Four-wheel independent suspension provides unparalleled ride over challenging terrain and excellent handling through corners

RSX front suspension detail RSX front suspension detail

To complement the capable powertrain on the RSX860i, the RSX is equipped with four-wheel independent suspension. This unique suspension setup provides an unparalleled ride over challenging terrain and excellent handling through corners.

 

The engineering team in collaboration with engineering firms that consult with Formula 1®, NASCAR®, and INDYCAR® teams, built a sport-tuned suspension system for class-leading operator comfort, no matter what the terrain, and handling that makes one think they are on rails.

Dual A-arm front suspension features include:
  • Dual, wide-arch A-arm design provides maximum front-wheel control, precise steering, and maximum ground clearance out to the wheel
  • 9 in. (23 cm) of travel provides ample compression and wheel extension, which keep all four wheels on the ground for superior traction and vehicle control
  • Exclusive aluminum-body, high-pressure monotube shocks or piggyback shocks; both provided by Fox Shocks™ racing shocks (see more details below)
  • Solid anti-roll bar, with fully rubber isolated connecting links and pivots, is tuned to provide the most agile and predictable handling
  • Camber during compression to compensate for body roll and to maintain an optimal tire contact patch for improved cornering grip
  • Increasing vehicle width during compression for additional stability.
  • High-strength ASTM 80-55-06 ductile cast-iron knuckle and upper A-arm to support the high stresses of the shocks, constant velocity (CV) shaft, and wheels
  • Automotive-style fully boxed and welded-steel lower A-arms to minimize unsprung mass and maximize strength
  • Maintenance-free rubber torsional A-arm pivots for long life and quiet operation
  • CV shaft protection from sticks that may puncture the rubber boot
  • Anti-dive front suspension geometry provides a solid platform for confident braking
RSX rear suspension detail RSX rear suspension detail
Multi-link independent rear suspension (IRS) Multi-link independent rear suspension (IRS)
Multi-link IRS rear suspension features include:
  • Exclusive multi-link semi-trailing arm rear suspension moves wheel rearward and outward in compression
  • 9 in. (23 cm) of travel provides ample compression and wheel extension, which keeps all four wheels on the ground for superior traction and vehicle control
  • Exclusive aluminum-body, high-pressure monotube shocks or piggyback shocks; both provided by Fox Shocks (see more details below)
  • Solid anti-roll bar, with fully rubber isolated connecting links and pivots, is tuned to provide the most agile and predictable handling
  • Camber during compression to compensate for body roll and to maintain an optimal tire contact patch for improved cornering grip
  • Increasing vehicle width during compression for additional stability.
  • High-strength ASTM 80-55-06 ductile cast-iron knuckle and lower A-arm to support the high stresses of the shocks, CV shaft, and wheels with the toughness to survive impacts from boulders
  • Heat-treated aluminum cast upper A-arms to minimize unsprung mass
  • Maintenance-free rubber torsional A-arm pivots for long life and quiet operation

Standard equipment shocks on the base model– front and rear suspension
  • Exclusive aluminum-body, high-pressure monotube Fox racing shocks
    • Fully adjustable spring preload for different driving styles
    • High-pressure nitrogen gas is separated from the damping oil by an internal floating piston (IFP). The separation prevents aeration (frothing) and viscosity degradation of the oil which improves damping consistency and performance fade.
    • Pressure and heat generation in the monotube is less than a traditional twin-tube shock, allowing for better vehicle control in aggressive conditions.
    • The single aluminum shell of the monotube design allows for more efficient heat rejection and lower overall unsprung mass.
    • Mounting the shaft end of the shock to the suspension arm lowers the unsprung mass of the suspension system, leading to improved suspension response.

