SXSBlog started a journey to revive one of its oldest rigs, a Can-Am Maverick X3 RS Turbo RR that years ago had been modified with a nitrous bottle. The resulting build, dubbed the NX3, promised to be absolutely bananas, and it delivered.

The revival involved an engine rebuild, and some turbo mods that have the thing pushing a cool 400 ponies. Not only is it fast as hell, it is also the coolest sounding Can-Am we have ever heard.

But this wouldn’t be SXSBlog without a bunch of jumps, wide-open throttle pulls, cyclones, and a wreck. The video delivers all of that, from a marauding Polaris Pro R to the NX3′s inevitable dirt nap, aided by rutted-out Michigan snow and the excitement of the first ride with new parts. Check out the video, the sounds alone are worth your time.
