Can-Am Vs. Polaris - Officially Equal?

George I wasn't knocking you, Legacy just cant get over your infamous incident and thinks thats all everyone is doing out there. It might not have came across that way and I apologize if it offended you. I think you're a good guy and I know you have given back to the sport and think its awesome.

And I disagree about it not being the best driver. A good driver is fast AND doesn't tear up the car.

If you look at the results in all the bigger racing series across the country, we are seeing the tide starting to shift to an even match. This makes it more exciting for us race fans as on any given weekend someone new could be winning. By next season I do think the Wildcat XX will be making a good showing in the races and should be a contender in the n/a classes in the desert.

The beauty of desert racing or even short course racing is for the average person they see what the racers are using as far as aftermarket parts and can determine if that particular product is worth buying. Nothing worse than paying a good chunk of change for an over priced item that does nothing for overall reliability or longevity.

The reality is it does not matter if a car is stock or fully modified, people will buy that brand because they want to be associated with a winning product.

I was referring to Legacy. For the record, I'm not a poster boy for any particular agenda I say whats on my mind but that can change......ask anyone who's bumper I've left paint on. That said the truth is usually somewhere in the middle of extreme points of view. Never and Always are both usually wrong. I'll agree with your definition of fast....I wasn't offended at all you gotta have a thick skin in this sport....:)
 
This should add some fuel to the debate...
