Jimco Racing is proud to announce the launch of the new “Dragon” #AWD Trophy Truck platform. The “Dragon” is an entirely new design by Jimco from the ground up. Chassis #001 was custom-built for LA Dodgers owner and avid off-road racer Bobby Patton of Fastball Racing. The “Dragon” moves to capitalize on the benefits of the extreme acceleration and grip that All-Wheel Drive platforms are known for.
Part Trophy Truck, part rally car, the “Dragon” features a specifically engineered CAD verified front engine chassis design with a wheelbase of 125” and a track width of 93” to maximize horsepower to ground and give the driver unrivaled acceleration.
The “Dragon” drivetrain features the perfectly matched duo of the Xtrac 5-speed wide cluster sequential transmission with an integral transfer case, matched to an Xtrac Spool Type CTR Torque Split front diff, powered by a massive Dougans Custom 555 ci Big Block 8 Stack V8 Engine Package pushing out 1050 hp with 850 ft-lbs of torque. All of this is achieved while still maintaining 24 inches of travel in the front and 32 inches of travel in the rear. The distillation of over 40 years of off-road warfare, The “Dragon” defines the new pinnacle of off-road racing performance.
We reveal this amazing build at the legendary Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles, CA named “Blue Heaven on Earth” by baseball legend Tommy Lasorda as a nod to the owner and connection to the 7x World Series champions The LA Dodgers.
Take a closer look at this incredible evolution in off-road racing vehicle design.
