My buddy got a really clean shot of me all strapped in for a pass ! And I also made the local clubs show I always go to. And I went down on the front sprocket to get my 60í times down and maybe find 4th gear finally. And I also got a ultra sweet set of skat trak big paddle tires for sand drag racing. We are going may 10-11th so stay tuned for that one.

Oh yeah the exhaust is still 4 into 4 but they are under the engine in the oem spot. Gotta get a collector made to put my stainless muffler setup on it. It feels like it has more bottom end for sure. Canít wait to try it with a collector and a new efi tune.

For now enjoy some pics.............

I’m gonna see if the regular fronts work as I will only be cruising or drag racing in a straight line. I don’t have enough shock to dune it without tearing it apart.

The weather doesn’t look like it’s gonna cooperate for sand drags down south so we came up with a backup plan to go way north to the sand dunes. After weather up there for sure. So I will have some videos for sure of it throwing sand !

Got some sweet updates.

Got it rolled out and got some pics of the humungo tires. And we found out the Douglas blue label wheels have a up and down bow to them when turning so I think I found my high speed vibration issue. Gonna buy some nice alloy wheels that are truer and straighter. Also one of the headlights went out so I updated them to some brighter ones also.

So I got some really good videos but canít save them from Facebook. So I guess pictures will have to do for now.............

That quad runs high 3 seconds in a 100 yards and I was right beside him with no tuning on mine or gear changing !!! Everything went really well. Gotta brace the rear axle area now as itís tweaking a little bit under the high hp. And I may or may not have gotten the front tires to exit the earth finally !!!

I have a feeling by this next year, a different engine will be sitting on this thing with a lot more power.

It’s getting a turbo. Already planned on it. And the new lights from amazon are quite a bit brighter for sure !!! Not bad for about $30. Would buy them again for sure.

And try this video link guys...............

We are trying it again. This time with softer front shocks for a smoother ride on my toosh. And I also had a sprocket made from pbi sprockets and got it in three days !!!

Had a 52t went to a 60t and also have a true dr2 dragbike chain to hold the power also.

Gonna try it Saturday hopefully.........rain allowing that is been kinda wet in these parts lately.
