  1. Highly recommend the RPM kit. I have over 1k miles on mine with 0 issues at 7psi on stock bottom end. For LT, the Fireball kit is hard to beat for the money. I am going to be going that route this month.
  2. They are a blast with some boost....in the dunes or from a roll the RZR and X3's aren't an issue, but from a dig I have a hard time with them. I think my problem is more traction related, but the belt driven cars have instant torque off the line. I am on a stock bottom end with 7psi, but planning on doing rods/pistons and upping the boost at the end of the season.
  3. I am running the RPM setup...K&T makes a very solid kit as well. Mine does get a little warm on a 90 degree day in Glamis, but nothing to worry about.
  4. Is Ocotillo packed on the big weekends? I'm only about an hour from Ocotillo.
  5. After several years of being out of the desert scene, I am now back and looking for a good group to go out with occasionally. I have a group of people that go out, but only 3-4 times a year. It's just my g-friend and I that usually go out. Low key couple (mid 30's) that prefers riding during the day, but will have a cocktail around the fire at night. I all of the sudden feel like I'm writing an online dating profile... Anyhow, if anyone is going to be out at Glamis over Halloween and wouldn't mind another rig in the group let me know. I have a 2016 Yamaha YXZ with an RPM Turbo, so would prefer other SxS's to ride with, but open to rails and bikes too.
  6. Mostly Anderson components...Spitfire glass, etc.
  7. I'm curious why you would say that the YXZ isn't built for trail riding? I have a turboed YXZ and it's a blast in all of the conditions you mentioned. I'm sure the XP is a fun machine as well, but anything belt driven and non-shifting is not my idea of fun. I just recently did a slow 30 mile trail ride by my house with no issues at all. The machine is very capable in that scenario, and a blast in the dunes as well. I never said it wouldn't work well for trail riding. It wouldn't work well for really slow speed rock crawling. Huge difference. The CVT multiplies the engine torque by a huge amount from 0 mph on up on any other brand of SxS. You can't do that for long with a clutch without smoking it, plus the stock gearing is too high. I would agree with the rock crawling statement in stock form, but then again I'm not sure anyone serious about rock crawling would be using a UTV =). To each their own, obviously, but my vote would be for the YXZ although my vote is partial.
  8. Bang for your buck I would say YXZ...13-15k right now on the 16 models. Put a clutch and a turbo in it and have one heck of a fun ride all while not worrying about your belt breaking or it catching fire.

  10. Way to completely take this topic off-course. But I do approve....
  11. Just recently picked up a new trailer that has a BT stereo (JENSEN JWM1A). The BT works great through the interior speakers, but is very low, regardless of volume setting on the external speakers. This is only the case in BT mode, normal AM/FM stereo works fine both interior and exterior. Any ideas of what to check? I am streaming music through iPhone6 with Amazon Prime Music.
  12. I had another thread going here regarding the choice between the genesis trailer and the Eclipse Stellar. Long story short is that I live about 30mins from a local Genesis dealer, and had a terrible experience. The local dealer can't do math and was stuck over a 300 dollar math error on their part and lost the deal. In addition, the Sales Mgr was a complete idiot with no customer skills. I decided to reach out to Jeff based on the reviews here. Cactus RV is 6hrs away from me, but the customer service I received was amazing. Jeff was extremely helpful in helping me choose the trailer and floor plan that would work best for me. On top of the customer service, their pricing was far better than the local dealers even with delivery. That's correct, Jeff and team even delivered my unit to me from AZ! I really liked the genesis line of trailers, but I decided on the Eclipse Stellar because of the floor plan with walk around bed in a 25' model. The Genesis 23ss pocket bed was a deal killer for me, and their 25' floor plan didn't work because of the configuration to the first cabinet. I'll be taking her out on a maiden voyage this weekend, but so far I am impressed with the fit and finish, and most importantly very happy that I chose to work with Jeff and Cactus RV. I highly recommend them to anyone in the market for a trailer or RV.
  13. I think you're right! Thanks again for the feedback everyone, it definitely helped in the decision making.
  14. I'll definitely do a thread once received, but here are a few from the site. I can't say enough good things about Jeff at Cactus so far, has been a very easy transaction.
