Funny, cause I saw an on-road driver doing the same sorta of thing!

I'll have mine built soon.
Track was great Dave. Please get in contact with Bobby Phillips and lets get another electric event at your track

OK, I have a question for Andy or Jason.

Trinity has re-done their foam inserts for offroad tires. I have several pairs of JConcepts Grey Foams for my truck, however it appears that Trinity has changed the Grey foam to a 'softer foam' that isn't close to the old grey. The revised Trinity Blue is now so hard it takes several weeks to break them in. Any plans to make a Foam similar to the old Trinity Blue. I think you guys could sell alot of these in the winter time up in the North East. Thanks!

There not softer just flame retardant, they may feel slightly softer out of the bag but in the tire they are the same.

I want to buy a j82 but was wondering if you will be making them with the

Rulux buggy wheel

I like the spoke wheels better and can wait on that, but if not I would order it now

thanks

No Rulux wheels for the J82 any time soon. You will love it regardless

I believe it will, but Frank will have to confirm/deny this.
