new turbo rzr
« on: March 06, 2018, 02:12:45 PM »
so i saw this video posted on FB. watched it and they did a very nice job with the pics and video to make it look very fast and aggressive.  the key points i was listening for were track width, wheel travel, curb weight, wheel base and tq/hp. i know they won't advertise tq as it's embarrassing and the majority of the public doesn't know what that term is.  so i hear 16" gc....72" stance but then refers to it as 72" wheel base by comparing to a baja truck?? so not sure there.....168 hp i think but the most impressive part is 25" usable wheel travel. i assume rear 25" travel. i asked the question below the video on FB....of how can they claim 25" wheel travel with only 16" gc??   no actual answers yet lol carefully worded that too in the video. looks like a fun utility vehichle and i bet 1700 lbs plus on curb weight but never says.

Torque doesn't really matter as long as you are at peak HP rpm. Peak HP is where the most power is made.With a CVT ,you are almost always at peak HP.

It looks pretty agressive, but that is a lot of weight for that HP.  I rode in a Can Am Maverick ay Yuma.  Very bad visibility with the dash and hood, and you sit way back and low.  We couldn’t see which way the trail went when coming over a hill.  And then gas fumes, whew.

i'm curious about tq because there 1000 cc 3 cyl's........wanting a comparison to a 4 cyl 1000 cc as the 3 cyl will be a larger bore. i know the cvt is a huge saving grace for those heavy mid hp units as it allow all gears between low to high and your right normally pinned to keep them going. they are hitting some pretty fast top speeds now as well. the body roll is just something i cannot get past! that just shouldn't be that extreme but may with this new active x electronic suspension they can finally get that part right!  ;D it does look like fun but i'll keep my rail  ;D :D ;) ;)

These pop up in my news feed. 

This one is interesting.  The suspension with no change in track width.  http://www.utvguide.net/textron-wildcat-xx-review/

Quote
The Wildcat XX’s Y-link rear trailing arms do not use radius rods, and the track width is fixed throughout the travel. By using a dual spherical joint mount at the front of the trailing arm and a plunging axle, Textron has succeeded in eliminating the busy, wandering feeling as the rear suspension cycles through its travel.


Then this.  https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-03-06/polaris-thinks-the-people-want-a-28-000-dune-buggy

Look at the money Polaris is making.

personally i think they are over priced but with that being said they are going to charge whatever the market will support and i doubt sales dropped to much at $28k with the word turbo added to the sign  rofl rofl

interesting article yummi.....still reading it and very intrigued! not enough to trade in my rail for a utility vehicle but very impressed so far. with all the race experts involved why the hell does it weigh 1800 lbs??????? .........The Wildcat XX is heavy- 1,800+ lbs full of liquids and ready to ride. However, it doesn’t feel heavy. The engine is peppy, there is minimal body roll, and the car is incredibly agile. The 95-inch wheelbase is long enough to soak up big hits without causing the car to buck, but still short enough to make the car maneuverable on tight trails............ and ...........Wildcat’s power output to 125 horsepower in naturally aspirated trim. Later on, Textron will offer a factory turbocharged version of this same engine, rumored to produce well over 200 horsepower.............i can't believe they have never taken that into consideration. elbow room is important so i hope there's more than the rzr too! not positive but says overall width 64", does that mean track width? idk but i would pre fer 80" track width for stability.


95" wheel base is def a big plus but wonder what track width is? its a trailing arm more similar to a dual pivot style 3x3 or 5x5 which is def a plus compared to some of the others imo. still impressed so far!
