slow

just a little slower on the top end and less bottom end just a little slower all around


if u got outlaws then when u get in some sticky mud u might have a tough time turning them

Im running 27 itp's with 12 inch wheels on mine and i find that you do lose about 4 miles an hour on the top end. But as far as the lower end I have a little trouble turning them over in second when the mud is thick but i do get through it fairly easy.

CajunForeman..I have a 500 Foreman and a 650 Rincon...The 650 Rincon had a top speed ( stock ) of over 65...now with 27's and a lift kit...only goes over 48,50. Was it just stronger when it was new, and now its really worn out? It only has maybe 150 hours.. Did I do damage somewhere along the line? It is still super strong in the mud and pulling people out, but you scare me with the 4mph thing...
