vi3tishduy - The JRX-S at Hobbytown is $369.99. Sorry that you can't get your dad to bring you up to westminster. The racing is generally pretty good. And the shop has plenty of parts.

Later, Lee

They are great rims! I just glued up a set of RP 36's and Sorex 36's on Losi rims!

They are a firmer wheel but at our local track the grain of the asphalt is a little rough and the softer rims hook up much better. Truth be told I HATE the white dish heels anyway!! After 15 yrs of off-roading I am having withdrawls from not having yellow wheels!!!!

Oh yeahh..... there in the mail...honest......


Question for you & Bill (and Todd, if you’re as silly as us)

As the gravitational pull of the Sun and Moon affect our planet conditions, (tidal movements, etc.), does this mean our cars will have more grip at night when there is no moon?

Now if definitively going to sleep, I’m getting to the point of no return…

I prefer the Losi wheels on low grip tracks whereas I switch to the Yokomo precision on high grip tracks.

Well im not Bill but im a Billy... I would say no, because even if there is "no moon" the moon is still present but in a different phase, or obscured by clouds. The gravitational pull of the Sun and Moon... mostly the moon affect the tides as well, and tides are always happening, therefore the moon is never "gone". I apologize I just took my final college class, physical science, and that is about all I remember from the whole thing LMAO... Im still getting stuff ready for the BTH race, 10pm and Im getting up at 3am....Im nuts
