And the ruts keep getting bigger.
Don't forget...there are designated golf cart courses....and I think that is the wave of the future...SxS races only.
Next up will be 250 hp UTV's with 35's...tearing up courses and equipment.
There are already guys that are pushing over 300hp (check out some of the big $$$ stuff at the sand dunes). Dez racing is another story, trying to keep everything together through some of the harshest terrain on earth running those kind if HP numbers is a crazy task.
Figure a TT is around 5k lbs and 800hp, thats 6.25 lbs per HP.
Now think of a 2k lb UTV, pushing 300hp, thats 6.66 lbs per HP.
Shits gonna break and people will put themselves in harms way. Some keyboard warrior can get behind the wheel of a UTV that has near the same HP/weight ratio as a TT thinking he's gonna be the next Bryce Menzies its not gonna end well, god forbid he have a few cold ones before hand. After all, its only a golf kart.
What do you think happened? Rolled it...(kinda hard to do with a Max). He got scared after that, parked it and has not done anything to it since...still sitting in his garage- still wadded up a year later.
I see PLENTY of these morons out there.
Don't want any more.
I get really skeered on my bike- we usually only ride early before the idiots wake up from their hangovers.
I don't care if you have 1500hp if you know what you are doing.
If you don't...buy a stock Rhino...or even better...stay home.
Same idiots that blow by me at 80 wagging their overloaded toyhauler down the interstate.
