In this Vehicle Showcase blog we want to show you around our GQ race truck so you can see the products we use and abuse!
The GQ Safari is a massively popular chassis for off-road use and coupled with the TD42 turbo motor it’s an extremely capable truck which is why it has been the perfect base for us to upgrade with our off the shelf products as well as research and develop our own.
But let’s take it back to the beginning, 2013 to be exact and this is the bare shell project! A Sunday was spent removing sound deadening and then a roll cage was fabricated before we sent it down to our mates at Steven Sole Customs so they could coat it in our signature green.
Now to piece it all back together and choose what upgrades it needs! Not as easy as it might sound, mainly because we have so many quality options it gets hard to pick!
We decided that we wanted to try out the products that we thought would be most popular so we could really get some first hand experience and be able to use the gear in NZ conditions. You’ll have to excuse the mud in these pictures its no show car!
