Recommended Posts

Well guys finally took the trooper out this afternoon with the fox air shocks!! First the front has almost same ride hieght 13" under front diff rear under diff is like 11 3/4 not happy about that I have been talking to fox and offroad warehouse about this and I was told to drive it and give them some measurements to see what can be done might have to change the rear to sway away air shock but will know later!

Ok as far as the ride goes BIG difference!!!!! Man that thing flexes now my buddy said the rear end look Brocken. Ause the wheels moved up down so much lol! I was able to drive faster on the trails that I usually can't because of the softer ride, roots and rocks that usually bumped me all over we're much smoother whoops were cool to watch the front end move!!! All in all it was pretty good I think the rear needs work I'm pretty happy with the front fox 2.0 5.5 travel charged at 350 psi ! Rear seems a little soft and low for now but as things change I will keep u all update I'd say if I had 13-13.5 inches under the rear diff with how it drove today I'd b pretty happy but we will see

no coil at all my rear fox shocks are little to soft no happy with the ride hieght but the rid is good so far 13-13.5" in the front and 11 3/4 -12" in the rear =( . I have the fronts set at 350 psi and 200cc oil rears are at 500 psi and 260 cc oil. The thing flexs great my buddy said "dude the buggy looks brocken why are your tires moving up and down so much I laughed". I keep ground conract almost every were but one or two spots were the wash out is a bit much rides more level can go faster cause its smoother. All in all pretty good just bummed out about rear ride hieght i do go over some rocks so 2" is a lot to me!!!! as far as pics and videos of it in action I will have some after this weekend Im doing a charity run for the troops in NH so I will get some for you guys. Im am going to exchange the rear air shocks to 2.5 10" travel sway away shock or radflo air shocks they take 1000 lbs per corner

  • so how do we upload videos and pics in a thread like this not in our profile

With tapatalk its straightforward but on browser you gotta click on one of icons under the box where you type your reply to form threads and it seem like we can't upload videos directly on the website so i just upload my videos to my YouTube account and then share the link here like my trooper doing donuts video for example.

Yeah tapatalk is $1 to purchase i believe, i agree lol some of my videos looked very awful until i got very good camera phone (Droid x and razr) since then i haven't complained about video quality when i shoot it in hdtv quality, but if i record it in text message (vga or qvga) then video is terrible and not worth watching lol

I also have few videos of myself going in mud hole in ditches in hdtv quality that i can't see the mud or water because grass overpower the mud in the video

Lol

lol so its not just me then hahaha

Ok guys I shouldnt say this but I will I just talked to a guy who has worked with joyner and the factory joyner shocks have been rediesigned and will be forsale hopefully around november front will be under 200 and rears will be between 250-300 price may change some. I gues the ride quality and flexibility is drastically different and better travel. I was told that stock shocks just didnt do it and were all about getting the trooper off the ground not about the ride. Just throwing it out there for you all if your thinking about shocks

For that much money, I would rather just go with Fox shocks and have complete control of tuning myself and a known top quality brand.

in my gallery under new color I posted a couple pics of the suspension flexing I will post a few more later just wanted you guys to get the idea. I do have a video but its lame and does it no justice. I am exchanging the rear shocks from fox to sway away air shocks 2.5 10" travel 1500lbs per corner

There actually just the zilla tires theres a slight difference between the mudzill and zilla. The stock tires are 27" we all kow that but they actually measure like a 26" the tires dont rub at all so far except on my front fenders from time to time But you can see in my pics I made extended larger front fenders and I will be trimming them down for more cleareance when at full flex. Ther dont hit firewall and I run the between 10-15 psi in rear and 8-12 in front depending on were I am going

I didn't know there was just zilla tires, how wide are the tires in front?

hey nocturnalsixer,

I have spoken with sway away about rear shocks they will proball need to be set at 400 psi but its easier to adjust down rather than Up I will be getting my own nitro kit so I can adjust my shocks when ever I want. I found the hose and regulator that will work. As far as the tires go there 11" wide in rear and 9" wide in front and grab everything there good in the snow to and loose rocks. lol I will have the new sway aways in about a week week and half

all in all guiys Im really likeing these air shocks and now that i understand it all makes sence so feel free to ask???? the only issue for me here in mass is finding a shop that can charge them to atleast 500 psi. Like i said befor im gonna go 375 to 400 charge on fronts you charge the shock unloaded on the rig or off the rig not compressed. The bew rears Im starting at 500 will probally be down to 450.

