Rislone Defender Featured in New Monster Truck Destruction Game for iOS

Holly, MI (Dec 13, 2012) — The Rislone® Defender monster truck is featured in ODD Games’ new Monster Truck Destruction game launching today through Apple’s App Store. Players choose monster trucks to crush obstacles, race competitors and hear the roar of the crowd, just like Rislone Defender driver Zach Adams does in real life most weekends.

The Rislone Defender is easily identified by its bright yellow and red color scheme highlighted by the Rislone Mad Scientist clutching a bottle of Rislone Fuel Injector Cleaner. In a game that emphasizes power and performance, Rislone Fuel Injector Cleaner fits right in. It’s a complete fuel system tune-up, designed to maximize vehicle power, performance and mileage.

“We’ve been involved in motorsports for decades and have sponsored the Rislone Defender monster truck for the past five years,” said Clay Parks, Rislone vice president of development. “Driver Zach Adams and his truck do a great job of showcasing our Fuel Injector Cleaner to thousands of monster truck fans every year. We’re excited to see the game in action and can’t wait to ‘get behind the wheel’ ourselves!”

Everything in the game can be bent, broken or destroyed. Developers at ODD Games worked for two years to develop a dynamic damage system and realistic driving physics. Even the arenas are realistic, with cheering crowds, course obstacles and sponsor signage. Trucks can race and do tricks, like slap wheelies and back flips. Multiple camera angles let players check out the view from the cockpit, behind the truck, TV mode and more.

Players can choose from 30 trucks. In addition to the Rislone Defender, there are classics like Bigfoot, Bear Foot, USA-1 and Carolina Crusher. Players can even upgrade their vehicles with performance parts. Photos may be taken during gameplay and easily shared on Facebook or Twitter.

The game will be available for all iOS devices, including the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. It will cost 99 cents. An Android version will follow in early 2013.

Falcon F7 on Display in the Rislone Products Booth at AAPEX

This year in our AAPEX booth (#4416), we’re featuring a beastly Michigan-made horizontal rollercoaster known as the Falcon F7. Its looks are one thing — they stop people dead in their tracks. But the Falcon’s specs are what really raise eyebrows:

  • Body: paint-finished carbon fiber
  • Engine: LS7 Corvette engine — 7.0L, 427 c.i. supercharged V8, 620 HP, 585 lb/ft torque @ 5400 rpm
  • 0-60: Approx 3.3-3.6 seconds
  • Top Speed: Approx. 190-200 MPH
  • 1/4 Mile: 10.9 seconds
  • Lateral Acceleration: 1.1-1.3g maximum
  • 60-0 Braking: Under 100 ft.

The people behind Falcon are as passionate about building a real-world supercar as we are making automotive chemicals that rise above the rest and work as promised. So far, this car is the star of the show. If you’re at AAPEX in Vegas, be sure to come by and see this monster in person in booth #4416.

2012 Supercharged 6.2L Ford Raptor SVT, 0-65 MPH Run

One of our team members demonstrates his 2012 Raptor SVT’s power from a very slow roll. The truck has the big 6.2L V8, but modified with a supercharger, new heads, new injectors, an ECU map and a totally revamped full exhaust (headers plus catback system).

If you think it’s impressive on pavement, wait until we post what it can do on the sand dunes.
