Hey people, need some advice/information, what is best 500 cc ATV for MUD racing? I would like to build one for my son. He loves the mud, has never seen a mud hole he did not like. He recently has gotten himself into some trouble. If he succeeds in his rehabilitation, I would like to reward him with a MUD Racer. cheers So give me your personal experience, observations and racing stats.

The Suzuki Vinson in the 500 class if you can find one....They quite making them about 2 years ago. If not the Can-Am 500 V-Twin is a Monster for 500....but there expensive as crap though. I would try to find a Vinson if it was me...

Is there any other sizes??? or the 500 it??? For example how about 450 or something like that.

THe Vinson is the easiest to Mod and snorkel

King Quad 450 or the King Quad 500 it's a new one if it's out yet. The Can-am's are dominating right now though, Look at the renegade 500 efi too.

I would eighter look at the Vinson 500 or KQ 450....if your wanting to buy new....the Polaris 550 is On top in that class.

With the new Single cylinder class the Can-Am 500 V-twin is moreless out of the running now...It has to run with the 700's an so on.. Shocked

Want to buy something used, he can keep his Honda for regualr riding. Hope getting into racing get him away from some bad influence. Good boy sometimes a little miss-guided.

I think the Polaris 500 HO and the Can-Am 500 are two of the best 500cc mud quads. The Suzuki Vinson is good, but I don't think its better than the Polaris or Can-Am.. If I can get off i'll be running my Sportsman 500 HO at Pikeville on July 11th..

In most races anymore there is a single cylinder class. The 500 Can-Am can't run in it....so its kinda pf obsolete....It has to run with the BIG V-Twins. You can make a monster out of the Vinson There is a guy who races one on Team Bad Company who cleans house with his.

Yeah...I know who your talking about with that monster Vinson TBC. I think i've seen it on High Lifter and in Dirt Wheels Mag.. I do think a well built Sportsman 500 HO will give it a run for its money in the pit.

The AC 500M can be very competitive in the bogger class. Built right they will really get it. They have the same motor as the Vinson with independent suspension. And you should be able to get one fairly cheap cause everyone is going to the autos.
