Mike P Taylor #1. Stock yxz with exhaust. The turbo cars had their own class and I think there was only 1 ahead of me. I had a great time. No clutch problems.

Mike P Taylor Night race video was the best video footage but was short lived do not having the right lights. I bought some 4x4 LEDs at the track and I just couldn't see far enough ahead. I hit a rock with the right front and it was game over. We tried to plug it and it still leaked. I've had a great time this week end and I will get some videos up the first of the week.

THAT VIDEO IS AWESOME.

I like the sound and shifting gears.... pretty cool.

I hope someone races one of these yxz at baja 1000 coming up .. I think it would do REALLY well.

Yeah he drove the wheels off that thing, and his lights were terrible! I can't believe how he smoked everyone on the asphalt section

Does anyone know what the rzr was running (engine / mods) in front of him (yxz) ? That guy pulled away and there was no catching him.

image.jpg the white one that just walked away is for sure a xpt. The only real way to tell is the header, it's a single whereas the the xp1 is a double. Cool race, it sounds like an Indy car. Race like that comes down to who has the biggest balls.

That video is way too short!! I could watch that for hours!

The YXZ is perfect for that course, and that dude can definitely drive
I was watching another one of his vids on youtube... he only knows ONE speed for sure.

So from the notes I read above, there was a morning class and there was a 900cc class, a 1000cc class and a Turbo class. And the YXZ won overall in the daylight.

Then this Yxz driver had a flat that took him out of the night race while he was in 2nd overall , chasing a Turbo car that was leading.
He also said his car was piped, but I didn't see what kind.

His lights were barely sufficient 2- 4x4 led cubes, it said on fb that he bought them at the race and threw them on there hoping for the best.

No !!

My side cramped up watching that once he started dancing with the trees.

When it was over, I thought, "Thank God. Now I can get back to work."

I have watched this video several times and I don't see anyone running off and leaving the YXZ other than when they were stuck in traffic. The green/white one that took the lead for awhile was ran down on the first long straight away and passed by the YXZ. They seemed pretty neck and neck after that until the YXZ fell behind in some turns. I don't know, looked pretty competitive to me but that really long stretch at the beginning had the YXZ running down everyone.

It won't be long until we start seeing oversized valves, flowed heads, cams, high compressions pistons, etc. become available. The racing future for the YXZ is looking good.

This was with just an exhaust and controller. It won't be long until we start seeing oversized valves, flowed heads, cams, high compressions pistons, etc. become available. The racing future for the YXZ is looking good.
