So what do you do when you are buggy free
« on: August 16, 2016, 09:02:00 AM »
So what do you do when you are buggy free and have nothing to suck up wads of cash? 

Apparently you remodel.  Just figured I would share...

Thinking naw. 

If I were to get a new toy, would be SxS.  Hard to ignore the improvements. 

The Yamaha and the new CanAm really look great.  I suspect mini buggies are a thing of the past?  Auto powered will still be around, but hard to beat some of the SxS's for what they now offer.

I'd say you are correct except for those desiring BIG HP .

It is all about power to weight and the thrill of the "quickness" for me. When I pack that 1050cc turbo nytro in my car you will need about 700-800hp to touch me Fabr! Then I will just out handle your big ass in the tight stuff. rofl rofl rofl

That is a curious question.  Wonder how the ratio numbers on the CanAm play out vs say a typical sand car with LS3? Can Am claims 154? 1585 dry.  Say 1885 wet with driver? Here is their marketing hoo ha.

This is the world's first factory 72-in wide side-by-side vehicle. With 24-in of suspension travel and advanced FOX Racing components, it stretches the X3 X rs’ abilities far beyond expectations for staggering performance…anywhere.

24" travel?  Wow, many purpose built cars don't have that.  27k price?  Hard, very hard to beat is my guess.

24" of travel on the big one with 16" of ground clearance, might have an inch or 2 clearance at full bump.

A sxs would be fun for trails.  But if it is 154 hp to 1600 lbs, no comparison in the sand.  My buggy is 1600 lbs wet with going on 400 hp.

Acceleration performance is nothing more than adequate traction and more HP per pound than your opponent.

I do have to admit Yummi, the SxS are getting much better looking and more performance ( hp and suspension ).  They would really be cool in places like AZ where you can drive them on the streets.  I just don't trust the frames.  Are they getting stronger?
