First ride and Crash

Well I have a noob question for all of you pros. I had my Revolt for about 10 minutes and flipped it end over end. Not sure what happened but I can give you the circumstances leading up to the flip. I was making a long turn in grass at around 45 mph and had the rear coming around and was turning into the slide as I have many times in different types of vehicles and the next thing I know I am looking at the ground 3í in the air. The outside front tire has grass between it and the rim in one spot so I am thinking that it grabbed hard and shot me into the air. Does anyone have and suggestions for me on what may have happened and how to stop it.
Also my riding will be mostly on my farm, about 400 acres with road cut around the fence line, so dirt track with a few jump and a lot of high speed corners is what I am looking for. What setup would you pros suggest for this type of riding? I have been riding a Rhino and Teryx for 2 years but my friend got new RZR S and I was one upping them with the Revolt, but If I canít drive it any better I will end up dead.

Re: First ride and Crash

Wow, sorry to hear about the crash. I had to chuckle a bit, because I stood my Revolt, on its front bumper, in the first hour. I remember hanging by the seatbelts, for what felt like forever. Not a good feeling.
If I had to guess, I would think you dropped a tire in a hole. Changing to a bigger front tire, helps prevent that. Keep the air pressure to the maximum. The Revolt has so much wheel travel, that the body rolls, a lot more than your use to. Try the same turn slower and learn where your tipping point is.
Good luck, have fun!

Re: First ride and Crash

There are swaybar kits available for these too. If you look in my profile I have pics of them. They help with stability while cornering by stopping the body roll.

I know the feeling of rolling a new vehicle. I rolled my RZR the first week I had it.

Re: First ride and Crash

Thanks guys. What length torsion bar did you use and did you do the installation yourself. I have a friend that circle tracks minisprints and that looks like his set up on his car.

It was built by 777 Racecars who builds full size sprints and speedway sprints. He is in Apple Valley Ca. It is simple to instal. There is an open bar that goes through the chassis, The bar goes through there with some bronze bushings to take up the gap, then weld the mounts on the trailing arm and bolt it all in.

First 10 min?

Sounds more like over confidence to me, dont feel bad I have seen dozens of guys biff it in the first 10 minutes over the years on just about every toy made, heck the 3 wheelers were the best entertainment ever made :-)

I would slow down and build up your speeds slowly, after 5-6 tanks of gas start slowly building up your speed and get slightly more aggressive so you can tell how its going to react to different situations.

I can get you the 777 sway bar kit. I am a dealer for the Kit that 777 Race cars has designed for the Revolt. They sell for $350.00. I'll tell you, it is a work of art. You do have to weld a couple hoops the trailing arms to attach the sway bar links.

Re: First ride and Crash

We need 777 to make a kit for the Riot. Mike, I think that Ron would get one in a heart beat. EVERY one should have one!!

I took a Riot by 777's shop on my way to San Diego to deliver it to a customer. I think his mind was turning about it. He sure was scoping out the Riot. I will have to contact him and see if he wants to take on the task. Good idea Mark!
