And that is what SUCKS!! Because I Love my 18' XX...BUT...its 4 years later and no change in the platform!...I'm SHOCKED they are still making them actually...at some point soon they are gonna hit the wall...which should have already happened actually..... I guess I'll just have to get a Can-Am or Polaris at some point in the future

I added one to my xx love the speed can go up to 45lbs of boost over 600hp on race gas at my camp there's long ass straight roads were we can use the turbo and its nice on steep hill climbs with little room to get going at speed the xx is real steady I've had other side by sides up to high speeds (super charged yxz up to 90)not nearly as steady as the cat

If you like your XX platform then the machine you should be looking at is the Speed UTV as your upgrade. The XX was the vision of Robby Gordon. The XX primary design was his. He holds most of the patents on the XX and has incorporated all the good things about the XX into the Speed UTV. A matter of fact Mike Nemic a design engineer who also worked with Arctic Cat and Robby on parts of the XX came to Speed UTV to help develop the new Speed machine. Then you have Todd Romano who was apart of the XX program along with the aftermarket SpeedSXS product line. Several other engineers from the off road, NASCAR, Indy car, snow sled worlds come into be apart of the Speed UTV.

So when your ready to replace your XX check out the Speed UTV. I think it’s going to give your everything you are looking for.

I hope you have zero intention of trying to get anywhere close to this!! If you are PM me and I will tell what it is gonna take. Me and my buddy were on the bleeding edge of the horsepower wars (sand outlaws series with a YXZ) and know the ins and out of the motor and what it will and wont take. LOTS of broken parts in mine and my buddies shop when you over 35ish llbs.... better just send the block to get "fire loops" now and get a Motec or Emtron stand alone on order.

The motor will make crazy power, just takes a medium fortune to do it...but everything does in this sport!
