EVA is building its own Desert Racer.
After selling the Nissan Patrol and the demise of the Outback Challenge as an Australian event, efforts have moved to the faster and wilder scene of Off-Road Racing.
Justin is building a new vehicle for the Extreme 2wd class know as a 'Trophy Truck'.
This weapon has a 4130 chromoly tubular chassis using 4 coil over and 4 - 3 way bypass shock absorbers mounted to CAD designed front wishbones and rear trailing arms for 22" and 30" of wheel travel. Powering this beast is a worked 6L all alloy LS2 Chev mated to a highly modified Allison 1000 gearbox (first globally), and custom made Blitzkrieg Motorsport rear 9" Diff this will be some fun!
The lower Chassis Sections were built by Blitzkrieg Motorsports in California and Imported a couple of years ago.
This was put on hold to build our house and have our first child but, excitingly it has been resurrected lately.
