Take a first-hand look at ARB’s new Old Man Emu BP-51 suspension, put through it's paces at the Jeep Australasian Safari Tour.
We got a first-hand look at ARB’s new Old Man Emu BP-51 suspension at last week’s Australasian Safari where long time campaigner, Reg Owen was running a development set underneath his Isuzu MUX off road racer.
Reg says the new by-pass coil-overs performed flawlessly in the gruelling race and the only time they pulled them out over the six days of competition was to fine tune the piston shim stack in the rears for the race conditions.
Picking up a BP-51 strut from Reg’s trailer after the event it is obvious the quality of these units is top notch. The aircraft quality hard anodized strut with its internal by-pass system is beautifully made and should be up to the task of any recreational off road adventure as well as extremes like the Safari.
The OME BP-51 has been launched by ARB in a limited range of applications with more to be available soon.
