Here's another fast last name: Baldwin. Some first names? How about B.J., Josh, Jason, and Nick? Nick's Riviera Racing Trophy Truck is as trick and scratch-built as they come. The engine is shoved rearward in the 4130 chrome-moly tube chassis to make room for monster-sized control arms that pivot from the truck's centerline. Both upper and lower control arms are crafted of 4130 chrome-moly plate. The lower arms show massive triangulation for strength, while the upper arms are J-shaped to clear equally monster-sized coilover and bypass shocks. Custom equal-tube-length headers snake their way from the truck's eight exhaust ports past the front suspension, maximizing horsepower while maintaining tire clearance.
