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 60’ 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. Can’t wait to try it with a collector and a new efi tune.

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

Going sand drag racing next weekend. Can’t wait to see the time differences between asphalt and dirt style drag racing.

Hahaha ! What’s funny is I don’t think they are big enough still. These things are 24x11x10. And are true skat traks with there ripper paddles. :ack2::ack2:

Running sand tires in the front too or just the paddles in back?

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 can’t 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 it’s tweaking a little bit under the high hp. And I may or may not have gotten the front tires to exit the earth finally !!! :wai::cheers2:

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

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.

What's the clearance like with that new large sprocket and the ground?

A whole bunch ! It’s got 24” tall ripper skat trak paddles on it. I still haven’t had the cash to get my Hoosiers for the asphalt drag strip yet but their gonna clear just fine also.
