Climb - Pikes Peak Hill Climb with a Monster
Ride on the bumper of a screaming 910hp, Twin-turbo, All-wheel Drive, 150 mph Suzuki SX4 as it
races up one of the world's most dangerous hills. An attempt by the
"Monster" to break his own record of 10:01:41...
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO (June 29, 2010) -- For the fifth consecutive time,
Nobuhiro "Monster" Tajima combined experience, skill and Falken Tires to
claim overall victory in the 88th running of the Pikes Peak International
Although he did not set a new Pikes Peak record, one day before his 60th
birthday, Tajima continues to hold the current overall record for reaching
the peak, beating hill climb veterans Paul Dallenbach and Rhys Millen in
the Unlimited Class. He drove his new 910-hp Monster Sport Suzuki SX4 Hill
Climb Special on Falken WildPeak A/T tires, the powerful new line of
all-terrain, all-season tires Falken launched this past April.
Following Exhaustive tests in a
Japanese wind tunnel facility, Monster's 2010 Pikes Peak race car underwent
extensive aerodynamic changes to better adapt to the modified road surface
on the race to the clouds, which assumed a smoother tarmac and less gravel
than last year. Thinning air ascending the mountain robs most motors of
their power by 30 or more percent, but the increase in horsepower over last year's
race car helped push the driver forward.
The Tow Test! - Top Truck Challenge 2013
Purchase the Top Truck Challenge DVD here!
This is the only event in TTC's seven-event repertoire that doesn't require
mud bogging, rockcrawling, or deep water navigation. Nonetheless, this
kickoff event instills fear in competitors because it has the potential to
annihilate weak components. The Tow Test is like a truck pull that drank a
case of energy drinks. It takes place on a dirt hill that climbs
approximately 13 feet in elevation over its 150-foot length and it has a
maximum angle of approximately 16 degrees. Each competitor's rig was
fastened to a 36,000-pound cement mixer and each competitor was allowed one
pull. There was no time limit and a pull was completed when forward
momentum ceased or the front axle of the cement mixer crossed the finish
line. This event favors heavy rigs with big power and grippy tires.
