    The DXT and XK1000 appear to be very similar. I'd guess the XK1000 would be a bit more stable at speed given it's wheelbase. Do they have different intended purposes? Your site may answer that, but I'm lazy.

    yes, they are similar.

    The XK1000 has a longer wheelbase and can be 60" wide or 70" wide

    at 60" wide the XK1000 may be better in tight trail areas and the longer wheel base may be better for dunes

    the DXT is really our 4th generation Protolite single seat buggy and was originally designed to fit in certain racing specs
