He could be full of dookie and trying to throw people off. But the theory is it cuts a shift out and lets you hold hold it in gear longer...but can be abusive on the clutch.


    Also you mentioned it has a bog. You should dig into that and figure out the cause. Sounds like you are working on it, but obviously it will help your track performance. Are you lean on the pilot/needle? Have an air leak? Hopefully you are running an open air box.

    That does look like a bunch of fun. Do they ever run a full track? Right and left turns?
    Yeah I've been playing with my rear shock compression adjustment as well trying to get it to transfer more weight to the rear on my launch. When you go softer it feels like it tightens me up quite a bit on corner entry though. Gonna keep playing with that and hopefully with this pipe I just got and getting my smartcarb back I can pull a little taller gearing. And just body position and like you said throttle and clutch control. Thing is you can practice starts all day on the lake and feel pretty good about it but go to the track and line up with 10 four pokes and it's a whole different ball game. You can't hear them 258cc's. Lol so it's gonna just take a little bit I think. I had no problem pulling hole shots last year on my brothers LTR. It's part of the challenge with the two strokes. I might take a look at my stud pattern too maybe I can run a few more in. I'm pretty sure it's still sealed up good but I'm gonna do a leak test tomorrow while my pipe and carbs off. The stock airboot is probably holding me back. I've trimmed on it a little and opened up the airbox but I'm anxiously waiting for Troy to finish up his box cause I think that will help me out a lot. The Grand Championship race on lake Pontiac will have a GP course (right and left turns) on Saturday February 13th and oval track on Sunday. I plan on running both. Unfortunately they just cancelled our race this Sunday cause we're expecting rain.. Sucks but I'll have a little more time to work on the setup and save some money. Might just go out and practice Saturday.

    Damn that is one super sweet R. I'm in love with it. Allison you have great tastes in parts and plastics are shining. Keep it up. Those 4-strokes boys will get intimidated after looking at that quad. Lol

    After tweaking everything you've mentioned you should be right up there in the front. Let's see a 1st place. Its very attainable with your quad. And then you can enter into the "best of show" contest. You would take 1st for sure.

    Our races got cancelled this weekend cause It's gonna be about 40* tomorrow with rain but we got some practice in today. Hard to get a good feel for my suspension adjustments with the ice so soft. But I'm liking the new pipe and having the smartcarb back on. I'm pretty happy with the quad overall considering it's an mx setup with a swaybar. Gonna be a challenge but I think we can get a win.

    And the new led pipe definitely colored nicely. This is the way everyone wants a raw pipe to look after breaking it in. Imo

I started dialing it back in between heats and was finding some speed. Had to run a couple LCQ's and then had a couple mains that were almost back to back. I ran three different classes. This video is my last race of the day and I had one right before it. My crew chief cleaned my goggles off but not the GoPro so it's not real clear. Lol but I was able to pick up a couple spots from the back row. We ended on a good note with my brother taking another second overall in rubber class! I definetly feel like I'm being out motored.. All of our classes switched to open classes now because the chairman bought a LT500 but I'm not quite ready to go bigger yet. Maybe when I get a little more caught up here I'll see what Arlen has up his sleeve for me.

    I'd find out a hall or even a Dr Q zilla is hard to walk on without going really big trust me after having both, a 363 sphinx minimum up to a saber for a drag bike for a well built Hall or a hybrid engineering liger, a stock cylinder won't hang with either.

    I just noticed how many sections Arlan added to that 350G. It looks much much better.

    Any type of coating on the pipe? It almost looks like he's using a different type of steel now

    I'm not too worried about it yet. I'm gonna go bigger I'm just trying to put things in place. I need to get my backup motor done first and save up for a trailer. We'll get there guys bear with me. This is hopefully just the start

    This is the new 250-300 E pipe. He said he found some gains with it and was really excited about it but I'm not real sure about the material. There is definetly a lot of sections in it. The oil he had on it smelled like jb 80 so that's what I put on it.
