  3. Thanks for these updates as the work Nazi has our web access and videos on lock down

  4. I was really hoping for more of a trail version of the YXZ with a lower gear ratio and better low end torque.

    Is anything else coming? I need a Wolverine 4 so i don’t have to buy a ranger or teryx.

  6. Wonder if you would be able to convert a 2016 YXZ to this new type of transmission modification? Would be interesting to see…?

  7. You do a awesome job keeping us updated. Your site is always the first place I go for breaking news on new models . Any new info on the next rzr?

  8. The SS is awesome but the gearing still sucks… I drove one and rode with it in the trails. Its not an east coast woods machine at all.
