    Speed Pre-Order

    While this is my first SXS, my ex-race XX with the 77" handles the rough like a dream. Cant imagine what a Speed would be like.

    Speed Pre-Order

    The 77" kit on my XX looks almost exactly like the suspension he put on the Speed. I am not surprised. If you already have a good design in your pocket, use it. Now if can just find 75 more ponies.... lol

    Speed Pre-Order

    Agreed. I have always been one of those who took care of my rigs. Back in my desert racing days, I was twice the size of my competitors, had older bikes (I was broke), and rode as fast if not faster than most yet I had a fraction of their failures (and have a room full of trophies to show for...

    Speed Pre-Order

    I am not doubting you 10 shot. I am simply saying that a dog transmission, if designed and built correctly can and will handle the abuse it was designed for. If bean counters get involved and undersize components, then no, they will not. All comes down to design. RG designed his to be...

    Speed Pre-Order

    If the gears and cogs are sized for the load, it will be no different than the motorcycle at a much lighter weight. Apples to apples. Many high HP road course cars have cog style transmissions. 3500# car with 500-1000 hp. The transmission can be built to handle it if it is designed...

    Speed Pre-Order

    I do not understand. Motorcycles have dog ear transmissions, and you can shift on the fly (with a throttle blip). I own a motorcycle repair shop and do not see failed transmissions very often at all. In fact it has been many years since I have seen a bad one. I almost always shift my...

    Speed Pre-Order

    Even though I do not have a Speed car on order, my Wildcat XX is almost completely SpeedUTV, lol. I have watched all his weekly shows and miscellaneous videos. As an engineer with 25 years in product development, off road enthusiast, and motorcycle shop owner, I have 100% confidence that his...

    Switch to SXS?

    Justin's Can-am is not much of a Can-am any more. Complete new frame, and I am sure other than the engine and drive train, everything has been breathed upon. But, following Speed's videos for the last year, all the aftermarket upgrades in the world can not completely fix geometry issues in the...

    Switch to SXS?

    No one has heard a thing. In fact, AC is awfully quiet about the XX. We are coming up on 22 models coming out and no talk at all. The only thing I have, and it is purely my opinion and speculation, is something I got from watching one of Shock Therapy's videos about what UTV to choose. When...

    Switch to SXS?

    I have been researching SxS to purchase for about two years now. I own a small motorcycle/utv repair shop and work on everything that comes through my shop and that factored heavily in the decision I made to buy a Wildcat XX. I was first attracted to the Maverick X3 turbo R's, but after...
