Maddog56 said:In stock form the DS is comprable in performance to a 660, and even at a bid of a disadvantage. They don't respond nearly as well to exhaust and intake changes as the 660 and 700 and are very expensive to modify after that point. The up side is that they can be made to make more power than the 660 and 700, but the 700 is still in early development stages and should soon surpass the ds.
For the hit you're likely to take in selling the 700 and buying a ds you could probably at least begin to pay for an aftermarket suspension setup for the 700 that would put a stock ds to shame in the ride dept.
Oh, I wasnt saying it was king or anything...I was just saying that the 700 with its short exsistance is indeed out there beating the piss out of highly modded ds's at organized drag racing events. Its taking turbos or alky to stand a chance against rockets 770 and now 804.....Maddog56 said:The number of events and the variety of participants that have been in the races you refer to aren't numerous or broad enough yet to let me call the 700 king, and there's still a few 300' runs that need to be met and beaten.
Ok fair enough....just weird that you dont see any of these fast ds's beating up the 700 at these big time drag events. THere have been several threw out the year. RF keeps kickin ass and takin names!Maddog56 said:Those who pay attention to the 4 stroke world typically understand the existence and unrivaled superiority of 2 strokes and therefore ignore them when comments are made about "fastest" and "quickest" and include only 4 strokes in comparison. I imagine you understood that though, so I'll reiterate for clarity for others.
I've seen yfzs and trxs beat out of very well built 660's, ds', and the like but I know that the ones they beat aren't the best. I have no doubt that RF is tearing up the track, I just don't believe that their machines or any other 700 has been exposed to enough competition yet to claim all out victory over the DS. The day will come and it's well on it's way but IMO it has not happened yet.
RaptorRandy27 said:Boom, no worries just wanted to set the record straight. Yes the YFZ'z that run those times are in drag chassis and are power adders as well as the bad assed fast 660R based Raptors. The 700R will get there it's just not there yet.
There are some serious 700R's in the process of being built around the country as I write this so you might just see someone put one of these bad boys in a drag chassis and run some killer times in the near future :thumbsup:
