Gas. This isn’t true. SxS have always been limited.

ok sorry for the confusion. I wonder what RG meant when he mentioned something about a new speed limit in that pod.

I read the rule. It has no specific verbiage about that limit applying based on which class you're racing in. There's a similar regulation for trucks but you're not going to find a workshop on wheels competing in the car class.

I would have interpreted that as only applying to the SxS class.
Either way I'm sure the ASO has reworded it so it applies to SxS's in the car class now.....convenient
T3P12 SPEED LIMIT
Any Pro UTV and Pro UTV Forced Induction vehicle in conformity to the Score Regulation, will have a limited speed of 130km/h, having a tolerance of up to 135km/h maximum during a maximum time of one minute per hour.

Has 346 Potts made it in yet?

Cole is overdue.

Speed limit...this just makes me wonder how the hell anybody can even bother running .....I know it is all a "Surprise you're screwed" thing I guess ......But just put a spike in me you know?

They have always been afraid of Robby every sence he showed up with the hummer. don’t forget factory millions are spent for a trophy. Under dog stoies aren’t good for the factory effort.still laying ground work for textron and the future.lets be the best sxs in the Dakar and work on the rules for next year long way to go yet

Ps what is the age limit for sxs class... max

All DAKAR competitors -18yo min.

Oh boy, here I come back to the DAKAR only to read of more potential drama this year.Please tell me they arent playing David vs Goliath again.

so what class is he actually competing with? SxS? its not cars thats for sure with a speed limit?
