King of the Streets 2021, the first major no-prep drag racing event, just wrapped up in Las Vegas and it was an incredible day of racing. It was supported by numerous manufacturers, there were over 250 entries and most notable of all was the chance to win an unbelievable $20,000-plus grand prize. No-prep drag racing is currently the popular segment in RC. One of the first movers was Pro-Line/PROTOform who started making bodes, wheels, tires and accessories specifically for no-prep drag racing. In fact, the winner of the King of the Streets, Clay Keates, ran Pro-Line Reaction SC tires and he topped off his unbeatable drag car with a PROTOform Corvette C7 Pro-Mod body. With so many people being drawn into this type of racing, we thought it was only fitting to show you the 9 killer no-prep drag racing bodies that is offered by Pro-Line/PROTOform.
