Turbo S suspension difference

I am on my way to pulling the pin on a XP 4 Turbo S. Unsure on whether I should get a Full blown S or a Velocity. I know about all the stuff the Velocity is missing from the S. My question is for those that have driven both, are the Fox shocks really that much better than the Walker Evans? Any Velocity owners kicking themselves for not paying a little bit more?

Re: Turbo S suspension difference

Did you end up pulling the trigger on something? Wish I had some feedback but can only speak to the "full blown S." It's great but I can't compare it to the Velocity.

Re: Turbo S suspension difference

Can't speak to the Velocity model, but to say that I am impressed with the Dynamics Suspension is an understatement. Add that to the ride command alone, and I think it is worth every penny. Do the math on what shocks alone would cost to upgrade if you aren't happy with the Velocity model.

Velocity 4 seat is amazing compared to my 16 2 seat xpt. Glides over everything so far. Adding in ride command and the lights. I didnít want the Dynamix

Re: Turbo S suspension difference

Is the ride smooth on trails?

Re: Turbo S suspension difference

my .02.

Magnetic Ride shocks are one of the best inventions for suspension in years. I have owned a camaro ZL1 and a Ford Shelby gt350 both with magnetic ride shocks and now in my rzr. There really is nothing to compare to pressing a button to firm up or soften your ride in an instant.. travel down a dirt forest road at 50mph (not condoning this on federal/blm land) in soft,comfort mode, come to a corner, with a press of a button you go sport mode, you can take that same corner with much more confidence and feeling. You can flip suspension modes for anything you encounter on the trail with the press of a button..whats not to like??. It can also save you money on having to upgrade your suspension. Can't tell you how many thousands of $$ i have spent on suspension upgrades over the years. Of course that remains an option for you if you still don't like the ride

Of course suspension is all relative to every individual, so other people may not feel this way but i think those are my biggest advantages of the S over the velocity.

The turbo s velocity has a pretty stiff suspension out of the box. I have driven the velocity and the dynamix. The velocity feels about like the dynamix does in firm. If you like a very plush ride going slow the velocity is not going to b your rig. The dynamix gives you some options. If you are a guy that does nothing but mobbing fast the velocity feels pretty good. My buddy just had his shocks done at fcr on his velocity to try to help the low speed plushness. They did springs and valving. He said it's a drastic difference after the re do.

Have not bought one yet, but I am at UTV Takeover in Oregon currently. Demoed both a S and Velocity. It's true that the Velocity feels a bit like the S on firm. Did not really get to push them that hard as it was a guided demo run. On a side note, I was only able to demo 2 seaters as they did not have both models in 4 seaters.
