  • Springs, Sliders and Limit Strap Kits

    In 2017 Desert Works built us a custom Polaris RZR for us to use as a Media Recon vehicle. Once we loaded the RZR down with gear and people the springs were flat. I was forced the crank 3+" inches of preload in to get the ride height set correctly. This really affected the handling. At the Parker 250 I noticed the springs were toast. With KOH just a week a away it was time to resolve this.

    Since building our media recon RZR we have put about 500 miles on it. We set it up with the Lonestar Racing +3.5 suspension kit. We control it with Walker Evans Velocity shocks. The Walkers come with Eibach springs but the rate was too soft for our heavy RZR. With 2019 KOH just a week away we decided now was a great time to pull the RZR apart and address the spring issue.

    Parts used.
    New Sliders: AGM-WSA-2500 retail $114.09 each ($228.18 total)
    New Top Coils: EIB-0600.300.0450S retail $100.00 each ($200 total)
    New Bottom Coils: EIB-1000.300.0400S retail $100.00 each ($200 total)
    Limit Strap Kit: ODL-217401 retail $85.50 ($85.50 total)
    Total spend on parts: $713.98

    We started with the AGM Hybrid slider. Aluminum 2 piece body with a composite inner sleeve. This design can help with coil bind also. Below is a video is Bryan Lyttle from AGM going over the nuts and bolts of the design.


    This photo shows the setup before we started the project. Even with 3" of preload the crossover ring was basically sitting against the slider at ride height. The top spring was basically doing nothing.

    We started by removing the old springs and slider. It is really hard to get a spring compressor in this setup. So we got sketchy with tie downs. This is super dangerous. If you don't have the right tools please consult a professional with the correct tools. (DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME).

    First impression on the sliders was they appeared to be upside down on my shocks. I spoke with AGM and they explained the slider would need to be mounted upside down to allow room for the cross over ring. The AGM slider was about .250" thicker than the factory composite slider. Between this, 1" longer top spring and added spring weight it was hard to compress it for assembly.

    This photo shows the results of the new springs. No preload needed. The heavier springs now hold the weight on the RZR and gear. The new sliders look great and the fit was perfect. AGM offers a slider for all major shock bodies and sizes. The crossover now sits on the middle of the top spring and has close to 3.5" of travel before engaging at ride height. The limit strap kit was added to eliminate that annoying clunk the shock makes when dropping out. The strap shortens the droop out by .5" and protects the shock and axles.

  • 2019 Best In The Desert Parker 250

    This past weekend the 2019 BITD season kicked off in Parker AZ. The race was made up of four classes, UTV Rally, UTV Unlimited, UTV Production and UTV Turbo. There was a total of 128 UTV's there to kick off the 2019 BITD season.

    As we arrived in Parker you could smell the moisture in the air. If you know the smell of a wet desert, then you know exactly what I mean. Rain was in the forecast for Saturday, but the desert floor was already prime. We pulled in late Friday to a packed main pit. The season opener is always huge; new teams, new builds and proven vets all showing up hoping to make a points run.

    Saturday morning was cool and cloudy. There was a slight breeze that would help move any dust the damp ground would release. These conditions were perfect for a high-speed desert race. We kicked off the morning with a hot cup of Gearhead Coffee, a freshly brewed passion project from a group out of Texas. They love coffee and off road, so they grind beans and gears trying to make something everyone loves. It really hit the spot.

    The UTV's were scheduled to line up at noon. The 250 mile race was made up of three 80 mile loops. The math doesn't add up, but thats ok. There were some really nice new builds in staging.

    We took our Desertworks built Polaris RZR out on course to shoot photos. Parker is an open riding area most of the year so there are trails everywhere. We were able to move from spot to spot fast and made the day really fun. We used Motion X App to make sure we stayed off the race course. Its really nice to have some great GPS aps for smart devices.

    The race started under a party cloudy sky. The racers start two x two 30 seconds apart. We had set up at the base of a hill around RM3. This sandy turn was wet and that really eliminated the dust factor. Cars were coming in one on top of the other. T908 Ray Wilkens leads T991 Sierra Romo into the desert at RM3 on lap 1.

    From RM 3 we moved over to RM 78. This was a long straight into a high banked burm. The burm was not as wet as the sand so the dust did kick up a little.

    For lap two we moved back to a jump we saw around RM76. It was a roller but the drivers running the lead pace got some air. 

    Here are a couple favorites we took. We want to congratulate all the teams that made it on the podium.

    Pro Turbo:
    Dustin Jones
    Brandon Shueler
    Branden Sims

    Pro NA:

  • Are SXS's The Ultimate Prerunners?

    Custom built by Desertworks. 2017 RZR 4 Turbo, Cage, Roof rack, Rockford Fosgate system, LSR long travel, Walker Evans Velocity shocks, Method 401-r wheels with 33" Baja Pro tires, SPOD control system, Rigid Industries Lighting, Rugged radios communications system and Safecraft fire suppression system. .

    Polaris RZR, Can-Am, Yamaha and Textron are manufactures leading the sport SXS movement right now. The platform lends itself perfectly to this. 4x4, 18" wheel travel, 2 or 4 seat format, 150+ hp and less than 2000lb. They are powerful, nimble and easy to maintain.
