Have you guys followed that Steel City Racing 4runner? It ran a marlin crawler concept ifs front last year that broke almost immediately. I'm real curious how it survives with the improvements.
I'm happy to hear that they will be taking another shot and KOH this year.Have you guys followed that Steel City Racing 4runner? It ran a marlin crawler concept ifs front last year that broke almost immediately. I'm real curious how it survives with the improvements.
One did, with wheels, tires and a skid plate as the only mods: https://www.utvsportsmag.com/press-release/maverick-sport-conquers-koh/KOH is nothing I'd ever use as any sort of barometer in my vehicle choice.
I'd put it at around zero factory vehicles that can compete there, even highly modified rigs get destroyed.
Pointless as a measuring stick.
I mean...It's AWESOME. But roughly 927% of buyers won't use a Bronco in this manner.
To make an IFS travel you have to lengthen the arms... inwards or outwards. inwards you're not gonna do that very well in a 5000 lb vehicle because that diff needs to be fairly beefy - and not the size of a grapefruit like the UTV ones are.But wouldn’t it be amazing if Ford pulled off some kind of new IFS that allowed competitive travel and strength! It’s 2020 y’all. Space Force Is a thing, bet my buddies in Colorado have given some good tech to ford... watch the top of the line model not even have wheels!
They might have just been filming this video.Just watched a YouTube vid from LLOD. Video started w/ some SHOT show stuff and then he started talking about being out in Johnson Valley while they were testing the Bronco. He supposedly got asked to sign a NDA if he wanted it... so that means it’s gotta be getting ready for something out there.
Guess it’s time to go set up camp...
I figured it was for that video (and they could have been out there for weeks), but the non-disclosure threw me off. That mule is no secret, we all know it front-back.... unless it was a look at its powertrain?They might have just been filming this video.
Roughly lines up (January 10th) with what he said in the video "a few weeks ago" although a few weeks ago would be about January 15th.. But I hope they were testing more for the KOH too. I mean Ford must have filmed that footage BEFORE January 10th before they posted it, so maybe LLOD really was there when Ford was training for something else...
Heard more likely than saw. Or they were concerned he might have caught it in the background of his own video and they wanted to prevent him letting the cat out of the bag before they were done with their own video.I figured it was for that video ... unless it was a look at its powertrain?
