This was a great show for RT Pro with a huge customer turnout and a world class staff who put the event on. We had an excellent booth space being the very first company all show attendants would see as they walked in to the show and the last they would see when walking out. We had a couple of RT Pro sponsored GNCC racer Jesi Stracham’s Polaris Ace factory race cars on display showing off some new preproduction products as well as our company RZR XP 1000 with our new 20” Long Travel suspension system on it flexing out on the display rocks.
There was a raffle contest for a $200 gift card to www.RTPROutv.com and a discount code to the website available to all physically attending customers. Under our RT Pro tent we had the new Magellan TRX7 GPS Navigation System on display for customers to try out as well as a great spread of our most popular products on display for customers to see and feel the quality and superior engineering while asking or reps all the questions they wanted.
RT Pro was present on-site for all activities including the outdoor off-road event in which we even did a “parking lot install” of our RZR S 800 Replacement Spring Kit on a new customers custom mini buggy he built using OEM Polaris/Fox shocks and wasn’t happy with the performance with the OEM springs. We were so impressed with his work we wanted to see if we could impress him with our springs and ability to determine the optimal rates for his custom application. In our first try out on the track made available to event participants, we had the buggy handling far better than the original springs and the customer was smiling from ear to ear. This shows two things; One, our springs are so easy to install you can do it in a parking lot. And two, we’re so good at putting the right springs rates on off-road vehicles we can even outfit a completely custom car after simply looking at it and getting some weights. The same people who did this are the ones who designed our Spring Rate Calculator many customers trust to determine the proper rates for their UTV Spring Replacement kits every day.
This is one of the best off-road shows in the country because of the promotors and organizers efforts to make it fun and enjoyable for the participants and the vendors. Every night they put on a gathering and a dinner for everyone including a massive truck/Jeep/UTV show right on the river downtown Louisville called the “River Raid Party” and then the off-road industry descended on the famed “4th Street”, also downtown Louisville, for the “4th Street Invasion” on the final night of the weekend and it was quite a site to see.
We’d like to thank the staff of this event for their hospitality and also all the many customers who stopped by the booth to say hello and check out the best UTV chassis, suspension and protection products on the market. We’re looking forward to next year already.
