Glamis trip


Recommended Posts

  • 7 years later...

Hey ive been to Glamis a few times and its worth the trip! Oldsmobile hill is insane to rip up you wont be disappointed!  I went on a yamaha yz450 r with paddle tires and a sand rail and it was one of the best trips of my life it reminded me something like being in a mad max movie.  At night as far as the eye can see crawls glowing desert night worms slithering around the dunes as riders one in front of the other crawl through the dunes in single file. ENJOY!

      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.

      I thought the problem was electrical but I just found this in the oil filler tube. Does anyone recognize the part? I know I'll have to tear down the whole engine, and maybe I'll find the rest of it in there. Something beg enough to seize up the engine. That was the problem I was trying to diagnose.... 'Cause it's locked up. 
      Thanks in advance.

      Been looking at sport SxS for a while. Its against Can-am or Polaris. I'm not Biased.  I want a turbo model for sure. I'm gunna be racing on my small bit of land with a few jumps. Then once a month up into the mountain trails where they are shared with 4x4 enthusiasts, the odd hiker and horse rider. So not too fast up there.
      I'm looking at 2 used vehicles right now.  One is the Polaris RZR Turbo S (2020) with 36hrs ; Light Bar Front bar Rear bar Rock sliders Mirrors Door inserts Door Bags Front half screen. Spare drive belt. Centre storage bag. Rear storage box. Spare wheel .1 other spare rim.  About 1 year warranty to go Just had service
      Other is 2017 Can-am Maverick X3 XRS (172bhp) 42hrs.Fully serviced . red/ gold loaded with extras. Front intrusion bar -Front bumper -Winch -Fender flares -Lone star rock sliders -Lone star rear bumper -Can am storage box -Side mirrors x2 -Roof -Led light bar -Metal gear shifter gate
      At roughly the same price (can am is 5k more) its a tuff choice for me. Both brand new looking
      Any views ?

      I have a 2008 trooper 1100 T2 which ran great, but the starter would not engage for a lot of clicks. I changed out the starter, careful to note one wire on the solenoid and 4 wires on the main starter motor post. After I finished, the start sequence where the two gages sweep back and forth and the fuel pump and fan turn on for 3 second, stopped working. I can not find any bad or loose wires, I tried changing out the ECU and can not find anything apparently wrong. Does anybody know what sensor error stop the initiation sequence.?
