Its not secret the Outlander is a great machine, but there is one aspect of the machine that some people do not like, and
that is the traction system, more specifically the visco lok. For 2008 Can Am listen and made the Visco Lok engage more
quickly. Dee, contacted me and said Hey, Man I have a 2008 Outlander 800EFI MAX I am willing to test it out. So I took
my 2006 Outlander and we compared the two visco lok systems. Come on in, and find out the results, and discuss the
review on our new forum.
This review is part of a larger review we are doing on traction systems. This review compared the Polaris vs Can Am
traction system, so come on in, and find out how each system measured up. Then come on over to the forum to discuss
the results.

Be sure to check out the Crutchfield Shock Test Review we put it through the paces. The review was done with
the Outlander 800, but Ed, from Crutchfield has shocks for nearly every machine. Crutchfield Racing is one of our
feature companies so this review is offered as a
free review right here on this site, free of charge.
I took quite a bit of time to make sure this review was done right. There are alot of changes from the Grizz 660 to
the Grizz 700, and there are some major things you need to know about this machine that you will find no where
else, and its delivered in the un-bias manner you know I always deliver it in. Some of the major topics I covered
fuel mileage, stability, mud riding, trail riding, power steering, storage lighting, hill climbs, power/speed, traction
system, suspension, plus much, much, more... After you read this review then come join us on our Magazine
forum to discuss this review further. The next review will be the 1,000mile review.
This is a review for you if you are trying to decide which machine to buy. I cover everything from Cvt intakes,
suspension, steering, power/speed, stability, traction system, EBS, storage, lighting, CVT system, brakes, and
much, much, more. You can count on having a fair and balanced review so that it is easier for you to make a
decision which machine is best for you.
Back by popular demand its bigger and better with photos and videos, its the After Action Ride Reports. After
every ride I will post a ride report reporting on every single little detail of that ride. Such as; machine performance,
machine issues, park evaluation, product performance, you name it I ll cover it. Keep in mind this is where I come
up with 90% of the content for the magazine, its out riding in every day terrain, and reporting on what takes place.
I am excited about bringing this back, since it provides for interesing reading, and is pack with informative content
that you will find in later in-depth reviews. Read other members ride reports on our fourm also.
Well here it is everyone has been asking for is the new 2008 King Quad 750EFI worth buying over the previous
King Quad models, well this review will answer it. I discuss everything from the filter, caster, low end lag, and
other refinements. I have an exclusive review from Mark who has logged in well over 2,000 miles on his KQ
700EFI, in Moab and the Paiute. I have also put together a 5 minute video showing the accerlation, drag racing,
and steering and handling of the KQ 750EFI, as well as a few other things. I also give my overall opinion of the
two, and where the new King Quad stands. Come on in and check it out.
This is by far the best tire review I have compiled to date. We have four editors who have written outstanding
reviews, with a combine mileage of over 10,000 miles on these tires you will not find a better review on these two
tires than this review. On top of that J and myself produced a 10min video of each tire in action, so you are getting
20 minutes of combine riding action, and watching these tires in action. Listen, these two tires are the top trail tires
for rocks, hard pack surfaces, and off camber/technical riding. This is a must see review.
Starting for 2008 this will become a yearly event in which I pick atvs of their respective classes, and the overall atv
of the year. These picks will be released January 1st of each year. These picks of course are not influence by big
corporate manufactures, or bias reporting. Just the facts, in a fair and un-bias manner.
So come on inside and see
which quads are the winners.
Well I am finally done with this review and it covers everything from snakes, to un-known riding areas with GPS maps,
what to look out for, places to stay, etc... It covers everything, and we are always finding out new areas to ride up there.

It must be noted since writing this review several of these trail have been closed such as Shin Bone, Caney Creek,

Here it is the 2008 Brute Force 750EFI review. I cover everything from trail riding, mud riding, off
camber/technical, hill climbs, racing, and misc things. Well over 500 miles on this machine I am confident in this
review, and will follow up with a 1,000 mile. Now that the stock review is done, I will be working on the Project
Trail Demon Review, in which I am slowly turning this machine into an aggressive trail riding machine, I am about
half way in this transformation. Lastly, there will be more reviews with this Brute going head to head agains the
other top dogs. Remember this is one of the most honest reviews you will receive, and it has been tested in nearly
all Real World settings.

In an effort to bring the
most options to their
customers Pit Bull will
eventually be offering a
less expensive version of
the Growler in the
26x9or11x12 size that is
made China. They will
continue to make their
USA made tires, but will
be offering these tires as
an option. I have a set of
these tires and will begin
testing to see how they
stand up against made in
the USA counterpart.
Stay tune for more details!
