    I just preordered my 2021 x3 turbo r and now I’m starting to regret it! Pretty much gotta add another 10k in parts! What machine is great out of the box? Mind you this is my first sxs and I’ve never driven one. So all is new to me. Any info would be greatly appreciated

    Just listening to all the things you have to do to a X3 makes me think BRP just makes junk....Seems like it would be relatively easy and inexpensive for Can Am to beef up the front end and double shear connection points.....why would they have to 'vet' something that is not only a quality control item but also a safety item? Doesn't make business sense....

    I know this was a while ago but just got my 2021 X3 XD S Turbo RR. Reliable info, other than you awesome guys, is hard to come by. The bulkhead you sell, will that take a Warn Axon 45 winch?

    To bad you have to pay big money buying the x3 then rebuild it. X3 should have never been made with single sheer parts. Those parts cost half what the x3 cost, ggg.

    So I don’t really see a list??? And some of the stuff mentioned quickly is Greek? I have a new 2021 can am dx turbo, and would like the beef up 2000.00 kit, mostly off road adventure park/trail riding. Is there a kit to include everything, or would we have to figure out how to order everything separately?? Justin mentioned a front bulkhead double shear kit, but can’t find this anywhere? Thanks, new and learning!

    Great so a 30k$ unit only needs 5k worth of reinforcements and re-engineering to the whole front end to be not a pile of junk !! Aren’t these chassis extremely weak even after the gusset kits are done?? I hear stories about cracks all over the chassis the tubing is about the thickness of exhaust tubing seriously wtf should I get rid of mine and get a xp turbo S rzr Emphasis on the S!! ????

    I'm going to do the Bulkhead gusset kit this winter. I think the CT race worx has a gusset on the top that TMW does not. Is this any better or needed? I've narrowed it down between these two.

      @Shock Therapy llc Thanks for the quick response. I appreciate your input. I really enjoy our video's also!

    • Shock Therapy llc

      I would suggest the TMW kit strictly from the standpoint of structure and frame mounting. I have a lot of cars pre run the 1000 race course with us with the TMW kit and zero issues. This is a pretty high barometer for real world longevity.

    Hi Justin I just picked up a 2021 x3 Mx RR . Do you think they still need the basic upgrades to keep it from breaking down? I’m not racing just playing in the desert and dunes

    • Shock Therapy llc
      Shock Therapy llc

      Yes sir. They still need them. They have not upgraded the weak spot yet in the 21’s

    Why would CanAm make everything single shear? That’s so lazy and cheap.

  • Oo Oooo

    I got a question on your x3 do you weld any of the brackets you mention? Or you just bolt them on?

    • Shock Therapy llc
      Shock Therapy llc

      We weld most of them on our car. But it isn’t needed on most play cars. Only on the race side of things.

      Well thanks for making me go buy an x3! My business is coming your way. Throughly enjoy the excellent source of info. I don’t recall many in last few years, or any at all, sources of info that I watched numerous times. I’m an east coast guy by the way. #bullyback

    • Shock Therapy llc
      Shock Therapy llc

      @Jaron Jaggers We are actually doing that but we don't make much. Other than shock work we have a BSD tie rod kit and TLS rear hub kit. Maybe Radius rods too. Those are going to pop up together if you choose one on the site soon. The rest of the frame stuff we will leave to others. Thank you very much for the recommendation. Really appreciate it!

    • Jaron Jaggers
      Jaron Jaggers

      I mean of the parts that are currently on your site.

    • Shock Therapy llc
      Shock Therapy llc

      you are correct. But that would piss off all of the shops that we do work for. Also, we are not in the business of building these parts and prefer to let others do it. Makes a lot of sense and we certainly can do it but we should not do it and just concentrate on one thing, shocks.

    What do you think about the XMX Radius Rod Nut Plates which mount behind the thin metal where the radius rods mount? I'm surprised this wasn't mentioned. I know the TMW is double sheer radius rod plate but it's still only being supported by that thin piece of metal which most likely has oblonged holes. The XMX would make it double sheer even with just a regular radius rod plate right? Seems like the better choice.

