P51 TAKES FLIGHT

By the staff of Dirt Wheels *A Build of an Assault Industries UTV know as "P51". So many companies build truly amazing machines for the annual Sand Sports Super Show that it is difficult to come up with a combination that literally stands out in a massive crowd.

By the staff of Dirt Wheels ASSAULT ARCTIC CAT SPEED WILDCAT XX.  Once Jason Craycraft saw information on the release of the Arctic Cat Wildcat XX, he was sure that he had found his UTV.

He intended to make sure that it was just like he wanted before taking it out for a maiden voyage. We have to tell you, we couldn’t do it. WHERE NO MAN HAS GONE BEFORE…

ASSAULT’S ADVENTURE GENERAL 4

By the staff of Dirt Wheels ASSAULT’S ADVENTURE GENERAL 4 As cool and purposeful as race machinery looks, few people ever bother to drive a race build for recreation. The sad truth is, the restrictions required by race organizations (largely for crash safety) are anything but user-friendly. Assault originally created this General 4 as a racer for a NORRA Baja-based 1000-mile rally-type stage race. While it was hoped the car would make a successful weapon for that one race, the General idea (see what we did…

PROJECT POLARIS RZR XP 1000

-- PRO ARMOR MAKES IT EVEN BETTER -- By the staff of Dirt Wheels One of the beauties of off-road is that the sport is accessible. Chris Pino has never had much of a dirt background aside from some local mountain biking. He has owned street bikes and appreciates a performance automobile, but a friend and former coworker found a package deal of two RZR 800s and a trailer. A year later they had driven the wheels off of the 800s and were feeling the limitations in power and suspension. Pino’s daytime job is…