Yes rocmoc your right on the valving I'm going up on the pressure in the front to keep my ride hieght the back new sway away shocks will be valves the same as the fix and the oil will be 10cc more! The rude quality is good an comfortable but I need a better ride hieght in back that's why I am upgrading the rear shocks

      My  problem is that when the temperature dips under 50 degrees, my Coleman 550 acts like the battery is dead and no electrical activity at all. The battery is at full charge. It only has 15 hours on it and the same thing happened last winter. Above 50 degrees, starts every time.  Very frustrating needless to say.  Anyone else experience this problem.  I bought it at Tractor supply and they are not a service center and don't know who works on them in the area.

      This just started happening a few rides ago. 4x4 and full lock were working fine. Now it won't go into 4x4 or lock. Took the servo motor off and it turns and operates just fine when I press the 4x4 button and lock button so I know its not that. Been doing some research and people seem to be saying that the slider (picture with red arrow pointing to it) should be all the way to the right for 2 wheel drive, middle for 4x4 and all the way left for locked. I tried pushing it to the left and it won't move any farther than what you can see in the picture. Seems like it's hitting something. It'll move all the way to the right, but I can only move it about 1/4" to the left (where it is in the pic now). Been trying to find an exploded view of the front diff with no luck. The Yamaha parts diagrams don't even show this slider as a part (diagram I have attached).

      Couple of questions. Anyone have an exploded diagram of what the front diff parts should look like for a 2009 Rhino 700 FI
      Special Edition? Some people say there should be a "fork" that the slider moves but I can't see that on the parts diagram either. Is my pic with the blue line pointing to the fork? Anyone with any ideas? Would like to get my 4x4 working again so I can do some snow wheeling soon.

      The middle two tires on 6x6 are spinning. the drive shaft from middle to rear is spinning and the shaft from middle to front is spinning. I have the entire thing jacked up. When I first start it both middle tires will spin and the front two will spin for about 10 seconds. the rear tires do nothing. I can spin the rears wheels both forward or backwards at same time or one forward and one backward and vise versa. Is this normal. Do I have a rear differential broke or is something not engaging the shaft to the gears in the back. Would somebody please tell me how all the drive system works together so I can find something to fix of replace.

      Its maker has affectionately dubbed it Teslaris, for obvious reasons.
      The Polaris RZR RS1 UTV has a one-liter, two-cylinder engine that from the factory has around 100 horsepower, making the 1,383-pound (627-kilogram) UTV very quick. But there’s always room for more power in one of these vehicles, and instead of fettling with its engine, one dune vehicle aficionado decided to swap in the rear drive motor out of a Tesla Model 3 / Model Y.
      We don’t know how many of the battery modules the put in the vehicle, but it doesn’t appear to be much heavier than stock and it goes up sand dunes with remarkable ease. Depending on which version of Model 3 was the motor donor, the drive unit could have either 261 or 325 horsepower, as long as the battery pack can supply enough wattage and voltage.
      Judging by how easily it flies up the steep sand dune, almost lifting the front wheels off the ground under harder acceleration, it’s safe to say it looks like a real hoot. The steep grade you see it tackling in the video uploaded by the electric UTV’s creator, Ron Cobbley, is located in the St. Anthony, Idaho sand dunes.
      We found more videos on vehicle’s official Instagram account and aside from how interesting it is to see an electric powertrain in an application like this (and how it changes the vehicle), we also noticed that you really hear the tires on the sand more. Usually, this sound is drowned out by the engine.

      The sound’s tone and pitch probably change with speed, giving the driver audible information to help him or her gauge their speed. You don’t really get this in a road-going EV driven on tarmac, which is why it’s trickier to drive an EV quickly - specifically because you have no way of knowing how fast you’re going just by ear.
