I have been following a few threads on here, and started the Proline Tubular roof rack thread. So now that I got all my goodies in the mail thought I would throw up a few photos for those that are interested in seeing what the combo or individual items look like.
I am so happy with the results. Adds a bit of scaler realism to the Summit that I was looking for. I realize the spare tire on the roof is wildly out of scale with the mudslingers but it is just there for effect. The Proline roof rack fits on top of the roof of the stock summit like a glove! Seems well built. Has holes to attach proline lights or just help you strap stuff to the rack. The tools you see up there are from proline accessory pack #2. Just used zip ties to strap them on. The rope you see is just household twine from Home Depot. The black rope holding the wheel on the rack is just the same household twine that I painted black. The wheel is a short course traxxas tire wheel combo off and old slash I have. The whole rack attaches with just four screws below so it is easy to take on and off depending on the kind of bashing you want to do. We'll see how the long term duribility goes I will report back here and chime in with more info. When this bad boy flips over there will be alot of weight coming down on that rack so we'll see how long it lasts.
As for the Proline F11 3.8 wheels I really like the look of them with the Mudslingers. Really adds that mean scaler tire look. Really increased the clearance of the truck. Haven't had a chance to crawl with them yet but running them on flat surfaces and grass in front of my house has been way better then the stock Canyons. Will be hard to beat the Canyons rock crawling though. Well see how that goes especially when these get broken in. I did gear cut the foams so that should help.
Ok here are the pictures for those that are interested. The extra headlights you see are from an extra traxxas light bar that I had that I cut apart and shoe goo'd into place of where the sticker headlights are now on the summit. I also pointed two LED's down at the area of the front tires from under the body to help aid in night crawling.
