2019 max R turbo
Ok I just got back from Glamis this weekend and the Mav and commander ran like a champ (except when the commander bent a tie rod). I got the Mav tuned better but still needed to get it to run better than the commander. So on my way back from Glamis I decided to drop the cars off to the mad scientist, Kelly at KMSperformance. We talk for a while and it turns out that my Mav doesn't seem to be running optimally. The other Mav at the shop was clearly faster. My Mav shifts out around 50 mphs and drops to 7100 rpms at 50 mphs. This causes a slow climb to the max speed of 74 mphs. It seems the dealer didn't load the correct build for the ECU and this is what causes that issue. Once this issue was resolved we talked about the rotax motor the superior design over other UTV's motors. Kelly is working on several developments for the Mav and commander to improve power in these machines. He told me there is serious power in these motors and once the BRP restrictions are removed we will be able to get to this power. I don't believe BRP engineers gave us anywhere close to the power that is in these motors especially when Kelly got commander to outrun the Mav. Kelly is currently getting very familar with the limitations of the Mav and the areas that need the biggest improvement (intake, headers, ecu, cam, etc).
