Watch BJ Baldwin Bring His 800-HP Trophy Truck to Hoonigan’s Donut Garage
Seven time racing champion, two time solo Baja 100 winner, just wants to do a wheelie in a parking lot.
BJ Baldwin is a seven time off road racing champion, a two time solo Baja 100 winner, and is also the star of the online video series Recoil. Baldwin has been involved in desert racing for 20 years.
BJ Baldwin stopped by Hoonigan's Donut Garage on their 100th episode of their video series Daily Transmission. He brought his 800 hp Toyota Tundra based Trophy Truck named "Fedor", named after MMA Champion Fedor Emelianenko.
Baldwin does a walk around of his truck describing what it build for and how it excels. The truck runs in the Unlimited class for long distance desert racing in races such as the Baja 1000 and the Baja 500. The car is custom one off built on a tube frame chassis. The sole part that actually comes from a stock Toyota is the front Toyota branded grill. Suspension is a huge component of trophy trucks and BJ's truck features King quadruple bypass shocks along with coil overs. The front has 23 inches of wheel travel meanwhile the rear has 33 inches of rear travel. Baldwin comments that a regular production truck only has 6-7 inches of wheel travel even a Ford Raptor only has 9 inches of wheel travel. Hoonigan Brand Director Jon Chase was the designer of the livery on the car.
After giving the truck overview and giving some racing history BJ does what all who visit the Donut Garage do, he plays in his race car. At the beginning of the video Baldwin states his real reason for visiting. He wants to be the "First to do Wheelies at Hoonigan's Donut Garage".
BJ starts his loud demon truck and begins ripping donuts, "man line" figure eights, and continuously jumps off the loading dock. He comes inches to wrecking into some of the Hoonigan employee's personal cars. He crashes right into the loading dock when his suspension gets caught on it and his truck just shrugs it off.
He ends the video with some sick trophy truck donuts, but check the video to see if he succeeded in his goal of wheelies at the Donut Garage.
