where can I find chat?

Barreda leading now at WP1
A lot of Polaris / Can Ams in the Car Class
What are it's strong and weak points?
RG car is based on the Textron WildcatXX. It's a side by side
Should be really good in the dunes but may not have the top speed the other cars have.
Good thing a lot of sand then this year.
Is the SxS class still limited to 80mph? I am sure the Textron is capable of going over, but there is a class limitation.
So he is not in the car class this year but in the sms class?
Cars are off!!!!Sainz Nasser DeVilliers are off
