I just recently purchased an 06`Raptor and would like to know what you guys are doing to keep the front end planted when drag racing without having to purchase a swing arm! I know about the lowering kit but the ones I see only drop you about an inch! I`ve got some smaller hole shots for the front ordered but is there some other tricks like different shocks from other atv`s or something! we mostly play around at the drag strip with very little trail riding but shocks seem like something that could easily be changed!

Launch in second, leaning over the bars with your nuts on the tank. Stiffening your rear shock will help also.

Other than that Brother, it's a swinger.

Second gear launches help but it'll still up if you get to happy with the gas.

I use a ratchet strap & ratchet the front suspension down All the way when I am drag racing. It really helpes keep the front down & helps keep your power up..
