Had the opportunity this past weekend to put the RockCrawler RZR thru it’s higher speed paces. A friend has 500 acres with a private lake in northern Wisconsin, and parts of the property includes trails for their ATV’s. We made a few hot lap runs around the 1.7 mile lake loop.
The first video with shot with my buddy Goebs leading on his Honda 4-stroke…chasing the ATV added a bit of perspective to the video, and he was nice enough to keep his speeds down and mostly stay in frame. Time on this lap was 3:25 and top speed was in the 45 mph range (forgot to reset the GPS…oops)
Video two is the same loop done in reverse, and at night. Time was not taken on this one, but top speed per the GPS was 41mph. Notice that around 0:33 in the video, I turned on the 30″ Rigid Industries LED light…major improvement over the dim stockers!
