Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

As most of you know, I have O.A.D.D. - Offroad Attention Deficit Disorder. "My thing" is sort of buying cars, getting them perfect, then selling them to start the whole process over again.

As you probably know I just picked this car up at the start of the season. I planned/hoped to have a lot of time in Glamis this year like I had in the past. Well, life and work just didn't allow for it and so far I've only had 2 trips all season. We have dirt-season about to start up where I live (north of Sacramento, at the foothills of the Sierras) and I want to pick myself up another RZR (Melissa still has her '18 XP Turbo Fox Edition). I really don't want to go back down the road of having 3 off road toys, so the BFD has to go.

Again, this thing is super clean and shows like new. The trailing arms aren't all sand-blasted like every other car out there, the powder coat on the aluminum still shines like new, the Rigged LED lenses aren't sand blasted out, the windshield isn't pitted or scratched, etc. etc.

If you went to the Sand Sports Super Show this summer this was the red BFD Revo in BFD's booth - as you saw it was basically brand new at that point. Since then I've put very little time on it with only 2 trips to G, during which I sent it back to LRS for some upgrades (listed below) so I didn't even run it the whole time.

I like a car that is 110% dialed-in and ready to go, so before I even took it out the car was prepped. Since then I've had LRS change/add:

  • Removed super-narrow Method beadlock wheels with "sucked in" STUs that did not complement the incredible handing of the car
  • Added DWT billet beadlock wheels with 33" Baja Pro front ("shaved/buffed") and 14.5-15 Dune Sport rears (aka "a Funco setup"). Being a mid-engine with a 96" wheelbase this car already turned on a dime and handled better than any of my previous cars, but the Baja Pro/Dune Sport setup was the icing on the cake. This is one of the most fun cars you'll ever dune short of a 1000+ HP Gen 6/GT-whatever Funco
  • Custom dead-pedal (aka foot-rest for your left foot when it's not on the clutch)
  • Re-fabbed exhaust to move the muffler out from underneath the fuel cell (safety first)
  • Holley Hydramat (the pickup in the car ran to the bottom of the cell, made a 180 and went about 1/3rd of the way back UP in the cell, so you'd never use more than 2/3rds of the fuel)
  • Added relay triggered by ignition key for seat heaters (to prevent accidentally leaving them on overnight and having a dead battery - yes I'm that ridiculous, everything has to be RIGHT)
  • Added boost-gauge (just fun to watch, but also good to monitor and I had planned to "turn it up" later)
  • All new CV-boots. Full disclosure: one cracked, so I figured the rest were about to go. We replaced the CV that got sand in it with a brand new unit, but cleaned the old one up for a spare, there are now 3 total spare CVs with the car, 2 are brand new (I forgot they came with the car when we bought the new one - d'oh)
  • All CVs serviced while doing boots
  • Fresh plugs
  • Fresh fuel filters (removed pre-filter because the Holley Hydramat acts as a pre-filter, replaced post-filter)
  • All fresh fluids
  • Serviced air filter + spare filter

I'm sure there's more I'm forgetting, but as always no corners were cut and it was "maintained with an open checkbook" exclusively by LRS.

Asking: $33,500 including the Baja Pros/Dunesports on DWT beadlocks, dirt tires on Method non-beadlocks, and the Method beadlock wheels (wheels ONLY), all spares, etc.

This car is 100% ready to go and will be in Glamis 27 MAR - 3 APR if you'd like to see it in person. I also have a DVD with DOZENS of pictures of the build of this car. You can see all the care and detail that went into it, as well as how everything is wired and plumbed so you'll never have to wonder where something is or how it was built.

NOTE - PICS SHOW A MIX OF THE DIFFERENT WHEELS/TIRES AND EXHAUST, I'm horrible at actually taking pictures when I'm out, so I don't have a pic on the DWTs all the way around and the final exhaust config. Come see it in the dunes next week for a full view!

This is honestly one of the most fun dune cars I've ever driven. It can run the big stuff with any fast group you want, no problem, but it can also run the tight, technical smaller dunes better than any of the "big" cars.  Don't let the travel numbers fool you, we have our Fox super well dialed in and my Z1 had a top-notch HCR long travel with big Internal Bypass Kings and I can carry WAY more speed comfortably with this car. I'm way more confident and don't tap-out on drops and G-outs like the RZRs do (even when setup right). Sure, a Can Ma'am might have 22"/24" of wheel travel but this will dune circles around one.

