PROJECT POLARIS GENERAL

-- Polaris’ all-new General 1000 EPS is a huge hit with UTV Action, and we discover new aspects of its capabilities every time we drive it. It’s a fantastic rock crawler with its excellent Engine Braking System (EBS), letting it idle over gnarly rock ledges and down drop-offs, and it crawls at a walking pace in low range. With 12 inches of travel, you want to ease over the larger rock faces and ledges, so a walking pace is the upper limit of the General’s rock-crawling trail speeds. Adding travel to any recreational sport…

TURBO YOUR YXZ1000R!

We featured the HCR Racing Long-Travel Suspension (LTS) kit for the Yamaha YXZ1000R in the March issue of UTV Action magazine, but development wasn’t completed in time for us to do a thorough test. HCR has since dialed in the King Racing shocks’ valving and spring rates, and King Racing technicians had the HCR YXZ up to 85 mph in deep desert sand whoops near Barstow, California! HCR has also added the Mountain Performance (MPI) 155-horsepower Turbo kit that we reported on in the January issue, and we got a chance to test the…

PROJECT TEST: ADVENTURE RZR XP 1000

In our January 2014 issue, we reported on how Allen Knowles of CT Racing set up his Polaris RZR XP 900 for comfort while exploring and getting to prime hunting and fishing spots. Scott Lee of Tri-State RV Supply, HCR Racing and MCXUSA Turbos had the same idea when he built this RZR XP 1000 for Karen Alstott so she could go exploring and rock crawling at Moab and Sand Hollow. Although he has access to all of the long-travel suspension of HCR Racing and 180-horsepower MCXUSA turbos featured in last month’s shootout against the…

Modified Shootout – Maverick vs. RZR

Can-Am has enjoyed sales and racing success in 2014 with the Maverick 1000 X rs and DPS, but Polaris upped the ante in the 1000 class with the new RZR XP 1000 producing 107 horsepower to the Maverick’s 101 horsepower. The new XP1K also has more suspension travel at 16 inches front and 18 inches rear to the Can-Am’s 14 inches of travel. Neither has the travel of the Wildcat 1000X at 17 inches front and 18 inches rear, but the 1000X only produces 90-plus horsepower. HCR Racing’s suspension kit for the Wildcat only beefs up the…
