    Strange CV question

    I had someone recently tell me that a mid-engine car is harder on CVs than a rear engine car. He couldn't state a reason, just that it was a "known fact". I guess it could be due to extra weight of the engine being in front of the CVs so the center of gravity is further forward which somehow...

    Let the debate begin!

    So did Robby drive at less than 100% just to get the finish, or was he going for it and flat out got beat by Andy in his Geiser? Can we now claim that Geiser builds the best performing TT? Disclaimer: This is just for fun - no flaming or insults!!

    Tire mounting - tire vs rim width

    I ran into an issue with getting some tires mounted over the weekend. I was trying to get a 12.5" tire mounted on a 8" rim, and no shop wanted to do it. They said it had to go on a 10" rim. I talked to about a dozen shops. In talking to one shop, he said the widest tire they could mount...

    Mid-board, micro stub, floater...

    New to the buggy stuff - been around trucks mostly. I know what the difference is between a mid-board and a micro-stub. I heard someone talking about a "floater" style from Fortin - is that the same as a mid-board? From the pics I have found they look similar. Thanks!
