  • FOR SALE: BFD Revo (Supercharged Ecotec & Magnum 44) - SUPER clean

    As most of you know, I have O.A.D.D. - Offroad Attention Deficit Disorder. "My thing" is sort of buying cars, getting them perfect, then selling them to start the whole process over again.

    As you probably know I just picked this car up at the start of the season. I planned/hoped to have a lot of time in Glamis this year like I had in the past. Well, life and work just didn't allow for it and so far I've only had 2 trips all season. We have dirt-season about to start up where I live (north of Sacramento, at the foothills of the Sierras) and I want to pick myself up another RZR (Melissa still has her '18 XP Turbo Fox Edition). I really don't want to go back down the road of having 3 off road toys, so the BFD has to go.

    Again, this thing is super clean and shows like new. The trailing arms aren't all sand-blasted like every other car out there, the powder coat on the aluminum still shines like new, the Rigged LED lenses aren't sand blasted out, the windshield isn't pitted or scratched, etc. etc.

    If you went to the Sand Sports Super Show this summer this was the red BFD Revo in BFD's booth - as you saw it was basically brand new at that point. Since then I've put very little time on it with only 2 trips to G, during which I sent it back to LRS for some upgrades (listed below) so I didn't even run it the whole time.

    I like a car that is 110% dialed-in and ready to go, so before I even took it out the car was prepped. Since then I've had LRS change/add:
    • Removed super-narrow Method beadlock wheels with "sucked in" STUs that did not complement the incredible handing of the car
    • Added DWT billet beadlock wheels with 33" Baja Pro front ("shaved/buffed") and 14.5-15 Dune Sport rears (aka "a Funco setup"). Being a mid-engine with a 96" wheelbase this car already turned on a dime and handled better than any of my previous cars, but the Baja Pro/Dune Sport setup was the icing on the cake. This is one of the most fun cars you'll ever dune short of a 1000+ HP Gen 6/GT-whatever Funco
    • Custom dead-pedal (aka foot-rest for your left foot when it's not on the clutch)
    • Re-fabbed exhaust to move the muffler out from underneath the fuel cell (safety first)
    • Holley Hydramat (the pickup in the car ran to the bottom of the cell, made a 180 and went about 1/3rd of the way back UP in the cell, so you'd never use more than 2/3rds of the fuel)
    • Added relay triggered by ignition key for seat heaters (to prevent accidentally leaving them on overnight and having a dead battery - yes I'm that ridiculous, everything has to be RIGHT)
    • Added boost-gauge (just fun to watch, but also good to monitor and I had planned to "turn it up" later)
    • All new CV-boots. Full disclosure: one cracked, so I figured the rest were about to go. We replaced the CV that got sand in it with a brand new unit, but cleaned the old one up for a spare, there are now 3 total spare CVs with the car, 2 are brand new (I forgot they came with the car when we bought the new one - d'oh)
    • All CVs serviced while doing boots
    • Fresh plugs
    • Fresh fuel filters (removed pre-filter because the Holley Hydramat acts as a pre-filter, replaced post-filter)
    • All fresh fluids
    • Serviced air filter + spare filter
    I'm sure there's more I'm forgetting, but as always no corners were cut and it was "maintained with an open checkbook" exclusively by LRS.

    Asking: $33,500 including the Baja Pros/Dunesports on DWT beadlocks, dirt tires on Method non-beadlocks, and the Method beadlock wheels (wheels ONLY), all spares, etc.

    This car is 100% ready to go and will be in Glamis 27 MAR - 3 APR if you'd like to see it in person. I also have a DVD with DOZENS of pictures of the build of this car. You can see all the care and detail that went into it, as well as how everything is wired and plumbed so you'll never have to wonder where something is or how it was built.

    NOTE - PICS SHOW A MIX OF THE DIFFERENT WHEELS/TIRES AND EXHAUST, I'm horrible at actually taking pictures when I'm out, so I don't have a pic on the DWTs all the way around and the final exhaust config. Come see it in the dunes next week for a full view!














