Our Favorite Pro-Line Parts For the Traxxas X-MaxxKicking off the five of our favorite Pro-Line parts for the Traxxas X-Maxx is this stunning-looking Pro-Line 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor body. The aggressive scale detail that Pro-Line expertly executed helps to make this officially licensed body stand out from others. It is complete with the bold and tough body styling that makes the Raptor look so cutting edge. Mating this Raptor body to the awesome X-Maxx is a perfect pairing.

What helps to make this body one of our picks is that it comes out of the packaging already pre-cut for you and there is no painting required. The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is one of the bodies that was given the Pro-Line Tough-Color treatment. This means that the material, named Tough-Color Black, was used to mold this body. The black color is all the way through the Tough-Color material so you won’t have to worry about painting the body or be concerned when your truck has an impact because there is no paint to chip off. Since the body comes pre-cut and molded in black, all you have to do is apply the included high-quality stickers and install the stock Traxxas parts for the body latching system.

Masher X HP Mounted Belted Tires | PRO1017610


Our Favorite Pro-Line Parts For the Traxxas X-MaxxTires are a crucial part of any vehicle and having a high-quality set, especially for a vehicle like the Traxxas X-Maxx that has gobs of power and a suspension setup to tackle serious off-road terrain, can make all the difference in the world. With that being said, we selected these Pro-Line Masher X HP mounted belted tires which is their highest performance tire and wheel combo they have ever conceived.

The Masher tire name is not new to Pro-Line and they have become known as the standard when it comes to chevron monster truck style tread. The “X” designation it the name lets you know that they are not ordinary Masher tires. Pro-Line tweaked the design by adding futuristic tread and sidewall detail while making the tire low profile. This will make your truck look even tougher than before and more capable on many surfaces. They have unmatched grip on dirt, grass, gravel and even on the street. That is not all. Considering that these tires were purpose-built for massive, high-power monster trucks, Pro-Line made them belted to handle extreme power and high speeds with ease. The belts inside of the tire keep the tire from ballooning to retain full control when at high speeds.

Pro-Line mounted the Masher X tires on their Raid 5.7” multi-spoke wheels. This combination has been developed from the ground up to be lightweight and durable enough to handle the extreme capabilities of the X-Maxx. The wheels features a 24mm hex with the standard 1/5-scale through-hole which will fit most 1/5-scale vehicles. If you do not add the Pro-Line Performance HD 1/5 Axle Conversion mentioned above, you are still in luck. The Masher X HP mounted tires includes machined aluminum wheel washers so that they can fit on the X-Maxx.
