    I can't say for sure if they are still being built, but I would imagine so. They are part of both TORC and the Lucas Oil off road series. They haven't made too many inroads here in Michigan, either.

    They race them in several different series out here. I have seen TK races in 3 different series in the last year.

    i'm surprised they aren't racing them here. maybe if there was a 4x4 version, i guess. i talked to a shop in georgia that sells them and they said they sell quite a few of them... but, i still haven't seen any on the trails. oh well.

    thanks for the input fellas.

    Theres a shop right up the street from my shop that builds them. Problem is there are so many people building them on there own with different names other then TK's. I still feel that they are over priced for what they can do. But then again, most are built to specific standards for race series rather then just a toy.

    to be honest RGV, I feel that they are a bit overpriced as well. I noticed the 450 version is something like 18k... that's steep considering Side by sides are selling for a lot less that have more power, more suspension, etc and can be raced as well. even if over priced... i still think they are the coolest rides.

    While they are expensive, they come ready to race right out of the box. People dump tens of thousands on UTVs to get them up to race standards on top of the purchase price of the base vehicle. My friend's wife claims she had 60K into her Rhino with her ex boyfriend. While she tends to exaggerate on everything, I would assume that 40+K would have been quite possible given their complete lack of ANY mechanical knowledge. TKs also come with some pretty nice parts in standard trim.

    those are good points Fly.. and i honestly don't know what it takes to make a UTV race ready. i was assuming a cage, shocks and harnesses. lol i guess the sky's the limit.
