After making the right improvements on the race car, we showed up more prepared than ever. In my opinion, judging by our speed, we had Top 4-9th place pace, which is not bad considering it’s Best In The Desert, with over 30 cars in our class.
If you are a parent like me, you’ve been trying your best to get the kids outside and having fun, for everyone’s sanity. This pandemic is far from over, and thanks to Speed, my kids have a sweet new toy – the Speed RC cars 4×4 SST truck.This truck rips via a LiPo battery and 550w motor, and more importantly, it slides predictably and you can somewhat control it.
It’s been a long time since we’ve updated you guys on the race RZR… Lots has been happening behind the scenes. This downtime is tough, but we are using it to get more prepared once racing resumes. After 2 races, we learned we needed to make some changes, to be as competitive as possible.
One set of tires, 2 machines, multiple offroading environments, some of the best spots in the Southwest, here are the results. Tensor has been releasing tires that have potential customers excited, and the DS 33 might be the perfect size, weight, and performance for today’s SxS owners.
From stock SxS’s, Live Valve, to full race cars, Wayne Isrealson can do it all. I met Wayne back in 2016 when I got to test with him in Barstow, and when it came time to have our#ChupTurboTwinssetup, he was the first person I thought of. I remember being amazed at what he could feel my RZR was doing.
Our first race was a whirlwind weekend, and now that the dust has settled, we learned of the weak points that need to be addressed, hard testing that needs to be done, and figured out which races make the most sense to shoot for in 2020.
2019, what a year! As a business and content creator, it’s always important to look back at the year, and see where we can improve with our products and content. This video gives you a better insight into our thought process behind the content we create, and the lessons we learned this year, and how we can create better content, more content, and of course, more products with higher quality, at better prices.
You’ve seen the race RZR, you might have caught the build videos, which started as a bare frame chassis, and it’s been running for almost a year. It’s about time we finally raced it! Rage at the River ended up being a great first race- 2 days of racing, only 50 miles each day, so it was easy for pit crews, no gas stops needed, and a fun course in Laughlin, Nevada.
Here are some sights, sounds, and racing action from the first annual, SCORE International Baja 400. 189 entries started, and congrats to all 133 that finished. Here is our highlight reel from contingency, the starting line, and race action, including a horse on the course!
It’s time to race this thing already! From the chassis builder taking forever, to this becoming a side project due to the sales growth of our product line, it’s taken way too long to get to the fun part: tuning the RZR and getting ready for our first race in October.
Finally, an update on this project. From where we left off on part 3, a lot has happened, both good and bad. When part 3 ended, the RZR was running, but the air intake wasn’t set up and the power was down.
