Easiest way to more power


CT RACING has been building fast engines dating back to the days of three-wheelers. They then became the masters of getting more power from quads too. Today, they are still the hop-up shop to check out if you want to make your ATV faster. However, CT Racing has also become the experts on building fast UTVs too. They offer the Polaris RZR owner with many options on increasing the performance of his (or her) machine.

One of CT’s kits that makes a lot of sense, increases the cylinder bore and displacement. It offers a bore of 98mm versus the stock bore’s 93mm, which increases engine size from 1000cc to around 1100cc. To become that large they provide their own cast aluminum cylinder to replace the stocker. A new heavy duty crankshaft is required to handle the extra power. Below is CT’s description of their big bore cylinder and Hot Rods crank kits.
