AGM-Jimco X6 Trophy Truck world-premiere

AGM TT #15 - it has been a long, but very rewarding project so far states Martin Christensen, team principal All German Motorsports. From the moment they decided to move up to SCORE’s premier Trophy Truck class, they knew that just buying a run of the mill truck would not work for them. So in true All German Motorsports fashion they set out to redesign the wheel, so to speak. The overall idea would be the same - four wheels, live axle rear end, front engine, two shocks per corner, but from there the design we came up with would take a different direction. The basic idea was to create a smaller, lighter, more nimble version of what was racing currently.
The goal being to design and manufacture every part 30% lighter than comparable items on other truck, without sacrificing strength or reliability. The complete story told by Martin Christensen here... More on Team AGM at Trophy Truck Racing here...
