Whiplash Vulture Mine Race Video...

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Well, this race ended rather quickly for us with a flat tire around mile 4.5, along with one of our friends Justin breaking his tie rod and getting a flat tire, as well. I started 5th in 30 second intervals, and unfortunately 2 of the cars took the wrong turn, so I was in 3rd place and about to pass #1 and #2 when it blew. :( Here's the video:

Stay tuned, because I'm going to post some pics later...

Nice, too bad about how it ended. I use to race whiplash on 2 wheels in the 90's

Yeah, I love the group that comes out and races...sometimes it needs to be a little better organized, but outside of that, it's great.

Yeah to bad they don't run the Point to Point Race in Mexico anymore.

I would love to see some pics of your car.

I'm very slowly getting my Rhino ready for my wife to race. VERY SLOWLY, I don't have sponsors or anything. Everything is being store bought since I don't have anything to fab myself.

Here is what I got so far, nothing compared to yours.

By the way, I'm a simple kind of guy...you have the sickest RZR I have seen.

Your rhino looks great...Trust me when I say keep it as light as possible, yet safe. Cut out anything you don't need to save weight, because that's the number 1 killer to these things. I wish mine weighed about 100 lbs lighter. :)

The biggest key to most of these UTV races is keeping together, so stock machines tend to do very well, especially on the harder races.

What is the minimum requirements to run a UTV in Whiplash? Just like a beginner class or something?

As you can see I already have the cage, 4 point belts, and leg minders. What else would I need to do?

Wrist restraints, and you're goodd to go in the stock class. It's a blast, and you'd be totally fine...

Thank you for helping me out

Would it be possible for you to put up a link for the wrist restraints?

What do the arm restraints attach to?

As far as neck support, you mean just like a neck roll?

Your latch on the harnesses. I'd recommend the D3 Simpson 5 point seatbelts.

      We've corrected the Youtube video layout that was breaking posts. You should be able to post a link from YouTube, Dailymotion, Amazon, Metacafe or Vimeo into a post and the video should display.
      Please let us know if you run into any issues.

      Fired up for the first time after total rebuild. Now I have no idea whats going on. Compression is 120, new plug, new fuel and oil lines, new choke and fresh fuel. Carb cleaned and reeds are good (no gaps).
      Will not start without choke and stalls out when choke is off. Played with choke adjustment and doesn't change.
      It fires up first pull and only idles if I play with idle screw. As soon as I touch throttle, it goes bezerk on me and I have to shut it down as you can see in video .......

      You can here the recoil lever tinging in the video. I lost the spring. D"oh!!
      So far I have swapped ignition coil, spark plug, CDI with no change. I have removed flywheel to check keyway and it is where it should be.
      Checked resistance on stator ... I get 10ohms +/- 10% on pickup coil within specs as per manual and I get 273ohms on charge coil. Manual states 300ohms +/- 10%, so that is also within spec.
      I have also swapped out jet needle and played around with different settings. Eventually I put it back to the 3rd line.
      The engine already has new seals and bearing so I am completely baffled as to what I am missing here.
      Any takers?
      Any and all suggestions will be appreciated.
      Thanks
      I have also swapped carbs from a running YT175. Same results.
