Outback Challenge 2008 with 15 Teams in the desert of Morocco

The 2008 version of the Outback Challenge, organized by Mr. Patrice Ryder from Outback Import, France, took place from April 23rd to May 5th in Morocco. Total of 15 teams from six different countries conquered the Moroccan Desert with their special 4WD vehicles. Vehicles specially built for such an event with increased height suspension, different shock absorbers, winches, tires, lights, etc, almost a complete competition vehicle.

4GRIP in cooperation with Outback Import did support the Brisbane’s team Nissan Patrol Y61 (car fitted with a Toyota 80 Series engine and gearbox/transfer case) with tailor made FOX Racing shocks (2 units per corner) and hydraulic bump stops. The car performed very well, but unfortunately retired when the engine swallowed water and bent a conrod, but to the car performed extremely well with the suspension. The combination FOX Racing Shox powered by 4GRIP and King Springs coils was a perfect choice.

The product range includes shock absorbers, hydraulic bumpstops, coil springs, limiting straps and all related hardware. 4GRIP is focused on rally-raids and off road racing.

Spin off from those above mentioned products is a aftermarket line of dampers FOX powered by 4GRIP for the serious off-roader, desert traveler or even a T1 racer who need dampers for the original length and fitment. Applications are available for Nissan Patrol GR, Mercedes G Wagon, Land/Range Rover, Toyota Land Cruiser 80/90/100 series, Mitsubishi Pajero to name a few.
