One Wicked Whoop Killer

If you're building a race car or prerunner, what better friend to have than someone who has been dubbed "The Shock God?" The truck was notched, bent, and welded in all the right places but wouldn't be a comfortable ride without having the shocks and coilovers set up correctly. Andy turned to Pete Albano of Precision Shockworks in Upland, California, to properly valve and tweak all four corners of this machine into a harmony of motion.
Knowing this prerunner was built with racing in mind, we opted to tackle the Barstow racecourse for our photo shoot. The rough and uncompromising terrain was just what we needed to put this Bad in Black Blue Oval to the test. After wiping the drool from the camera for long enough, Andy offered up his passenger seat. An in-car camera would have been nice to capture ear-to-ear grins, as the suspension made each whoop section feel like nothing more than your average parking lot speed bump. It was easy to see that the geometry and fabrication of his truck was topnotch. Andy's dream had come true.
