CORONA, Calif. (August 23, 2016) - Racing 647 miles over silt, sand and rocks requires driving skill, teamwork, and exceptional tires. Racing his #1948 Monster Energy Polaris RZR equipped with STI Chicane RX tires, âMonsterâ Matt Burroughs earned second place in the UTV Pro class and second-place overall among UTV racers at the Vegas to Reno Best In The Desert (BITD) race.

â

âWe basically had two flawless days of racing. Not a single issue. Itâs unbelievable that we raced our 32-inch STI Chicane RX tires over 647 miles of the nastiest rocks and silt imaginable, and not a single flat tire. Thatâs right, not a single flat tire. Simply remarkable!â

Burroughs and co-driver Dan Lewis pushed early in day 1 of the two-day event through mostly sand and silt racing conditions. After the 4.5-hour race day, they held second place in the UTV Pro class. For day 2, the course covered rocky terrain on its way to Reno, Nev. With just over 7 hours of racing for day 2, Burroughs and the Monster team completed a grueling Vegas to Reno race with no flat tires or car troubles.

With his second-place finish in this BITD race, Burroughs now holds second-place overall in the UTV Pro class for the 2016 season points battle.

Congratulations to Burroughs, Lewis and the Monster Energy team for their second-place finish in the Best In The Desert Vegas to Reno race. STI-supported drivers Jonathan McVay (1952) finished 9th in the UTV Pro class, and Matt Hughes finished 10th, also running Chicane RX tires. The class had more than 30 racer entries.

      2016 Cub Cadet Challenger 700 has a hitch receiver that requires a vertical pin as opposed to a horizontal pin to attach hitches.  I'm looking for an 18" hitch entender that will attach using a vertical pin and then accept a horizontal pin for a trailer hitch.  I've looked everywhere.  Any ideas on where to find one?  TIA

      Hello,
      First time buggy/UTV buyer here and I have been looking at a 2016 Joyner Sand Viper 1100cc.  
      First of all, and overall comments on that particular model or recommendations?  I am a very amateur rider and am just looking to have some occasional fun in the surrounding desert areas of Vegas as well as do some low key canyons and small mountain areas.
      Main question is, what are the options to tow the buggy aside from trailering it?  I have been looking into a tow bar but am finding very limited information on anyone installing a way to connect a tow bar to the rig and tow it that way.  Any insights are greatly appreciated!

      We have been having all kinds of fuel issues with this ranger.  When you try to start it when it is cold outside, it does not want to start.  It will crank over fine but doesn't start but if you stop and come back 10 minutes later or so, it will start up.  But even then, it is idling real bad.  Usually will die a few times before you can get going, really have to feather the gas pedal to keep it alive.  Once it gets warmed up, it does start better but something still not right.  Even when it is warm outside, it will start up but just doesn't idle right.
      I bought a fuel pump kit, not the whole assembly, just the pump and replaced that and the same thing happens.  I am in the process of trying to check the fuel pressure on it but the fuel pressure gauge I got from our local auto parts store seems to be defective.  Had it hooked up and can't get the gauge to show any pressure at all yet it will still start up.   If it does have the correct pressure, what would be the next place to start looking at?  If it doesn't have correct pressure, is there something else on the assembly that would cause low pressure?  We checked the voltage on the connecter and one gets 12 volts for just a few seconds and the other one gets 4.9 volts.  The other 2 show nothing.  I am guessing the one with 4.9 volts is for the fuel gauge sender and the one that has 12 volts is the pump.   When you take the fuel line off on the engine side and turn the key on, how far should it throw fuel out?  
      We have taken it to 2 shops and neither one was able to do anything with it, one said there was nothing wrong.  Not sure if they really did any checking or what or they just don't know what to do with it.  
      Would the whole fuel pump assembly out of a ranger 570 work with the ranger 800?  Would I be able to swap them without any issues?  To buy a whole new assembly, it's around $400, don't really want to spend that much not knowing if it will fix it or not.
