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 […]

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 […]

TUESDAY TREAD: PRO ARMOR HAMMER TIRES & WYDE ACCENT WHEELS

 By the staff of Dirt Wheels There is a perfectly good reason that most sport or sport utility UTVs come with a fairly aggressive tire with large, blocky knobs. UTVs are sold all over North America, and it hardly makes financial sense to equip machines headed for different parts of the country with different tires. […]

Tuesday Tread: Pro Armor® Hammer Tire & Wyde Wheel

UTVs are sold all over North America, and it hardly makes financial sense to equip machines headed for different parts of the country with different tires. Pro Armor knows that not every stock tire is most effective for where each rider may live. The Hammer uses 20mm tread blocks that are fairly close together, and […]

POLARIS RZR XP 1000 4 PRE-RUNNER

Off-road race teams typically use a vehicle other than their race car to pre-run racecourses prior to a specific event.

PROJECT ATV: Supermoto Suzuki LT-R450

ATV’s where obviously designed to be off-road machines that can tackle all types of terrain. If you have ever ridden your quad on the asphalt or concrete then you know how horribly an ATV handles on the hard stuff. However, that doesn’t stop riders from turning their machines into road worthy warriors like this radical […]

PROJECT ATV: HOPPED-UP HONDA TRX400X

Since its first year of production in 1999, Honda’s TRX400EX has a reputation for being one of the most durable and fun sport ATVs of all time. The design of the TRX hasn’t changed too much in its lifetime because it never needed to. The air-cooled four-stroke engine is practically bulletproof, the lack of liquid […]

PROJECT ATVs: Bargain Built Suzuki LT-R 450’s

One good thing that has come out of the recent economic recession is smoking hot deals on used quads everywhere. Desperate people are liquidating some of their disposable assets, and savvy shoppers can take advantage of the bargains. Here on the West Coast, sport quads seem to be the most available. We see deals on […]

PROJECT FROM THE PAST: XC Racer Suzuki LT-R450

When Suzuki introduced the track-ready, 49-inch wide LT-R450, they turned a lot of heads. Now amateur MX racers had a machine they could take off the dealer showroom floor, add a few safety features, and race it that weekend. They would save thousands in aftermarket A-arms, shocks and tires. Furthermore, Suzuki had a product that […]
