Last year we stopped by the HN Motorsports shop in Baja to shoot their new UTV they made in-house. Now HN Motorsports, led by Elias Hanna, has created another beautiful machine that has a lot of history for their team. This specific truck was built using the chassis of their first 7stock SCORE race truck as starting point.
Well, the entire chassis is a little bit of a stretch since it only shares the two main chassis rails, which have been shortened by 10% of the original size. Everything else, however, is brand new.
“This machine rips. I love the way it feels now. It’s a beautiful pre-runner,” said Hanna. “This machine was finished back in October to pre-run the last Baja 1000.
Leaving the stock Ford Ranger engine behind, this new machine is powered by a 710HP Spec engine with a Culhane 3-speed transmission and 40″ BFGoodrich KR3 tires. a well-rounded combo if you ask us, especially if this machine will be for pre-running proposes only. For stability and control, Fox Shocks covers the suspension department and ProAm brakes make sure it stops when it has to, if it has to.
Other details about this truck are the KC Hilights, making sure the road ahead is visible during those pitch-dark Baja nights, the 80-gallon Harmon fuel safe on the back for safety and the Ultra Wheels for style points.
Inside, Mastercraft seats and belts keep the drivers safe, Lowrance GPS units keep them on track and PCI Radios make sure they don’t lose communications to their chase crews. Below you can geek out every detail on the spec table and check out those photos that make you feel the ocean breeze with a hint of race gas.
