I can't imagine how that thing will be able to maintain traction on a single rear drive tire with the HP being cranked up. I have to imagine that it can barely maintain traction with it being as light as it is already. Adding a bunch of horsepower is going to make that thing completely ridiculous...in a good way of course.
These are odd vehicles. Registered, insured, and inspected as a motorcycle. In the state of Virginia, with the roll cage bolted to the chassis (as this one is fitted), you don't need to wear a helmet while driving the thing.
The single rear wheel...
Polaris fitted the thing with traction control. It has a TCS switch that shows two tire marks.
I told the client that Polaris missed an opportunity there, and that I'm sure there's a market for a proper switch.
The rear swingarm will be longer and be fitted with a wider, sticker tire that he said will absolutely stick. He said the stock rear tire will break loose with the stock 160hp (1,700lbs), but with the 400hp from the supercharger and the new rear setup it won't be traction that's the issue, but the rear drive belt. Said they're good to 300hp.
