Don’t be a Loser!

Unless you get involved now to save Johnson Valley, we all lose. On April 27th, 2012, the United States Marine Corps will submit their Final Environmental Impact Study which will start a chain of events to forever close 160,000 acres of the Johnson Valley OHV area. Currently, only 2% of Southern California desert is open to OHV use. If this were to happen, available land would shrink to only 1%!

The “Napsta”, Ben Napier

One of the racers who have been caught up in the KOH whirlwind is Australian Ben Napier. Ben had been driving 4×4’s since he took his driver’s license test behind the wheel of the family’s 1972 Land Rover. Ben then stepped it up when a friend asked him to compete in the Australian W.E. Rock series, which he did, and they had great success. Ben was having fun in the WE Rock series but he had read stories and seen videos of the newly developed King of the Hammers race that really sparked his interest.

King internal bypass shock, IBP.

King Shocks has just released a unique internal bypass shock that does not have the drawbacks of the common twin tube design. The King IBP internal bypass shock delivers precisely tunable velocity sensitive and position sensitive damping as well as a hydraulic bump stop in a bolt-on monotube shock. King’s monotube design uses a full diameter piston and standard, full size valving. It’s built from the same quality materials and to the same precise tolerances as King’s top of the line Pure Race series shocks. Mounted to the shaft below the standard piston, a second set of valving is housed in a billet aluminum chamber that contains valve shims and port openings that allow fluid to bypass the standard piston by flowing through ports into the shock’s hollow shaft.
