Obstacle Course, Hill Climb, and Coal Chute! - Top Truck Challenge 2013

Purchase the Top Truck Challenge DVD here! http://www.4wheelparts.com/search.aspx?kw=top+truck+challenge+dvd 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.

Tank Trap Part 1! - Top Truck Challenge 2013
Purchase the Top Truck Challenge DVD here! http://www.4wheelparts.com/search.aspx?kw=top+truck+challenge+dvd The Tank Trap is legendary, often spoken of in hushed, reverent tones. Tank Trap is a regular feature at the Hollister Hills SVRA, but for one day each year it's significantly modified for Top Truck. In its basic form it's a quarter-mile-long natural valley that climbs approximately 195 feet in elevation. For our once-a-year thrashathon we dig seven giant holes and we fill 'em with 120,000 gallons of water, which significantly increases the challenge level of the course. Here's how it works: Shortly into the course, competitors have to navigate two deep water holes that are preceded by steep dirt hills. Next up is the "Canyon." This evil 100-yard section is quite narrow and bordered by steep walls. The Canyon contains slippery rock waterfalls, ledges, and the ghosts of former competitor's hopes and dreams. But the worst is yet to come. Ahead are five more strategically-placed water holes, each separated by steep dirt hills. And if that doesn't suck the will out of competitors, there's a nasty, often underestimated thing we call the "Crevice" located between the fifth and sixth water holes. But wait, there's more. The crown jewel is the final hill, which steeply rises just past the last water hole and guards the finish line. Add to all of this the fact that competitors are given only 30 minutes and you have a recipe for some world class action and drama. And no, we don't let competitors see the course in advance. Strategically, Tank Trap is a major player because it's worth more than double the points of the other events.

American 4x4 Trucks in Oz - Hummer vs Jeep - Nitto Challenge
In this 4x4 video we have two iconic American trucks battle it out at Wheeny Creek aka Gees Arms South Trail. These two beasts of the 4x4 world go head to head choosing the most difficult lines and in some cases opening up new lines. Both the Hummer H1 and Jeep Wrangler JK are both running Nitto tyres. The Hummer is sporting 40 inch Nitto Trail Grappler tires while the Jeep Wrangler is running 37 inch Nitto Mud Grapplers tyres. The Hummer H1 is pretty much a standard 1996 model with some Alpha bits and pieces. the 40 inch tyres fit with no lift. Its still running the standard Torsen Diffs. It has a custom made front swing down bar with a Warn high mount winch. The Jeep Wrangler JK 2 door is sitting on a 3 inch lift and is twin locked with ARB air lockers. The front has a Dana 44 diff and the rear is a Dana 60 high clearance unit. Both trucks performed exceptionally well. We had a blast of a day and hope you enjoy the video as much as we enjoyed the trip. Be sure to subscribe for more 4x4 videos and feel free to comment and share.

$10,000 BOUNTY HOLE KILLER!!
LIKE | COMMENT | SHARE | SUBSCRIBE Mud Truck Madness hosted one of the largest Bounty Hole payouts in recent memory...a huge $10,000! Drivers from great distances took notice of this event and brought trucks out of retirement and upgraded their rigs to try and conquer the 525ft long pit. No skimming the pit was allowed, so you had to bog it. Heat was the enemy of most rigs that had the traction and horsepower to pull it. Congratulations to the guys who put on a show and pulled the pit. Randy Palmer successfully took home the W with a time of 5 minutes flat in his Sycotic Fabrication Polaris Ranger.