Also, the cab is VERY roomy. I'm about 6' and pretty fat these days (yeah, I need to work on it) and I fit great. It is way roomier inside than a RZR.

Feel free to PM me with any questions and I'll shoot you my phone number so we can chat.

-TJ

My first reaction was laughing to myself! 2nd was someone will get a dialed car that's way more fun than a SxS!

I sat in this car and was surprised at how much room there is inside. Don't fool yourself if you think its too small.

Great car!

Thanks Matt!  As you know, I'm a little bit crazy.  And I agree, this thing is WAY more fun than a SxS (and I've duned everything from my Z1 at over 30psi of boost on E85 with the HCR LT to the Can Ma'am X3s to our old 900 to our current XPT).  I'm not a SxS hater, but in the dunes nothing beats a WELL SETUP rail for how it works and how fun it is.  It's just been too many years since we've had enough time in Glamis to justify it over a RZR for the other ~8 months a year for us, especially being 1-2hrs from at least half a dozen awesome riding areas in the Sierras and foothills now.  I'd love to keep this car and ALSO get myself another RZR but it just doesn't make sense for time, space, money, etc.

TJ is the exact person you want to buy anything used from. He spares no expense and goes over the top on maintenance/repairs,etc. Some might say he's anal but really his sex life shouldn't be a factor if you're looking for a nice clean car. haha

Yup, this thing actually defines the term "like new" you see in so many for sale posts!

For anyone on the fence here's a comparison for you.

 

A Can Am X3 turbo is almost the same exact weight as these cars.   Very close anyway.

The X3 advertises 172 HP but at the wheels they put down 120 +/-. Locally here  they are almost always under..

With a tune, turbo, injectors, exhaust, and inter-cooler upgrade my tuners X3 4 seater put down 175 at the wheels. It feels pretty damn fast as well.

 

On the  same dyno on the same day my Revo with a very similar motor ( mine is an LE5 2.4 with the same LSJ blower ) to the one for sale here put down 228.  Compared to a normal X3 or Turbo S RZR this is a rocket ship..lol

Thanks for the input, and I agree 100%.  Like I was saying Melissa's 2018 XPT Fox Edition is very nicely setup, with probably 155ish RWHP.  While not a long travel it has the Internal Bypass Fox shocks (obv, being the Fox Edition) and Ed "The Suspension" guy completely redid them (all new Eibach springs top and bottom, real cross-over rings, and of course Ed's valving).  The XPT is awesome, and I can keep up on any dune ride, but there is simply no comparison to the Revo. 

 

The Revo is way more stable and fun.  I've never had a problem rolling RZRs *knock on wood* but the Revo stays so much flatter and more stable and slides in a way even my HCR long-traveled Z1 RZR didn't.  It also turns around even quicker than a 2 seat RZR when you want it to.  The really surprising part is it soaks up big drops and G-outs better than any SxS I've driven, including setup X3s that (at least on paper) have more travel. 

Then there's the power.  Like you said even though it doesn't have Horsepower Wars numbers, it's a blast.  The power to weight is definitely better than a X3 or Turbo RZR and there's just no replacement for a real transmission and shifting gears. 

 

Another thing I like with this car though, is the motor itself is 100% un-touched GM.  The computer, harness, and necessary adapters to run it in a rail are all CBM and it was a complete CBM package, but the motor itself is internally untouched and totally GM.  I'm sure you've all followed my various trials and tribulations with my other "big" cars.  I'm a firm believer in an untouched GM motor that was built from the get-go for boost.  And that's another thing, this is running stock pullies and the gauge shows right on factory boost levels - so there's only room to go up from here.  Hot Rod made over 370 HP with just a blower-swap and different cams on an otherwise bone-stock LSJ...

Im still secretly hoping the doesn't sell too quickly..

My buddy had a full season of issues with his highly modified RZR then ended his season with him buying a new complete motor from Polaris for like $5K.

Easter is our 1st trip and I all but have him pushed off the fence to buy this car and then ditch the RZR. 

I may even sabotage his machine next week but really have a feeling I wont have to. ...

 

Bob, If you're reading this hurry up and just make him an offer ...LOL
