DC’s Robbie Maddison ended 2011 and started 2012 in a big way at Red Bull’s New Year No Limits event in San Diego, CA. Robbie, along with snowmobiler Levi LaVallee, soared across the San Diego Bay doing the first-ever simultaneous world-record breaking distance jumps. Robbie jumped 378 ft. breaking his previous world-record of 351 ft.
Robbie had this to say about the big jump: “It’s a cool feeling to do what I do, and have the backing I do. I was confident were were going to go a long way tonight and we’re going to come back and go even further.”
Congrats on another amazing feat Robbie! We’re really excited to see all of the great and crazy things that 2012 brings.
Weld Racing LLC recently introduced their forged aluminum truck wheels at the 2011 SEMA show. The positive response was overwhelming. The U.S. manufactured wheels are available for single rear wheel trucks, duallies, and trailer wheels in matching styles and finishes. The line offers 10 classis and new styles in polished and machined after black anodized finishes. Single rear wheel truck load ratings of 3500 pounds using 44″ tires puts these wheels in a class of one. Forged aluminum construction adds durability and sheds the excess weight of cast aluminum wheels.
Single rear wheel truck sizes are 17×8.5 to 20×14. Direct mount dually sizes are 17×5.6 and 19.5×6.75. Trailer wheels are 16×6. 8-lug applications are available now. 5 & 6 lug wheels along with trailer wheels will be available January 2, 2012. Weld Racing…Back on Track – Back on Trucks!
SoCal SAYS: It’s great to see Weld out in the market with new products after their 2008 bankruptcy and initial focus only on racing wheels. The wheel shown here (20″ T58B) is another example of Weld’s classic designs. Can’t wait to see what’s up next for Weld.
That’s right: Nissan is ramping up a makeover on their full-size truck so it can hit the market in two years. They acknowledged that they need to be patient with the Titan because it’s still early in the lifecycle of the truck. The Titan was only launched in 2004, whereas Ford and Chevy have been refining their trucks for five or six decades.
The Titan’s sales peaked six years ago around 87,000 trucks sold. This year, they may only sell 15,000, which could be the reason for the decision to redesign. Nissan is talking about adding different engine options, very efficient powertrains, and a few other sytle changes to mix things up.
SoCal SAYS: We like the idea of adding a more powerful engine, but we at SoCalTrucks think it’s the style is what needs some work. Don’t get us wrong, we like the overall look of the truck, but we hate the plastic grill, the ugly wheels, and the goofy stickers. The front-end could also be a little bit more “boxy” to add some intimidation to the truck. If Nissan can improve the style along with the guts, the 2014 Titan could fight it’s way into the mix of killer full-size lifted trucks.
