Just curious, or maybe I have missed it, but is there an engine manufacturer associated with the trucks? I have seen in earlier pics that Dodge was still on the hauler. What a great opportunity awaits for someone to be announced.
Chevy LS's ,appr 650hp.I'm not reading anything into the Dodge tow rig.If you stop the footage at 3:20, the grill of the SST looks like a Traxxas TRX logo.
When I talked to Robby last Saturday at the Sand Show he said all the trucks had LS7s and all are going to look alike and that the bodies are based off of a Traxxas Truck no manufacturer affiliation. He said that the original SST he used at the LA Colisium was a Toyota and he called it ugly.
So SST = COT now?
@Alan,thats been my opinion from the announcement of the series.The one big differance is the ability to individually tune the shocks and drivers providing their own tires.So that's an inclusive twist on the IROC theme.
It will be interesting,IMO
After the bouce house NASCAR affiliation with what seems to be to the naked eye not much loyalty from the car makers yea I know. The Stock car manufacturer thing reminds me of a case of heart burn I had .......couldn't give the stuff a way. Kudos Ku-fa-kin-dos to Robby with the Traxxas deal. ...........and no I don't a remote control car just dreams of having the time.
@MJ, As memory serv's,there was basically two rules on tires.Size and DOT.Tire contracted drivers can use the manufacture of tire they are contracted to.TOYO is Robby's,RIcky Johnson-BFG.as an example.
I don't remember if ,say Ricky Johnson (a FOX SHOX driver) gets to mount FOX's or if they just get to tune on the Kings.
