ATV PROJECT: DIRTHALO RACING XTRAVEL YFZ450R

A look at unique suspensionBy the staff of Dirt Wheels Quite often in the racing world we see builds that start with a quad purchased new off a showroom floor.

Sometimes these quads can out-price a quality sport UTV or four production sport quads! If people think that is what it takes to enter racing, the notion can seem intimidating to those…

QUADS OF THE WORCS RACES

By the staff of Dirt Wheels QUADS OF THE WORCS RACES. World Off-Road Championship Series (WORCS) is one of the major quad competitions on the West Coast. It requires an interesting combination of motocross start, jumps, and turn skills, but the courses are much longer and the races last for an hour. We went to the season opener at Primm, Nevada, and the course seemed like it held several hundred turns. We can’t imagine that anyone could memorize the entire course like a motocross race. For the past two years, the…

RACE-READY YFZ450R

Duncan Racing International has been in the pages of Dirt Wheels quite a lot throughout 2019 and 2020 issues. That simply stems…
