    Default So who do you think was faster at the Baja 500?

    All of the following were class winners at the 2013 Baja 500, lets see if you can guess how they stack up against each other on overall time / average speed. You can check the results but would be cool if you can at least take a shot at the top three before you peek The choices are as follows and your guess can be something like what mine would probably have been : A C D E B !

    A. Lexus 5.7L - Stock Full Class (stock full sized trucks) - Joe Becal
    So who do you think was faster at the Baja 500? -1225840

    B. VW Beetle 1.6L - Class 5-1600 (open wheel limited Baja Bugs) - Clyde Stacey
    So who do you think was faster at the Baja 500? -1225841

    C. Ford Bronco - Class 3 (SWB 4x4s)- Donald Moss
    So who do you think was faster at the Baja 500? -1225842

    D. Buggy - Class 5 (Unlimited Baja Bugs) - Cody Kellog
    So who do you think was faster at the Baja 500? -1225843

    E. Polaris - Limited UTV Class (Freaking Golf Karts) - Matt Parks
    So who do you think was faster at the Baja 500? -1225844

    Wow no takers even for the Lexus! I guess as long as something does not say "Toyota" or the "LandCruiser" it does not evoke the same feelings amongst the die hard fans Or maybe its that people suspect some fishy business here! Anyhow Joe Becal is a pro and has done the Lexus guys proud over the years wining the stock class at Baja 1000 and 500...

    I don't know much about these things, except that they are not only fast, they are much faster than what one would think!
    So who do you think was faster at the Baja 500? - 2013 baja 500 utv race utvundergroundcom044

    Not surprising given the amount of travel and the light weight, though in real life in desert racing trim they are bigger than they seem on the screen >

    Some UTV Pro Calss rules : you must run with the same engine that came in the UTV, it must retain the lower frame rails, must retain the stock a-arm pick up points, only one shock per corner, must have the same style transmission (eg CVT) that came with the UTV, etc. There are also rules on tire O.D., max width, max amount the chassis can be stretched, and you must run with two occupants in the vehicle at all times.

    Default The Results !

    I am sure that these times are not directly comparable between classes, but as a general trend I don;t think they are very unrepresentative either!

    So who do you think was faster at the Baja 500? -1232555

    Any surprises ???!!! The LX reportedly wasn't running too well but nevertheless them gold karts and buggies are fast!!
