Awesome video....do you know if the Maverick ever got around the XP1000? I saw another video from onboard the Mavrick where he was on it's tail for a long time. It actually ripped the rear bumper off of the XP1000....
Am I the only one who thinks its kind of funny that a stock XP900 won?

What do you mean "losing a wheel"? Whats the common problem wheels, hubs, studs, or is it just tires?I think on UTV UG someone posted the Mav got around the XP1000 but then broken by losing a wheel. Seems to be common problem on the Mav's that are racing.
I have heard alot of racers are breaking the hub end? which has a bolt that holds the hub on? Not sure exactly but have heard it has happen quite a bit on the Mav's. In fact I think it also happened to a guy at the WORCS race in Pala a couple weeks back .What do you mean "losing a wheel"? Whats the common problem wheels, hubs, studs, or is it just tires?
Stock is bone stock motor/clutch with stock shocks and wheels (can us X wheels and shocks) tires and springs are allowed so we run racer tech springs and Kenda Bearclaw HTR's and our own custom bed delete with rad relocate. basically no performance enhancing mods! Here are the exact rules!
UTV only Rules:
850 Limited Class
0-850cc Production UTV (Stock, allows for changes to tires, wheels, bumpers and skid plates, air box and exhaust. No suspension or internal motor modifications allowed—no motor modifications besides airbox/filter and exhaust. No ignition or rev limiter changes allowed.) this list explains what you CAN change. If it's not on the list above, you're NOT allowed to change it. A basic guideline: if it makes your machine faster or handle better, or improves suspension, it's not legal in the Limited classes. We do allow pipe and airbox changes, but they provide little performance gain in a UTV. Clutch and ignition changes are NOT allowed, and if your stock UTV had a speed governor or rev limiter built into the black box, you must use it. Yamaha Rhinos that come with reservoir shocks (SE models) are legal, and yes you can put those shocks on a non-SE Rhino and still race the Limited class.
850 Modified Class
0-850cc Production UTV
(Production Rule, must be matching engine/frame combination. Engine and suspension modifications legal) No turbos, Blowers or extreame engine mods
Any motor size, any engine mods or addons, any suspention mods or addons alowed.
Read the link I posted
I figured I didn’t have anything to lose by racing the Heartland. I talked to Gust to get his help driving and we brought down my bone stock Polaris RZR XP 900 and were able to get it done. We really had a great time. This is my first win and it is absolutely huge to earn my first win at such an amazing race,” said UTV owner Andy Bizeck.
What's better is a bone stock 900 won and not a XP1000 Plus Can-am kicked ass Thanks to Hicklin Power Sports. Had the clutch issues not have happened and the tires had stayed on a Mav might have wonWow...very impressed. Congrats to those guys. I don't care what you are driving, the guys in the video were hauling ass! Looks like so much fun....
What am I missing. Why are the Mav's known to be losing wheels? Where is the weakness?I think on UTV UG someone posted the Mav got around the XP1000 but then broken by losing a wheel. Seems to be common problem on the Mav's that are racing.
