Another buggy is almost prepared for Ultra4 Europe 2015. Used to be owned by Portuguese Paulo Candeias, he won the national championship once and finished 2nd twice on King of Portugal. Stefan and Jelle Janssens (Belgium) bought the car from Paulo last year in October.
It’s a real father & son project! But a JK-look build will deceive you, there’s no Jeep and there’s no JK in this buggy.
It’s a Jimmy 4×4 chassis with the JK-look first built in 2009. It has a fully prepared TH400 transmission with reversed shift pattern and a Turnkey 5.7 L engine. The amount of force is just enough – 410 HP.
But everything is not for everyone. So the car will now be running the Trail Worthy Fab 2Speed Hero case (1.98 ratio) instead of the Stak 4×4 transfer case that was already fitted.
Trusty Red Winch Cobra with an overdrive gear set will be used for recovery. Hopefully, the car will not use it often.
Buggy was recently tested successfuly at the Scorpion Challenge.
Good luck guys. See you in Italy in June!
