    Pro UTV FI Big car vs Small car???

    It's all about the wheelbase, and the ability to put the wait were you want it in the chassis. But mainly the wheelbase is key!!

    Earning your start position for BITD.

    That's kind of what I was thinking. The only guy on the track that has clean air is the first "car or truck" off the line, everyone else is in dust.

    Earning your start position for BITD.

    Everyone in the top 10 was counting on clean air........ Am I missing something???

    XP 1000 Turbo RACE fuel milage V2R?

    I always figure worse case when it comes to fuel milage and racing. The milage depends on what you're racing on, is it sand? Does the section have lots of high speed roads? And then you have to figure what happens if your dragging a flat tire for a while. So when racing the 16 Turbo we figured...

    XP 1000 Turbo RACE fuel milage V2R?

    Are you racing a 2016 or 2017 car? The 17 has bigger injectors and gets worse mileage.

    Baja 500 VW Nerf.....Your thoughts?

    I can't believe you are saying he shouldn't have rabbited on you? After we fixed a mechanical issue we had at race mile 17 I caught you shortly after getting back in the race. I came up behind you and gave you the siren. You looked back and took off running like a retard through a field of...

    Nope. It is going from the coast up to El Coyote similar to the 2004 course, then over to Mike's the fun way.

    Arctic Cat Desert race car purchase program now on ACs website.

    So I spoke with one of the three Speed Cat dealers yesterday afternoon. They told me that at this time they have no info other than the link to the Speed Cat website. I asked how much they are selling for and they said they are not to sure at this point and it should be between 60k to 100k. They...

    Arctic Cat Desert race car purchase program now on ACs website.

    I am definitely not a Robby hater!!! I have always been a fan of his and he has always been nice to me when I see him or talked with him on the phone. The car does not fit the class because it's not a production car. The loophole is that BITD states that there has to be 1000 units, but it does...

    Arctic Cat Desert race car purchase program now on ACs website.

    This is Robby bending the rules in order to race in the class. Yes I have spoken with Cory about this subject and found out why it was allowed to race, but I am not at liberty to discuss the details. Like I said before, Robby got it through a loophole in the rules. And yes SCORE does have an...

    Arctic Cat Desert race car purchase program now on ACs website.

    The fact is the rules state that there has to be 1000 units produced to race in the class. How many Speed Cats have been produced??? We also have to use OEM trannys and front diff OEM motors and OEM turbos from the production car we are racing. My Jimco car is using all of that and a whole lot...

    Baja 500 Hydration Zones

    Yeah, I am all for safety but this is not in the spirit of the Baja 500. It is a long distance endurance race, not a long distance endurance race until you get thirsty. This is what's wrong with most people today, they say it's hard and it's dangerous. And they want to change it so it's easier...

    Arctic Cat Desert race car purchase program now on ACs website.

    The motor combo in the Speed Cat is a "one off" combo. It is not found in any production car made other than the Speed Cat, and the Speed Cat is a made to order car "one at a time" not a mass produced car. The point is that the Polaris and the Can Am's are actually a production car with a...

    Arctic Cat Desert race car purchase program now on ACs website.

    The problem is that they don't specify that the units have to be already produced before you can race it!!! So RG just claims that they are going to make a 1000 units.

    Arctic Cat Desert race car purchase program now on ACs website.

    Because BITD and SCORE fail to say how many cars need to be produced by the manufacturer. The new BITD rules for 2017 are pretty good but left a loophole. The SCORE rules however look like a drunk chimp wrote them on a bar napkin!!! They actually have a rule for the Pro UTV "NA" class that says...

    2017 BITD MINT 400 DRAW ORDER

    Hahaha...... that would be awesome!!! At my first National Hare and Hound race there was over 400 riders taking off of the line at once. When I did the Weston Beach race in England there was over 1000 quads in one giant mass start. I got the whole shot in that one but it was pure chaos behind me...

    2017 BITD MINT 400 DRAW ORDER

    Unfortunately we do not have the budget to race all the races in the SCORE and BITD series with a two car program. So we have to just pick out the biggest ones in the BITD series, the Mint, UTVWC, and V2R as well. So you are in agreement that qualifying would be good at the UTVWC? It is just a...

    2017 BITD MINT 400 DRAW ORDER

    I am not the only one that has the opinion that the starting order sucks. I raced every BITD for eight years back in my ATV days and I have had my ass chewed out on more than one occasion by Casey. One of the many good things about Casey was that he would always pick up the phone and listen to...

    2017 BITD MINT 400 DRAW ORDER

    Again, I see your point on the added expense of having to show up and qualify just to be given a fair shot at a good start. But on the other hand isn't making someone do the whole series in order to have a top ten start asking the same thing? Some people don't have the budget or time to race the...

    2017 BITD MINT 400 DRAW ORDER

    Isn't that the point of a race, to go out and race everyone and see where you end up in the end. Or are you just interested in racing only those going for the year end points? I would not call 40 minutes to an hour behind the leader "the fast group". The UTV class is the only class in desert...

    2017 BITD MINT 400 DRAW ORDER

    Haha..... something needs to change!!! . The whole top 10 thing is a joke. The top 5 at Parker were reasonably close to Mitchy (within 20 minutes). But 6th place was 40 minutes off the lead pace and 10th place was an hour off pace. That should hardly qualifie someone to start in the top 10. But...

    Reid just gave you the best advice that you would ever find about Baja. To me Baja is the most magical place in the world when it comes to racing and adventure. But the Baja 1000 is like no other race in the world. If you are the most prepared team in the world and have been doing it forever...

    I know you have been pushing for it. The funny part to me is we have the largest group of vehicles by far, and we bring in the biggest sponsors to his series. But he still does not want to put in the effort and money to elevate our class to the point it should be. I look at the BITD races and...

    UTV WINTER NATIONALS Parker “250” Presented By Polaris

    We need qualifying in a class this big with this much on the line. We are not just a handful of guys out there racing for bragging rights anymore. There are a lot of teams that put in an extraordinary amount of effort and have the factory backing to prove it that would be more than willing to...

    SpeedCat77 Baja Facts

    You are right, manufacturers have always built race cars in the factory so they can race in a production series. The thing you are very wrong on is that they don't build one at a time. They build them in the factory because in order to be considered production they need to make 500 or a 1000...

    SpeedCat77 Baja Facts

    I totally agree with you Doug. I like the fact that there are more factories involved with UTV racing. But this car should have been in the unlimited class for sure. Nothing against the cars themselves or the effort that the team put in. But it is total BULLSHIT that they raced those in the...

    Official UTVUnderground 2016 Baja 1000 Update Thread

    Very good questions.... We use a lot of OEM parts on our car. Motor, tranny, primary clutch, belt, CV's, front diff, drive line, Rotors, hubs, brakes, spindles, ECU. We use most of the OEM drive train and powertrain and a ton more that I can go on and on with.

    Start draw Thursday for 49th annual SCORE Baja 1000

    Ok, just so I know. What exactly is your problem with the safety rules in our class that differ from other classes racing. And why do you bad mouth the manufacturers like Polaris or Can Am when they are out there supporting racers?

    Start draw Thursday for 49th annual SCORE Baja 1000

    I hate to say this, but reading your post makes me want to gouge my eyes out with a pencil....... You are obviously very well spoken. The weird thing is nobody has a fucking clue as to what your beef is or what your saying.
