The gauges on the Troopers aren't the greatest. If you search through the forum there have been a few people who've replaced the gauges with some marine grade ones .. exact fit for the holes in the dash. My T2 used to over heat all the time, so I moved the rad up on top of the rear deck and haven't had a problem since. There's photos in the gallery.

The oil pressure on the Trooper isn't the best. Seems that when it gets hot, pressure goes way down. A lot of us have had the same problem. The oil just gets too hot. You might add an oil cooler. Get a filter adapter and an oil cooler and plumb them in. Ask your auto parts store. On mine I made an aluminum oil pan that holds 9 quarts. Being aluminum with much more surface area to cool the oil and having the extra volumn has made a big differance. Oil pressure holds much better. Get more air into the engine space to help keep things cooler. I cut the fronts out of the little triangle body pieces just ahead and above the rear fenders to make them act like air scoops. Going to make them much bigger when I get a chance. Every bit helps. You could also replace the radiator fan with a high volumn fan.

I've been running 10-30 oil in mine, has anyone tried using 10-40 or some other heavier oil, I use to run 20-50 in my 100 hp Rotax 4 cylinder horizontally opposed air cooled air plane motor. Any advice for shop owners?

Thanks

I normally run 10-40 or 20-40 in everything. I run 20-50 in my race car. I will try to find the Mobil 1 bottle in a little bit and tell you for sure what is in my Trooper.

      Does anyone know what the recommended fuel pressure readings are for an 1100 Sand Viper?  I recently had the gas tank and fuel pump replaced and now the engine is very difficult to start and when first depressing the gas pedal the engine bogs down to the point of almost dying unless you quickly depress the pedal to almost full throttle.  The readings I'm looking for are.
      1.  Pressure reading when key is turned on and fuel pump is engaged but engine is not started.
      2. Pressure reading when engine is idling.
      3. Pressure reading at full throttle.
      Any information on this would be greatly appreciated.

      Good morning all,

      My name is Bryant and I'm the co-manager of an off road race series here in Texas that provides off road desert and endurance short course style racing for two classes of UTVs.

      We offer a stock and a Pro UTV class to allow an opportunity for most every UTV owner to try their hand at desert style racing.

      Our courses range from 10 to 100 miles long and races cover multiple laps.

      We look forward to having some of you come race with us!

      Here is a link to our website where rules can be found along with upcoming events.:

      TORRA
      Our goal is to get people out of the stands and onto the course by providing frequent and affordable racing options.

      Come on out and #makesomedust!
