Has anybody raced their Yamaha 4 stroke like they were in a real X-country race yet? Through the trees an down mogul filled ditch lines yet? How does it hold its line when runnin that hard in the trees? Is it a confidence insipiring ride when the tree are whizzin by your head as you line it up for the next crater filled corner?

Skunk - I ran mine a bit harder in the woods last night now that I made some adjustments. Was a ton better than before but still doesn't quite track like my xc800 (did). I still have too much weight transferring back. Gonna pull the limiter strap down 2 holes and try again.

I get more impressed with the power everytime out (180 miles now). Now that I have 96 picks, the thing is a rocket and lifts too easily, thus the need for less weight transfer.
Recently I was asked to play in a golf tournament.

At first I said, "Naw, I haven't been playing that well."

Then they said to me, "Come on, it's for handicapped and blind kids."

Then I thought...




Chit, I could win this!

Aren't you losin some suspension every time you suck them limiter straps down? and isn't 96 studs kinda light for 140hp?

96 will be plenty and i ran all double digger backers. If for some reason its not enough traction, the pattern I have will easily let me go to 120 or 144 down the middle.

With the 1 1/4 ripsaw track and 96 it seems to hook up better than my XC with 1" and 144 studs. Not to mention with no studs on the outer belts that should help cornering as well.

There is no reason to ever go over 144 unless you spend a lot of time on clean ice or are using a UB1200 or something.

The stud companies like that a lot of people overstud.

Ken, you may hook up O.K., but its hard on the track running that few studs with that much horsepower. I don't wanna see you having to buy a new track next season.

I'm not sure if Skunk could handle an awsome sled like a RX1, maybe better stick to smelly chainsaw motor sleds with less power. LOL
Don't you know racing is for the kiddies? Time to venture into the real world.
