2010 Can-Am model information releasd

2 posts in this topic

2010 Can-Am model information releasd, full info available on their HSOforum. Looks like Can-Am made alot of positive changes, although with more features comes an even higher MSRP over past years.

A few Highlights. way too much to list.

Dynamic Power Steering (DPS)-Can-Am introduces its advanced power steering system on all Outlander XT models, the Outlander MAX Ltd models and the Renegade X xc. DPS comes with two rider selectable modes (“Min” and “Max”) for more or less steering assist that is selectable by the rider for preference or terrain – an industry-exclusive feature. The Can-Am DPS has a quicker response to steering torque input than other power steering systems on the market, and it has more kickback damping than the competition without sacrificing essential feedback. In short: Less kickback, more feedback. And you can be assured the high-capacity, fade-resistant 50-amp motor means

the steering assist level will never change no matter how hard you use it – unlike some competition’s systems that fade with constant heavy use. If you need more convincing our system stands up to whatever the trail bring, Can-Am racers have already proven DPS in the gruelling GNCC race series.

Air-Controled Suspension (ACS)-The 2010 Can-Am Outlander MAX LTD line comes equipped with the industry’s first air-controlled suspension. The ACS adjusts the rear high-pressure gas Fox Racing Shox-built suspension to six rider-selectable levels depending on the trail conditions or rider preference. This allows the LTD to maintain handling characteristics even when fully loaded. The ACS air compressor also comes with a hose that can be used to fill tires while out on the trail. In addition to the Outlander MAX 800R EFI LTD, Can-Am now offers a Outlander MAX 500 EFI LTD option.

Visco-Lok QE-All DPS-equipped models also come standard with Visco-Lok QE, which engages the Can-Am-exclusive Visco-Lok progressively locking front differential even quicker – as soon as there is a speed difference between the two front wheels. This is the only fully-locking front differential in the industry that has no speed-limiting drawback.

D.E.S.S. Expands – All Can-Am Outlander ATVs now have the industry-exclusive D.E.S.S. security system. The acronym stands for Digitally Encoded Security System, which means only the owner’s key can start the ATV. With D.E.S.S., the ATV will not start by any other means other than its matched key.

that new renegade XC with the beadlock wheels looks awesome. and 71hp to boot. a little on the spendy side at $12k though.

    •   You will get plenty of recipes for a brine or injection, or even an injectable brine which work good for turkey breasts.  A common injection are the store bought ones you see in sporting goods stores in the cooking section. All kinds of flavors from Cajun, to Honey Butter, Garlic & Herbs, etc. Some even come with a free syringe.  Some simple injections you can make are apple juice (plain or jazzed up), beer with seasonings, a doctored up chicken broth and one of my favorites a Lite Apple Brine.  Since it's injected I like lower salt than you would use for an immersion brine.  My Lite Apple Brine's ratio is 1 gram of canning salt mixed into 1 ounce of apple juice.  If you buy an 8oz bottle of apple juice, just add 8 grams of canning salt, shake it and you are ready to inject.     Years ago I asked Old Dave, an online friend, for help on an injection for a pastramied turkey breast recipe I was developing.  He sent me a modified version of Shakes Injectable Brine, which is fancier than my Lite Apple Brine.... and guess what, I really like it too.  Here is the recipe... and if you want to read more, I'll have the link to my write-up below.  BTW, I was skeptical of the cloves, but I tried the first one following the recipe and it's good.  My only variation is I'll use agave nectar instead of the honey sometimes.    Old Dave's Poultry Injectable Brine, based off of "Shakes" Injectable Brine. 
      32oz clean water (non-chlorinated and not softened)
      1/4 cup pickling salt
      2 teaspoons of TenderQuick
      1/3 cup clover honey
      3-4 bay leaves
      1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
      1/2 teaspoon pickle spice

      Heat it up in a sauce pan but do not boil. For a 12-15 pound turkey, inject 2 oz in each leg, 2 oz in each thigh, and 4 oz in each side of the breast. 16 oz total per turkey. I like to do the injection at least 8-10 hours before the fire.   My Pastramied Turkey Breast write-up can be found HERE   EDIT, you smoke them until the internal is 165° to 170°.  An injection will help keep them moist even at the 170° temp.  I like a mix of cherry and hickory, but keep the amount gentle.  Apple would be a safe bet for your first one and you can always use a stronger wood next time.  
    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
