08 Spanks 09

i had to post this up for my father in law.

he had his teryx in for its first service and the shop had just gotten in an 09 recently. so he goes back today to pick it up and they ask if he would mind racing the 09...

they go over into the field and line em up..... he walked it the entire way, same thing on the way back.

the guy at the shop was amazed that a stock 08 was able to do that. The shop was amazed that he hadnt touched anything but a little playing with the stock exhuast. and to beat it all, he was running the stock spark arrestor out of mine and the shop had removed the one from theirs.

I said he must of just got one that was "right" from the factory.

I will run my stock 09 against any stock 08. Have done it a few times. Was not much of a race.

Isn't this the same T-rex that started the "lackluster perfomance thread"??? Sounds a little like fantasy land... Find it very hard to believe that your in laws only have a modified muffler....don't see how it could take the jump on an 09' without the low limiter being removed..by CDI.?

I'll put my '09 sport against an '08, anytime.

I guess it is possible for a stock '08 to beat a stock '09. Maybe it was due to the lack of driver skillls, in the '09.

Timing off the bottom of the 09's should be better than the 08s from the factory (same as the Brute Forces - Timing is retarded more to 6mph on the carb version). Than being said for $300 a Dyna or a VDI can change to even a more advanced curve with no factory hold back (not available for now on the fi). Then as long as the carb version is jetted right and running premium for the more advanced timing it should be faster than an 09. Never ran the 08 vs 09s Teryx (wish I could afford 2 Utes) but I have seen fi vs carb on the Brutes and this is the outcome.

you would think the 09 stock would be faster since it dont have the limiter on the bottom than the stock 08.what i want to know is how much more expensive the 09 will be to mod to keep up with a modded 08?

and once we rework my fuel air ratios, when mine goes in for service, he will get that 09 spanked again. maybe he will do something to it first so its not so bad.
