That's pretty good Darryl. I should have said who's is tore apart worse with the most dust on it.

Thanks guys, I really appreciate the votes.

Darryl your machine is amazing. I can't wait to see it tearing up the dirt.

I've said this before, I really love my AC. With the LT it truly kills the whoops. I've had Tyrex and Rhino guys in it, and they can't believe how nice it rides. It smashes good sized whoops while doing 60-65 with ease.

That being said I think AC has some work to do. Personally belt and oil dipstick access is a problem. Hopefully on the 2012's this will be resolved.

Thanks again!

Thanks for the compliment. I think yours earned the honor though. Mine is just a crusty ol dirt dog...built for function rather than looks, just got lucky in the looks dept.

Hehe, I have that fixed on my machine. We can do a belt change in 12-15 minutes from a standing stop to ready to roll. Take out the Dzus fasteners on the passenger door panel, pull the 2 retention pins on the seat and out comes the seat, lift up the aluminum shroud panel, take the speed driver and hit all the cover screws, snip the old belt off, run a screw in on the clutch to open it, use the pulley wrench and use it to rotate the new belt on, then put everything back in place and fly...

Checking the oil entails pulling the drivers seat, but then I have direct access to the dipstick. Still waiting on someone to fab up a tube extension and longer dipstick...

Custom built +5 setup, originally built by Bionic Customs out of Phoenix, but I ended up having to rebuild almost all of it, new mounts upper and lower, bracing and re-aligning the rear toe-in.
It uses 30 inch long King 2.0 Reservior Shocks with dual rate coils. The shocks have 10 inches of stroke with internal top out bumpers and external bottoming bumpers. King's engineers worked magic on these things.
Total travel with axles, is 17 inches front and rear. If I run the car without front axles, I get more than that. The rear arms are J-armed to lengthen the wheelbase almost 7 inches, so the car runs 72 inches wide with 82 inches wheelbase. The car rides at 13.75-14 inches ground clearance with 55%compression/45% droop.
Changing the wheelbase brings the car to a 49F/51R weight bias. Total weight of the car is 1480 empty.

Are you going to sell your XTZ when you buy the wildcat?

If I can get a fair price yes. Otherwise I'll keep it as a spare
