WILDMAN PROJECT X MAKES PROGRESS

May 14th, 2019.


The ATVs Only/Jason Wildman Polaris 4x4 project made a huge advancement last week as the (now) 45-year-old started fitting some of the high-end parts that will eventually turn the standard Polaris Scrambler XP1000 into a top-quality racing force to be reckoned with!


The Big Gun exhaust is on, Jay Parts steering stem and clamp on, Demon shafts in, Jay Parts brake discs and callipers on, Terache tyres – complete with Tyre Johny’s - and DWT wheels are looking bang on point, and a Jay Parts strengthening kit has been fitted.




After many hours of labour, Wildman and partner Tracey Lloyd, were well-rewarded when the machine was back on its wheels and moving by the end of the week. “It’s going to have the shocks measured on Wednesday,” said Wildman. “Then I’m going to ride it at the Motorcycle Off-Road Enduro Club (MORE) on 26th of May in readiness for its first full-on competitive outing at the 10H de Goncourt in France over the weekend of the of 9th and 10th June 2018. I’m looking forward to putting it through its paces.”



ATV-specialist brands and companies involved with the project include Fasst Company, PEP Suspension, Beringer Brakes, Jay Parts, Big Gun Exhaust, Douglas Wheel, Demon Powersports, Polaris UK, JMK Quads, TeracheTyres and 2TuffRacingProducts.

Wildman rode in the competitive 4x4 Heavy class at the DQR ATVs Only MCF British XC Championship on Sunday the 12th May. He finished down the order in an uncustomary seventh – the problem was caused by the wet and muddy conditions clogging his quad’s radiator and overheating, rather than anything else. Wildman was quick to add; “My fitness levels were fine!”
