POLARIS RZR RS1 – MAKING IT FASTER

-- Testing HCR Racing's modified RS1 -- We got a demo ride in the all-new Polaris RZR RS1 EPS earlier in the year but not enough seat time to report on it fully. Our first impression was that it would make a great short-course racer, but it was a handful in whooped-out desert terrain due to stiff rear shocks and a short wheelbase. HCR Racing set out to cure that with its mid-travel suspension kit (RS1-05400), and we got to test the HCR RS1 Moab Edition build at the Rally on the Rocks. WHAT’S AN HCR RZR RS-1 MOAB…

LONESTAR RACING MAVERICK X3 X RC

-- Building a fast, but bulletproof race machine -- Needing a lightweight “Monster Maverick” for the one-off King of the Hammers and UTV World Championship short-course races, Marc Burnett called on LoneStar Racing (LSR) to build a Can-Am Maverick X3 X rc race car. Unlike most of Burnett’s Monster Mavericks, this car wouldn’t get the usual Pyrotect under-seat, 32-gallon fuel cell (starting at $3850). The BITD UTV Worlds and KOH don’t require a special fuel tank, so the OEM Can-Am 10.5-gallon tank went into this Maverick X3…

YAMAHA’s CLUTCH KIT FOR BIGGER TIRES

-- How to install it on the Wolverine X4 -- If you’re doing a lot of high-altitude, technical trails or wanting bigger tires for your 2018–2019 Wolverine X4 (or new Wolverine X2), Yamaha has an inexpensive accessory—the oversize tire clutch kit (part number BG4-E63H0-V0-00, $49.99, X2s may have a different part number)—for you. The kit includes eight rings called “primary sheave weights” that replace the OEM weights and engage the clutch much quicker. The setup is really ingenious in that it doesn’t require a press or…

RALLY ON THE ROCKS UTV JAM

-- Awesome riding at Moab, Utah -- It took millions of years to form Utah’s sandstone formations that have been designated national parks—Arches, Bryce Canyon, Canyonlands, Capital Reef and Zion—and Utah is also rich in national forests, monuments and recreation areas. Tourists from around the world come to Utah to see the splendor of the red-rock formations, and the tiny tourist town of Moab in southeastern Utah is also a motion-picture and motorsports Mecca. Surrounded by Arches and Canyonlands National Parks, the…

NEW 2-SEATER RS1

-- It's called the R2S2 -- SuperATV is a company in Indiana that makes all kinds of products for ATVs and UTVs. They also sell items made by other companies such as axles, tires and electronics. Their team of engineers were very impressed with the Polaris RS1 when it first rolled into their shop. They couldn't wait to design and test new products to make it even better. Being able to climb the hills of Indiana better made them consider stretching its wheelbase, and then they said, "Hey, why not turn it into a a 2-seater."…
