POLARIS RZR XP 1000 PROJECT BUILD

-- RANCHO RACING'S RADICAL RZR -- By the staff of Dirt Wheel UTV racer Adrian Orellana didn’t drift into the sport by buying a recreational car and gradually adding to it. He bought a brand-new Polaris RZR XP 1000 and immediately tore the entire car apart and delivered the frame to Fabwerx. Fabwerx had no qualms about cutting nearly the entire stock frame away. Basically, Fabwerx started with the two main-frame rails and constructed a new racer from that starting point. Orellana’s race team is Rancho Racing. Rancho…

PRO UTV DRIVING SECRETS

-- UTV racing dos & don'ts -- By Ron Lawson UTV racing is a melting pot of immigrants. The whole sport consists of drivers who came from Somewhere Else. Some are ATV riders, some are buggy drivers and some come from the motorcycle world. A sport that’s scarcely a decade old is unlikely to have its own natives. Even those who have been in it since the start have seen such a tidal wave of change that it’s essentially a new sport today. The interesting part is that there’s no guaranteed path to success. Each…

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. STI has been in the ATV game for years and recently developed stronger UTV-specific tires as well. STI’s latest product is the Chicane RX. The eight-ply tire is available in a handful of sizes that include 28/10-14,…

TUESDAY TREAD: ITP Ultracross R Spec Tire

It’s taking the tire companies some time to get the UTV market figured out. Ten years ago, they were just selling ATV tires to customers buying and using the much heavier UTVs.

Now we are in a refinement era in which the tire companies are taking what works and experimenting with different tread profiles and compounds, trying to balance weight and tire life. ITP’s most successful tire in the high-performance UTV arena has…

PROJECT UTV: BUILDING A BETTER ACE

Project Polaris Ace 570 racer By the staff of Dirt Wheels The FCR dual-rate spring kit gives the Ace a softer ride when you are going fast, and it helps make hard landings feel a lot softer. There is just something great about a Polaris Ace. Maybe it’s the fact that it is a single-seat UTV that is the width of a quad and is a load of fun to drive! You can take an Ace on 50-inch-wide trails with a 320, 570 or 900 engine choice. We wanted to take our Ace 570 from a good trail machine to a full-blown trail…
