    I seen this. I commented on their YouTube page. Told them I'm glad they seen the light & are giving the XX another chance. Just bad luck the first one they got was a lemon.

    I'm skeptical. I see them as wanting each of the OEMs .... for content mostly, business write off, and part store selling.

    It's obvious the camera man doesn't like the answers the drivers give on the XX but he is loving the Talon.

    But again he only likes his rzr no matter what. Having said that LOL

    Looks like they set the rear susp on 3 for this big jump test...not the 1 they probably had on the first test.

    It sounded like from the video maybe Textron changed the shock set up on the 2019 models. Maybe made it a little stiffer.

    The SXSblog guys sound like they do like the Wildcat XX. One of them had a Wildcat before either going to the Can Am or Turbo S.

    More content = more money for them. Their videos are good entertainment.

    They are good guys and do their best to be fair. Nick L is driving the XR-S with a full suspension build and Evo stage 6 engine. The RZR S that Nick S has is Evo tuned also and I believe he has some suspension tuning done. We all know the positives of our machines and the negatives. Who here will say that the spring selection is correct on the XX?? Shock Therapy and Bandit are going to the bank on just that little item. I popped 5 rear axles before finally getting things right and now have 1k of trouble free riding since the last failure. Textron/MLS were GREAT!! and really stepped up. Things will break especially the way these machines get driven. A good dealer makes all the difference. The SxSBlog guys will be good for us in the end.

    Ran in Glamis on "2"...didn't like it-too soft- as soon as I went to "3" all around- BIG difference with the G-outs...actually all around. Felt much better.

    SxS blog guys broke the passenger side front axle on the xx in the newest video. They were doing a tug of war with the talon and the xx. They had the wildcat in the low range lock spinning high rpm turn the wheels back-and-forth and snapped the axle.

    Now what in the world will a tug of war prove? Wow. Now in their eyes Honda is the best SXS on the planet and XX sucks again. LMAO, I do enjoy their vids but come one a tug of war?

    They admitted that they screwed up by doing what they did and that it was not the wildcats fault

    Also, the Talon was on the side of the pond with more traction while the XX was on the muddier side of the pond going uphill. Obviously not optimal.
