the PRO-MT 4x4. Super traction and Superior Wear Badlands MX28 tires provide performance on any terrain. The HUGE 17mm 1:8 size Aluminum wheel hexes prevent the F-11 wheels from stripping out even under immense power. And best of all they are Made in the USA!


Length: 18.0" (457mm)
Width: 14.0" (355mm)
Wheelbase: 11.2" (284mm)
Weight: with tires 5.7lbs. (2.6kg)

How is the quality? So you need servo, ESC, and motor?

Looks cool

I can only speak to the 2wd version I had.. but the quality on that was excellent. Reminded me a lot of the Tekno vehicles I ran.

Steel center spline is interesting, may not need a chassis brace. How has parts support been for their other cars?

Support seemed to be a problem. The trucks got nothing but positive reviews. But seemed to a hard to find.

This was from someone question the Proline teasers

Pro-Line car, but it looks like its going to be a bad ass monster truck with pillow ball suspension, 1/8 scale something that uses a lathe to make the parts(watch the teaser video). Here is my point- the PRO-MT was the basher of the year, and yes, it is bad ass, but wait, i cannot order one, because no one has them anymore! even worse, its hard to find the parts for the Pro-line cars! What happened Pro-Line, is the run over with? My point is that what ever you release on 10/14/17- you best have parts for it for a long time or least soon after it hits shelves.

It looks like a solid truck, but I was hoping for a longer wheelbase. 11.2" is a little small for a 4 x 4 monster truck in my opinion. If you put 1/8 scale power in this thing, it's going to spend some time on its lid for sure

i thought that too. seems short... but the good thing is that vast majority of truck bodies will fit this chassis

the best bigger monster-truggy chassis could be the tekno truggy with monster truck tires. but there are very few bodies that have the proper wheelbase

Very excited for this truck to hit the market! The 2wd Pro MT was one of the best Monster Trucks I had ever owned.
use the "share" and "embed " function from youtube

I noticed that the center diff is at the front of the truck. It's looks as if it's backwards from other truck set ups. I wonder what the benefit is for this?

What about the 2wd do you love? I've never driven one. I'm just curious as my most abused truck is my brushless 2wd ecx Ruckus.

This new truck does look well balanced and could be fun to drive. I'm a little skeptical.

It’s very durable. Easy to work on. Just a very fun truck that needs no upgrades
