Glazzkraft Turbo Stretch
Hector and the boys at Glazzkraft have been building killer looking RZR body kits for a few years now. They are also known for incredibly over the top, detail oriented Off-Road race builds. When the XP900 came out they built a no expense spared, Baja race RZR, only to have Polaris release the longer wheelbase XP900 4 right as they were finishing up. The 4 seat chassis’s longer wheelbase quickly proved superior in the whoops, and pretty much any other rough terrain. Already having a sizeable financial and time investment in there two seat race car, the “STRETCH” was born.
The first Glazzkraft stretch used substantial chromoly tubing, and some pretty impressive fabwork to transform the two seat race car into an exact copy of the new four seat dimensions. On the race car, the back seat area was used to house a fuel cell and other race necessities. Polaris gave us the green light to build an XP Turbo into whatever our hearts desired, we couldn’t help but dream about 140 HP, long travel, family wagon with four custom Beard suspension seats and harnesses. While Polaris beat us to the punch with their new XP 4 Turbo, we can’t believe how cool our custom one came out.
Our Glazzkraft Stretch began with a major strip down, and sub-sequent lengthening of the chassis, driveshaft, wiring harness, and cooling hoses. With the XP Turbo and XP1000 they don’t even have to remove the engine or transmission. With the stretch mimicking an oem 4 seater, the Glazzkraft bolt-on cage, and body kit fits without any modification. With our very own custom four seat family wagon, we had to finish out the build with a handful of our favorite accessories. The exterior gets 30” BFG’s were laced up on super tough, 15” Method beadlock’s, and the cargo bed gets the new Polaris/Ogio trunk bag. Unbelievable, race quality lighting is handled by a single 40” combo light bar from Baja Designs. The curved LED bar mixes both driving and spot pattern LED’s for a true one stop shop.
The interior is where our new Turbo powered luxury RZR really starts to get interesting. Appropriately Nicknamed “Apparatus Maximus” the carbon fiber Glazzkraft dash is filled with not one but three different tough screen devices. We started on the navigator side Polaris’s new 7 inch, touch screen Lowrance GPS. In the center Mob Armor’s Elite Race Series Tablet enclosure houses an Ipad Air. Below the Ipad is mobile command center 1, the Sierra Powersports, touch-screen DVR recorder records all the action as well as creating it’s own. The 7-inch touch-screen mirrors your smart phone as well as delivering amazing tunes to the 7 different Kicker speakers that are mounted in SSV enclosures throughout the RZR.
