Should the X-18 buggy be allowed to race the UTV class?

Why is Whiplash allowing this buggy to race with UTVs? I pit for one of the UTV teams and find this absurd. This buggy has a 2.2L engine in it! Whiplash rules clearly state that there is a 1000cc limit. For those that dunt have an egucatune that is 2200cc's. I have heard some nonsense spewed about the transmission only allows it to do 70mph which I seriously doubt, but so what. That is irrelevant. Have you seen how fast this thing is? It has 170hp. Whiplash needs to put that thing in a class it belongs in which is with the rest of the trucks/buggies. I'm also not sure why the owner of this buggy would want to race UTVs. I would be embarassed if I took a podium spot in this. Actually no I wouldn't, because I would not enter it in this CLASS!

Looks like a fun little car. Pretty good looking to. But if they let that car race,Then I should be able to race my rhino when It's finished.

Thanks to all the hard work from Todd at www.151fab.com for building my rhino!

Interesting first post HunterDude, Welcome to the site!

The centrifugal clutch is the deciding component at some races, . Has a simular training to the UTV with the Belt drive.

It is a totally different animal, I will stick with the Rhino!
