I realize it will be a wheelie machine and would be handful in a drag start. I mostly want to make sure it isn't a bad time, I want it to still be fun. Thoughts?
I ran a +4 with your current build and loved it. I’m on a +8 now at 80hp and it’s still fun on the dunes, trails, tree shots, and works pretty well for racing.
