Drove the Turbo today.

Well I finally felt that I had enough stuff fixed that the car would be safe and reliable so I took it to the mile markers today. I put about 30 hard miles on it testing high speed and low speed stuff. The car did very well except for the suspension. It needs valving badly. The front is very soft so it bottoms easy and I don't even think the guys that built my car in CA put any nitrogen or air in the shocks. The front fenders rub a little so I will have them clearanced a bit. The water temp never went above 200 and that was on nasty long climbs. It would recover to 187 - 190 within 30 seconds of the fan on. The power feels pretty good on the bottom end. I think my friend took some video of me pulling away from his Teryx not that that is saying much but should give an idea of how the MCX turbo runs against stock stuff. My car probably weighs around 1500 lbs or more. Scales any one? Here are a few photos.

The fenders are custom made by Chris at Flying Hammer Fabrication in Arizona. He used to work for Tatum Motorsports and his work is very impressive. He makes aluminum look like plastic. I am very impressed with the one piece engine cover he made for me. If any one would like his information send me a pm.

I will not recommend the Long Travel because I have had nothing but problems with it. I would look at UTV Crap or Prestige for your long travel.

The Aluminum guy Chris is very talented with his fab work and you will be very impressed when you see what he can do with aluminum. It is not cheap but well worth the money when you see the quality and craftmanship. You can reach Chris at Flying Hammer Fabrication @ 602-463-6836. He was recommended by sandchris and I highly recommend his work. Good luck.
