The placement of the fuel cell low and under the seats lends to a much better handling car versus sticking the fuel tank above the motor and the spare tire behind it.
Here a cage and bodywork are under construction. We like the placement of the
spare tire as far forward as possible. The rear section of the cage can be made
removable in case it gets rear-ended hard or you need to get to the motor.
back together, they have a much
tougher and racier look over stock.
Furthermore, you are surrounded by
tubing and feel much safer.
When you climb in the cockpit,
nothing reminds you of being in a
Polaris RZR. You actually feel more
like you are sitting in a road-racing
car or lowered Trophy Truck. The
switches and gauges are mounted
clean, as is the GPS and steering
wheel. About the only thing left stock
that you can feel is the gas pedal.
We took the LSR RZR for a quick spin
around a secret test loop in Arizona.
It was filled with twisted and hardpacked roads, sand washes, a few
whoops, big ditches and a lot of fun.
The car is still quick for having long
travel. You don’t feel slow or too
weighted down. Even if the car was a
bit slower than stock, you could carry
way more speed over the bumps and
through the G-outs. Compared to the
stocker, there was very little body roll
in the corners. The RZR carved flat
at speed and cornered sharp, even
when on the brakes. All the chatter
you feel with the stock suspension is
completely gone. The shocks feel like
they glue the car to the ground and
make it super comfortable to drive.
The suspension even works better
than that of the longer-wheelbase
At full speed we felt completely safe
in the cockpit and not one bit vulnerable. Dan Fisher has yet to win a big
race in this machine, but we feel he
has the tools to make it to the winners’
circle soon. And when you count the
