Tuff Truck is an event XFORCE have been involved in one way or another over the past few years, previously sponsoring the event and in more recent years sponsoring the Rock Mulisha Daihatsu F20 built and driven by James and Glenn Gosper.
Coming from a background of fabrication it is no surprise that the Gosper Family have got their hands on every corner of this truck and improved it where possible. By taking a do it once and do it right approach to the build the Gosper family have created a great performer with reliability to match.
This little beast sits atop four massive 43 inch tyres powered by a 2.7L 3RZ borrowed from the Toyota Hilux which is provided with a little extra encouragement in the form of a garret GT2860RS.
Exhaust gasses are disposed of through a 3” turbo back system finishing with an XFORCE exhaust tip just behind the B pillar. Helping to develop a healthy 350hp in truck only weighing 1740kg, making it a top contender in the 2015 Tough Truck Challenge.
Team XFORCE Rock Mulisha had an early win in engineering before taking stage wins on Mud Rat’s Revenge and Mini Wiraba to place them in tied second with Team Redzook. After a count back second place was awarded to Team Redzook with Team XFORCE taking a well deserved third place in the Tuff Truck Challenge 2015.
