Thumbs up What would you like to see from Pro-Line in 1:8 Buggy and Truggy?

Hello Everyone

Just starting a thread seeing what everyone would like to see, tire and body wise from Pro-Line in the future for 1:8 scale buggy and truck. This is an Idea thread, not promising that any of this will happen. It is more or less seeing what the demand of the 1:8 consumers are.

Thank you for your time and interest!

Fioroni already did that. Not too many people use them.

More consistent closed cell foams (specifically VTR truggy). Generally speaking, there seems to be some issue with getting ProLine closed cell foams the same size from batch to batch. When that's taken care of, how about putting them in the VTR premounts as standard equipment?

I also agree that a few more truggy tread choices would be appreciated. I'd love to see a Recoil VTR...

I agree...stronger Bulldog body for truggies. Best body out there, but seems to crack pretty easy.

Definitely, I've been waiting for a bowtie crimefighter tread in truggy since they came out with the VTR , caliber is ok but some tracks call for the larger lugs imo...
