Mitch Guthrie – 1st Overall at 2012 UTV King of The Hammers

Mitch Guthrie, #555 took the overall win at 2012 UTV King of the Hammers in his Polaris RZR XP.  Guthrie ran a flawless race, keeping a fast pace that gained momentum with each race mile.  Todd Stephenson in the #1944 Artic Cat Wildcat took 2nd, making it an impressive first run for the Artic Cat Wildcat.

FOUNTAIN VALLEY – Radflo Suspension will be soaking up the toughest terrain in America when put to the ultimate challenge at the 2012 Griffin King of the Hammers.  There will be multiple Ultra4 cars in the event that will be racing on Radflo Suspension including Cottin Rodd, Nick Nelson, JT Taylor and Derek West among many others.  “We will be on the lakebed supporting all the teams using Radflo Products and will be assisting with race car set up the week before the race,” explained Glenn Classen, President of Radflo Suspension Technology.

Typically the King of the Hammers Ultra4 cars are using a combination of the Radflo 2.5 Bypass, 2.0 Coilover and 2.0 Bump Stops.  Between the vehicle height and weight, and the extreme need for flex in the fast desert and rock crawling, these vehicles demand a suspension that will handle the abuse and not wear out.  “We had a lot of success at last years King of the Hammers and look forward to cheering more of the teams to the finish line this year,” said Classen.

Radflo Suspension will be on Shock Tuners Row in the Vendor area where Glenn will be on hand to answer any questions that you have about Radflo Suspension in correlation to your specific vehicle.  Radflo will be on the lakebed from February 3rd to February 10th. If you are interested in having your Radflo suspension tuned, please email info@radflo.com or call 714 965-7828 to set up a date and time.
