Yes.....I liked my Brute a lot....they are competitive on dry ground with most Can-Ams....but in the pits...its a different world. The Outty's are just to tough and fast under ground...! I put a LOT of thought into it before I traded...even with an AMR kit it would be hard to compete...not motor wise but the Can-Am's are made better for racing IMO....and I hate to say that...lol As far as over all bike....the KQ's are made better than a Brute....just don't have the power though.good looking bike, id still rather have my brute though. are you going to start running in a single cyl class??
