Magpul Sponsors US “Breslau Adventure Rallye” Team

Tuesday, June 21st, 2011

Magpul has sponsored the first and only US team to ever enter the grueling Breslau Rallye. The Breslau Rallye takes place the 25th of June through the 2nd of July and goes from Breslau, Poland to Dresden, Germany in what is known as the biggest off-road race in Europe.

After four months of building in secret, “Bam Bam”, the Rallye Mog has landed safely via air freight in Europe.

Bam Bam was built by Jay Couch of Couch Off Road Engineering, (the guy responsible for the Magpul MBUS Mog build) and started life as a standard Mercedes Benz 1985 U1700 Unimog. They added a USA Cummings 24 valve turbo diesel as the powerplant. According the Magpul, “The power is turned up so much that the custom intercooler is the size of a small bed!”

Magpul went on the describe the build in even greater detail. “Stock axles were swapped out, exo-cage was added, quadruple bypass reservoir shocks installed, secondary radiator and a full drivetrain pressurization system was added to put light air pressure to the axels, transmission and transfer case. Even the engine starter was pneumatically plumbed to prevent water from entering.”

Good Luck Guys!
