BUILD GUIDE: Modify your ATV/UTV and Truck

Year after year, ATVs and UTVs are using more automotive components. Parts like CV joints, electronic fuel-injection systems and tires can be cross-referenced to the automotive world. So it’s no wonder we are seeing more automotive companies jumping into the popular powersports game. We have come up with a list of companies that build products […]

SHOOTOUT: Sport quad 450 Duner Shootout

Back in the June issue we brought you a shootout using these same three quads. In that test we took them for a day of riding in the tight trails. We wanted to see if the latest Yamaha YFZ450R would perform well against its narrower competitors, the Honda and Kawasaki 450s. Surprisingly, we didn’t have […]

ATV TEST: Racing 450 Shootout

This is the golden age for performance quads.

We hope it will be far more than a fuel-injected version of the current 450R. The […]

All of the big ATV manufacturers build quads for smaller riders, and most of the machines are great. However, if you want to get your kid into racing, you have to consider looking beyond the big brands. DRR is a small Ohio-based company that plays by the government’s rules, yet can design and import vehicles […]
