Can you expand on that? Would they run additional lines just for the heater function? I thought all the cooling took place in the rear?
Yes, cooling is in the rear on the open cab cars. Adding a heater requires ducting, additional lines, a blower etc.

Impressive! Looks like a part for a TT, not a production UTV. Looking forward to seeing this UTV in person.
From what he said that will not be the one going on the production UTV. The production UTV will be cast then machined I believe. I do agree the one pictured above looks great!

Mold: $500,000

CNC Part: $20,000

Ballpark numbers but my guess is QTY: 50-500 is when it crosses over.

I know that’s the billet piece. The production case will be pressure case and machine just like a Mendi, Weddle or Fortin box. But just seeing what it’s going to look like compared to anything in the UTV market is impressive.

Anyone interested in the full race version for 85K plus? Does not seem to bad considering his Dakar (potts) was in the classifieds for around that price.

Master 405/39 El Diablo, order with only racing essentials at this point, planning on using this unit to knock of my bucket list of off-road races. The Mint, Vegas to Reno, NORRA and we will have to see about some Baja SCORE events. *Will start with some VORRA races to shake it down and knock the dust off... or on as the case may be. Don't really plan on getting to far away from stock and just making sure to have all the safety equipment. Will be focused on finishing and having fun!

"225hp on pump fuel at 15psi.
305hp on VPC16 at 24psi
No official numbers on E85 yet"
Any idea what correction factor was used on that run ? I asked when Todd posted the video and got Crickets and fan boys blowing up my dm's telling me I was troll for asking a simple question.

No idea on the correction factor.
I hope they clarify the engine dyno runs tonight on the Livestream.
