The jrx pro had a graphite and the RTR had a molded chassis. Then someone (Jack Johnson I think) tried the molded chassis on with the PRO parts and it was way better. I remember when he first tried it at RCH in Costa Mesa. Then everyone started using it. All the molded chassis for the PRO cars all came about from an accident from an RTR.

Haha,not really. Just did a search on the singer but he definitely looks diferent.
But beside this anyone knows what happenend to Jack Johnson? He was one of the best offroad drivers some years ago.
About the time the JRX Pro was released there was a Team Losi Jack Johnson motor. I still have it.

Jack is doing quite well outside of the R/C industry. He is dusting off of r/c stuff and will come back shortly.
