TT Racing in my Teryx!
We had a local TT race at AZ Speedway (or Speedworld Speedway, not sure what they're calling it these days) this past weekend. We race quads & dirt bikes there. There's a 1/5th mile & 1/4 mile oval and the TT track that uses the 1/4 mile oval and the infield. There's one small roller jump on the infield too. Flattrack tires are required when running the ovals but they allow knobby tires on the TT track. I asked the track owners if I could run some laps in my Teryx after the races and they said no problem. WHAT A BLAST! It was the first time I'd driven it, other than blasting around the Glendale streets. NOW I know why everybody & their brother has a SxS! I race the Pro ATV class on a very built KTM 525 quad. That night I was running 32 second (slower than usual) times on my quad and was clicking off 39 second laps in the Teryx! I was told the inside rear wheel was about a foot off the ground coming into the turns and would bicycle just about every corner just a little. I didn't even notice, except for one time it was WAY up on the bike. The next TT race is May 24th. I'm going to check with the track owners and see if they mind (if I can find others who want to try it) if we run some laps during intermission. I didn't post anything like this on any other SxS boards (mostly because I don't go to any others) because I don't want a bunch of crazy racer types out there thrashing and bumping into me and tearing up the track. So, if any of you local peeps want to try sliding around a TT track with your Teryx, let me know and I'll see if I can set it up for the next race.
Sorry no pic's, the GF couldn't make it. Next time FO SHO!
