During the Morocco Desert Challenge the Can-Am Maverick X3 had to endure a lot of dust, high temperatures, heavy impacts, and dirt. All parts had to perform perfectly without hesitation because Herman and Marnix had to depend on their equipment for 100% during this challenge. That’s why the best ‘ingredients’ were chosen to help push the Maverick to its limits.
The engine of the Maverick is running on an oil especially engineered to perform in a race: the Apollo R SAE 10W/60 Engine Oil. The gasoline in Morocco has a lower octane number so therefore the Octane Booster was used to provide the perfect mix for the engine.
For the transmission the Atexio CVT Full Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid CVT is used and the limited slip differential of the Maverick contains the Gevitro GL-5 FS LS Full Synthetic Limited Slip Gear Oil. For the brakes the Vector R Dot 4+ Racing Brake Fluid is used. Especially in the desert it is important to cool the engine in which the Dione G-12+ Ready to Use Long Life Engine Coolant plays an important role.