      You get what you pay for or, sometimes not. I bought the more expensive Lonestar solution to the center rear radius arm issue and was not able to fit it to my car due to tolerance stack up issues. So it sets on my work bench as a reminder of a bad investment. In the mean time I'm monitoring my machine, a 2018 XRC with 3500+ miles, and will jump on the Shock Therapy solution at the first sign of an issue.

    Are these the same weak points with the RC as well, or are a lot of these things beefed up in that model which you’d obviously think would/should be for the price?

    Ouch, poor Chase! Do you install gusset kits etc when people bring cars in for suspension work? Also the RC has a front "bulkhead" installed with the factory winch isn't this doubled sheared as a result?

    • Gearhead Grind
      Gearhead Grind

      The RC's are an exception as they are double sheer as a result. But they still rely on the front control arm bolts as mounting points. Any good bulkhead kit will also have bolts to tie it to the front of the frame itself. So for myself, I have a 2020 RC and run a front gusset kit and bulkhead in between the frame and the front winch plate.

  • Tristan Hipps

    im not shocked that the x3 has so many weak points. their snowmobiles are notorious for the bulk heads caving in or bending tunnels. thats a total loss for the sled when it happens.

  • Heily -

    I understand production cars can’t have everything on them but the double shear seems like common sense and it wouldn’t cost that much more to manufacture them I don’t get it?

    Hi guys / Justin. Firstly thank you for the modification information. I really appreciate the professionalism you and your crew portray other than one (ahem) I won't name names. (-: Question: I have been searching for a list of all of the mod items you spoke of to no avail. Have not been able to find one. Am I just being a dork not looking in the right place or is there no list? Thanks, keep up the GREAT informational videos.

    • Shock Therapy llc
      Shock Therapy llc

      Not sure if there is a list anywhere. Other than this video we have not made one. But, bulkhead and double sheer supports and shock tower braces are TMW, Geiser and S3. Radius rods are all over. TLS kit is us. Frame weld in supports are TMW. That is the short list. Hope that helps.

    Your insight and un-biased videos are great. Unfortunately I have a stack of stock lower A-arms for my X-RC that keep piling up. I called CT Race Worx and asked them what fails? (Lowers, sway bar links and radius rods) Added their lower a-arms (lifetime warranty) and haven’t broke or bent it yet. We love your suspension set up and we also added the toe link bushings.

    Do you think in 2021 Can Am, or Polaris will do a DCT like the Honda Talon? With the power these units are getting to, I would think they would need to move away from the BELT.

    • Wee Man
      Wee Man

      Heily - that’s why I am asking, I have been holding off on another SXS to see if this will happen. Right now it’s a toss up for me between the Polaris, Kawasaki, and Can Am. I am a big and tall type of guy so Honda just didn’t fit me, I guess 6’5” and 290 isn’t a good combo. The Kawasaki I really liked but WAY TO LITTLE POWER, have owned the X3 max so I know I like the can am just seating style I am not totally a fan of.

    Where would the RIS (with internal valving and spring kit) fall in place on this list for a 2017 X3 XDS? Or are the stock shocks good enough that it’s not on this list? Thanks in advance and great video!

    • Jarrett Voyzey
      Jarrett Voyzey

      Shock Therapy llc haha true true, makes sense from that standpoint. Trying to budget stuff out so this list should definitely come before any “fun” stuff lol. Thanks for the quick reply!

    • Shock Therapy llc
      Shock Therapy llc

      This is a list to help with parts that wear out or give you short trips. The shocks are not one of those. But the RIS and spring will make it way more fun to drive and you may drive much faster which in turn will wear out more parts. So, they are a contributor to the parts list I mentioned. LOL

      101rotarypower

      @Shock Therapy llc That is a poorly addressed issue on stock X3s from reading many others feedback, There seems to be confusion and little consensus what helps cure poor brake feel. Would love to see this topic covered in detail by people that can confidently explain and detail where the issues are and why, and what is required to solve it for the vast majority of common users.
