Open house this past weekend was a blast! Didnt really rain that hard, i got to race my xx. in 500ft i ran an 8.031 at 64.99 mph. I should be running 7.8s with it but i cant keep it from coming straight up on me off the line. other then that i took 6th out of 70 some ppl heads up, i smoked a yfz 450 with motor mods he ran 8.554 at 60.13 mph. Then i got knocked out in the 5th round against a really built honda 450 that was just for drag racing. He ran a 7.652 at 66.78 mph. that guy took 2nd for the night. the guy that took 1st was in the 6 second range running over 80mph haha.

haha, its a honda 450, well thats what it started as. all i know is that the whole bike is made from titanium, i also know that there is a 1200 dollar harley davidson carburator on it. and he is puttng out 95horsepower. he crosses the finish in a wheelie. id say if he could hook up and actually keep it on the track he would most likely be in the 5 second range at over 90mph. i know the bike is over 30,000$ invested. i dont see and nitrous im pretty sure thats all motor. its insane, he bunny hops the hole quad off off the ground out of the hole sometimes. i want my blaster fixed haha!

Bout time we had a +6" rear end for the 700xx. I would love to build one, drag racing a quad is unheard of in the UK. Now there's something to think about !:D

hey i was racing the red and black xx i talked to you for a few min up there. I got knocked out early in the drags by a 450...i popped my front end up and almost came back on my self then i stalled out when i came back down.... it gave him an easy win. that was my first time drag racing and i was running around 58mph. i will definetly be practicing for the next time though.

Haha yeah i remember you. I knocked you out i think in atv bracket class. You need to get some mods done to your xx, pipe, efi controller and air cleaner will help you alot. i should be running 7.8 seconds but the track was to loose in the beginning of the night. i took 6th in heads up. i got knocked out by the guy that took second.

i think you knocked out the other kid with the stock xx. mine has and fmf pipe, fmf power programmer and a uni air filter. My programmer is still set at it stock settings, it did make a huge differance but it was only my first day riding with it so i havent changed anything...yet. I got knocked out to the blue raptor that was all decked out. i agree they put way to much water on the track it was really bad...they were running a lot of laps on the track before the races trying to get it to dry up a little.

i didnt get to talk to him much...by the time i restarted my bike he was almost past the finish line so i couldnt even tell you how close it would have been...a little more practice and i will be ready for the next time. as i said i never raced anything before so it was a new experience for me
