Remember the days when a golf cart was considered a fun side by side? Those days are long gone. Yeah the golf cart still may be a good time for a few minutes but can you imagine how much more fun it would be if you added a 200hp turbo motor, full off road racing suspension, full roll-cage, four wheel drive, and a whole list of other upgrades? Well Rj Anderson doesn’t have to imagine that or convert a golf cart. At least we don’t think he does. He just gets to jump in and ride! Using his fully race spec RZR XP he jumps, drifts, and does pretty much anything else you could think of around what looks to be an old steel plant or something that had been in the process of being taken down in this 3rd installment of his RZR series they are calling XP1K.
There was a time when Riding UTV’s, or side by sides as they’re often called, is not something that would be a first choice for us here at Moto Networks. But that’s definitely not the case anymore. With that kind of horsepower and long-travel suspension, you could take them pretty much anywhere now and have a hell of a time doing it. The way he is able to soak up some of the jumps with that big old thing kinda blows the mind. After seeing some of the RZR class compete in the MINT 400 with $100,000 RZR’s similar to what RJ drives in the video, we have come to conclusion that although there is absolutely no comparison to the Trick Trucks or even the 6100 Truck & Class 1 Buggies, it would be a pretty damn good alternative if you could get into it. Who knows, if you are good enough maybe you will even be able to upgrade to one of the big boys.
RJ teamed up with UTVUnderground back in 2013 to release the first XP1K1. It was a similar video, only this one was filmed in the desert and he was using the RZR XP1000 that was sill fully built just didn’t have the turbo like on video number three.
What might be my favorite of the three videos, was the second installment that was released in 2014. I like the UTV from third video best, but the way they shot this one in the forest and using logs as jumps just looks so much fun. The time and effort it took to put this one together had to be pretty significant with all the ramps and walkways that needed to be built.
