How a STOCK Ford Raptor Can Survive Baja

When Ford released the Raptor back in 2010, it was in a class of its own. There was nothing like it, and to this day (the TRX isn’t out yet), holds the crown for the ultimate production off road pickup. And that’s because Ford went about building and testing this prehistoric 4 wheeler in one of the toughest terrains in the world. The Baja 1000 is one of the most extreme off-road races on the planet, pushing your machine to it’s limit. So how is the Raptor capable of tackling such extreme terrain with limited modifications? And why does Ford let you buy one of these? And why do they give you a full factory warranty as well!? Today we are going to look at both versions of Baja tested Raptor - the SVT Raptor R, and the Ford Raptor Race truck!

Actually it's not a 3" lift kit. It's a rear leaf spring with 3 inches more arch and they remove the block that was between the stock spring and the axle. The 6.2 is also more of a big block as compared to a 5.0 or coyote which are single spark plug.

Raptor: 30 Hours at 100mph in the desert, under warranty works like brand new. TRX: : Let's race at street lights to see who's truck is better.

You could literally mid-travel (coilovers/UCA/rearshocks/springs) any truck and "finish" Baja, if you didn't go and completely trash the truck. It's likel 40% of the vehicles don't finish because they're actually competing for time, and not just to finish. The raptor is a bad truck don't get me wrong, it's far from a Baja Race machine. It's a F - 150 with a 6.2 and a mid travel kit. You could do that to almost any half ton truck and it will be less expensive.

Ford is killing it right now. I can't say I agree with every decision Ford has made like eliminating the Focus ST or Fiesta ST but I think this is my personal favorite car brand. I have owned 3 cars in my life and all have been Fords haha. Including my 1998 explorer which is a special truck to me.

Funny how non off-road people think the Raptor is the end all be all until they find out that real long travel suspension has 2 to 3 times more travel than the Raptor.

Hope the Gen 2 Ecoboosts are better than the Gen 1’s. Mine gave me a ton of issues. Sold it and now I have the 5.0.

I love my truck and i'd keep it over the TRX. I love the TRX, but let's see the TRX make it through to the finish line at the Baja 1000 then we can have a better discussion. All that power is dope, but having trophy truck power with regular suspension (2.5 shocks) ain't gonna do you any good.

Musk Tweeted some time back that they are redesigning the Cybertruck's already great 16" air suspension to handle the Baja 1000. Looking forward to seeing it run that race :) At this point I am expecting that to be next years Baja 1000 as not heard anything about it for some time. (they have a prototype battery capable of doing 3,650 miles which would solve the issue of what to do about charging.)

Wait what 2010?? They werent until 2015, and became popular in 2018. And honestly I've never seen a "Gen 1". Unless it's the literal exact same design and size...also not really a "super truck" straight out the dealership. Still need to put work into it and customize it

Interestingly, the D-4S injection on the 86/BRZ runs Direct Injection at all times, and adds port for more power when you get on it. The reverse of what Ford apparently does with the Raptor.

The Pan-American Road Race (Carrera Panamericana) I think you folks there should do an "Up to speed" or SOMETHING on this one. There are 2 documentaries on ESpost: @ : THE LAST GREAT ROAD RACE | La Carrera Panamericana [Feature Doc] And, @ : Classic Races - Ep02 : Carrera Panamericana (documentary) HD La Carrera Panamericana = The Pan-American (road) Race. From October 28th to November 4th 1988That ran from the USA / Mexico border to Tuxtla Gutiérrez, Chiapas in Mexico. If you do a little Google mapping, You will find that Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua in Mexico is just south of El Paso Texas Very near the USA border. With a little more G. Mapping, the race ran approximately 1,700 (Approximately 2,700 km.) Miles down the length of Mexico! Almost to Guatemala In Mexico. So that road race covered that distance in 8 days from Friday October 28th 1988 (I Just looked up the 1988 calendar.) through Friday November 4th 1988, I'm not too sure on other years it may have been run. Your 24 Hours of Le Mans does not hold a candle to what this one was!

I love both Dakar and baja, but baja takes the cake in toughest anybody else that says so has obviously never seen the trails in the baja 1000, sometimes there’s not even a trail you have to make your own. Even Dakar racers found it harder just search up darker racers compete in baja and you’ll hear for yourself!

Ford should make a Barra Baja Ranger, Mustang, Bronco and even the F150 with a Barra trim. To replace the base model's or just a Barra trim for enthusiasts. They'll probably lose V8 sales if they did that so probably not.
