That's true to a point... You also need to take into consideration... what kind of surface you're running on and selecting the proper tire for the surface... More important when selecting the tire is what are you going to do on your ride... In my case, I was going to Pismo for general riding, so it would not make sense to choose a tire designed for drag racing... that's why I have mild sand tires. (ITP Sand Stars) Yes, I did do some drag racing while I was there, but that was not my main reason for going.

it may not all be about power...but in drag racing, if you ain't got power, the rest will make little if any difference at all.

You have to be able to put the power to the ground. Are we talking about quads or race cars, I'm lost but thought I'd chime in.

Not sure where this thread is really going anymore but the XX is a great drag bike given that your racing quads that aren't primarily built to only be "drag queens". I've had a few friends come up to my property hoping to take down the XX's in a drag, only to be left dumbfounded - but not nearly as dumbfounded as when they realized how great of a trail bike it is as well.

I've yet to lose a drag race or hill climb race on the 700's and while I dont neccesarily go out looking for them, I have found myself lined up with against some serious quads that I wasn't too sure I could take down.

Start off in second, stay easy on the throttle untill she's hooked up and then let her loose. Slighly short shift into 3rd and 4th and then rev it out from there. This is how I've found the xx to be the fastest in a flat straight line.

If we could meet up, I would change that for you. The XX is a good trail bike or an occasional scratch the itch run down the track bike, but it will never be a drag bike.

Like I said, I've never raced a serious drag quad like your raptor. I've taken out 2 trx310r's, 1 HRC 450r, a 450r trike conversion with a slightly worked motor and a "big 3" raptor. The XX's are also faster than my renegade 800r. Unless your at a drag strip, this is primarily what you'd expect to come across. Your welcomed to come up here to go riding, but I doubt your 70+ hp coupled with 2" of GC will do much good thru the first mud hole or Rocky incline.

I am not sure I get your point....stock for stock the XX and raptor are pretty even, I don't know what "something done to it" is, or who it was done by. I do know if we were to race...you better bring something a lot faster than your LTZ or XX. lol
