PROJECT: Ultimate RZR XP 1000

In the UTV world, the Polaris RZR XP 1000 is a dream machine, one of the elite liter-class vehicles with all the power most drivers can handle and high-end suspension that lets you enjoy the engine to the fullest. Standards are so high among top-of-the-line UTVs that everything is remarkably well done—from the seats to the steering wheel. No matter how great a machine is, there’s always room to improve it, tailor it to one’s personal preference and make it uniquely yours. That’s what Brian Carle set out to do when he got…

FIRST TEST: 2017 POLARIS RZR XP TURBO EPS

The turbocharged UTV wars are heating up with the new Can-Am Maverick X3s making 154 horsepower, so Polaris answers by increasing boost on the RZR XP Turbo EPS to get an output of 168 horsepower and 114 foot-pounds of torque. There are a whole slew of cooling, CVT, driveline, steering and suspension upgrades to deal with the industry-leading power, at least for the moment. We hear Arctic Cat will use the Yamaha SR Viper Turbo snowmobile engine in a Wildcat, but until we see the final product, Polaris is the production-turbo…

SARGE HELPS A PROWLER’S CLIMBING POWER!

Dear Sarge, I own a '07 Arctic Cat Prowler 650 H1. I know I'm out powered by the newer models I've been riding with. The biggest problem I seem to have is hill climbs, whether it's mud or loose dirt, I almost get to the top and spin out. All 4 tires spin. I just can’t seem to get the speed up the hill that my buddy’s 800 Ranger can. These are steep hills and I think I am going to roll backward each time before I reach the peak. I know I have heavy tires which isn't helping. But they seem to work great everywhere else,…

DUNCAN RACING HONDA SPECIAL EDITION 300R

High-performance sport quads wouldn’t be where they are today without the legendary Honda 250R. The incredible 250 two-stroke brought standard-setting engine performance and handling to the sport quad scene in 1986. Thirty years later, a good, stock 250R can do more than most sport quad riders ask. Duncan Racing International (DRI) has built national championship-winning 250Rs, so when we asked how much performance DRI could build into a stock-framed 1988 Honda 250R, they pulled out all the stops and created an outrageously…

PRODUCT: CST DINGO TIRES AND RACELINE TWIST BLACK WHEELS

WHAT IT IS: CST’s Dingo eight-ply, all-terrain radial tire features deep, closely grouped lugs for sure traction in mixed terrain, with more protection from punctures and rock damage than tires with more open-tread designs. It’s available in sizes from 27x9-12 to 32s for 14- and 15-inch wheels. We chose 30x10-14 tires to get a bit more ground clearance than the stock 29-inch tires without adding much weight. Pricing ranges from $173 to $221 per tire, $10–$30 below other eight-ply tires in similar sizes. We paired the…
