Last trip to little sahara, me and my buddy raced a raptor700. Then we played musical quads (mostly cause I wanted to ride the raptor). No matter what quads we were on, we finished the same order everytime. (#1 other guy, #2 me, #3 my buddy)
my buddy trx700xx bone stock
mine trx700xx 13t, paddles
other guy raptor700 uni, baffle removed, paddles
These 3 quads with these few mods are all close enough that rider still made the difference.
