the 700XX would be ok in a smaller lighter chassis, the key being very light. That looks to be a 160hp Yamaha R1 motor with a RMP gear box in the vid

iceman320,
That is one outstanding machine. The suspension is absolutely spot on.
Thanks for the video.

was thinking about building the frame for my sand rail out on 1" or 1-1/4" dom tubing or maybe some chromoly tubing if it's not too expensive. but the dom tubing should be plenty strong. was going to have mine be the same wheelbase as a rzr s or rzr xp. but what would I have to do to the clutch of the 700xx motor to get it to be able to work in the buggy? is there a clutch available for the xx that would allow me to do this?

I think the buggy in the video is using one of these gear boves through a stock type chain. Generally these use a hydrolic pedal system to operate the clutch

Sorry to send just that option, you could use the hydro set up to run the clutch from a peddle or just put a stock lever and cable set up somewhere in the cockpit. As for the gear box, they are pricey and probably not the best option sence the XX already has reverse. Another option would be to use the stock rear sprocket set up and put your money in a set of wider axles, possibly some of the UTV axles would match the CV splines and give you the width of a micro buggy.

BTW, damn it! Now you have me thinking about building one! I would imagine that all the left over donor 700 XX parts would sell for a good price. Probably enough to pay for alot ot the components for the build. A built 727 XX motor would be kick ass in a light machine! Just try to keep the weight close to the same as the stock machine

look up Weller Racing, they build R1 kits for Yamaha Rhinos and thier web site will give you ideas. Or even look up trophy carts, they would be a great platform for a XX motor. They already put TRX450 motors in them, here is a link....... http://www.google.com/search?q=troph...w=1366&bih=615


ok so I am rambling a bit but still you got me thinking

iceman320,
In the March issue of ATV Action Magazine on Pages: 50, 51, 52 and 53 is an article which resembles the RZR you saw on youtube. It is called a RZR X Apex. The Polaris RZR was modified for a Hadley Hopkins of Clovis, California. The machine has a Yamaha Apex 4 cylinder (20 valves) engine in it similar to the one in the Yamaha R1 but available on the snow mobile. MCX-USA doubled the horsepower in the engine. A turbocharger was added (MCX design) that gave this machine a very conservative 260 horsepower with an 11 pounds of boost. Of course many many modifications were done to the chassis, suspension and associated equipment. What a machine!!!
I tried to find a website so you could see this out-of-this-world rocket but was unable too.
The magazine is supposed to be on the shelf until the 19th of April. Hope you can find it.
Sid
