estatic Raptor vs TREX 700

Was riding some Tight trails that have rocks At perry lake in kansas and was told by a raptor owner that he could not do what i was doing his quad wasnt made for this. I asked him what was it made for if not to ride trails. He answer? To ride around and have fun and When i told him the raptor was sold as a trail bike it was to narrow for the track and to narrow for the dunes according to reviews he then shrugged his shoulders. He was a nice guy so i asked if he wanted to race he declined... By the way this was the blue raptor 660.

This wasnt a race just a run in with a raptor 660 he refused to race and i enjoyed his comparison of the two quads and knew all the TREX-700 owners would get a good laugh

His main problem is he had no clearance with the straight rear axle and the trails are rough he said he has been stuck out there alot and high centered alot. I told him his was narrower than mine and in that respect he had the edge

I am going to give the the TREX-700 the most hated by other quad owners award lol i found a thread on exriders that is still going on its over two years old about which is better a rappy or TREX-700 lol

So im wondering will anyone with a raptor come race me on trails? Cause for two years they have been claiming the rappy is the best trail quad and that 80hp rappies are better than a xx well open invite come change my mind come beat me. And no i dont drag race and even when i owned a rappy i didnt drag race... So come race me on trails.... I think thats what atv's are for.. But be warned there are not any well groomed trails here. And the one rappy i have seen refused to race

You do meet some pansy ass raptor owners, LOL. Wish I lived in the US, I would take you up on the offer. The problem with most raptor owners in the US is that they focus on power more than in suspension and tires. I for one think that the first mods done to raptors should be to respring and revalve all 3 shocks, chassis and swinger skid plates and 23in front tires and 22in rears. This combo is awesome and can be done relatively cheap. Glad you like your xx bro.
