Glamis this Past Weekend (3/21/09)

I figure this is a great opportunity to post the first Glamis Dunes thread!

Got back yesterday night from my first trip to the dunes, EVER! Went and hit the Glamis dunes in my Race Revolt. I slapped on a set of paddles and headed out with sand on the brain.

I met up with Damon and company Friday evening. I immediately unloaded the buggy, threw on my helmet and stuff, and headed out. We headed straight for Oldsmobile hill, by way of Sand Highway. It was probably 2 miles of big whoops! But the Revolt handled it well. And with the demo Revolt XL next to me on Elka's, kicking my ass, I was ready to sign the check for a set for my Revolt (but that's another story)! We get to Oldsmobile Hill and I am psyched to hit it right away. I creep down, tip toe through the big whoops at the bottom, and hammer up the main face of the hill! Made it all the way like a breeze! No issues. I did this another 3 or 4 times going up any face I felt like! Was awesome. Now the fun part.

So I'm sitting, talking with Damon and others, when I see a line of Rhinos, RZRs, and such starting to line up to race to the top. Probably about 20 of them! Well..........I immediately start trying to get my harness on as fast as I can. Now, I am about 40 yards behind the pack who are just taking off. I fire the engine, slam it into drive, and mash the gas. Most of the cars are already heading up the hill while I am just getting to the start. No matter........I'm driving a Redline. I keep it floored, over the whoops, and proceed to catch the back of the pack QUICKLY. With that motor and those paddles, and the light weight, I am pulling hard all the way up the hill. I proceed to cut through the entire pack, passing nearly everyone. By the time we reach the top of the hill, I had taken everyone but perhaps 3 or 4 rigs! And had I gotten a start with the rest, I would have been WELL out in front. LOVE IT!!!!

We run and drive until 11:30pm, head back to camp, throw back a few cold ones and head for bed around 12:30am. Time to get some rest for Saturday.

Wake up Saturday morning, ready to go. Slap on the helmet, fire up the rig, and I'm back screaming across the whoops heading for Cadillac Hill again. This time, in the daylight! Again, I hit every line up the hill and make it to the top. I watch a lot of other well build Rhinos not make it up etc. And I keep looking around at the ones sitting around me wondering why they would spend all that money to sit at the bottom of the hill. So I tear off again. After a bit we head over to Competition Hill. Again, we are tearing across the whoops down sand highway and then along the road. I am just LOVING screaming by every other UTV in the whoops. I wonder what they were thinking???

We get to competition hill. I run up it right away, head up a huge wall, carve a turn WAY at the top of the ridgeback (just inside the lip of the steep side), and cruise back down. Across from comp hill is a great set of deep, soft bowls with steep ridgebacks. I'm now going pretty much anywhere I want, and I am launching it off peaks and such. I am cruising through some bowls that I am SURE no other UTV driver (not in a Redline) would even try. Loving it!

We head back to camp to meet Damon and company to grab lunch. We then head out for a ride across the larger dune area. This is where it gets interesting. Damon is leading in a Riot, another guy in an XL, and me in my Revolt. I am the only one with paddles. The Riot and XL are running stock tires! But they are doing well. But then Damon makes the mistake of stopping too early going over a ridgeback (because he couldn't see the other side as it was too steep. He tries to get moving again and buries the back end (took all of 2 seconds!). We get out to do some pushing and digging. Eventually we get it out with the help of other guys passing by, and we are off again. All rigs are running well through the huge dunes, playing, carving, climbing, etc. I am able to go higher on the walls and deeper into the bowls due to my paddles. Definately a MUST. We end up at Cadillac Hill again. Run down it and then back to camp.

During another longer trip out, we hit some wide open flat areas. I had a chance to pin my rig, full throttle!!!! Not sure how fast I was going (speedometer is reading slow), but I had it floored and was topping out at 8,000 rpm. I quickly catch the Riot and the XL, with surprises on their faces. Apparently they weren't wide open like me!

All-in-all it was a great trip. My Revolt handled great, ran anywhere I wanted to go, and blew away every other UTV there that day. I absolutely loved it and was, once again, proud to be a Redline owner. I look forward to going back again.

Unfortunately we got NO pictures and NO video. We were spending too much time driving and playing. Maybe next time.

It sounds like you had a great time!

I've been riding by RZR's and Rhino's, at little Sahara. They have a hard time going anywhere. Anything steep and they're done.

That's pretty much what I found out this past weekend as well. Even those of them with paddles still didn't seem to try to go too many places. I was EVERYWHERE! Zip here........zip there...........loving it!

Yah me too.
I have to laugh at people, some say the funniest things. One guy came up and walked around my Revolt. He looked at me, scoffed, and pointed to the rear radius arms, saying " What a piece of S**t, there's no misalignment spacers."

I smiled at him and said " That's because it's not misaligned". He just walked off.

What a Dork.

No, we didn't hit those!!! It was my first time at the Glamis Dunes and Damon was leading me around. He said we had pretty much hit all of the hard stuff. He did mention China Wall but stated it wasn't anything more than what we had already done. So we opted to scream along sand highway and blow away all of the Rhinos/Rangers/RZRs that were creeping along. We ALWAYS took every opportunity to do that!!!
