    2nd Fatality Thanksgiving Week

    We saw both of the rzr’s Being towed out. Both cages collapsed, the single seat was worse. Neither accident looked that forceful. I don’t have info on helmets or belts. Just keep getting the word out. You have to put a proper cage, and belts, before you go riding.

    Anyone ever go out in April?

    We have been there the last 5 Aprils. Total of about 35 days. I would say about 10 where shade and/or A/C felt good. Most were perfect. We had about 5 days of terrible wind, in the afternoons. Mostly it is good. The sand is great, and there is never many people there. We will be there again this year. Say hello...
  11. Good job Vegas style. NIce to meet you in person, at the North Pole the other day. See you again someday.

    The RZR800s is now TURBO

    If you can I'd like to see a complete write up on the process, time it took, what all's involved, etc., as well as what other things need to be done in conjunction with the turbo set up and costs of course (if your willing to share). Thanks The Turbo kit came with everything needed. The install took one day, working slow and methodical, and never done it before. I switched to the overdrive clutch, which combined with the turbo is a massive change. Other than that, the motor is stock. I am running about 9 lbs of boost. It you did some motor work, low compression pistons, you could run up closer to 13 lbs. There are a lot of parts, but the directions are very good, pics etc. and it went together pretty well. I got a good deal, from GTP. The sticker price for the turbo is about 5K. This includes the electronics to change over to the turbo. The clutch is around 1500. I havent driven a 900, or 1000, so can't compare them, but the 800 is lighter, narrower etc. The rzr, and 4 quads, exactly fits in our trailer, so we were not going to get something else. Any other questions, just ask.

    The RZR800s is now TURBO

    The acceleration and top end are incredible. I also added the overdrive clutch, also from GTP offroad. The combination is awesome. I had the car going just under 70 mph with more to go and ran out of smooth sand. I would say it is roughly twice as quick and about 50 percent more top end. Highly recommend it.
