Speed UTV

Nikal what did you think of the fix they came up with to address the steering?   

I found it Interesting, I’m not quite sure what was going on at the rack to begin with. In the past there was speculation that there was flex where the tie rod & rack mount together. But it was never confirmed, until now I guess? It was said a few months ago they reduced some of the PS flex hoses for solid hose and that reduced some of the feedback. But clearly stiffening up the rack was the ultimate fix. Robby admitted they were locked in and committed when designing & moving the inner pivots in so close and mounting the rack to the bulk head. 

Until I can see exactly what they did, I won’t really understand it. But it’s pretty awesome & humbling to know they spent all the effort and brought all those expert PS guys like Howe, Lee etc.. in to help them figure it out. I could see allot of companies just letting it go, or fixing in on the Gen 2 or Gen 3 models. 
 

Same could be said for the $250K door latch & alinement fix. That’s serious commitment to making it right the first time, especially with all the pressure to just get a car out in to the market.

Saw the car Wednesday and man I did not like the door latches like that. Rear passengers would pay the price for sure. So happy they fixed that. 
surprised at a lot of little things that made me smile. 
seats - hands down one of the best for stock.  Even my fat ass felt good in them. 
tilt wheel tilts the dash also. 
ride height - way higher than my can am. Wasn’t expecting that. 
belt housing cover - two clamps vs 14 effing useless screws. 
3000 miles out of a set of tires. 
walked away feeling good about my deposit a long time ago. So many new options added sense then, my rep told me to go through them again and he will be calling in May.

It could be very cool to have an "Early" model, gen 1 or whatever...

Isn't that the difference here?  Because an MFG like Polaris is just like

Not even apples to oranges. 
But if Robbie made a great chili mix and did away with the rubber band, I would consider it.

I thought they were teaming with Hisun Motors in McKinney,TX but now I’m hearing they are in their own building. Don’t know if it’s in TX or not. Anyone have any details?

They have their own section at the Hisun facility.  Still being assembled in TX.  The Hisun property in TX is huge.

Lol! Robby is a smart dude and cannot get out of the way from his own ego! This will end up just like his previous ventures.

 

The reason why LOTD cant see the forest thru the trees is, he has no business sense and is only caught up in the hype of a possible "GAME CHANGER" and the engineering. Why do you think Polaris, Can Am, Honda ect dont design a UTV to this level? It just doesn't pencil!

 

I sure hope all of you either get your car or your $$ back.....Just don't be a sheep!

 

Are we allowed to go past 200?! 

The reason those manufacturers don’t design/build their cars to this level is because they truly don’t understand what their customers want.  Sure, plenty of their customers want to cruise around the neighborhood and maybe hit a dirt road every now and then. However, there is a massive segment of the off-road community being overlooked. Why do you think the aftermarket performance industry has been thriving these past years.

This has always been the case.

MFG build to the most popular segment that will buy their product.

True sport models hitting their maximum potential will always need an outside shop, builder or parts supplier. Toys at that level are simply too specific in their use to meet needs of the masses. Not to mention liabilities that will follow when newbs wad up their shit.

so it has a flex fuel sensor that can run any ratio/mix of e85 and 91 and adjust accordingly?

That is correct @John@Outfront   Here is a chart of it on the initial dyno run without any adjustments. Made over their targeted numbers and actually had to detune it to get to the 225 and 300 hp numbers.

Definitely gots some good torque. That’s probably what most people who have ridden in it are feeling when they say it’s fast. I wonder how the torque numbers and curve look on the new Polaris and Canams?? Not hating just curious. Think my Hayabusa  powered car had about 90 ft. Pds. Of torque and 180 horsepower. Definitely needed more torque at slow speed. This thing should have plenty.

this thread stalls worse than briscut at 5am.... come on guys keep it going... we're on the road to 200.....

 

I heard that you'll get a ticket if you fuel the speed UTV on the sand from a non carb compliant fuel container.... Discuss amongst yourselves..... go....

Finally! Something I can relate too! :lol:

For what it’s worth its firing both cylinders at the same time (not opposed) and dual injectors per cylinder.

This is unlike anything I’ve ever seen in a side-by-side and possibly even in the Sandune custom application one off stuff.