    • Piggyback reservoir houses high-pressure nitrogen gas, separated from the damping oil by an internal floating piston (IFP). The separation prevents aeration (frothing) and viscosity degradation of the oil which improves damping consistency and performance fade.
    • Large, 2.0 aluminum bodies help reduce internal pressures and improve heat dissipation, which results in consistent fade-free performance in aggressive riding conditions.
    • Compression adjustment allows the user to tune damping rates for different riding preferences and trail conditions
    • Tuned with Fox factory support on some of the most grueling trails in the United States

Optional power steering for excellent handling characteristics and low steering effort

The Gator™ RSX High-Performance Series Utility Vehicles are equipped with rack and pinion steering with optional power steering, and a dual A-arm front suspension. These automotive-type systems exhibit excellent handling characteristics, as well as responsive steering and low steering effort.

Automotive-type rack and pinion steering with optional power steering Automotive-type rack and pinion steering with optional power steering
RSX860i with optional power steering RSX860i with optional power steering
Automotive-type rack and pinion steering features include:
  • Optional electronic power-steering assist system (EPAS). Features of EPAS include:
    • Anti-kickback feature reduces the amount of steering unwinding when traversing difficult terrain.
    • The system is speed sensing and adjusts steering effort as the speed of the vehicle changes.
      • As speed increases there is less steering assist for improved road feel.
      • As speed decreases steering assist increases to give lower steering efforts for improved maneuverability.
    • A warning/functional light on the instrument panel provides self-diagnostics and a warning light in the situation of no assist.
    • Torque sensor measures steering wheel input so the on-board computer can provide the appropriate output for various driving situations.
  • Steel ball-bearings secure the steering shaft and delivers smooth, responsive operation
  • Tight turn radius of 12.3 ft (3.7 m) for excellent maneuverability
  • Completely sealed rack-and-pinion for long life
  • Low steering ratio (lock-to-lock steering wheel rotations) provides more responsive steering and less operator input
  • Shaft U-joints are phased for a smooth, uninterrupted motion of the steering wheel
  • Ackerman steering design provides more responsive steering, decreases tire wear when used on hard surfaces and is turf friendly (see description below)
  • Minimal bump steer eliminates unintended vehicle direction changes when traversing terrain and permits less feedback to the steering wheel (see description below)

 

The tire scrubbing, which also creates unwanted heat and wear in the tire, can be eliminated by turning the inside wheel at a greater angle than the outside one (Ackerman steering).

 

NOTE: Some competitors use parallel steering instead of Ackerman steering.

 

Bump steering defines the change in the forward steering angle (thus wheel position) as the suspension travels through its full motion. A large amount of angular change (5 degrees to 7 degrees) will alter the vehicle's direction and excessively move the steering wheel.

Large, extra-durable, one-piece cargo box ensures hard-driving performance and longevity

The cargo box consists of a high-density polyethylene copolymer composite material that eliminates rust, dents, and reduces noise. This large, one-piece design has rounded inside corners to ensure material removal when tilted. The composite box is highly ribbed and supported with a welded steel-ladder structure to ensure hard-driving performance and longevity. The three highly styled exterior pieces are made of thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) for extra durability.

The tailgate can be opened or removed for easier cleanout and to carry longer items. It features truck-like performance and can be operated with one hand.
 
The tailgate’s pivot point is made of hardened steel for durability and designed for tool-less removal.  The standard lanyards can also be disconnected without tools to remove the tailgate for convenient loading and unloading tasks.

Cargo box tilt and removal
Integrated handle for manual cargo-box tilt Integrated handle for manual cargo-box tilt

The cargo box ease of use is critical to performing tasks quickly and efficiently. Starting with the truck-style tailgate, the removal of content in this cargo box is much easier. The manual release functions as the lift lever as well, done in a smooth, one step motion. It can even be tilted from both sides of the vehicle. To reduce the overall effort of lift, the pivot point of the cargo box is closer to the center. The combination of easy-to-use attributes makes this cargo box best in class.

 

With the removal of two bolts, the cargo box can easily be detached from the vehicle frame for ease of servicing.
