I'd do a stock bore stock stroke motor build with a 6-8inch arm and put struts and a bar on it and boom your done. Then take the bar off and put the shocks back on for duning.

I see where the bar would help so there would be no suspension drop in the rear bit what do the struts do other than reduce weight in the front.

Reduce weight and lower the front end.

As far as the classes are the classes are setup what normally is the difference between a 4stroke modified and an open class rig. Is there normally some big change that moves you up like stretched frame or something.

Best thing to do is look up the class rules for the organization your going to race with and then build your bike to fit those rules. Rather than build a bike and then try to figure out where it fits. Generally an open class is run what ya brung, no restrictions on Engine size or modifications to engine or chassis. Modified will usually have some sort of engine and or chassis restriction.

Yeah, I am waiting for them to get them posted. I have been back and forth with my buddy who owns the local shop all day on what platform to build. He is really trying to push me into a banshee.

You can go faster with less money on a banshee, but that's what everybody builds and races. It's nice to have something a little different.
