Day Trip on the Rubicon Trail – June 2016

Rubicon Trail

Another mid-week getaway to our favorite rock crawling trail here in northern California.  Temperatures topped out at 60 degrees so it was a nice change from the normal hot temps in the valley.  We were lucky enough to have Reid from Walker Evans Racing make the trip up, and he brought along a new product called the “Walker Link”.

This new little shock from Walker Evans Racing replaces the factory fixed rear sway bar link onRZR XP 1000 andRZR XP Turbo. The Walker Links allow the rear suspension of the RZR to move more freely for a few inches before stiffening up when more body roll control is needed.  This way, you get more suspension articulation when rock crawling but still retain sway control for high speed desert and dunes riding.  This solution gives you the best of both worlds without having to disconnect for the rocks and reconnect for high speed driving.

I brought our trustyFOX Edition Polaris RZR XP 1000. We have had this car for over a year and love it for rock crawling.  It is a very capable in all terrain, but excels in the rocks. I drove it in, and my son drove it out.
