    Guessing real world would be close to that, but probably will be hearing from some RZR guys contradicting....Lance

    Well of course, we all know an 800CC RZR with a top speed of 63 should be able to outrun and 1000cc Commander with a top speed of 73.

    I'm sure this video was doctored.

    Thanks for the video, since a lot of people have not had a chance to compare these two vehicles, I think it is helpful to have all these side by side comparisons. (lol look at me, I made a funny...side x side, get it!?)

    Seriously though, thanks for the video XXX!

    If that is the Purple RZR S, then I was the driver of it. Please notice that I let off the throttle right before the line. A rookie error which I did a few times that night. The stopping distance allowed was (imo) not adequate. Would have had the Commander by about 1 ft if I'd not let up. I did the same thing in the womens finals. <sigh>

    Next time... <grin>

    edit to add---Nick with the 1000 Prowler did beat the Commander in the men's finals. That is a fair race...machine wise.

    You bring up a valid point, as these machines progress, ultimately it will come down to driver. Jo, any motor mods on your Rzr S?

    Hi, and---no, it's stock. I've had it about 5 weeks. I used to ride a 400 Big Bear but had to change as I had my right knee replaced. But anyway, back to topic... what it does come down to is the driver. I've not done any off the line drag racing since 1970(street). and, I had the understanding that this event was for fun (I did have a blast), not for a PR stunt for the Commander. So....imo, this vid is not a good example of the Commander's abilities. The 1000 Artic Cat Prowler did beat the Commander. The Prowler was stock as well.

    Ahhh got it...I can't speak for anyone else, however, in my opinion speed is only one aspect to a vehicle. Whether or not the Commander can beat a Rzr or a Prowler can beat a Commander to me is an non-issue, I am more concerned with being comfortable driving the machine, the fit and finish, reliability, etc. You can have the fastest machine in the world, however, if you don't feel comfortable driving it or can't make it back to camp, it is not all that fun

    To me top speed is not Important. Whats important for trail riding is getting to the top of a narly technical hill. That takes a lot of controllable torque to keep the wheels hooked up and not spinning.
