Les Comes 4×4 Festival 2016

This year, the Les Comes 4×4 festival is scheduled for March 12th and 13th. The event will once again host full time extreme off road action. This event is probably the most important events on the Pyrenees for every off road owner and enthusiast.

Hundreds of vehicles came to Suria to watch the live show of four Dakar Rally trucks – Gerard de Rooy, Pep Vila, Jordi Juvanteny and Van Ginkel prepared something special. Prototypes that had little to do with a classic 4×4 vehicle overcam rocky obstacles you can’t see every day. Also, the number of exhibitors made this event even better. It is amazing how much aftermarket equipment you can find for a decent price.

PillowTrack, evolution of 4×4 assistance

It can help you raise the approach angle off your vehicle or you can just fill in the gap with it. It is just much easier than filling up a ditch with logs, rocks and other stuff you find scattered around. You just inflate the Pillowtrack, fill in the gap with it and that’s it. If that’s not enough, you just add one more. That should do the job!

Pillowtrack is not smooth, it has rubber tracked sides for a better grip to the tire. So it is designed to help you in almost any situation, including sand.

LEGO Trophy Truck :)

You can check out the RM8 channel on Youtube. Click this link to visit the Lego Trophy Truck. The video is down below too, but for some reason, Youtube doesn’t allow to watch it anywhere else other than their home site.

The LEGO Trophy truck Double Trouble is amazing, it has rear wheel drive and long-travel IFS with coilovers. As almost any other Trophy Truck, it has linked solid axle with coilovers in the back. The performance is next to amazing, like no other factory made LEGO model.

Jeep Wrangler Red Rock at SEMA show 2015

The Jeep Wrangler Red Rock actually looks almost the same as the Red Rock Responder presented for the MOAB Easter Safari. But it is nothing like it.

There is one similarity though, it’s a pure off roader. No doors, no roof, no nothing – just pure metal, windscreen and a rollcage.

The Wrangler Red Rock remains a concept now, but there are some rumours it will go into production next year. We shouldn’t forget to mention – the Wrangler Red Rock won the “Hottest SUV” award at SEMA Show 2015.

What are beadlocks and beadlock wheels?

Usually, the tire bead sits inside the wheel. And that’s not an issue when the pressure is normal because it pushes the walls of the tire to the bead seat.
But for proper off roading, it is useful to drop the tire pressure to increase traction. This is where beadlocks come in handy.
Due to the deflation, the tire could slip of the wheel. As the name says, the beadlock holds/locks the tire bead.

If you can’t justify getting beadlock wheels – just don’t. There’s no point. Because sometimes less is more.
