|TMW Off-Road’s “Genesis”
TMWs Genesis XP1000 may not hark back to the origin of the RZR, but its roots are buried deeply in TMWs long-time love for high-performance machines. Swathed in the best technology available for UTVs today, this white and blue bruiser checks all the boxes.
This project started with a brand new 2015 Polaris RZR XP4 1000 fresh off the truck. Before it was even broken in, the XP was torn down to the frame for a complete build. TMW started the project off with a call to Lonestar Racing for their +7 MTS suspension kit, which is built out of certified 4130 chromoly tubing. The TIG-welded kit widens the vehicle by 3.5 per side and achieves 20 of wheel travel, all while making the RZR feel more stable in high-speed cornering and while side-hilling.
To handle the extra travel, TMW enlisted the help of FOX Shox. Because of the beatings they intended to give the car, it was specd with internal-bypass, steel body shocks. The steel bodies are a little heavier than aluminum, but offer superior strength and durability when running them hard. The Lonestar and Fox package has been well-proven on race podiums recently, so TMW was very confident with their choice.
All that travel is fun, but without an engine to push it to ridiculous speeds, whats the point? The engine was shipped off to race gurus Weller Racing, where it received the star treatment. Carillo forged rods, custom ported heads, spec camshafts, forged pistons, and high-strength head studs highlight the build sheet. To top it off, a massive K&T Performance turbo kit was added, utilizing a custom bed cover to give the engine a little more breathing room. Its all wrapped up with a custom Muzzys exhaust system, producing a gorgeous tone without being obnoxiously loud. Now, with well over 200 horsepower on tap, TMW turned to the details.
TMWs own Venom X4 cage graces the car, implementing some smooth lines to the silhouette of this big beast. TMW kept the build simple with no front bumper, but powder coated all of the aftermarket pieces to match the metallic blue and pearl white color scheme. Inside the car, a set of gorgeous Triple X suede Black Widow seats and Simpson harnesses keep occupants held in tight.
With all of the power and suspension TMW added, the stock headlights just wouldnt cut it. Rigid came on board in a big way, providing a 30 RDS light bar, an SR10 light bar in the custom grill, interior dome lights, D2 Dually corner lights, A series rock lights, and SRM reverse lights. Now, the car can provide its own daylight.
To put the power down, STM was enlisted for a set of their billet clutches. The fully-adjustable clutches transmit power to the wheels more effectively than the stock clutches, and also allow for a higher power threshold without part failure. OMF beadlock wheels wrapped in Sand Tires Unlimited Blaster paddles help the K&T/Weller Racing engine devour dune faces.
The guys at TMW are never one to turn down a good time, so they went to audio legends Rockford Fosgate for a stellar sound system. A glovebox mounted 10 subwoofer handles the bass, while 6.5 component speakers dish out mids and highs. Its all powered by twin T series slim-line amplifiers that are stashed under the bodywork.
Topping the whole project off is an absolutely gorgeous wrap done by Wolf Designs. They work closely with TMW on many projects, and always bring a fresh outlook to a build. The colors TMW and Wolf selected for the build look incredible in the sun, and the wrap job is so clean that it appears to be painted on. Axia Alloys hosted a ton of billet parts on the car, including mirrors, fire extinguisher mounts, and shock reservoir clamps.
TMWs Project Genesis was a blast out in the Glamis sand, and it ran flawlessly for the entire UTV Industry Ride.
