    Is this your first SxS? Will you do any mudding with it? Do you like speed? How about rock crawling or technical riding? Just trying to figure out what kind of riding your going to do.

    No I have an 800 now and I like it just need more power mostly trail riding hill climbs not so much rock climbing I'd say 90% would be trails just rippin around the woods and I like the RC but the 19 64" only comes in 120hp I believe

    The 72" is too wide for most of the trails around me so I need to stick with the 64. Dont know if the 172hp is worth giving up for the smart lok technology and other features on the RC dont know if the low end torque is set up differnt on the RC than the X3 turbo or not

    IMO, a smart loc dif is worth the trade off in hp. All that hp doesn't get you anywhere in 3wd. 120hp is plenty enough power for any type of trail riding, and it doesn't take much more money, and you can run any power level you want with a tune, and some simple bolt ons. There ain't a visco loc out there that will go toe to toe with a smart loc on slow, technical trails. Doesn't matter how much hp you have, if you can't deliver it to all 4 wheels, it's useless. In high speed applications, it doesn't really matter, but if your a trail guy, Smart Loc, hands down.

    That's what I was thinking the 120hp would be enough for trails I ride and I could always do a tune to get more HP if I wanted it the rc comes with the skid plate winch rock sliders smart lok technology the turbo r has none of that just has more HP I've been back an forth about it

    I agree 100%. We have a guy that rides with us and he has the visco-lok. He has more challenges over terrain than I do.

    So dont worry about the HP and go with RC instead of the turbo R more options come stock nut the main in the smart lok and it's only 500 dollars more only drawback is the less HP

    You get so much more on the RC. I think the RC is going to have a better resale value too.
    Adding more power is cheap compared to all the extra the RC comes with. Full skid plates, frame rails, Smart-lok, stronger axles, winch, stronger power steering.
