The King of Hammers is one of the toughest offroad races on the planet. Its high-speed desert racing with technical rock crawling mixed within so you basically have the best of both worlds. With that being said you need a ridiculously strong vehicle because you need the long travel suspension and power similar to what you’d see in a trophy truck for the open desert parts of the course, but also need the chassis flex, lockers, skid plates among other things to be able to handle the rock crawling aspect. Enter the Ultra4 class that is exactly that. You’ve seen an example of the Ultra4’s capability on our previous post “Milk Run” so this should come as no shock, but these vehicles are no joke! I’m not sure whether to refer to them as buggies, trucks, jeeps or what, but either way, watch one of them hit and destroy a rock like you’ve never seen before.
