what, none of them are airborne?
^we already know they can fly across the desert but this was a test to see how well it did in slow rock crawling conditions. and to test out that new torsion front dif.
i know, i think it's funny that's all. if you remember people are having problems with the frame twisting from abuse and trying to blame ford. i think it's awesome they are doing these kind of tests, shows versitility.
As if the Raptor wasn't sexy enough as it was, I really like the new wheels.
i wonder why they didn't bring any SCrew Raptors out there? maybe that extra length is too much for some of those trails
^ ya thats what they said. The length of it wouldnt have made it thru some of the tight turns and steep climbs... It would have scraped the hitch badly.
And the bending frames was from owners taking off the limitors and driving them way to fast off road. They were meant for like up to 70-80mph not 120. The axle would compress and hit the bumpstop and fully compress it then push hard up against the frame... More than it can handle therefore making the frame bend. Then ford decided to tell people why it was happening and how to fix it, they had an event out in NM called "raptor roundup" where they taught you how to drive em properly.
And boom goes the dynamite.
