    Team Honda Talon Factory Racing Announces Drivers for 2020

    I heard turbo class for the Mint and KOH. They are racing a limited amount of races and I am not sure which BITD races they will be at, if any. Score races will be in the turbo class. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    New Honda Talon to launch Nov 27th 2018!

    Alba is already working on the Talon. On their dyno it put down almost 86hp to the wheels. It sounds pretty sweet with an exhaust and you can hear the car shifting. The Talon is going to be fun with a turbo...

    The Shock Therapy review was awesome. Their impressions is exactly what I thought after rain with a Wildcat XX in Baja. They are racing a Wildcat at the Mint. Curly and Moe! Lmao!!! It does not seem like Textron let any of the media people have a unit. I don’t think John at UTV Guide...

    Another avenue of marketing. They film a lot of their rides. Shows their many followers and joe public how well the Wildcat does and how it holds up. Why do you think Polaris jumped on board with them? Sounds like Honda is letting them have a test unit. Can Am invites them to events...

    Why do you think they are biased? They may not know everything but they do a decent job. Textron would of been smart to let them have a Wildcat XX. They have a big following and would at least be another avenue to get the work out other than RG pimping his Speedcat stuff. Sent from my...

    I want to drive one. Looks like Honda hit the mark with the 6 speed DCT set up. I want to see how the gearing does with a 32” tire. I think the SXS Blog guys do a good job. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Looks like the media got to test the Talon out in Sand Hollow, Ut. Looks like a fun car to drive and the DCT set up is pretty slick. These guys did a good review and seems they were impressed.

    Sounding board before i pull the trigger

    The Wildcat XX is a really nice car. It will need a lot less to be ready to race versus the XP1000. Problem is all the bugs on the Wildcat XX in race trim have not been figured out. The XP1000 all the known issues have a solution.

    Has the Fat Lady Sung?

    There are several brand specific Facebook groups and Instagram. Many of the racers also have Facebook pages. Honestly the technical content is not on social media. The forums are still a better source for technical stuff. It seems many of the users on this forum have moved elsewhere. I...

    Has the Fat Lady Sung?

    Lack of new content, no race reports and no one seems interested in the site. I would come on here to check out the latest race news and now there is very little. I think the facebook pages have also slowed down forums. They need to pump some life back into this place.

    Dakar 2019 - UTVs

    So the Dakar has been completed: Cassie Currie finished 4th overall in his Can Am. I think more than 90% of the SXSs racing in Dakar were Can Am X3s. Robby Godron, Blade Hidebrand, and Cole Potts finished in their Speedcats/Wildcat XX. Interestingly Blade came in 1st place in the OP1 class...

    You can go directly to Walker Evans in Riverside for shock work. Also Ed Niemela "The Suspension Guy" in Fontana and does a lot of shock work on Walker Evans, Fox and Kings on UTVs. I had Ed do work on my X3 Fox shocks and much better riding car with his work. (714)343-3399

    Fun to watch. Robby got shafted when they told him no speed limit and then after he commits and things are being shipped there is a 80mph speed limit. There are a lot of UTVs entered in the race in both the UTV class and car class. There are at least 2 other UTV besides the Textrons in the...

    You clearly are blind if you don’t understand the power of marketing. Go out to any riding area in this country and tell me how many Polaris products you see compared to the others. Can Am is making some strides with the X3. Until this year in Glamis there are almost as many Can Ams (X3s) as...

    Only you are hyped. The rest of us are just fine and not worried about a 104hp Honda. Polaris has nothing to worry about. The RZR name is synonymous with a SXS. More people know what a Polaris RZR is then a Honda Talon. Not much will change. Polaris is a marketing machine. Sent...

    Launch control. The UTV drag racers have that on their rubber band turbo cars. Launch control is not going to help it much racing against the others. CVT is instant power and get the car in the happy rpm range quickly. The turbo cars don’t have much lag with a CVT set up. Sent from my...

    There you go with "groundbreaking" and "game changer" type language. How about you just stick with DCT set up. Honda is being really dumb by not having the Talon at the dealers now. They are missing out on lots sales for those ready to run away from the CVT set up. Or maybe it is really...

    See first post above. Since the Wildcat XX at 130 HP NA is not mentioned with the same speed limiter we'll throw that one in too as 'close'. Meanwhile, we'll ask every 100 HP owner out there without another car in their future anytime soon if 104 HP ('or so') isn't making the family VERY happy...

    No they do not have twice the hp, but a turbo with 60+ more hp is a big difference. You are probably not a dune person or someone that likes to rip across the desert, so HP is not your thing. Nobody is arguing the Talon does not have good suspension numbers, nor does it have half the...

    By your responses I can assume you have never cleaned your clutches on whatever SXS you may own. Your responses are very typical of an engineer that does not take actual real world experiences into account. If the computer says it will work or this will happen, then it must be true...

    So you do not know how to operate an air compression and air nozzle? You act like it is some difficult task. You blow out the clutches to remove what dust is in there and gives you a chance to give to look at your belt. This is about as basic of a task as you can get. Guess what the...

    Why don’t you read my previous post where I explain my experience. The CVT is not a pain in the ass. It is quite simple and easy to maintain. Plain and simple the clutches will last. My XP1000 clutch lasted 5000 miles. Why because I took the time to blow them out after each trip and inspect...

    I disagree that the parts are shoddy on the clutches. If you do some maintenance (take the clutch cover off and blow out the clutches with an air hose) they last a long time. My XP1000 went 5,000 miles before I had to replace the primary clutch (dunes and desert miles). Blew one belt at...

    You crack me up! Turbo cars are going no where and still king of the hill. Although 104hp is plenty for most it is not enough hp to make people dump a turbo car and go run and get a Honda. Nor will the gear drive (DCT). Sorry the sand crowd is not running away because Honda has a DCT...
