Looks like they had an issue today while prerunning in Baja, not sure what the issue was......

That is Cody's car not RG. However, the guy needs to focus on doing something 100%. Seems like he tries to take on everything by himself and appears to do a half ass job regardless of the effort put in. I think the guy works 120% harder than most but damn its just been miss after miss. His UTV racing efforts so far have been a joke.

700 Last week of November and 750+ first week of December.
I think you're damn close, going off their numbers given.
I will say, since they were loading HIGH 200's in a container two weeks ago, I think they will be ahead of schedule.
I am hoping for #814 around Thanksgiving.

I thought they were still working out some of the tuning with the Speed Key and that was the delay.

The original delay was they used Chinese ecu’s and they weren’t performing.. they ended up switching them all to Bosch and now it’s working

Dave, maybe I'm wrong but they have been using Emtron ECUs from the beginning and still are. Or maybe the first cars only had Emtron?

I'm #792 and I am really hoping that I have my car for Desert Bash.

Speed sure likes zip ties. Seems like alot of them for a production unit. I wasn't impressed with the zip ties on the roll cage for the light bar power wires. I'm not sure if it last minute changes or poor planning. On the upside at least they cut them clean.

Interesting - I thought they were using ECUs from some company in Australia.

Speed key is going to = engine issues. If the motor could handle that power consistently why not have it standard. That whole deal would make me very nervous on a two year tested motor. How much time was with the speed key?

Not many want to run E85 to have 300hp. It doubt many, if any, desert riders need the 300 hp and want to deal with less fuel mileage and hassle of finding E85. For those dune trips E85 tune is fun times.

That new wrap looks really good. The Speed UTV looks good with those paddle too.

The #187 car was the best looking one out of the group. Simple and clean looking. The number was a bonus. Congrats to that guy. My wife was hoping it was for sale. 😶

Wasn't RG part of RZR and Artic Cat? He can live stream shit talk about these cars all day long. We all can
How did the RZR and Artic look when he was involved? Didn't he invent the RZR? Apparently they must have been perfect

It's no secret crashing a speed is better than crashing a can am or polaris. That's the one thing they can claim. But we know that already. No need to go live. You own the company RG, act like it

I have not been on the speed website. Are the graphics more or less unlimited?
There are some cool combos so far

I am not sold on the RG engine and trans, its under powered and the trans has already had a lot of issues and it seems to eat belts and CVs.

The car is hands down the best looking car, sitting at the sand show it looks great, im going tomorrow so ill check them out. Me personally I dont give a shit how something looks when im in the middle of baja, I want to know im most likely gonna get out of there as long as im not stupid........thats the difference to me.

Same, we do big mile rides 500-800 mile rides all the time and usually 3000-5000 mile seasons. I need a car that will finish everytime. All cars will need prep (even speeds) to keep up with that mileage.

Talking to Nick the axle thing is still a problem, sounds like they figured out the belt thing.

It’s still kind of hot, but I’m excited to get a ride in it.
