The Dakar coverage has been sub par so far for me. I have been watching it on VS channel, just bad coverage. I can't find any coverage on TV that is worth it.

The Dakar coverage is always bad... But at least we have coverage. Hopefully one of these days people will realize what a race that really is, and Americans will pay attention to it.

ORC: Given how familiar you are with the Nissan Navara, you are likely aware of how similar it is to our American Frontier. I’m sure our American readers would be interested to know about some of the changes you’ve made to your race vehicles.

GH: The base engine (VQ40DE) and headlights [of the race vehicles] are identical to the production version of the Navara/Frontier, and we have retained the rear live axle design. We have had great results with this setup given its simplicity and durability.

For people who don't know -
This year there are: 161 Bikes, 27 Quads, 140 cars/small trucks, and 152 big trucks.
Only 30% finish the race that is 2 weeks long - so 5th place is very good considering that the Nissan truck is up there with multi million $ factory teams BMW and VW!
Lets hope they can stay up there.
Last year I believe 1 or 2 Nissan trucks finished in the top 10.
These are well built trucks. (not factory)

here is a pretty good video where you really get to hear the truck really well and it sounds sick, i'd definitely say it has some bumped up compression, a serious set of cams, and a very aggressive ignition timing. probably running atleast 110 octane. i want that set up lol

the cracks only work when you add some nice stickers to go with it, the sticker crack combo is good for like 150 hp depending on your other mods :laugh:
