Here's how I do mine, take a look at the photos in the following link.While your doing this, be sure to turn the wheels all the way to the right and then rotate the right hub to see if you can feel the CV binding and then turn it to the left and check that hub. The way the differential and CVs are set up they will only bind on the side you are turning to.

ok so excuse me for sounding dumb on this but I have read on here before about toe adjustment and how you can make the trooper turn better. I understand how and alignment works being an auto tech. So basically you wanna turn the wheel right or left and adjust at the steering box first to get the max left and right with out binding correct?? Then center your steering wheel and adjust with the toe bar on the suspension so when your steering wheel is striaght your wheels are not toed out????

Not absolutely sure of what you said, but the turn to the right and rotate the hub is a CHECK to see if it is binding, if it is binding badly, you can't turn the hub and if you were driving, it would be felt in the steering wheel and probably damage the CV, If it's binding at all, you'll feel it as you turn the hub, --THIS A TEST-- But if it does need adjusting & mine did, that's how I did mine, another point not mentioned, IMO, you need to see that the flat, long, thick nut is tight against the yoke end and IMO, square with the shaft so that is has maximum interface contact with housing. it is the end of travel STOP. I went so far as to file mine to get an extra 1/10 of a turn. It also is what keeps the boot out there close to the yoke.

      Hello all,
      Was wondering if anyone has a recommendation for a good two way communication headset. It's too loud in my Razr to easily have a conversation with the wife, and want to go the headset route to help with that and reduce cockpit noise.

      The owners manual isn't helping as it doesn't look accurate. The bottom looks like an entire panel. Thanks in advance.

      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.
