    When I got my XX I couldnt drive it hardly. It would blow thru the rear shocks and bottom out on jumps. With a few changes it rips now. Shock therapy spring and revalve, black diamond clutch kit, and limit straps from sandcraft. It really needs the bump pad too for the rear too. The stock helix is garbage for spirited driving. Get one with no engine braking. The primary spring that comes with the kit is alittle stiff for me. Clutch engagement happens around 3000rpm now which is too high for technical riding. They told me to put back in the stock spring to bring it down. Im really happy with it now.

    If you dont get the rear shocks sorted and the bump pad put on your asking for trouble. Go to farm supply place and buy a horse stall rubber mat. 3/4 thick and cut it out. Think it was 25bucks for a big mat. You can probably make about 10 from 1 mat.

    I’m running the alba header and tune and speeds clutch kit. It really rips now very happy with the upgrades. It excellerates a lot faster according to my butt dyno lol with a top speed in the lower 80’s. In my experience you have to do some clutch work if you get alba tune and header because I was hitting the rev limiter with stock clutching. Probably do to the added hp the header and tune add. Im running stock tires.

The SxS blog crew is important to the sport I believe the manufacturers are paying attention to you, others, and forums.
    No big deal man, I'm just proud of my buddies and how far they have come. They get a lot of hate on the forums whenever they have a bad experience with something, people just take stuff so seriously, and personally.
    Hopefully they are, they are trying to get a good relationship built with all of them.

    The rs1 will beat it cause it's straight up faster, but that thing hangs with turbo cars. The X3 just had way more power to pull out of the corners, it was able to cover up mistakes with raw power.
    The XX is a momentum car, it didn't have the low end grunt it needed to fix mistakes on that course. You can see Sous had way more experience on that track than Rick or I, and it showed with his times, and showed that car is capable of some fast times.
    But tell you what in an upcoming video from a recent ride... I wouldn't have wanted to be in any other machine for the trails we were on. Thing rode like a Cadillac.
    i can’t agree with you that the xx needs a diff motor. The Yamaha 998g is one hell of a motor. It’s already producing 130hp put a header and tune in it and your over 140. What other na motor dose that? The problem with not having the low end grunt you want is do to its crappy stock clutching. Put a good clutch kit in the xx and it’s a night and day difference in Power delivery. Way better.
    Does sound like a little tinkering goes a long way with it, I'll try and talk to the guys about possibly working on it more.
    I know they need to do the padding for the rear diff, I've hit it a few times. One time at the dunes with cleetus, G'd out and felt like I about broke my teeth out lol.

    I'm in Havasu every winter for 5 months. Does not feel too crowded for me and there are hundreds if not thousands of miles of trails here and the surrounding area. Considering SXS's are street legal, this place is paradise for us off road fans. This is truly an off road friendly city with lots of places to ride. The 750 mile Peace Trail runs through here too.

    If I can find an RV site in the winter...I have been hearing they all fill up. Also looking at Parker of course, Ehrenberg, Quartzite and Wickenburg.

    2021-22 winter I should be established in the new hacienda in PV....then down to the river I go.

    Bought a XX in april of 18. Had an axle issue. It was handled by Textron and my dealer. There were some issues getting the right hand talking to the left hand but got it fixed. I've been in the SxS game long before the awesome line up of OEMs we have now (wasnt anything but a Kawi Mule). Have been tricking these things out and riding them hard for years. I've either routinely driven or owned every brand except the Talon. I have lots of buddies in the SxS game. We sink endless dollars and time in our habit. Here is my two cents. All machines break! It's not a question of if, it's a question of when. We all drive dunes woods desert and rock crawl. Maintenance and knowing the cars limits is everything. The XX is better than good out of the box. However, clutch work, exhaust, shock tunning, and ECU makes it a whole different beast! BTW, the car is heavy because its built solid. The car doesn't squeak and rattle after a day of pure abuse. I love mine. I realize it's not a turbo car and keep my expectations realistic.However, I can honestly say I can run with my buddies' turbo cars just fine in the sand (maybe a second behind) but I know how to drive. Buy what you want it's your money. My XX has been worth every penny even if Textron mega corp has disappointed me a bit.
