On board Buggy 58
Piranha with AA front running a 750cc air cooled Suzuki Motor

This Family Own a Polaris dealership and also bring Brand New RZR demo's to our events and run them around
This is the first time a RZR has been to a wheel to wheel event @ Northam
So the son (Driver of 58) wanted to give it a run for its money
One of the reasons being the Australian Rep for Polaris was driving it :roll:

With a Polaris XT RZR rollover at the end

Pretty good really.
An old aircooled, carburated 750 keeping up with a modern 900cc injected engine.
A bit more practicing on his cornering & he would have overtaken the Polaris.

That Polaris would be much better if it was lower.

The Polaris would be much better if it was lower, wider, lighter & stronger.

Plenty of time for him to practice, don’t want him getting too good too quick
He is only 15 yrs old and been driving with us now for 2 years
Once he gets another motor in that buggy there will be trouble for some of the older front runners
The improvements since he first started had to of be seen to be believed

It is covered in plastics, including the roof.
Plenty of gravel rash wherever it touched the ground, Will have to replace some plactics.
No damage to cage, considering the hit it took from seeing it on video I am surprised.

These exact machines wil be running in the Australian Rally series this year.
Cams wouldnt let them in without knowing they are safe.

The 4 wheel drive in those polaris's really seems to pull them out of the corners. How do they compete against some of the ther buggies with bigger motors? There is a few running in CAMS events over here - I don't want to look slow :lol: .
