As the Side by Side industry grows, it grows attention. Attention is coming from new sponsors, manufactures, and drivers.
Short course racing has brought allot of attention to the Side By Side Market, and the close racing amongst manufactures and drivers continues to bring new and talented people into the sport. Larry Roeseler not only brings talent and positive attention to our sport but a personality that is approachable and fan base that stretches many generations. Larry is a recognized motorcycle racer with 10 Overall wins in the Baja 1000, 9 Overall’s at the Baja 500, 10 I.S.D.E. Gold Medals and inducted into AMA’s motorcycle Hall of Fame. Not stopping in his winning ways, Larry took to 4 wheels in 1995 and has then added 2 more Baja 1000 Overall’s and also 2 more Baja 500’s, not to mention several Championships and class wins along the way.
Larry has been a Team Green Rider for 18 years, and continues to be a spokesman for the company. His ability to not only improve a vehicle but to continue its development is what makes this new racing team so exciting. We have spent the last 6 months designing this car for Larry, and have thought of everything we could do to make it the most advanced race car on the track.
“I am a very lucky man, being involved in so many different projects over the years and now this with Dragon Fire Racing, I’m very excited. I can’t wait for everyone to see this race car and team at the CORR races. It’ll turn some heads and trust me we’ll win some races”.
The Teryx Larry will be driving will set a standard for the Side x Side industry and will only help the products that we see available at the manufacture and accessory level continue to grow.
The Teryx has Carbon Fiber Wheels specifically designed to allow the suspension to have over 17 inches but meet the width requirement set forth in the CORR Rules.
To handle the 130 HP developed by the Teryx Motor, the car will have 14 inch ITP Tires on all 4 corners.
Type 1 rear axles and CV’s with inboard hubs and disk brakes were developed to handle the horse power and CV angle. To handle the steering a new front steer spindles, custom racks, quick steer, and steering dampener were developed.
All new a arms were designed with 24 inch Elka Elite shocks mounted to the lower arms, in both the front and rear, keeping the roll center of the car as low as possible. Elka suspension designed all new shocks with 8 inch remote reservoirs for increase cooling capacity, as well as bigger diameter shock bodies and shock shafts due to the increased travel.
Hanging racing billet brake Pedal, with a remote reservoir was developed to give the driver more space in the driving compartment.
Race Pack developed a digital Dash that displays RPM, SPEED, Water and Oil Temp, Oil Pressure, as well as shock temperature, allowing the driver to manage all the key functions of the vehicle.
All these products and more will make it to market and be available for the Weekend Racer or Warrior. It is products like this that will put DragonFire Racing and Kawasaki on the podium and on your car.
