The Rally on the Rocks Crew does a shootout between the Arctic Cat Wildcat, Polaris XP and the Can-Am Maverick at Sand Hollow in St. George Utah.
We love all side by sides and have no bias. All tires had 9 lbs of pressure. All machines are stock except the wildcat (it has the wildcat willys clutch kit and bighorn 2.0's). They are all great machines and you couldn't go wrong with any of them. They all have plusses and minuses.
Part 2 is coming with sand hill drags and suspension shots.

What a fun day! It was great to have the chance to drive these cars. Makes me want one... which one? I don't know. Love the tone and the power of the Maverick - but hate the visco lock front diff, the suspension on Cat - hate the wet clutch, familiarity of the Polaris - hate their customer service/warranty. The next few months could be interesting - Wilcat X, maybe a new offering from Polaris.
