For those unacquainted with the experience of offroading in a Polaris RZR, allow me a few brief words to familiarize you with the sensations. Dusty. Bouncy. Jarring. Thrilling. Windy. Scary. Rattling. And after you’re done, Aching. For most weekend-warrior RZR drivers, the raw joy of conquering the backroads and trails of the western deserts of the USA have to be balanced by the raw muscles you’ll have the day after. But that “offroader’s hangover” might be a thing of the past, thanks to Polaris’ new Dynamix suspension.
Ask yourself three questions. Do I need to tow something? Do I need to carry stuff? Do I need to haul people? Chances are you answered “yes” to at least one of those questions. That doesn’t exactly immediately suggest your next vehicle purchase. But if you answered “yes” to all three, the folks at the Golden Bow Tie would like a word with you.
Propel, largely known for its lightweight remote-controlled drones and helicopters, has officially announced the US release of its line of Star Wars battle drones. Already available to order, at launch, pilots can try to bullseye womp rats in Luke Skywalker’s classic X-Wing, shoot Jedi from the sky with Darth Vader’s TIE Advanced, or dodge trees on the Speeder Bike made famous by the Endor forest chase in Return of the Jedi.
