The Ulimate XL

This is my Revolt project car. I have made many mods including a true 25" travel front end with bypasses and the original rear also with bypasses and a new shock mounting sysyem. The cage is 6" wider and the car is 11" longer than stock. Most everything on the car has been upgraded. The only things I need to finish are the body, redo the rear end to a trailing arm set up and get the supercharged version of the motor. These motors and ECU set ups are hard to find info on. This thing now handles like a dream throught he turns and whoops. They are a pretty good car to start with but, 10,000 dollars later this thing really rocks. Thanks

Sweet set up, I like the relocation of the tank and the fuel cell. What exhaust system is that? Looks loud..........

The exaust is stock, I just changed the muffler. It sounds deeper than stock but, no louder. Thanks

Re: The Ulimate XL

Have you raced this Revolt yet? Where?
I am thinking of getting this and modifying it to meet Score's requirements too and racing it in Baja. I have raced my Rhino in the 2007 Baja 250 and took 2nd place. The Ranger came in 1st.

I want to get something that is fast from the start and modify it (Chromoly it) similar to what you have done.

Thanks,

Smile Re: The Ulimate XL

Hey guys,

I am in the process of re-doing the rear end. It is going to be a trailing arm set up. The rear end of my car was fabricated crooked and it was imposible to align. It is my opinion that racing one of these things stock is a mistake. I have rebuilt and changed almost every piece on the car. The front ends geometry was really a mess. Hence the reason the car the car won't steer and lifts one of the wheels off of the ground.

The car has many good parts and was a good starting point but, much work needs to be done to make this thing reliable for off road recreational use much less racing. It probably holds up well in the sand. I have not had it in the sand yet. I actually have only driven it twice between tear downs.

I did not want to misslead any one. This was a regular Revolt that I bought over a year ago and made it my version of a XL.

As far as modifying your cars, I would be glad to help you with any information that you may want. I live in Las Vegas and have an incredible fabricator that loves to live outside of the box when it comes to building cars.

And by the way, the only way that this thing will ever race is if I sell it or it goes in time trials. Not head to head. I have over 700 hours in building this thing and thousands of dollars. I don't need some Chucklehead crashing into me and sending me back to the shop. It's just not worth it.

Anyway, I have yet to meet another Redline owner and would like to get together sometime.

You can call me at 702-236-2555 if you want.

Rick Rood
