    Who is using Proline Mashers on their Summit? How do you like them?

    Im currently using proline trenchers and not a huge fan of them in the snow. Back in the summer I had the trencher x's and loved them. Thinking of getting the mashers and was wondering how you like them? I was a big fan of the original T-Maxx tires and growing up around farm machinery I like the tred of the mashers so was thinking of trying them. I may be selling my trenchers with my axial beadlocks after 30 minutes of use.

    What did you think of those beadlocks? As far as fitment goes. Would you get them again? When I get a lil extra cheddar I'll probably try the baja claw, but not sure of wheels yet.
    Wife says I have too may RC's I disagree!!

    You need to broke-in your slipper clutch before doing that, the same on the brushed motor for longer life.

    Never really hear Masher's mentioned anymore because Trenchers seem to be the king of the hill these days. The snow will pack into the Masher's v-groove as well though. For snow running I've seen some youtube videos of summits really ripping using the sling shots (paddles). In my experience,...snow and sand running really requires paddles. That is if you want to have max fun.

    I've got them and so far I love them more then expected. Sand, mud, gravel, pavement, water and surprisingly really good on rocks and moss. They dig quite good imo with good stabilty. I haven't had the opportunity to try them in snow cause we had none this year, they seem to be the tires that I use most these day. So there a up from me.
    Here's one of my rock test with them.

    Cheers

    Some serious vert on that one rock, nice!!! I was thinking your suspension was a little low for crawling. But after that vert maybe the lcg kept you from flipping back.

    Hey guys, back from the dark side of RC helis.

    Just picked up a mint Summit from a local guy and having a blast with it.

    Based on that video I just picked up a set of the mashers. If they do well with the summit, I may get a set for the EMaxx...

    Congrat's on your purchases, I dont think that you will be disappointed, money well spent imo. I wouldn't mind purchasing a set of Trenchers some day. The 1st thing I'd do with them would be to cut out all the smaller tred on the out side of the tires, just to get a little better dig from them. I think I have a tire fetish, lol.

    3.8" Mashers with Traxxas style bead, I mount them onto some Traxxas Geode wheels.
