It is again time for the amazing Croatia Trophy!

This year two of our customers take part at the trophy!

Peter Whitman and his Co-Driver Adrian Turner with the Yellow Humbug on Portalled Spidertrax Spider 9’s and Nico Ladang with his Co-Driver Ben Flamaing from team Off-Roadrunner with their orange D&G Buggy on spidertrax axles!

Of course we wish them both best of luck and will try to give you a daily update on their performances!

Defender Td5 100″ gets Spidertrax Spider 9’s!

leave a comment »

Again another nice project for our team in the workshop!

This very nice equipped Defender Td5 90 which is stretched to 100″ using Gigglepin rear trailing arms will get Spidertrax Spider 9 axles with Hi9 ARB diffs, 4340 halfshafts!

The truck already had King 2,5″ Coilovers in the rear, but will now get the same coilovers in the front in combination with full hydraulic steering using HOWE components!

As mentioned before on this blog, D&G 4×4 Tuning is able to supply a bolt on kit for Land Rover Defenders meaning that you can replace your original axle with a Spidertrax Spider 9 and keep the existing suspension (springs, shocks, trailing arms) and propshaft.

As this Truck already had Gigglepin trailing arms with Johnny joints in the rear we will use these and replace the original front ones with North Offroad Front trailing arms with Johnny joints. Also the front axle will come forward a few inches to create the best possible approach angle!

The rear axle is completely ready to be painted and installed and we are now working on the front axle with the coilovers and full hydraulic steering!

More updates will follow in the next few days!

C.A.T.: Update

leave a comment »

A lot of work has been done on Chris Abels Taurus the past few weeks!

As you can see both the front and rear axle are now installed. The rear axle is completely finished with the Radflo 2″ coilovers and 2.5″ Triple bypass shocks in place! In the rear C.A.T. will have a 4 link suspension.

On the front we are now working on installing the Radflo 2″ coilovers and 2.5″ and the HD steering box, as this Taurus will get a mechanical steering box and not the full hydraulic steering as we use on most of our competition trucks. Also the 4 link which we use on most of the tubular chassis will be replaced by a custom made 3 link with panhard rod!

In the back we also made a lightweight support for the huge ATL tank with a capacity of 100l. The ATL tank has a built in lift pump, high pressure pump and fuel pressure regulator!

Also in the cabin a lot of work has been done, the floor panels have been made, also the D&G Dashboard got installed so we  can soon start working on the electirical part of the truck!

More updates on C.A.T. will follow very soon!
