HCR RACING PRO XP SPORTLINE SUSPENSION

UPGRADE YOUR PRO XP FOR LE$$

WHAT IT IS:

HCR Racing has been upgrading our UTV suspension since the Rhino 660 and Teryx 750 days, and HCR’s high-end Elite and Dual-Sport lines of boxed and internally ribbed A-arms and trailing arms are the go-to choice for many racers, duners and industry builders. HCR started its Sportline series to deliver the same dynamics and technology of its Elite and Dual-Sport 72-inch replacement kits to recreational drivers and owners of Maverick X3s and RZR Turbo S’. At the SxS Adventure Rally on the Rocks, HCR had a Sportline RZR Pro XP build with replacement boxed A-arms and trailing arms for the 64-inch RZR.

Trailing arms and A-arms are made with 11-gauge steel and MIG-welded, and they include hardware for securing OEM brake lines. OEM shock and bar-link locations mean true 100-percent bolt-on installation.

 

FEATURES:

HCR’s Sportline Pro XP 64-inch replacement kit uses HCR’s dual-sport boxed, high-clearance A-arm CAD-CAM design with improved approach angles, but with 11-gauge steel construction. Boxed upper A-arms have stock mounting locations for factory shocks, and so do the Sportline boxed replacement trailing arms. All six components are 100-percent bolt-on and have a high-strength black powdercoating, plus a limited lifetime warranty. Kits include a hardware pack for installation.

HCR’s aluminum high-clearance lower radius rods and hex upper rods sport 5/8-18 RH Heims, O-rings and 16 misalignment spacers. The kit is $650.

 

CONSTRUCTION:

Instead of HCR’s proprietary alloy Sportline kits use 11-gauge steel plates that are laser-cut and MIG-welded, then powder-coated in Satin Black. They’re badged with stainless steel and have chromoly bearing receivers. As a 64-inch replacement kit, it doesn’t include ball joints or spherical trailing arm bearings, as they’re designed as a complete bolt-on kit utilizing OEM hardware, shocks, bar links, carriers and axles. It’s not intended for racing use.

WHO’S IT FOR:

Any Pro XP owner who wants more durable suspension components at an affordable price. Also, the Pro XP Sportline kit has the A-arms extended 1.75 inches forward at the spindles to clear 35-inch tires, so it’s also for those wanting to run 33s or 35s. This build has lower transmission gearing to power 35s more efficiently.

PERFORMANCE:

Rock crawling and duning place extra forces on OEM tubular A-arms and boxed trailing arms, and HCR’s Sportline kit beefs up the suspension with boxed components, adding strength and rigidity. High-clearance lower A-arms and the ability to run 35-inch tires greatly increase rock-crawling capabilities, and retaining a 64-inch width gets the Pro XP into tighter situations like we experienced at Sand Hollow State Park. This build had 35x11R15 BFG KM3s, which greatly improve ride quality as well.

THE VERDICT:

With HCR Racing’s Pro XP Dual-Sport OEM replacement kit retailing for $3,753.74 (now on sale for $3200), the Sportline Pro XP replacement kit is a bargain at $1,699.99. Add strength, durability and the ability to run 35-inch tires to your Pro XP, and it will deliver on adventure after adventure. Or, go big with HCR’s Duner long-travel suspension kit on sale for $6000. It adds 3 inches of rear ground clearance and 8 inches of width.
