With or without ESP?
« on: September 21, 2015, 07:04:52 pm »
Will there be a big difference on the z-force ex and the z-force ex with EPS? Just curious, cuz when I ordered mine, i did not think of that, neither did they ask if a wanted one with the EPS!

Any thoughts? Hope it's not hard to turn the wheel  without EPS!

They use a rack and pinion system which is pretty easy to turn anyway. The addition of PS is nice in rocky situations or when doing a lot of tight trails or in 4wd. It's a nice addition but not mandatory. I do love mine though because of a bad shoulder.

I really don't think you really need it, I'm 61 and don't ever feel that it would be needed! JMHO

Our demo is a ZFORCE 800 standard... our sales rep sent his new 2016 ZFORCE 800 EX EPS for us to assemble and use until our demo was back up and running...

I will be selling ours to get the EX with EPS. The ride and steering is WAY better. Spend the extra little bit and go EPS you won't be let down.

The trail tires they come with won't last too long on asphalt. You might want to look into a set of radial tires for it. The fellows that spend a lot of time on the pavement run them. Better handling in hard surfaces anyway.

The biggest difference with power steering is when the machine is stopped and you're turning the wheel, or if you've got the differential locked and you're crawling through stuff.  Potentially you can also get some bump steer if you hit something at speed.  Power steering is nice, but most of the time you don't need it.  Don't get me wrong, I'd love to have it, but it's not like the machine is difficult to control without it.
