Good info RD.I talked to speed yesterday when I added a few more options. They said my car would be done late feb / early March.
I asked them if I needed to pay the invoice now, and they said no. It is just a confirmation of what’s ordered.
they didn’t say it directly but I got the impression they are building the first couple hundred cars right now behind the scenes.
When they ask for the payment I am going to pay it.
Beautiful car, as all of your cars have been.
That would be great, I have heard a lot of good things about Ed. I'm in the midst of planning a Glamis trip now, not sure if it will happen soon or in the fall. Looking forward to getting back down there and also to Dumont.I was out there yesterday testing the new to me car. Got a few issues to sort out with the handling. Other than that I cant keep the front wheels on the ground
Ed the Suspension guy is set up on Roadrunner, money well spent to have him set the car up, otherwise you will be chasing solutions for years. If you need his contact info let me know.
Good looking car.View attachment 962070
and let’s remember you can buy 9 month old $60k SXS’s with 400 miles on them for $37k
A speed car will walk from my car, also won’t fit in my toy hauler.
Belts, fluids and lubrication are pretty affordable, as are CV’s vs 934’s and transaxle rebuilds of a V8 sand car.
My BIL is #482: Can’t wait to ride in it. He has been told early May

4 seater so second groupGood looking car.
Interesting he’s been told early May and RD has been told March. I know RD is a little further up the queue though.
RG said they would be built in groups of 400 to start.
Is your BIL master # 452, or 4 seater # 452? I am 4 seater # 699, so I will be in the second group. If he is #452 4 seater his will be built in the group with mine. RD is in the first build group.
when I get mine it’s going straight to Simpson, then when I get it back I will run it at night during the summer..4 seater so second group
He doesn’t care, he’s very involved with Wilson Motorsports class 1 car, his kids are grown.
He said it’s too hot by May anyways so he’s good with Any delays, has other time killers lol.
I swear I was passed by RG or someone in a 2 seater Speed Car yesterday. I don’t have a rearview mirror but I saw some extra dust out of my side mirror and thought someone is behind me, I need to find a place to pull over. Started looking forward and heard a rev of an engine and all I could see was a headlight in my side mirror and his motor noise above mine. lol It was really rocky terrain and we were alone, I wasn’t going fast at all.
I waved my arm out the window, he backed off and as soon as I could, I pulled over. There was an orange 2 seater followed by 3 Can Am’s heading out towards Rice Valley Wilderness area.
They stopped up ahead and I waved when I went bye. Kind of wanted to stop but didn’t want to bother him, if it was him. Was pretty funny.
We stopped up at a high point and watched the orange car walk away from the Can Am’s as they made their way across the desert.
Don’t know for sure but there aren’t a lot of orange 2 seaters out there...especially with 1 guy driving and 3 vehicles following. Funny story regardless.
No, he didn't talk about delivery dates. They showed pictures of production parts and talked about that the main production hold up is clutches. They have not received any production clutches and said they were calling the clutch manufacturer daily for updates.Was there any talk about production in last nights presentation, I watched most of it, but had to leave my office a few times.
Using kicker in myI haven’t watched today’s episode but they announced the stereo components will be kicker.
10,000+ units.. one hell of a sale
Glad I bought my Kicker components last week for my toonI haven’t watched today’s episode but they announced the stereo components will be kicker.

Putting a power adder on a SXS that didn’t come with one is a fools errand if you value your time and money.Two YXZ owners I know stop talking about their attempts to turbo them when their cost past $60K. Way, way past and beyond,, and still spending and still with issues.
You are $4k-5K in for any complete kit for a decent power adder. Sell what you got and buy one already built from the factory with a turbo. You are miles ahead.not always.. they made a pretty cool blower kit that I thought was decently priced?
Ive said this before and I hope Im wrong. where are the assembly line pics? Where is the material that will be assembled on this line? Or has it not been ordered since the product is not finalized. is the building ready to start? machinery set, utilities in place. is the front office staff ready? How many are employed today? id say 100 today to have a product to you in a few months wouldn't be enough. Are all the legal hurdles done without a final product ready for build and sell? This is something you need to register in a state.
Will you get a coupon for a Magic deck boat discount with purchase?
They are still testing. Im sorry but these things need to be in a create right now for you to get it in 30 days. Im hopefully skeptical, Im a very late buyer on one of these, like years from now. If I pay more thats fine.
I really hope you guys dont get screwed. This is company being funded by customers with no product. Sure these can be a success, but YOU are at risk.
If there are pictures Ive never seen then great, disregard my .02

I have 2 friends that put turbo kits on their YXZ's with zero issue at all. I can't remember which turbo kit they put on but I believe it was one that utilized most of the set-up for the snow mobile engines.Two YXZ owners I know stop talking about their attempts to turbo them when their cost past $60K.

Wifes says they went way way past $70K.
And now they have cars worth less than stock YXZs.I have 2 friends that put turbo kits on their YXZ's with zero issue at all. I can't remember which turbo kit they put on but I believe it was one that utilized most of the set-up for the snow mobile engines.

I think @TPC was fed some bad information on those prices, you could buy a Yamaha GYTR Factory Turbo for under 6 Grand, and bolt it on and go. Yeah you could change rods and pistons on the earlier models, but the 19 20 and 21 come factory turbo ready on the internals.And now they have cars worth less than stock YXZs.
I think the $60k figure might be high as well, but if you are paying a shop, and they do a “full build” I could see that “sucker’s” figure as you said.I think @TPC was fed some bad information on those prices, you could buy a Yamaha GYTR Factory Turbo for under 6 Grand, and bolt it on and go.

I did a featherweight flywheel, airbox mods, opened up the exhaust, and a flash tune, and this thing absolutely screams. The only time it could use more power is in the soft sand, but I'm only in that every once in a while.
I'm probably 25 on this thing all in, new ones can be had for 21k. I'm sure if you took a new one and dropped it off at Weller, they would gladly find a way to get your bill to 60k, but you would be a sucker.

I didn't mean to imply your post was wrong, just that the issue of no resale value is not an issue exclusive to the YXZ, its global.So now we are back to my original point.
If that truck was an extra cab short bed, it would probably be sold.
Considered mostly spent from resale point of view. I know I’d never pick up a used sxs with that mileage unless it was real cheap. But I’m real cheap.I don't know about that statement. There are a lot of guys on the X3 forum with well over 5K, and one guy with 35K. Stuff will obviously break like any off road vehicle, but with some maintenance they seem to actually be fairly durable.
That canam sold already!!!For Sale: Canam X3 72” 530+ HP *Title in hand*Everyone that has followed this build knows how well it has been put together. Built to be the only one of its kind. Built by XX Designs & Evolution Po...click to see more of this listingclassifieds.race-dezert.com
They are asking 80k for the can am no way someone is going to pay that no matter what the car is you never get what you put in it it could be a rhino or rzr you will never see a full return
5 years is the plan on the current SxS. Then it will be time to move on to something else.Sxs’s are cell phones, not boats
None hold their value after 5 years.
Then again, I chose to see my kids smile riding in my $37k machine vs watching it in a bank, but that’s me.
I post up the speed cars in case someone wants one a little less than buying one outright at this point.
