Greg-Adler-Motorsports-4-Wheel-Parts-6-24-15Compton, California – This weekend, the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series will be shining under the bright lights of the Las Vegas Motor Speedway and Team 4 Wheel Parts has the 900HP #10 Pro4 of Greg Adler primed and ready to attack the mile-long short course battleground.

The annual event at the purpose-built facility in the shadows of the glitz and glamor of the Las Vegas strip has become a mainstay on the schedule since the series’ inaugural season, joining such prestigious events such as the NASCAR Sprint Cup and NHRA Drag Racing at the expansive motorsports complex. Now, Adler and the team will be putting the exclamation point on their summer in the short course off-road racing season’s penultimate event of the year.

The highly anticipated and sold out 17th annual Sand Sports Super Show in Costa Mesa, CA is this weekend at the OC Fair and Event Center.  The key companies of the UTV, Sand and Offroad Industry gather every year at this event to show off new products, the latest in innovation and kick off the local sand dune season.  This year’s show has an increased number of vendors selling out the Fairgrounds!  It is a complete weekend of activities including all the features of years past, and the inclusion of the Speed Energy Stadium Super Trucks series on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  The Sand Sports Super Show will take over the Orange County Fair & Event Center in Costa Mesa on Friday from 4pm-10pm; Saturday from 9am-7pm and Sunday from 9am-4pm.

The first part of our TRD Like a Pro Series focuses on one of the most important upgrades to our Toyota Tundra – Bilstein coilover front shocks. These larger-than-stock, 60mm shocks will enhance the truck’s suspension performance in challenging off-road terrain as well as provide some additional ground clearance by raising the front of the truck 2 inches.

If you think traversing the backcountry in a full-equipped Jeep will cost you your first-born child, think again—this 2015 4-door Wrangler JK could be yours for the price of a fu-fu mocha. Each year, the California Four Wheel Drive Association (CAFWDA) fits a new Jeep with the newest high-tech equipment…and gives it away!

The W.E. Rock Grand Nationals will be at brand new location for both East and West competitors, Katemcy Rocks (K2) Off Road Park in Mason, Texas.  This new location has no home field advantage for either of the Pro Classes.  The rose-colored granite formations have a lot of crystal content, so traction should be excellent for the very technical courses with lots of bonuses designed by Josh England.  The competition will be on Saturday and Sunday at the 5-star site Katemcy Rocks (K2) Off Road Park located just 6 miles west of Mason, TX.  Cabins, electrical hook ups and a shower house are available onsite, or it is a short drive to town for motels and restaurants.

1-KMC-Machete-Falken-Wildpeak-AT3W-All-Terrain-Tread-9-10-15 is one of a handful of outlets to get a sneak peek at Falken’s all-new Wildpeak AT/3W all-terrain tire. We installed a set of the tires on KMC Wheels’ new Machete wheel and will post a review of them on the site shortly.

In the past few years, Falken has made a dedicated push into the off-road segment. If you’ve been in Moab, Utah, for the Easter Jeep Safari, or you’ve taken the modern rock-crawling pilgrimage to Johnson Valley OHV in Southern California for King of the Hammers, you’ve likely seen the Falken crew charging around trails in a Jeep JK Wrangler or other company rig, sporting its Wildpeak All-Terrain tire. Or maybe you’ve seen some of Falken’s sponsored drivers in competition, like Tony Pellegrino of Gen Right Off-Road who finished in second place at KOH in 2014.

Today, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) announced three separate recalls today that will impact more than 1 million Ram pickup trucks.
