    I have two sets on my t maxxes always liked them. Needed some tires I can bash and come out of the mountains and hit the streets without tearing them up!
    Yes its the prographix with pearl blue and true blue backed with silver
    The rims are their black chrome. Looks pretty chrome to me!

    Yeah if thats black chrome I can't imagine what chrome is like. It'd probably blind you! lol I'm thinking about getting a prographixs got a slipstream with my revo but cutting it out alone is becoming a major pain. My patience is running short.

    It was nice just spraying it and no cutting or striping!
    I thought the rims would have more of a black tint. Was just trying to change things up. I have 3 sets of the chrome Already!

    Can you tell much of a difference between the black chrome and chrome?

    from your pics it looks like they have a tint to them but not much, wish they we're darker, I've seen black chrome before and that is not black chrome. lol, now I know proline has no idea what black chrome is. From the pic it looks like black chrome has a little less shine...

    Seems like they don't shine as much, they are clean so they do shine good but the chrome still seems to look a bit shiner to me. It could just be the angle but from what I can tell chrome one is shiner. You've also made me really want those. Lol.

    These are supposed to be black chrome too, first thing i thought then i received them was, if this is black chrome, what does normal chrome look like :s. But I really like the look .

    Nice truck!
    I balanced the tires too. One took 10.2 grams! The other three needed 8.6g each
    Definitely a darker tint!

    Hm, that doenst seem right, lol.
    Badlands should be a little higher than stock wheels to according to pro-line, but they seem the same height, so i think we can conclude from this 2 things:
    - Pro-line does not know what black chrome is
    - Pro-line does not know how to use a ruler

    Could you post some pics of how you mounted the braces and rods for the sway bars using the hot racing rockers?? Did you drill anything?? Did you use the spacers that were supplied

    I have since switched to tekno sway bars because of the roll cage but no drilling. On the rear I used the middle hole for the sway bar and for the front depending on the size of the pushrods you might need to shim. Stock thin rods bolt right up
    Only thing to remember is with the hot racing multi point mounting. You should run the same settings front and back so I would try the last hole for the rear sway bar and middle for the shock

    I explained it to you in your thread....

    EDIT: Think it was someone else

    So the different mounting spots have to do with ride height. The Higher the ride heigh the more ground clearance and less handling so the one closest to the middle of the chassis is the highest which would be good if your only off road, the one in the middle is good just for all around use and if your only on the street choose the farthest from the middle of the chassis. Thos also change how much suspension travel you have the highest the most travel.
