Jimco Racing is proud to announce the launch of “The Hammerhead”, the next evolution in Class 1 race vehicles. “The Hammerhead” Class 1 car essentially features a Trophy Truck front end grafted onto the championship winning Jimco Class one “Champion” series chassis, increasing durability and front wheel travel by 2 inches.
The front end features 4.0 inch bypass shocks and a custom steering box improving steering geometry and handling. “The Hammerhead” also features a new mid-engine design, centering the weight in the car improving handling and responsiveness.
The rear suspension features 4.5 inch bypass shocks and 20” longer trailing arms, making this car capable of handling the roughest terrain. This next generation of Class 1 car sits on 40” BFG KM2 Race Tires and is finished with the same specialty features that go into every Jimco race vehicle.
