Obstacle Course, Hill Climb, and Coal Chute! - Top Truck Challenge 2013
Purchase the Top Truck Challenge DVD here!
The Obstacle Course begins with a shockingly tall and long slippery hill
descent known as the "first hill" and it ends with a nasty dogleg gully
that's tantalizingly close to the finish line. In between is a treasure
trove of terror. The "lower section" forces competitors to navigate a
360-degree turn through three deep water holes and sand. From there,
competitors travel up a hill to the "upper section" that includes a
deceiving off-camber U-turn (known as "U-turn Hill"), two deep water holes,
and numerous tight turns. This event has a 10-minute time limit, but speed
is the enemy. This is because the course is marked with numerous cones and
each one hit adds 20 seconds to the overall time. If all four tires of a
rig travel outside a cone the rig is disqualified at that point. Safety
violations net a whopping two-minute penalty. Clearly, accuracy is the key
to success in the Obstacle Course.
Think back to those hillclimbs you've done in your 4x4. Yeah, the TTC Hill
Climb isn't like that. The Hill Climb is built specifically for TTC, it's
approximately 600 feet in length and it has an average angle of
approximately 60 degrees. It twists and turns as it winds through the
poison oak and it's peppered with strategically-placed deep holes and dirt
hills. Yes, we added hills to our Hill Climb. The Hill Climb is loose,
steep, and unpredictable. Naturally, we don't let drivers see it before
they run it because that would ruin the surprise. The Hill Climb rewards
those who can think on-the-fly and punishes those who are thinking about
the next event. We allowed each competitor 5 minutes to tackle the hill and
during that time they could stop, reverse, or winch. If a competitor
exceeded the time limit, traveled out of bounds, or violated a safety rule
they were disqualified at that point.
The Mini Rubicon, a staple of Top Truck for years, was a brutal event that
forced competitors to fight for every inch of forward progress. It was
tough and unforgiving. We wanted something tougher. So, for 2013 we
replaced the Mini Rubicon with the awe-inspiring Coal Chute. This event
uses a newly developed area (Rock Rash Ridge) at the Hollister Hills SVRA
that contains an amazing collection of man-made obstacles. Naturally, we
tweaked it to make it exclusive to Top Truck. Our mind-bending course was
approximately 525 feet in length, and included steep walls in excess of 7
feet tall and jumbles of rocks and cement tubes. We even brought in a water
truck and created a waterfall on the final cement climb. The course was
broken into four distinct sections. We threw competitors a curve ball and
allowed them to skip one of the two first sections. However, we penalized
each competitor 10 minutes if they bypassed the first section and 6 minutes
if they bypassed the second section. Strategy was a major player at this
event. There was a 20-minute time limit and safety violations netted a
two-minute penalty. If two of the vehicles tires traveled outside of the
cones the competitor was disqualified at that point.

R1 Go Kart Passes a Cop (Proper GOPRO Editing, Link Below)
Don't make my mistake of uploading videos in non high def. There should be
a 720p high def option but I did not have the correct knowledge when
uploading to YouTube. I got fed up and decided to learn more about my
GOPRO and editing. Check out this link to learn how to use your GOPRO Hero
camera properly and edit professionally.
You DO NOT have my permission to re-upload my "R1 Go Kart Passes A Cop"
without my written permission. I have already filed copyright infringement
claims against 5 channels for re-uploading my video for financial gain.
This is a one of a kind custom frame built specifically for this engine.
One of the previous owners told me the gentlemen that bought it from him
had it up to 170mph. This kart is wicked.
WATCH TILL THE END, A POLICE CAR PASSES IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION!! If your
impatient to watch 10 minutes of video, skip to 7:50 and watch till the end
for the best part.
2005 Yamaha R1 Sport Bike engine in a Beisse Shifter Kart. Around 180 HP,
weighs about 220lbs. Previous owner had Kart up to 181 mph before a tire
blew out. Using GoPro Hero High Def camera with adhesive mount.
NOTE: The rear tires are worn out so the driver didn't do anything to
crazy. The ending was edited out to protect the driver.
Location: Northern Michigan
Here are a couple videos of the previous owner; where the speedo read
181mph and spun out.
