When we saw Essentially Off Road‘s latest creation we couldn’t
believe our eyes. They had built a buggy with brand new Camaro skins! Usually when you think of a four wheel drive Camaro it is a old school body chopped and put on top of a blazer frame. This one off build is far from the trailer park pounding machines you have seen at the local mud bog. The EOR crew started with one of their Magnum 321 Chassis and a Turnkey LS1. The lightweight LS1 was dynoed at 430 horsepower before it was turbo charged and tuned at the Murfreesboro based Off Road Shop. A Holley Avenger fuel injection system and 16 gallon fuel cell feed this green beast. The nasty engine was then mated to a TCI TH350 transmission and a 3.8 Atlas transfer case gets the power to the axles. The 35 Spline pinion nodular 9″ race gear centers are tubed with Crane knuckles and full floating 60 outers. Spidertrax brakes pull stopping duty on all four corners. These beefy axles are held in place by a custom 4-link suspension comprised of 2″ 7075 aluminum links with 1.25″ hiems on each end. Turning the massive 42″ competition compound Goodyears is a custom full hydraulic steering system with a PSC double ended ram. All of the sheet metal was custom built to mimic the lines of a new model Camaro and sprayed with a factory green. The chassis was powdercoated with a bling gold flake that glitters in the sunlight. The editors at Crawl Magazine will truly enjoy this green beast dubbed the CRAWLMARO. We caught up with them at the 2011 Master of Mayhem competition at Mayhem Off Road Park in Mcminnville, Tennessee. Check out the walk around video of the rig as well as their first test drive in the open fields letting that turbo spool up! Watch for a full feature in a future issue of CRAWL Magazine. You might also catch a glimpse of it in person at various trade shows across the country.
The best Helmet Cameras PERIOD!
