So will this bring up the matching body discussion again? That's clearly a Ford body with a Chevy grill; I was under the impression that wasn't allowed in TORC...

looks like a ford body with a chevy grille to me too. this puts TORC tech in a tough spot because that is clearly not legal.

What makes them "Trophy Truck/ Dakar" beadlocks? The fact that they're the same color as the ones he used on the Silverado and Hummer? Rick Huseman uses the lighter, small rings on his Pro-4wd, and Todd LeDuc uses the fat ones on his Pro-2wd... Seems to me that some guys have both styles, and it just depends on what is on the wheels they use each day.

As for trying different "Treads", I'm sure they played with that a little. Since Toyo hasn't been grooving tires at the track this year, I'm sure the team tried a few different patterns to come up with one Robby is comfortable with. It seems that the teams are going to more of a "paddle" style groove now, I bet Robby's teem follows suit once they see what the other teams are doing.

They might not be TT/Dakar beadlocks, I just assumed he was trying something based on the color. Could be borrowed from a Monster teammate.

Either way truck is awesome and I hope he dominates in it!

Just stating my opinion. I say let him race who cares what the front clip looks like. it will fall off most likely.
