Hey everybody I was just wondering how many guys are riding mx with their raptors. I ran my first one last week with my basiclly stock raptor and ended up in 8th place out of 14. I ran in the a class with the top riders in my area that all ride 450s and was wondering how others were doing against those lightweights. I just ordered the big three with a ct pipe pc3 with quick shift and new rims and tires and a wider axle to help her slide around the corners a little better. I think with those mods I should be able to pull on those dam 450s. :confused: Any advice on what other mods would help for mx riding are welcome. :thumbsup:

Ive seen pictures and a vid or two of you riding on a nice looking mx track. Is that a atv only track or do they run bikes on it too? The track I raced on last week is more of a bike track, and we run last. Which sucks because the track was dry as hell and rutted up pretty bad by the time we raced. I had problems with the ruts and the sharp corners because of all the berms from the bikes. Any tips for that type of situation?

I just come from a riding school this weekend given by a pro rider. We have made a friendly race at the end and the Raptor can compete very well against those 450's on a mx track. With the appropriate mods the raptor jumps smooth and handle like nothing.
