#50 unlimited closed wheel

TT#50 was built by Racer Engineering specifically for the BFG 42" Tire.   Many people worried that the extra 30 pound difference between the 39" and 42" tire would be too hard on the drivetrain and spindles. 

 

Despite the many nay sayers the Cops team with encouragement from BFG and Racer Engineering decided that the 42" could be the future of desert racing.   Modifications to Racers TT platform where made to insure TT#50's success.  Stronger spindles where made. We sought out the strongest hub and wheel which were provided by Jamar and Trail Ready. To address drivetrain stress we added a Tubeworks underdrive (gear reduction).  

 

The team is very happy with our descisions. TT#50 is fast, reliable and a rough killer! 

 

Bigger tire, smaller desert!
