Well I got to see how the gator rated this weekend. 3 days with a buddy and his razor. I am pleased with the out come. The setting was all woods. lots of mud tight turns and ruts. The gator had no problem closing the gap and when leading I had no problem holding my position out front. I defiantly made up ground on the up hills. In the tight trails it seemed like i really had to drive it to keep up. I had the suspension set soft. springs about an inch from top and dampening at click 4. The bumpier the trail got the gators fox suspension really helped me out. The heavy sticky mud was no problem for me either and when we got to water the razor seemed to get its operator a lot more wet. All in all for an all around machine the gator seems to surprise everyone. And when we ran out of fire wood there was no question what machine to take because the razors "deck" isn't good for much. LOL my buddy wants a 900 razor now because he can't beat me flat out. Good weekend happy with the gator. It may not be for everyone but its the only one for me....

It was faster off the line not sure in top speed. I like the suspension but I went too soft lost a lot of ground clearance but it rode like a trophy truck. I need to find the compromise

No problem at all!!!!!!!!!! It will spin them like nothing. First time I rode it, I pulled out a full size jeep grand Cherokee 3 times.

Cool I like the way it looks with the 29s how much more ground clearance do you get out of them

I would have to measure, but not enough. Maybe 2-4"s.

I raced a 2012 RZR 800S with my RSX and it wasnt even close but then I raced a 2010 RZR 900 with a few mods and he got me by about 1 bike length off the start and thats all he could get on me til my bike cut out at 53 mph.
