a new Stella III were added to meet
SCORE rules. Stella III is a GPS system
designed to prevent collisions, alert
officials of impacts and roll-overs, alert
drivers to dangers, log tracks and penalties, and to provide communications
between racers and officials.
Two days before the Baja 1000, we
got to see the scramble to finish the
#2906 Monster Maverick Max, along
with the preparation and stocking of
the five chase vehicles with every spare
imaginable and pallets of Monster
Energy drinks. ❏
RCV axles are wrapped with electrical tape for durability, and Burnett added Fox steering dampers and
heavy-duty tie-rods to the #2905 Monster Mav. Summers Brothers front and rear torsion bars are built

One-off Fox Factory shocks went on the #2906
with dual hoses going to the remote rear reservoirs,
and LSR’s suspension arms add strength and travel.
The OEM intake tract was used with a S&B Vortex

Ultracross R-Spec on an OMF beadlock wheel, and the Yoshimura exhaust is
rerouted for protection. Travel-limiter straps get a bungee cord to keep them

are used in both Monster Mavs, but the #2906 car used stock torsion bars

each race car,
alerts drivers to
and allows instant
racers. It’s all
about safety and
