    Just released on the CARB website: Wolverine R-Spec - 47 HP

    Some guys were thinking it would be in the Teryx range, but it's still about 10 HP behind. Only a couple more HP than the old 700.

    It's a good bit lighter though, I think power to weight ratio it will be very very close to a Teryx.

    I thought the same thing about power to weight being close, but IMO they missed an opportunity to come out ahead of the Teryx in more than just suspension.

    I agree @DLB. I was a little excited about the R Spec. But now just as disappointed as I admit originally.

    10 models listed, only 6 shown so 2 special edition models with and without eps coming soon lol. At 200 #s lighter and if no limiter like on the teryx it might be okay but man did they really screw up on nailing it out of the park with their engine choice.

    With 47 HP I can't see where 200 lbs lighter is going to benefit anything. I guess it all linear power...LOL.

    I understand it will spank the teryx in a drag race but that is just hearsay.
