We have been hard at work on our lap top computer designing a better race truck. The Dezert Nation TT or Smoke will have 90" track width, Wheel base is still undecided. Front suspension cycling a legitimate 24" of wheel travel (23 after bump and strap), the shock mounts are 32" from the bottom of the chassis, the shocks are using a 12" stroke with a +1" rod end (22.81 comp, 34.81 ext).

The Idea behind the truck is to build a competitive truck at a reasonable price. You probably will not see dimple died steering columns and little extra like that, but what you will get is a solid vehicle that will finish races. With decades of hands on off road experience and gifted Computer design of Zac Johnson. We believe this truck will be a front runner at a fraction of the price of others.

Estimate completion date 2011 August

TT or smoke? lol wtf...........oh never mind i get it. ;)

oh and um....is that full bump shock angle for reals?

For real yo! Matt don't be scared of shock angles..15° or so can still be an increasing ratio.. (not that I know anything on this particular truck)

Shock progression is similar to the new burg truck, along with SPD and geisers. Hard to tune? I'm convinced that the most important aspect of shock tuning is the man tuning them, also with position sensative bypass shocks, it can be as easy to tune as a desired progression. Plus there is an engine in the way!

Looks kind of familiar. I would build a truck first before you just design it in cad. Trust me! Not saying that you guys will not do a good product. I have total faith in you guys so I hope it comes out the way you want. 300 man hours fixing cad problems suck!!!

The idea behind the new TT is to have the front end and rear 4 link CAD design. The rest we will done the old fashion way, by hand.

It is not I-beams, it is center mounted A-arms.
