I am so excited, i can't keep it to myself!
We are finally going to have a UTV Race Car in the Lucas Oil Off Road Series this weekend at Speedworld in AZ!
LSR and TMW Offroad teamed up at the last minute to finish a short course car in the last few days. Nothing like waiting until the last minute! We will be bolting on the shocks friday before practice!
I have been hard at work the last few days crunching the numbers on our new Teryx XTR Race Specific suspension system featuring front and rear towers for extra long shocks, lower leverage ratios, and ideal shock geometery for the ultimate in racing performance. The best part is, if you already own our XTR kit, this will be available as a bolt on upgrade in the coming weeks, or you can fab up your own mounts depending on your needs. It features 15.5" of true wheel travel front and rear, using a 10" stroke shock on the back, and a 8.5" stroke shock up front.
It will also feature brand new Fox RC2 B/O shocks that have a special bottom out circuit built into the top of the shock, for seemingly endless bottom out resistance!
Here are some photos I snagged as the car left our shop for some other last minute fab work.
Be sure to make it out to the LOORS race this weekend to see it in action, along with all of the other UTV's, PRO 2/4, PROLITE trucks, Superlites and Superbuggies.
I will be posting up some pictures of the car when it's finished, as well as some action shots and videos from the weekend.
You can see the original shock mount locations (stock shocks shown just to roll the car) compared to the new mounts that are placed up a lot higher!
Note, the upper shock mounts are above the fuel cell!
This new technology from Fox and LSR will offer the ultimate in performance providing an ultra smooth ride, and be able to withstand the most severe landings and g-outs just begging for more punishment!
Stay tuned for more pictures and video!
See you at the track!
