BEAU JUDGE’S #1T WORCS X3 RR
Inside the No Limit Race Development Can-Am
BEAU JUDGE’S #1T WORCS X3 RR
Beau Judge has been Phil Blurton’s navigator in Best in the Desert and SCORE races for many years, and Beau stepped up his race program several levels for the 2021 and 2022 World Off-Road Championship Series Pro Production Turbo events. Judge and his No Limit Race Development #956 came out swinging. He won the first two 2021 Pro Turbo rounds, and he scored four more wins on his way to the Pro Production Turbo title. Judge dominated the Primm 2022 WORCS opener, winning the Pro Turbo class by more than a minute over Cayden MacCachren. His Maverick X3 X rs Turbo RR is the same car he raced in 2021, only with a new wrap and number—#1T.
NO LIMIT RACE DEVELOPMENT & MANUFACTURING
Blurton’s race shop specializes in short course, desert course and pre-runner UTV builds, and Judge’s X3 got the short-course treatment with X3 chassis upgrades for strength, a No Limit roll cage with roof and custom interior, a front push-bar bumper and shock tower brace, a Sparco Evo GRP-Lite race seat, Mastercraft harness, NL/CBR radiator relocate kit, 72-inch full-suspension upgrade with high-clearance arms, huge NL aluminum tie-rods and radius rods, nerf bars, skid plates, an HMF exhaust and EVO Stage 3 ECU tune. The two-seat X3 Race cage is $3000 with intrusion bars, braces, roof and number plates, and No Limit also has an X3 Sport cage for $2000. Upper and lower high-clearance A-arms are $2000, and No Limit’s trailing-arm gusset kit starts at $475, with another $250 for mud flaps and an extended bolt kit for another $175. No Limit’s X3 HD tie-rod kit is $435, or $520 with FK Heim joints. Blurton also has the X3 radius rod kit with double-shear rod plate and six aircraft aluminum radius rods for $700 or $960 with FK Heims.
FOX FACTORY AND ZRP UPGRADES
Judge was a Fox Factory athlete in 2021, and his factory RC2 Podium shocks were tuned by George White at E2R. Beau also upgrades the X3 drivetrain with front and rear Zollinger Racing Products aluminum knuckles. ZRP’s 7075 knuckles are double-shear and have capped bearings, and 7075 is said to be three times stronger than 6061. The front knuckles are $2999 and only work with 7/8-inch Uniballs or rod ends. ZRP’s rear knuckles are rated to 72,000 pounds of force and have Teflon-lined spherical bearings for $1999.
Beau runs the stock Can-Am axles, wheel bearings, brakes and steering rack, but he upgrades to ZRP billet fuel rail and radiator hoses and fittings. He also runs the X3 Smart-Lok front diff and the stock CVT clutches and belt. He also runs quick-release CVT pins and is set for fast belt changes with a Hostyle clutch tool bag. He also runs Hostyle nets and a custom Factory UTV HMW full skid plate with side extensions that are grooved down to 1/8-inch thickness.
Also for durability, Beau runs an Evo Powersports Torrent-F intake plenum ($1315). Being a factory Can-Am pilot, he runs a Sea-Doo 15-gallon fuel cell, which lowers CG and centralizes mass over the OEM 10.5-gallon fuel cell. At the 2021 WORCS Glen Helen race, he ran Method beadlock rims with BFG KR2 T/A 30×9.5R15 tires with Monster sealant, but he switched to Vision wheels for 2022. Beau uses PCI Race Radios’ fresh-air pumper and radios, and his build gets Superior powdercoating and XPS lubricants. He tears the X3 down and rebuilds it for every race.
