RJ Anderson’s XP1K action video series pushes the limits of what’s possible in a UTV, and
the latest release, XP1K4, continues the
tradition with wild, continuous action
through a mash-up of natural and man-made obstacles, peaking in an insane
backflip. Let’s look at some of the
incredible stunts from the film and the
incredible Polaris XP Turbo that made
the madness possible.
BUILT FROM THE BOTTOM
With a staggering 168 horsepower,
the 2017 RZR XP Turbo’s stock engine
has all the power Anderson needed for
the video’s high-flying, long-distance
launches and huge drifts, but the rest
of the machine is heavily modified.
The Tony Vanillo-designed, Carr One-built 2017 RZR XP Turbo EPS uses
Holz Racing Products A-arms, front
sway-bar bumper, trailing arms, engine
mounts and skid system. The skid
system for drift-car-style operation of
the rear brakes gives Anderson precise
control in the production’s slides and
stunts. Fully adjustable Walker Evans
2.5-inch Velocity shocks replace the
Turbo’s stock compression-adjustable
Fox 2. 5 front and Fox 3.0 rear shocks.
Walker Evans sway-bar links, small
shock absorbers that replace the rigid
links on the RZR XP’s rear sway bar,
provide a more compliant ride than rigid
links without reducing the sway bar’s
ability to limit body roll.
The Mob Armor iPad Mini mount lets Anderson watch his favorite XP1K in flight movies. The
MPI XP1K4 wheel is a one-off special. Racepak’s IQ3 data-logger provides info at a glance
and saves it for later. The drift-car-like skid system gives Anderson precise control in the
production’s slides and stunts.
Anderson has the best seat for the movie—a single, center-mounted, custom-made MPI/PRP
Alpha containment seat with a PRP five-point harness.
