Todd....Have you guys looked into making a rear hub on the JRXS that is dual position like what’s on the off-road cars now? So that you can just have one hub and move the hinge pins to make it standard or off set? The only thing I can see as being an issue is the ball stud locations you might need to have 3 or 4 holes and they might need to be stepped down like the Yokomo rear hubs. Is this something that you have looked at and it wont work or do you like the rear hubs the way they are on the JRXS now.

Also how soon until the 2deg rear hubs are out for the JRXS?

I probably won't end up racing it but I might be in the pits

Track system is super cool but right now the track is super low grip. We need some more foam people out there to help build up a groove and get the grip level back-up

By far pizza has become America's favorite food over the past 50 years. Million of pizza pies are eaten daily, but how often do the people eating the food stop to consider the history. The true origins of this fine cuisine are as colorful as any good pizza pie heaping with toppings.

The common belief is that Italians invented the pizza, however the origins go back to the ancient times. Even though we have yet to uncover archeological evidence of a Dominos Pizza before the last century, it is known the Babylonians, Israelites, Egyptians and other ancient Middle Eastern cultures were eating flat, un-leaven bread that had been cooked in mud ovens. The bread was much like a pita, which is still common in Greece and the Middle East today. Further it is known that ancient Mediterranean people such as the Greeks, Romans and Egyptians were eating the bread, topped seasoned with olive oil and native spices.

The lower class of the Naples, Italy is believed to have created pizza in a more familiar fashion. In the late 1800s a Italian baker named Raffaele Esposito, was believed to have created a dish for visiting royalty. According to the story, the Italian monarch King Umberto and his consort, Queen Margherita were touring the area. In order to impress them and to show his patriotic fervor Raffaele chose to top flat bread with food that would best represent the colors of Italy: red tomato, white mozzarella cheese and green basil. The king and queen were so impressed that word quickly reached the masses. The end results were that the dish was well received to the extent that others began to copy it.



ya more cut and paste

I would start the 8x1 out at 20.6mm roll out. That is 57mm tires with a 128/27 gear ratio. For a 7x1 I am going to start at a 19.7 to 19.9 rollout. For a 10x1 I would start at a 22.5 to a 23.0. I go run carpet next week and I can not wait to go run.
