Well I raced a friend with a built raptor 700 big bore, cam, and tuned

I knew out the gate I wasn't going to win but I was going to make him earn it lol

Oh by the way my 700xx is stock except uni filter,13T sprocket, and razr tires

Wow, you did really well! My friends raptor has 15t sprocket, barker duals, power programmer III, high comp piston, stage 2 hot cam and intake. He still has me by 2-3 from a roll even with my big 3 installed. I should race him from a stand still. I have way better traction, before my big 3 install I would take him out of the hole and he'd have to play catch up.

Traction was the main reason he wasn't three or four lengths on me but all in all I was really surprised how well the xx did I have a vid from my go pro as well it has two other races on it

lol rappy come on sometimes we are gonna win!!!! and im sure there is something not right hello the guy is on a raptor LOL...

Yes the raptor couldn't get traction hmmm is this a common problem of raptors?

Straight axle is better at somethings I COMPLETELY GIVE YOU THAT, donuts and sliding around corners. and gets more power to rear tires i have read and believe to be true. but there are benefits to IRS better cornering as does the corvette and better traction as this video shows and a very comfy ride and HELLO MONSTER GROUND CLEARANCE I feel like im riding in BIGFOOT the truck not the ape sometimes LOL

Even cars with IRS eventually go to solid rear in drag racing. Road courses are were the cars with IRS shine. Its all in what you like to do on your quad.

So Bo, what does an 80hp trail raptor cost these days, minus the price of the quad? I have no concept of these things...but I know I like them and want one!
