Holdenkush Very True I suppose but up here in canada we have miles and miles of open fields, roads and trails. Never really have to worry about not having enough space to hit fifth. A race is a race.

True, and by rider skill you are including the reaction time, cause that's where it's at if you ask me. It's all about the hole shot when bikes are close to same speed.

crwh45 I agree with ya there Rappy. Almost across the board, 450s vs 450s, to the 700s, stock for stock, it's more or less based on the rider as most put out the same numbers and what not. Maybe not top speed, but that is a different story.

09RappySE Actually no....all races are not topped out, as roadkill said, some are drag races which are short races where top speed has nothing to do with winning.

That's about right for the raptor. Even stock for stock the xx is usually a quad or two ahead in the end even if they take the launch.

Haven't got to race any renegade 1000 yet. But I'd like to think if I got the launch I'd take him the rest of the way. Beat lots of grizzlys and 850xp's.
That depends on where you race... If you race spur of the moment you may be limited to how much space/distance you have available.

BleedRed 10 min after i bought mine i raced my buddy with a 09 yfz 450. he is stock, but he took baffle and air lid off. mine has the big 3 and a sprocket. it was the first time i rode it of course but we were pretty close through 3rd any way. he got me by half a bike a few times but i could have launched better just bought that fagget. we both can ride but id say stock for stock the xx dont stand a chance unless we are 4th 5th gear toping them out.
