Proline Lockdown tires for Losi 5ive-T (update with 'No Foam' explanation)

Proline Lockdown tires for Losi 5ive-T (update with 'No Foam' explanation)

Pro-Line Racing has published a Sneak Peek of their brand new Lockdown tire which is available soon for the Losi 5ive-T. The variable pin spacing will give you the maximum forward bite while the side tread let you experience side traction and smooth steering like never before.

The Lockdown tires suits best on hard packed tracks. But the open tread pattern will give you traction on loose dirt sections also. This is a big advantage in opposite of the Blockade for example. When we drive the Blockades during competition we experience less traction on loose dirt when getting off the driveline because the sand is packed between the pattern. So it looks like these Lockdown tires can be our no.1 choice in the future!

Proline Lockdown for Losi 5ive-T

This tire is already a successor in the 1/8 buggy scene and will fit also directly on your 5T rims soon!

No Foam???

There is an article going around the internet that says there is no need for foam inserts. This because the rubber is so strong that it supports itself around the rims. Nicely thought but this isn’t true unfortunately. 

In fact, Proline will not deliver foam insert in the package by default. That’s the ’No Foam’ part. You can use the standard Losi foam (Part # LOSB7241) inserts or from a third-party manufacturer.

Stay tuned at Losi Racing Nederland for more information and availability!
