The second event at Top Truck Challenge 2015 is the Frame Twister, which as the name suggests is a course designed to test suspension flex and driveline strength. Competitors are given twenty minutes to complete this relentless course, which features obstacles like the squeeze rock, a section of giant facing boulders that must be navigated expertly to avoid broken axles, driveshafts and suspension. After the competitors make it through the Squeeze Rock it’s onto the log section which is where the real torture begins. Logs placed in a perpendicular orientation with deep water filled trenches in between swallow tires and will find the weakest link in a matter of seconds. Following the log section are huge tree roots that are tackled with wet slimy tires with a section of culvert pipes and tires just in case the wet logs, squeeze rock and roots didn’t toughly test the truck.
