I see a lot of Yamaha Raptor but with changed fenders, just to look crazy as the Cybertruck :P

 

 

What do you think?

Sick! All I could think about is how cool that would be as a hunting atv  to quietly ride to your tree stand.  
I always will love my compression fuel fired engines I have to wonder what it would be like to take this think out for a spin.

After a week in the bush with no access to electricity one might be wishing he still had his gasser.

 A lot of  "what ifs"  to  go with  electric trucks and quads, especially if you're 200 miles in the bush. " Quad  charges off the truck".... Great .. But how do you  charge the truck if you're out on an extended stay ? Can  both be reasonably  charged using a small to  medium 110 - 220v light plant of about  2 -3,000w ?

To me , that quad is an  ugly  no go. 2wd and chain driven at that doesn't  cut it in my  book. Nope on the design  on that "truck"  too.

I can see  an electric 4x4 truck, but I would also  like to  see one with a built in  gas powered genset to  be able to recharge the batteries when way out in the boonies. It wouldn't need to be  a fast  charge ,  just one  that could recharge it over a day with ability  to restore at least 100 miles of its capacity in that time .

I was disappointed to see the chain rather than shaft. Hope the fenders are "ding-proof". What if this thing goes through a deep puddle or gets submerged in water, is it fried? Battery compartment better be water tight. Would love to see a parts/component diagram of the ATV.

   It amazes me they didn't do a better job designing it.  A few years ago i went to look at and nearly bought an e-force electric atv, it looked a regular 4 wheeler, had a direct drive motor to axle, no chain, front and rear racks. I wish i could have bought it but the price was up there at the time.    Tesla has done many great things but this ATV needs a driveshaft, 4WD and hopefully better looks.  A lot of people where i live have lifted electric golf karts and they do great on the farm, but naturally you have to pack a generator for any long trail rides.

I have 2 mufflers on my atv and now that the engine is quiet, you'd be surprised how loud the geartrain and tires are.  The ticking valves, intake pulses through the carb and various pieces of plastic slapping together are really prominent now that the exhaust is silent.

I too can't wait for an electric atv, but I think it's going to be louder than we had hoped.

That reminds me when my battery died on my gasser which left me stranded on top of a mountain.  I had to walk 2 hours back to camp to get a new battery which I had brought to power radios n stuff.  Some irony there lol.

The 250ex cannot be started unless it's in neutral, so no way to pushstart it down a hill.  There is also no recoil or kicker.  When the battery dies, you're done.

 

But you're right.... I wouldn't take an electric quad out in the bush without at least 2 extra batteries and probably an extra controller.  Heck, I wouldn't take a gasser in the bush without extra batteries, gas, and tools.

 

One redeeming attribute of electric is the potential to charge it via portable solar panel.  It would be slow, but at least there would be hope of eventually making it out.  Running out of gas in a gasser leaves one with no recourse.

      Hi All,
      Want to show you one automotive show that I filmed in my town called Crazy Race. This was two day race in Qualifications round, Semifinals and Final. In this 4 parts I am showing best moments from all rounds and entertainment of the show.
      Crazy Race Part 2 contains a qualifying round where all riders race against each other, selected by lot and split by two. They are free to drive in any direction and to hit their opponent's car everywhere except at the driver's door. Anyone who intentionally hit the other car in the driver's door is disqualified. Winner of each race continue in the semifinal round. In this part I will present the best moments of the qualifying round! 
       
      Part 3 shows you the best moments from Day 2 - Semifinals and Final. Battles in the semifinals are among the winners of the first day races, but this time they are selected by lot and divided into 4 battles of 4-5 cars each. The rules in each battle are that they only have to drive in one direction and try to neutralize other opponents until there are only two players left. Then the battle between the two last drivers has the rule to drive in any direction until only one who has qualified for the final round is left. Again, anyone who intentionally hit the other car in the driver's door is disqualified.
      For the final round there were only two cars left, because the other two players who got the right to be there had problems with their car and could not participate.
       
      Part 4 containing entertainments between battles and winners rewarding.
      This event will have second round in 05-06 October 2019 and also will be filmed  For this new round I will filmed in many new angels and places. Will prepare a lot more videos and many new entertainments . This 4 videos was my first try so many things to wish for better filming in the future one.
      Hope you will like them and of course feel free to comment and to ask everything. Hope you will Subscribe to my channel and to be first to see my other content and of course new round of Crazy Race! Thanks!

      So I dug my warrior out of storage replaced the carburetor with one off Amazon & it was running great. Last week it didn't want to start it would crank & I could smell gas but nothing. I replaced the starter,stator,solenoid,spark plug & coil & resistor but still not starting. Checked the stator and its at 30 ohms tried using starter fluid but nothing. I am completely lost and could use some help thank you

      Tesla made an ATV to complement its Cybertruck they just showed off. Its called the Cyberquad and will only be available with the truck to start. Cool name "Cyberquad"... Has anyone seen this? Thoughts? All electric and plugs into the truck to charge.
