    RCV Performance has been proud to be involved in King of the Hammers since the beginning.  Over the years the progression of the industry has demanded more and more product that can handle the abuse of the “toughest 1-day race in the world”, and we have been there every step of the way providing the best solutions possible.  When the UTV race was introduced, we saw another need and began to develop what we feel is the Strongest Axle on the Planet.

  2. RCV PRO SERIES XRB LIMITED LIFETIME WARRANTY AXLES FOR POLARIS DESIGNED FOR “XTREME” ROCK BOUNCERS

     RCV Performance Products introducing the new “Pro Series XRB” axle for the Polaris RZR XP Turbo.  The new axles feature a plunging inboard and outboard CV, taking every opportunity to improve and maximize strength and longevity.  The CVs are constructed with premium aircraft grade components such as the race and cage.  The front axle is our Pro Series 33 spline shaft, which is second only to our rear 40 spline shaft – by far the largest axle diameter in the industry.  The rear CVs have been increased in size comparable to a Dana 44 CV (full size truck) to take advantage of additional room at the hub.

    These axles are designed for harsh hill climb or “rock bouncing” racing conditions where shock load and impacts are significant.  The specially engineered RCV grease is featured in both the inboard and outboard CVs to battle these extreme conditions.

    The XRB axle will be the first axle in the UTV line to offer a limited LIFETIME warranty.

  5. INTRODUCING RCV CARBON FIBER CV PROP SHAFT FOR POLARIS RZR 2-SEAT & 4-SEAT MODELS

    RCV Performance Products is introducing the all-new CARBON FIBER prop shaft to our UTV line featuring specially designed CVs. The carbon fiber design with hard-coated 7075 aluminum end yokes is HALF the weight of OEM, reducing rotational mass, increases acceleration, and reduces any possibility of vibration. Additionally, the dampening effect of carbon fiber will reduce shock load and stress on other components such as transmission and front differential. The heavier steel tube will see deflection at high-RPM critical speed, the low mass and high rigidity of carbon fiber reaches a critical speed much higher than any UTV is capable of.  The RCV CV design is unmatched in smoothness and strength over any u-joint prop shaft.  The new RCV prop shaft features 300M CV components that ensure maximum strength.  Prop shaft and components are completely sealed and rebuildable.

    Available for 2-seat and 4-seat Polaris RZR models. For 2-seat models, prop shafts are a 1-piece design, and a
