Not gonna get an actual realistic score off this for these 2 models with this test but both are purpose built sport rock crawlers.
Im guessing Rmax would fall in between the 2 with all bars disconnected on all of them.
One thing I’ve learned prior to even seeing this is that the XRC is really challenged in the flexing dept. This proves what I always thought and most people with that model seem to only be comfortable disconnecting the front bar. I would think that they may be better off disconnecting the rear and leaving the front but I could be wrong. The Rmax seems to corner just fine with only a front at high speeds.
Food for thought for any X model owners who have a rough ride and are always on three wheels. Kinda shows how much different it really is!
Should have had rougher roads while filming the passengers.
On a serious note. I've had a few question me on the the sway bars removal on both my X4 and RMAX4. I noticed more of a difference on the X4 but think the RMAX benefits too. I don't ride pavement much and if I do its not much over 35 MPH and not any sharp turns. To me the RMAX feels much more stable on the trail or gravel roads than the X4. Learn to steer by throttle for all the people who say its unstable. If I was a highway cruiser, then I might leave the front bar connected but I'd still disconnect the rear. Yamaha gave us a lot to play with before going aftermarket but people have to get out there and try different setups to find what works for them.
One other note before I get off here for the night. Anyone noticed the more um (not sure how to word this) women are on videos with Rock vs rap? Just a thinking point so nobody get offended. Personally I like older Country and have yet seen anyone surpass Dolly in her prime.
