The Wildcat XX’s DNA is from racing so its early arrival on the podium over higher-powered turbo vehicles is no surprise. Designed in collaboration with off-road racing legend Robby Gordon, the Wildcat XX shined in the varying terrain of the Sand Hollow track due to its race-inspired suspension. Its 125-horsepower engine had plenty of power on tap to muscle through the sand and rough sections with ease.
