On King of the Hammers, Ford made his race-ready Bronco debut
The stock 4600 class is intended to be a simpler section point into the grueling universe of rock crawling.
Recently we saw the Ford Bronco transformed into a limitless class 4400 King of the Hammers rock crawler. Today Ford appeared the stock class variant, something that ought to be all the more effectively open to your regular people and Joes who need to try dashing: It’s the Bronco 4600 race SUV, and it’s made a beeline for King of the Hammers.
For those of you who aren’t desert rats as they are, King of the Hammers may not mean anything to you. It’s one of the meanest, ugliest, gnarliest races on earth. Which began as a group of companions dashing through the vehicle size rocks of Johnson Valley, California, has advanced into a weeklong occasion total with a spring up city called Hammertown and no less than six individual races, all coordinated by the endorsing body Ultra4 Racing.
This stock Bronco finds a way into the 4600 stock class. In any case, don’t believe that stock methods unmodified. The guidelines express that while the stock frame, body, motor and transmission should be utilized, groups can install redesigned tires, transfer cases, axles and such.
Indeed, even moves up to suspension parts are permitted, if they continue as before type. So leaf springs need to remain leaf springs, coilovers need to remain coilovers. You get the gist.
That brings us here. Passage will race the two-door with the Sasquatch bundle and the 2.7-liter twin-super V6 pushing out 310 drive and 400 pound-feet of force. Inquisitively, Ford is utilizing the 10-speed automatic, not the seven-speed manual. They say curiously in light of the fact that the automatic has a creep proportion of 67.8:1.
That is acceptable yet it could not hope to compare with the manual’s slither proportion of 94.7:1, which is the thing that drivers need when endeavoring to climb these incredibly enormous rocks and stones. Ford didn’t quickly restore a solicitation for input when gotten some information about the choice.
In any case, this race-prepared Bronco looks pretty dope with the 35-inch BF Goodrich KM3 tires folded over Method beadlock wheels. Also, it should go very far into the stones because of redesigned Triton Engineering control arms, RCV custom half shafts and a Dana e-storage. Updated Triton Engineering back connections and a Dynatrac XD60 back hub are enhanced by an ARB Air Locker and Spidertrax Spider 9 hub shafts and centers.
This rig not just needs to overcome the stones, it likewise must be a rapid challenge eater on the off chance that it needs to dominate races. Accordingly, it’s wearing Fox coilovers with far off supplies and pneumatic bump stops. The Bronco 4600 additionally sports a full move confine, a Warn winch, LED lights by Rigid and FIA rough terrain race-ensured situates by Recaro.
Friday’s Every Man Challenge would be the ideal dashing introduction for the Bronco 4600, however oh, the organization has invested every one of its amounts of energy into getting the limitless 4400-class Bronco prepared to race on Saturday and hasn’t tried the 4600.
Ford says it will start hustling as we draw nearer to Bronco creation with an entire slew of magnificent drivers including Vaughn Gittin Jr, Loren Healy, Jason Scherer, Bailey Cole, Brad Lovell and Roger Lovell.
