Hi Riedy,
   Like Mick said its hard to look graceful getting in and out of the Revolt. but once i'm in it I find it quite comfortable . It is suprisingly roomy inside and I can drive it for hours and still walk when I get out.  :nw

Ill make a drive over as well. Its a 5 hr drive to the border for me but Id love to meet a member from your group!

Only reason I asked about rolling is this... When I was at LS a guy was demoing them and I was offered a drive. Enemy took it out and he is a good driver, He is always on the pin. He rolled it in the first 2 min. and he alsa expierenced that theharness boltspopped out when he rolled it. Didnt seem safe to me and I wasot about to be responsible for it. The cost of the machine also did not turn me on. I think maybe the guy didnt maintain it well. I heard of others rolling it that same day so they packed up and left due to embarrasment.

Its great to see someone owning a couple that can handle them. Keep up the good work and keep posting the pics. Video would be cool too  8)

unfortunately I was back at camp when this happened and didn't get to see it in person or catch it on video, but I do know that when it rolled it was at a slow speed on fairly flat ground and yes when he went to unbuckle the seat belt were no longer bolted to the chassis! I am not knocking yours but after that and knowing who is involved as a dealer I would never even consider one!  doug one of the guys that brought all 8 buggies to demo that was the dealer there was JAMES the former owner of sonic sand cars! if he set up that buggy then I know why it was falling apart and rolled!  rofl

Hi guys, long time no post ! Hope your all well. Thought I better give an update.
Well Ive had this revolt for almost 2 years now & have done almost 900 miles without missing a beat. Yes it has rolled over on the side 1 time but not by me, no damage as it happened on soft green grass. I performed a double front flip going way too quick over a jump, it wasnt pretty but it did land on the wheels & drove away, thankfully didnt do much damage.
Anyways heres some photo's of the latest upgrade - TURBO  running 15psi boost.
 Not that the revolt is underpowered in stock form. Maybe I can get it to flip over backwards now ! Ha Ha
Havnt ridden the car with turbo yet, still needs to be dyno tuned with AEM f/i controller

Hair dryers are always a good addition. What engine mods were done to accommodate the 15 PSI?
