Pro-Line has been hard at work producing some great new accessories for your 1:10th racing buggies. They have rolled out these killer looking Black Diamond Shock Shafts. They are available for the TLR 22 and the Team Associated B4.1 and B44.1.

Pro-Line started with the highest grade USA forged Ultra Alloy Material and then Precision Centerless Ground and machined the shafts to absolute tolerances and finish specifications using CNC machines in the USA. They then Roll Formed the threads instead of cutting in the threads for the highest strength threads possible. Pro-Line didn’t stop there and found the highest grade shaft coating known to mankind – Black Diamond DLC coating. This is the exact same coating found in Formula 1, NASCAR and Factory MX Bikes on suspension components, engine components and anything that requires virtually zero friction and ultimate durability. Diamond-Like Carbon DLC coating creates a much harder surface than standard TiNitride shaft coatings and delivers a 10 times smaller Coefficient of Friction for the smoothest shock action that has ever been achieved. Pro-Line is changing the game and delivering Next Generation Shock Shaft Technology all Made in the USA! Get yours today!
