FIRST TEST DRIVE! - 4x4 Off-Road UTV Build Ep.25

Avaldati 30 apr 2021
Vaatamised 663 233

Fabricating air intake, routing brake lines and bleeding brakes, fabricating front propshaft and finally test driving this beast for the first time. :)

This is part of a series of a four wheel drive utility vehicle build to lessen the work load on my trusty 2002 Honda Foreman Rubicon TRX500FA. This partially answers the question "Why?" but for those who want to ask "why don't you just buy a side-by-side instead of building one?" I just want to say - I'm not made of money. Side-by-sides are ridiculously expensive, even the car I drive around daily is worth less (not worthless though!), hell, it is even worth less than my 2002 Honda ATV.

"How much HP will it have?" - the 1.4 litre FWD petrol engine I'm planning on using has 55 kw and this will not change, but the torque will be tripled via the BMW differentials I'm using to transfer power to front and rear axles.

"It will be too heavy!" - this project just like the firewood processor project does not have to float. And a heavier vehicle will handle better anyway when hauling heavy loads.

Stay tuned for future episodes! Thanks for watching!

    Fantastic work. I've watched all the videos and I like the final product. Great job. I have just one curiosity. I know that you cannot put a price on something build by your own hand, but I am curious how much money have been spent on this UTV, not considering the work and the parts from the old van? Just the new parts and the metal involved.

      Amount of money spent on new parts and steel is around 1000 EUR at the moment (half of it was spent on the tires), not including my own work or the donor car.
