Didn't realize there was THAT much difference in the stance.

Does the Canned Ham have its stock suspension?
I have a standard xp41000 and it's 64" wide where the can am is 72" wide
That's probably the extra weight for a 2 seater at over 1800# plus the thicker roll cage where the xp4 is over 1660#

@RiverDave

If you are tuned do you need a can of octane booster for the Alamo ride? I have one extra I am bringing.

Dave's view when I gapped him 2 times and his shit was secretly tuned aka (not telling me) View attachment 834209
Hey Winkie you almost blew your shit up on a race gas 200+ HP tune.. I put a tuner in the car with the weakest tune it had so figure I added about 10 HP.. Not 60.. LOL Plus on 34's, Plus a spare, plus a passenger.

Mine's on stock tires right now and ready to roll.. Are you ready to give up your trophy sir William?

It does NOT require 91 octane fuel? We are just making 87 into 92. One can will do 2 tanks from 87 to 92. We aren’t making race gas here, just safety.

How often do belts break on the CanAms? Watching the Dakar race the last few days and it looks like the SxS's are constantly stopping to fix broken belts.

Depends a lot on how it is driven, and the belt temps. You can easily get over 1000 miles on a belt, or get 50 miles if you abuse it.

So much goes into those races. I think the name plate on the side might be one of the least items contributing.

Just saying :D
