Ian Hanson Shares his First Quarter 2015 Race Experience with Pro-Line

I ran an entire indoor season from September to March using one set of Pro-Line IONs MC Compound on my 2WD SC.

The New Pro-Line Trifecta 1:8 Buggy Wing is becoming more popular with local racers in my area. Drivers have noticed improved corner speed and better high speed stability.

I was pushing it in the last few races but I wanted to see if I could make it the whole season on one set. I finished the Mike’s RC World 2014-15 season 6th place overall in 2WD Modified SC. I finally found time to get this Flo-Tek Body painted up and it turned out awesome.


I used VTR Wheels and Electrons on my 4WD Kyosho ZX6 with great success, I loved how much more consistent the car felt with the 2.4” Tire package.


At Round #1 of the Northwest Championship Tour in Wenatchee, WA I used Pro-Line Hole Shots in M3 Compound on my 4WD SCTE 2.0 to get my first podium finish (3rd) at a regional event.



I made a big decision this spring to change up my outdoor classes. I will be running Pro-Nitro Buggy in the NCT Series and at my local club races as well as 4WD SC and I hope to add Nitro Truggy before the end of the season. Here is a shot of my new 8ight 3.0 with my new paint scheme for the summer.

At the Mike’s RC World awards race in April, my fellow racers and I received some bad news…the owners were going to sell the building and the business. There will likely be no more indoor off-road racing north of Tacoma, WA going forward. For the winter 2015-16 season I will be racing carpet on-road with the Seattle Racers RC Club. SRRC is a well-organized club and has been going strong since 2008. In March I was awarded a sponsorship by ARC – USA and this winter I will be racing the ARC R10 ’15 Touring Cars with PROTOform Bodies.


I want to thank all of the staff at Pro-Line Racing for the support you have given me and I look forward to being able to continue showing off and promoting all of the great products you offer.

Thank you,
Ian Hanson
