The new Pro-Line 1:8 Trifecta Lexan Wing brings a huge amount of weight savings to the highest part of your buggy and massively lowers your cars center of gravity. This results in faster corner speeds and reduces the chance of traction rolling when faced with high-bite track conditions.
The new Clear Lexan Wing is in stores now and can be found using Pro-Line Part# 6252-00. MSRP $21.21
The final video of the 2014 Pro-Line Racing and 5150 Productions theme of “bucket list races”, has been released and they are going full throttle at the 2014 “Pro-Line Cactus Classic” located in Scottsdale Arizona.
