Casey Currie is heading to this weekend’s King of the Hammers with a fire in his belly after last year’s disappointing run. He’s spent most of the winter prepping and pre-running the course, as you saw earlier this week. But this video focuses more on how he gets his 2023 Polaris RZR Pro R ready for competition.

With a crew of Fox technicians on hand, Currie drops all four coilovers out of the big Polaris and sets about getting them ready to deal with the heat and abuse of the Johnson Valley desert. You’d be surprised how quick the whole process is.

Taking the stock Pro R suspension, Currie and his team, who have spent lifetimes in the desert trying to go fast, change springs and valving, but otherwise leave the shocks alone. Considering the abuse they are about to hand out, that is damned impressive. Currie told us himself earlier this fall that the Pro R is basically ready to run out of the box, but we were a little skeptical.

This video shows he wasn’t blowing smoke in our faces.
