Kaden DanburyTEAM: Team SuperATV AGE: 9 YEARS RACING: 3 Kaden Danbury has been racing SXS’s competitively for (3) years. With over (51) races, (2) Championships, and (40) podiums through May of 2017, Kaden has become one of the most consistent youth drivers to hit the winner's box for the Youth SXS’s classes. Kaden Danbury is 9 years old and is currently racing (2) Polaris RZR 170’s this season. He currently has a 2015 Polaris RZR 170 that runs in the 250 SXS Production/ Modified Class at World Offroad Championship Series (WORCS) and Best In The Desert (BITD) and 2012 Polaris RZR 170 in the Open 200 Production class at Dirt Series. Kaden’s racing takes a team of dedicated people to make it happen. Danbury Racing consists of his Mom, Sarah and Dad, Dustin Danbury along with his extended race family that gets his (2) SXS’s prepped and dialed in for every race. Kaden is dedicated to off-roading on and off the track. When he is not racing or prepping his RZR’s, Team Danbury Racing is spending their weekends in Ocotillo Wells, CA camping and driving through the desert. In Kaden’s spare time he trains in his SXS’s as well as in carts with WORCS Pro SXS driver, Shelby Anderson at Shelby Anderson Racing Academy to sharpen his skills. We look forward to his race future. Kaden Danbury/ Danbury Racing has been fortunate enough to have been with Team SuperATV since August of 2015 and hopes for many more years to come!

Chances are, you have some idea about what the ECU on your vehicle is and what tuning your ECU does. But the true complexity of what is happening in your ECU before and after a tune may have eluded you. If you want to know more about what they do and how we tweak them to get the very best performance (we won't tell you everything. We've got to keep some secrets, right?), feel free to read on and enlighten yourself.
Do you think your side-by-side is powerful already? Why don't you try taking the limits off your machine with our Handheld ECU Tuner and seeing what your machine is really capable of?
We took our 3rd trip to Sand Hollow, Utah earlier this year. This ride is one for the history books. We had more carnage in this one trip than any of our other trips combined. I know that sounds horrible but let’s put something out there. We are constantly building our machines to become better, stronger, trying to always take them to the next level, and by doing so we are pushing them to their limits of what they can handle, and what they can achieve, hell even what we as drivers are capable of. Rolling over is inevitable with the kind of riding we do. We build our machines to use them, not to sit on a trailer. We spent 3 epic days riding sand dunes, washes, and the one aspect we crave, rock crawling. This was the 1st ride I used my new drone and was really happy with the footage we were able to capture. Anytime I can give a new perspective of this sport, I will jump at the opportunity. The drone has done just that. This was also our first trip out running our SuperATV 4″ Portal Gear Lifts, and you want the honest truth, here it is. I will never own another RZR without portals. We didn’t break one factory axle, or burn up one factory belt. For us that is very very rare. The 30% gear reduction relieved so much stress throughout the whole drive train. Oh and by the way we are running 34″ tires! The added ground clearance made typical obstacles easier and allowed us to stretch outside our comfort zone and try harder and more difficult obstacles. A big concern was what were we going to lose off the top end and that concern was quickly put to rest when I still hit 65 mph with ease. I am running a 2015 XP1000 and it pulls harder off the line than a new stock turbo. That is no exaggeration. These portals are designed and built so well. We have not had a single issue up to this point, and we will keep you posted if we do. Thank you for reading and as always reach out to us with any questions! Check out the video and see for yourself!
