Despite the loss, the Trophy-Truck demonstrated its potential
Many positive impressions, but unfortunately not finish: That was the conclusion of Armin Schwarz and All-German Motorsports in the San Felipe 250, the second round of the U.S. Championship SCORE 2012th On the 250-mile route around San Felipe, the participants were traveling in several canyons between the coast on the Gulf of Mexico and the hinterland. Characteristic in this race is that about 100 miles lead over washboard-like bumps, a real endurance test for man and machine.
All-German Motorsports Jimco had the AGM X6 SCORE Trophy-Truck prepared for this challenge. Eibach springs partners had produced long after the team had to the season opener, find the Laughlin Desert Challenge in January, that you still can obstruct longer springs. Partner with the Fox shock were adjusted accordingly, with partner Danzio was further refined the engine performance.
This preparation has been successful ".. I was really happy because the truck was very fast, he was from the performance point very well, especially in the very, very bumpy and hard sections, the truck did everything we wanted," sums up Black . Accordingly, the race went well at first, although the hunt on the washboard was not without minor problems.
How fast the Trophy-Truck was traveling, a glance at the intermediary results: After around 70 miles Black was in third place overall. However, cracks in the meantime a bracket on the frame from which holds the tank. "We had this with welding repair, which cost us about 20 minutes," says Black.

At mile 158, but got the final out. Ten miles before he was handed over to the Trophy Truck colleague and team boss Martin Christensen, remained black with a drive damage lie. All programs continued to function, but lacked the thrust. The reason for this is unclear, but is done very easily in the next few days.
Despite the failure of a positive conclusion
Even if it did not work out with the expected finish in the top 10, is black with a performance at the San Felipe 250 satisfied. "I see it positively, because we finally were able to take full and were there for the music at mile 70 We were in third place, and that was very good. We have noticed that with the new springs and settings from driving her much better off than the season opener in Laughlin. "
"The performance was good, so I imagine the truck. We now need to clarify just quickly, what problem have we held back on the drive side. We had all new parts in it, even in the gearbox and the rear axle. And I'm sure that with our partners Fortin, who tirelessly with us in developing, can find and fix the cause. "
The previous tests in the run up to the Baja 250 were purely the vote in order to compete with the much heavier competitors. Now it comes to durability, and also wants the AGM team have a firm grasp quickly.
