Recieved the Spring 08 issue of UTV Magazine. Read it cover to cover twice before I put it down. Was great except for one article; the exhaust shootout.
Important information was left out of the SuperTrapp Mudslinger review. A Dobeck Performance programmer was used on all exhaust that did not come with a specific fuel map program. No mention as to what settings were used.
Called Dobeck and they knew nothing about the shootout. Didn't even know which programmer was used. Called SuperTrapp. They remembered sending out the exhaust, but knew nothing of the results.
Does anyone know the answer?
Also a heads-up for anyone that has a Xtreme 3" lift and want to run the FMF duel exhaust. The exhaust will not fit because of the shock relocation bracket.

Does it invalidate the results for the testers to attempt to optimize the Rzr to each silencer? I don't think so but it does add variables to the test and invite questions of whether a product did well because it's better or because the machine prep was better. I think if you're going to do a "scientific" shootout like this you need to use ALL the tools available--including A/F monitoring and dyno runs. It's not very scientific to only measure 0-45mph ETs as the single test criteria.

I wonder which silencer would have won if the test went to 55?

UTV Magazine is not published by the same people that publish UTV Off-Road Magazine. We haven't done a exhaust shoot out yet.

I knew I would cause some confusion. Sorry bout that. UTV Mag. is published by ATV Magazine. However, hoped some one would be in the know here cause they don't. Won't even return E-mails. Several of the tech articles were missing important info. Maybe they plan a follow up, but it would seem that they would be more consistant with the facts. And yes, first exhaust to get you from one phone pole to the next doesn't sound like a high tech shootout to me either.