    New dead-pedal:



    Boost Gauge (far right):


    DWTs & Dunesports on the back (I was still waiting for the fronts):


    Pics next to our '18 2-seat XP Turbo Fox Edition to get an idea of the size of the car:



    This is honestly one of the most fun dune cars I've ever driven. It can run the big stuff with any fast group you want, no problem, but it can also run the tight, technical smaller dunes better than any of the "big" cars. Don't let the travel numbers fool you, we have our Fox super well dialed in and my Z1 had a top-notch HCR long travel with big Internal Bypass Kings and I can carry WAY more speed comfortably with this car. I'm way more confident and don't tap-out on drops and G-outs like the RZRs do (even when setup right). Sure, a Can Ma'am might have 22"/24" of wheel travel but this will dune circles around one.

    Also, the cab is VERY roomy. I'm about 6' and pretty fat these days (yeah, I need to work on it) and I fit great. It is way roomier inside than a RZR.

    Feel free to PM me with any questions and I'll shoot you my phone number so we can chat.

    I love your style! Good luck with the sale. What's next? I've never met you before, but I can just tell that you're missing a big HP sand rail!

      Whatever it is, we know it will be pimp, well sorted, and for sale at a great deal come the end of next season! I'll be in the market for an upgraded car at the end of next season, so I am going to go ahead and call dibs on it right now.

        If I was doing 90+ days in Glamis like I used to, or heck even 30-60 days then I'd actually be keeping this. It's a ton of fun, fits in our trailers easier (without changing tires) and has a lower overall maintenance burden than the big V8 cars. Also, everything is more reasonable to repair or replace if/when they it.

        Like I said though, we've only made 2 trips to Glamis this year so far. Heck, that's actually not even true. I've made two trips, Melissa has only made one. We're doing one more trip next week to close the season and pick up our trailers and such, but even that will be a shorter trip (probably 4-5 days in Glamis vs. always doing a week+). I'm going to just go with two SxSs for now. I know I've said that before, and have never made it more than a few months without actually buying a rail, so we'll see how it goes.

        Lol. For now it'll just be a really nice RZR build. I think I'd like to do my next rail from a roller on up in my own garage, so maybe in 2020 or 2021 I'll at least pick up the roller. Or maybe I'll buy something else next week because O.A.D.D.

        But for now the plan is either a 4 seat Turbo S or a 4 seat regular Turbo + HCR long travel (really on the fence on S vs. aftermarket LT) and an "expedition" type build. I'll be deleting the back seats and adding storage, probably doing a roof rack etc. It'll be on 35"s with a 10% under-drive in the trans. Actually, I'm also thinking of a non-S Turbo and not doing a Long Travel. I've always wanted to do 4" portals on a RZR - but I don't think that will work too well for Glamis. Of course, for "faster" Glamis riding I could always take our current '18 XPT Fox. I've never had any issues with that on fast runs.

        Anyway - the point is if I was going to have a sand rail right now, this would be it. I'm not selling it to buy a different rail, I'm only selling it because we don't spend enough time in G (we live 12hrs from G, but 1-2hrs from tons of riding in the Sierras) to justify the rail over a SxS.

          Sounded like you were gonna keep this one for awhile hahah. Can this not be used in the sierras? Seems like it’s not much bigger than a RZR, but I’m next to a 3rd grader when it comes to knowing about SxSs

            I like this car and it’s as close to “new” as you’re gonna get! Curious to see what direction you go with your rzr decision next. Can’t wait for the build.

            someone will get a bad ass car here no doubt

              Where the sxs would outshine this is on trails that require 4wd. Or at least a locker. Not sure the riding areas he has is like open desert type stuff where this would be fine.

                Correct. There is a lot of dirt and open desert riding where this would work as well, or probably better than a SxS. However, that's not what we go do mostly. We're on tighter trails, often in snow in the spring months, that require 4x4 (sometimes even low range). A rail has an open diff, so it's really 1wd in slippery situations.

                That said, I also just don't "want" to beat this thing up on a rocky trail. Could I make it work? Probably, but it'd be a shame...
