TUESDAY TREAD: STI CHICANE RX

A NEW TIRE FOR PERFORMANCE UTVS The UTV tire market is hot. Most high-performance UTV owners are choosing to increase their machine’s tire size when switching to aftermarket meats. The most popular size is 30 inches tall on either a 14- or 15-inch wheel. So, this month we spent some time with a new STI tire.

The eight-ply tire is available in a handful of sizes that include 28/10-14,…

PROJECT: Honda 400X Budget Trail Machine

Honda’s 400EX—or 400X in this case—has been around since 1999, where we entered it in the Baja 1000 and set a new record for an ATV at 23 hours, 59 minutes and 33 seconds. At the time, it was the most venerable race quad around, but time and technology have relocated the 400X to the trail quad segment. Numerous changes over the years—to the plastic bodywork and the addition of a reverse gear, placing it against a Yamaha YFZ450 in our April 2012 issue—showed it’s still not ready to die out. For that test, we installed an L.A.…

PROJECT MACHINE: Racing RZR XP 1000

Racing UTVs is getting exciting. It’s growing in popularity like ATV racing was in the late 80s, early 1990s and between 2005–2009. Most regional series have classes for UTVs. In some of the larger series like WORCS, Best in the Desert and SCORE, the UTV turnouts are bigger than the quad, truck and bike classes. To go racing competitively in a UTV, typically it takes more money than talent, and some guys are spending upwards of $50,000 to go UTV racing. We are smarter than that. Sure, it would be nice to race a brand-new…
