Late Breaking News

The design and development team have been working on an exciting new front drive shaft system that was tried for the first time at the World Championships a few weeks ago and, after further refinements, were used with great success at the US Indoor Championships (where the JRX-S was TQ). Due to the spectacular performance of these new parts we are currently trying to get them produced for inclusion in the JRX-S kit while trying to keep any cost increase to a minimum.
I believe these are the booted constant velocity jointed axles (dog bones and stub axles) that Matt Francis showed me just before he went to Cleveland. Very kewl and very desireable.

one thing about Smyka he has won 3 major races with 3 different cars

2003 snowbirds tq and win with a crc six pack
2004 tq and win with trinity reflex12
2004 cleveland with crc t-force

that to me says it all this guys can set up a car and drive the wheels off it.
Hey, not only can he drive, but you should see him unplug a sewer main!!!

If you ever take a crap in Broad Brook Connecticut, rest assured your poopie will reach its final destination because Mark Smyka is on the job...

I set the record with a mod 1/12 that got at least 7' of air. I think that Johny V is still talking about it. Didn't break the chassis either.

Thumbs down 1/12th scale bodies at Indoor Champs

"know the parma speed 8 was the body of choice for 12th scale. saw a few protoform drivers using them in the heats"

I just noticed this comment posted yesterday by nashrcracer. NOT too accurate.

PROTOform Speed 12 was TQ in 12th scale mod and was used by Josh to win the whole deal.

- 7 out of 10 bodies in the A-main were Pf Speed 12's

- Eli Ezrow TQ'ed and won Masters with the Pf Speed 12
