MUD RIDING SECRETS

-- Interview with Louisiana's top swamper -- CAN-AM PRESS RELEASE: The thrill of powering through the deepest, gnarliest mud holes on earth doesn‘t come naturally to most people, but Dustin Jones isn‘t most people. Born, raised, and based in Shreveport, Louisiana, his passion for challenging himself and his machines has led not only to S3 Power Sports—but a growing trophy case as proof of all the hard work. We sat down with Dustin and asked him how it all got started—and how you can dip your toes into mud riding to have…

CAN-AM DS 770

-- FAST QUAD FROM CANADA -- Kurt Boyko lives in British Columbia, Canada and he's been a Dirt Wheels reader for 15 years. We thought it was about time to take a look at the quad he proudly rides. It began as a 2007 Can-Am DS 650, but Kurt set out to boost its performance considerably. First, he stripped it down to the bare frame and had it powdered coated in Illusion Orange Cherry. The motor got a big-bore cylinder and a 5mm stroker crank, supplied by OMW Racing, which brought it up to 770cc. The head has 1mm larger…

This contest shows no sign of ending, and it’s not just an engine power struggle; it’s a fight to have the best suspension, most comfort, superior 4WD,…

CAN-AM DEFENDER BED TOOLBOX

-- Checking out a smart new product -- Can-Am's Defender line of UTVs got good reviews from us when they first came out, and we've been seeing many of them out on the trails and in the work force. It's a very practical machine to own, and to make it even more practical, Can-Am is now offering a special toolbox designed to fit snuggly in its rear bed. The rotomolded unit is weather resistant and has a capacity of 40 gallons. It has two lids that open from either side with cup holders molded in. The lids are also molded to…

PROJECT CAN-AM X3 by EVOLUTION POWERSPORTS

-- 253 horsepower never disappoints, By the staff of Dirt Wheels -- Recently, we have found ourselves getting seat time in a variety of machines with Evolution Powersports turbo modifications. Traditionally, when you start leaning hard on a motor and making a lot of horsepower, the power delivery can get finicky and lose drivability. When we first caught sight of the Evolution Powersports X3 in Idaho at the UTV Invasion, it was the look of the car that grabbed us. Later, though, when we strapped in, turned the key and…

CAN-AM SNOW-TRACK KIT

-- Apache Backcountry Track Kit – Maverick Trail Adaptability -- The Maverick Trail side-by-side vehicle is considered an adaptable off-road vehicle because it can tame nasty off-road terrain, yet also adeptly squeeze into the tightest of 50-inch trails, all while providing its occupants the confidence they need to further push exploration. Although already agile and adventurous from the factory, the Maverick Trail can now add quests in secluded Snowbelt regions to its list of proficiencies, thanks to the launch of the…

PROJECT UTV: SHOCK THERAPY CAN-AM X3 MAX

-- Maximum Max—size matters, By the staff of Dirt Wheels -- Shock Therapy has a large and growing profile in the UTV industry. The company is located near Phoenix, Arizona, but has a fully equipped shop in a race semi. If you have seen the truck, then you have seen the techs scurrying around nonstop modifying suspension for customers right in the dunes so they can get a back-to-back feel for the new suspension. Shock Therapy can modify your suspension for any kind of riding, but dune fans are among the most fanatical…

UTV PROJECT: CAN-AM WAR WAGON X3

-- Built for battling the elements, By the staff of Dirt Wheels -- Ever since the Can-Am Maverick X3 Turbo was released, we have been greedily awaiting the most trick builds to appear, and without a doubt, Steve Bechard built an X3 masterpiece. This machine was designed and dubbed the “War Wagon X3” after his daughter, who is a military crew chief and medic of a Medevac Black Hawk helicopter overseas. Every part that was involved in this build was chosen for performance, strength or durability—from the heavy-duty roll…

ASSAULT’S CAN‑AM X3 PRODUCTS

-- Testing Assault's add-ons, By the staff of Dirt Wheels -- Let’s face the facts—UTVs are expensive, and having a UTV and not protecting it and yourself can really put a hurt on your checkbook. Another unfortunate fact is that most of the popular sport UTVs (or even some utility UTVs) don’t come with a front bumper, rear bumper or strong radius rods. If you’re an extreme driver, or you want to upgrade your pride and joy to have more safety, we suggest you do so sooner rather than later. Our Can-Am Maverick X3 X ds…
