I just read that Robby Gordon won the season opener in Laughlin. I have watched him race alot. Alot of people think he runs wide open all the time. This is not true, he is very steady on the throtle, you can tell he is coming from along distance away because there is not alot of changing in engine RPM. When you are taking your foot of the throtle and stabing it back on it really upseats your suspension, Just like braking as you you hit a bump or ditch, you compress your susp by hiting the brakes witch takes away from your susp abibility to absorb the bump. Robby is crazy and he deffentely has a attitude, but i sappose you have to, to be as a aggresive as he is with his driving style. In San Falipe about 10 years ago they clocked him at 154 mph on a dirt road, he is a very Talented driver. Just so i can brag they clocked me 148 in the same race. Anyway some of this applys with the troopers in that they do better when you are steady on the throtle, You will find your ride alot smother not hitting the brakes as you are about to hit a bump.

      Hello everyone. I’m looking into getting a UTV to mainly use at the hunting lease. Need to be able to haul around gear and decoys and at least one dog kennel. Would also like to use occasionally around the neighborhood (Golf carts and UTVs are allowed in my area). I know I want a 4x4 and don’t necessarily need something that’s gonna go 40-50 mph.  I’m an engineer and enjoy maintaining all me vehicles/ toys so I can give something a once over and notice any glaring defect but I have a few UTV questions  
      Is there anything I should watch out for? Any specific questions I need to ask the seller? How many hour/ miles is too many? I want something used but not used up. Anyone feel their UTV has been underpowered- should I get at least a YYY cc engine?
      Theres a 2014 Kawasaki Mule 4x4 XC with a nice 5x10 trailer for sale that I’ve been eyeing, anyone have good/bad comments about this particular vehicle?
      Thanks!!

      Anaheim, Calif. - September 22, 2016 - GBC Motorsports racers turned out in force at Round 9 of the WORCS Racing Series at Glen Helen Raceway. GBC sponsored athletes collectively earned 7 class wins and continued their march towards 2016 class championships.
      Leading the way for GBC Motorsports in the ATV classes was Brian Sirevaag. After missing three rounds in the middle of the season, Sirevaag made his return to WORCS Racing with a victory in the Open A class. He sits in 2nd place in the standings, just 7 points behind the leader with one round remaining.
      Jolene Crouse added a class win for GBC, taking the checkers in the Women B class. Crouse has kept it close in the points standings and is just 2 points behind the leader heading into the final race. Joseph Semas added a 3rd place podium finish in the Sport 15-29A class, while Hector Urias finished 7th in the 40+ class.

      The Romo family was victorious again at Glen Helen WORCS, earning 3 wins and 3rd place finish. The SXS races were competitive at Glen Helen, and once again the Romo Family of Randy, Sierra and Claudia Romo made a statement with 3 class wins between them. Randy topped both the SXS 1000 and SXS 1000 Stock classes, while Sierra earned her third straight victory in the SXS Womens class. Claudia Romo joined Sierra on the SXS Womens podium with a 3rd place finish. Randy is in good position to take the SXS 1000 class championship and fellow GBC Motorsports driver Shelby Anderson has virtually clinched the SXS 1000 Stock championship despite finishing 12th at Glen Helen. Sierra holds a steady lead in the SXS Womens class with fellow GBC driver Danielle Weatherly close behind following a 2nd place performance in Round 9.

      The Romo family relies on their GBC Dirt Commanders to negotiate the WORCS courses. Ryan Holz led GBC racers in the SXS Pro class with a 3rd place podium spot and finished 4th in the SXS Pro Unlimited class as well. Mickey Thomas holds the SXS Pro class lead after finishing 7th at Glen Helen. GBC Motorsports racers put in solid performances in the SXS Pro Stock class, with Blake Barnum finishing 4th, Sierra Romo rounding out the top 5, Nic Granlund in the 6th spot, and Tyson Leaver following in 8th.
