They look great on paper. I find it interesting they don't post even an approx weight though.

Definitely a stout looking chassis.  I would say that it is near 2000#.  I would like to know what they are using for CV joints to get the travel with that 77" wide track width.

You can get any info on the Speed at GlamisDunes.com. They have a thread on it. Have ya'all seen the carnage that has happened at Glamis recently, since their dune season is starting?!! Holy crap. Looks and sounds like a circus.

i have not been on gd.com in a long time. post a link so we can look.

the speed utv looks interesting. is claimed to be very capable and better built. $32k lol pretty sure its 2k lbs also. all pre order at this point, none actually produced as of yet.  i am not a sxs fan but......i think i would buy one of the speed utv over the others IF they live up to there claims.
