CAN-AM MAVERICK X3 TURBO

-- 2018 UTV TEST: Killer Can-Am for under $20,000 -- By the staff of Dirt Wheels, Photos by Pat Carrigan Can-Am has obviously hit a home run with the Maverick X3 platform. When it was released, it came in 64-inch- and 72-inch-wide flavors. In the end, 2017 was a banner year of race wins, championships and sales records for Can-Am. Soon after the initial releases, the Maverick X3 Max followed up with seating for four adrenaline junkies. It only makes sense that Can-Am would leverage the basic X3 platform with a…

KOMBUSTION RZR & X3 BUILDS

-- Making them better for fast rides on tough mountain trails -- This is the second time that we have met the guys from Utah-based Kombustion Motorsports to have adventures in their personal machines. Sure, both of these vehicles are rolling calling cards for the popular UTV repair, build and hop-up company, but these are machines that have and will continue to be driven hard and often. Even better, they work like they are supposed to on the trail. We took both machines into the mountains on forest roads and…

DUAL SPORT CAN-AM X3

-- Building a special UTV for a Dakar Rally veteran -- A famous racer claimed that the most important 5 inches in racing is the space between your ears. So much of off-road driving and racing is affected by your mind. Former off-road motorcycle star Chris Blais has the mind of a true off-roader and a racer. KTM is a rally powerhouse now, but when the company first got serious about the sport, KTM held tryouts in the desert. Blais impressed enough to earn a spot on the team for the Dakar Rally in South America. He…

MUD RIDING SECRETS

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…

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…
