    Don't shoot Wildcat XX

    Tracker Wildcat or Textron whatever it is are these machines any good? I see they are 130 HP non turbo so much less than an X3 in HP but what about the rest of it suspension Etc.

    One of my dealers also sells Actric Cat and they have a RG XX out front. I like the doors and the room in the cab but was wondering how good they are. I sell boat stuff and this dealer sells my boat stuff to be clear.

    They are good for what they are, a NA machine. They are built like a tank, have double shear points, roomy cockpit, excellent suspension, but limited to 16" front, and 18" rear travel. If you're going to get a NA car, probably would be the one to get, IMO.

    This is a Canam forum... probably not the best place to ask. Try to get advice on Canam on RZR forum!

    I am looking at getting an X3 but saw this XX and wanted some info if I go to Artic Cat forum they will tell me best thing ever. It is hard to get unbiased opinions. I am more interested in chassis and suspension compared to X3. I turboed my current machine before anyone offered a turbo UTV from the factory.

    he understands that most can am owners are good people and will give an honest opinion not like some of the cool aid drinkers on the popo forum that will tell you how fantastic his car was just before it broke into flames And tells you all is good ,just needs a wash job.

    Have read about some issues w/trans and rear diff other than that sounds like an ok machine and maybe that was an early production issue.

    Before the X3 came out I was waiting on the XX. I own a Wildcat 1000X and liked it a lot. I don't use it anymore since I bought the X3 however would be my second choice. One of my riding buddies has the XX and really likes it.

    The thing I don't like about the X3 is the doors and cage I bang my head unless I am very careful getting in (6'-5")and I think the doors are cheezy. The things I do like about the X3 is power and suspension. I liked the doors on the XX but I did not sit in it. I would like to ride in one to compare the ride of the X3 I have gotten to ride in a standard X3 and XDS R and the 2020 RC RR. I can build HP in the XX if the suspension is good I don't want to have to do suspension and HP. I also like the the bed area and the ability of removing it easily to work on. I will probably just go with an X3 because I don't know where I could get a ride in an XX and won't make the gamble without a test ride on the dunes.

    If you get the X3, just go with a new aftermarket cage and doors. Problem solved.
