CT Race Worx Billet Radius Rod Pull Plate for Maverick X3
We’ve taken 2 different grades of aluminum to create the nicest and strongest billet aluminum tow ring ever put on a UTV!
The base plate starts out as a piece of 1.25″ thick 6061 T6 aluminum.
When machining is done it is still 1.25″ at the thickest point and the majority of the way through the plate for maximum strength and rigidity.
Next we machine the tow ring from a piece of 1.25″ thick 7075 T6 aluminum which is roughly twice the strength of 6061 aluminum. We choose this material because of the tow ring is going to see the most of the stress and we need the thread strength.
The tow ring recesses into the face of the plate and is pressed into place, the 1/2″ bolts come in from the back side and have 1.5″ of thread engagement into the ring adding strength to the assembly.
During production these plates will be anodized black, as well as the tow point, and then machined again in certain areas to give them a look so nice you can hang it on the wall.

Add-On Race Plates:
These radius rod plates will give you the ability to remove one radius rod at a time without having to remove the radius rod plate. This has several advantages, no studs to break, stronger bolts replacing the studs, ability to remove one rod at a time, and changing an axle just got faster.
Since the factory stud setup uses a nylock nut for the locking setup we knew we would not be able to incorporate a locking not into this design. The solution was a Nordlock washer on the bolts. This will keep the bolts from backing out and holding torque without having to use locktight. Our weld nuts are made and machined in house from 4130 chomoly with a form tap.
This kit comes with a template to drill the holes for the mounting hardware of the plates. A 1/8″ pilot gets drilled first and then that hole gets opened up from 1/8″ to roughly 1/4″ or slightly larger hole. Everything needed is supplied except for the drill bits.
