Once a month we have mud drags here and they usually let quads run it first before the big trucks. The pit is dug with holes in it and it's really rough. It usually runs about 50 yards long and from 2/5 ft deep at random places. I tried running it two weeks ago and made it just over a third of the way and actually beat most of the trucks!! as I had the speed to stay on top but not the tires to keep it up. (need paddles) BUT there was a brand new Can-Am Renegade there bone stock who flew through the hole like it was running on dirt. All the other bikes got stuck minus one and had to be pulled out there were about 20 4x4 bikes and some were really really nice but this bike flat out spanked them. He let me ride it and it runs like a Cadillac with a very powerful engine and pulls like a trx450r with hrc kit! Hate to be a trader to my red blood but were I to buy a 4x4 this would be it hands down!

Just FYI....

62 hp stock are you serious or is this just a rumor..because diff dynos run diff numbers..I think honda itself even released a hp number for the 450rs a while back that was way too high than it came out to be on dyno

62 is what the dude told me. he had no reason to fib. he knew his ?hit on it to. he said he could punch it and stand it up and ride a wheelie. that's pretty good for a 600 pounder.

Rotax v-twin 62hp at the crank i believe and its a cvt auto tranny... That engine is a powerhouse and very solid...Ron Woods makes a great sounding exhaust for them and lots of other serious hop-up parts

just put down payment on 2009 renegade 800x, which has even more power than the 08.

Arctic Car has a 1000cc thundercat, I saw one at a dealer a few weeks back, the thing is F-ing massive. It's crazy how big and powerful ult quads are theses days. I remember when the grizzily 600 came out and it seem to be like a tank on 4 wheels.
