840 vs rzr....

i got to race a new rzr yesterday and he was baffled about the results....we raced about 500 ft and i busted his floater!!about 3 buggy lengths...i then spotted him 2 and still beat him by 2...i love the new power of the 840....i wonder how the 1000 prowler would do against a rzr?

Was it a RZR-S or just a stock RZR? I use to run against a RZR that was piped ,clutched and had a fuel managment system on it and before I put my 840 in he would beat me by about a bike length.Since then he sold his and bought a nice 08 Teryx that is pretty strong. I havent been able to line up against a RZR or RZR S since my build and probably wont for another 3 weeks or so.. Got to get the boat out and hit the lake with the fam

I am pretty sure a RZRS will beat a base one by several bike lengths. My friends RZR raced an S and got beat by a few bike lengths.. I dont see a RZRS beating an 840 though. Cant wait to find out

cam, header pipe, and ECU mapping are the differences in the 2010 RZR and RZRS motors.

And yes, if it was orange then it was a S... Glad to hear about that.. I want to run an S that has been modded up.. I do know the RZR owners get pretty upset when a Teryx goes by them Oh if it is a turbo RZR I will just defer and let Merlin make him cry
