Jordan Townsend is the driver of the Borla Performance JRT Off-road Racing #4580 car, a 4500 Class Ultra4 racer based on a 2004 Jeep Wrangler.
4x4 Suspension Parts that Take a Beating
Jordan uses Barnes’ Ultra100 Link Brackets for all chassis suspension mounts at frame and upper axle, and Ultra 100 Angled Control Arm Mounts for all lower axle applications. Check out this picture of his axle during fabrication.
Jordan’s Rig Before
Before adding Barnes off road parts, Jordan’s old mounts had to be thoroughly inspected and straightened after every race.
Jordan’s Rig After
According to Jordan, “Use of Barnes 4wd brackets have improved the performance, strength and reliability of my race car. The lightweight high strength Ultra100 steel allows for a thinner material to be used, reducing the overall weight while still increasing strength. These parts have all taken an absolute beating and are no worse for wear.”
