My thoughts as well.

And is Gordon gonna sue anyone that Tries to development something?

Good grief. 🙄

I asked the dealer I bought my RZR from if he was going to sell the speed cars, and he said something very similar to this. That he’s going to watch them, and he likes the cars, but that Robby has fucking sued everyone he’s ever worked with / for. 😂

At a minimum, he will make a video bashing them :D
And millions he’s already said it was about a $250 million venture to get to this point they can make that back with the 18,000 or 16,000 or whatever or sold. There was an interview with Todd last year in sand Hollow at one of the utv’s events, they’ve already stated they don’t plan on getting as big as the ones that catch on fire and roll over plus and Can-Am and they don’t have to, but they have to make these cars reliable in the meantime.

I don’t think you’re gonna need much to be honest this stuff is already heavier than most of the other cars in its class I wasn’t concentrating the photo on the sway bars links and steering tie rods but you can see some of what I was saying.

Exactly. While its a cool design and could be badass for a road race car or even a purpose built offroad car I dont think that design is great for a mass market UTV.......We'll see.

Glamis?! Glamis is the all-inclusive resort of off road activities.

Baja or KOH is the true test.

I love Glamis but there is nothing challenging about it lol

The challenge is getting up early enough to see all the shadows, after you've been drinking all night! 😁

Rubber band cars do not belong in the dunes...

Let's see some desert action! 👍🏼👍🏼

Glamis has a way of finding the weak spots faster. Wait for Camp RZR weekend and the carnage pictures start appearing from all those that find witches eyes or decide to launch off the top of a dune they thought was flat.

Drive at night it is more challenging. LOL!

LOL! The challenge is getting the camp to go for an early morning ride before the rest of Glamis starts heading to the dunes.

Yep.

There are a few of us that are back before most of the camp wakes up.

The folks that are out when the sun is high in the sky are the ones who end up in the witch eyes. 🙄

Glamis has more complete idiots driving UTVs than anywhere. They have the most unqualified drivers out of everywhere also which will put these units to the test doing completly stupid things. Throw it into a witches eye at 80 and lets see how they hold up.

Most people going to Baja have a little experience and don't drive quite as dumb. Keyword is MOST.

Some of us try to get out super early and get back as the rest of the camp is finishing breakfast and ready to go out. That high sun is the worst especially late in the season in March/April.

I have been to Ocotillo and some other desert areas and some of the UTV drivers out there do some interesting stuff.

Baja you tend to be calmer until your buddy tries to pass you on the beach or on one of the longer straight section along the coast. LOL! One year we had a guy miss a turn on the road heading from the beach back toward Santo Tomas (that rally style road). He missed a turn and flew off the road and landed about 50' down and somehow managed to stay on all 4 wheels. Went through some cactus to get back up on the road. He made it to the highway with some fresh dents in his Wildcat XX frame and four tires that looked like they collected all the cactus spines. LOL!!

THIS^^^^ If you've ever been in a race, two things go through your head when a heli comes by with a guy hanging out pointing a camera at you....
1) SHIT!!! Im about to get my doors blown off by somebody REALLLLLY fast... WHERE IS HE ?!?!?!
2) NICE!!! This heli is filming me, Im gonna pick up the pace and show them how fast I am... which in my case is usually followed by my right seat saying "Stop trying to impress the heli, ignore him!!!" Hahahaha.

Would you like to wager? haha

The collective age of the Speed UTV owners might be just high enough now that they will not drive them enough in the dunes to mess them up. They were much younger when they ordered them. LMAO!!!!

My guess is they will all gather at the bottom of Olds and check each others cars out as they all rock the Speed shoes and shirts. LMAO!!

This guy mentions “bleeding the cooling system“. As mentioned by someone previously in this thread, it might be worth looking into.
Edit: it was mentioned in the other thread.

I get it it’s funny, but I’ve only been in line a year and a half. I don’t think everybody bought in at the sand show in 2019 and sold their shit the next day.
And I’ll tell you what if 4 years from today they will give me a car for a $1500 down payment today and a total cost of say 40 k which is 9 k more then the deal I have now I would buy into it again today. But still keep the one I have coming.

Dave,

Can you quickly put 500 miles on it so you can run the speed key with e85 so the engine runs coolers? Or can you run e85 now and maybe that will solve it?

They didn’t. That’s why I finished in front of Robby. Max, his son, smoked the shit outta me in the technical stuff though lol

Doh!

I didn't say finish. 😜

But, they did run for more than 10 min without overheating, right?

Or? 🤷‍♂️

Made it from Ensenada all the way to Bay Of L.A. without overheating as far as I know but I think the race cars are running a different/bigger radiator if I remember right.

Max pulled in next to me at the gas station in Bay of LA with clutch issues. That was the first issue they had I believe.

Lol!

It was easy picking on you BMW/Golf cart with dirt tires crowd back when they introduced the Rhino, but 18 years later I'm sure some of these side by sides aren't so gay. They'll never be dirt bike on a MX track cool but that's how it goes. Carry on. 🤘 ;) 🤘

4 wheel drive, independent suspension, with Way over 20" of wheel travel and plenty of HP, is anything But gay.

Have Dave take you for a ride in his.

It's definitely not dirt bike cool, but you Will be blown away. 👍🏼
