–The Ford Bronco is one of the most iconic and prolific Sports Utility Vehicles ever produced. More than just a family hauler, it has also been a favorite among off-roading enthusiasts, thanks to its standard four wheel drive and low range gearing – especially the fourth and fifth generation trucks built on the robust F-Series chassis. Now, Hedman Hedders has direct replacement 50-state legal short tube headers for 1986-1996 Ford Broncos that replace the worn out factory manifolds and help their 302cid or 351cid Windsor V8 engines breathe.

Lake Elsinore, Calif.
– Team Kawasaki IMG Motorsports is just weeks away from their debut in the 25th Annual Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles in Morocco Africa, an all female race that doesn’t reward speed, rather a team’s skill at navigating the shortest distance point to point (without the aid of GPS).

Team Kawasaki IMG Motorsports will be challenged with plotting their route using only maps, a plotter and a compass on an unmarked course that can take longer than Sunrise to Sunset to reach the goal checkpoints in the day.  Each morning they will receive their Map along with a Coordinate or Distance and Heading to checkpoint 1 and once there they will recieve a “Road Book” containing geographic coordinates and or headings and distance of the day’s checkpoints and last checkpoint of the day being their Bivouac where they do all they can to recover and prepare for the next day.  The course is completely off-road and redesigned each year, making this rally not just physically exhausting but also mentally taxing.
