Off Road Racing

Recommended Posts

I just read that Robby Gordon won the season opener in Laughlin. I have watched him race alot. Alot of people think he runs wide open all the time. This is not true, he is very steady on the throtle, you can tell he is coming from along distance away because there is not alot of changing in engine RPM. When you are taking your foot of the throtle and stabing it back on it really upseats your suspension, Just like braking as you you hit a bump or ditch, you compress your susp by hiting the brakes witch takes away from your susp abibility to absorb the bump. Robby is crazy and he deffentely has a attitude, but i sappose you have to, to be as a aggresive as he is with his driving style. In San Falipe about 10 years ago they clocked him at 154 mph on a dirt road, he is a very Talented driver. Just so i can brag they clocked me 148 in the same race. Anyway some of this applys with the troopers in that they do better when you are steady on the throtle, You will find your ride alot smother not hitting the brakes as you are about to hit a bump.

    • First Time UTV Buyer

      Hello everyone. I’m looking into getting a UTV to mainly use at the hunting lease. Need to be able to haul around gear and decoys and at least one dog kennel. Would also like to use occasionally around the neighborhood (Golf carts and UTVs are allowed in my area). I know I want a 4x4 and don’t necessarily need something that’s gonna go 40-50 mph.  I’m an engineer and enjoy maintaining all me vehicles/ toys so I can give something a once over and notice any glaring defect but I have a few UTV questions   Is there anything I should watch out for? Any specific questions I need to ask the seller? How many hour/ miles is too many? I want something used but not used up. Anyone feel their UTV has been underpowered- should I get at least a YYY cc engine? Theres a 2014 Kawasaki Mule 4x4 XC with a nice 5x10 trailer for sale that I’ve been eyeing, anyone have good/bad comments about this particular vehicle? Thanks!!

    • Gas leak from intake of carb after setting long time

      2007 Joyner 650 Sand Spider, has carburetor leak out of intake after sitting for a long time, I was going to take it off the intake manifold, but found that nuts are real hard to get to, started to think I need to remove it with the intake manifold, but not sure about the gaskets, I do not have any, so this may turn into a problem I don't want, but the gas is just pouring out as fast as the fuel pump can pump it, I was hoping it would stop after a while, as if maybe the float was stuck, and that gas flow would free it up, but no such luck today, maybe tomorrow I will try it again, so my question is has anyone deal with this issue, and is there an easier way to fix this? Should I buy a gasket kit before starting this, do I take the carb apart and clean it, if so will I need a kit to put it back together? Not sure what carb is on here, besides the stock one, I have no manual that tells me what it is, XIANGLI UU276M CSHI0E GO4 is all I can find on it, and the letters are real funky, like they were written by hand with an electric scribe. Thanks
