How many of you think you will end up decking it out to be a full mx quad? just curious
i think i am going to use it for xc. yfzs are still the top mx quad in my opinion
You clearly have never raced 20min motos. I raced XC before I raced MX and did quite a few of them. Just prefer more speed and flying so went strictly to MX.well i would have to say it takes alot more strength and endurance to race 2 hours that it does for 15 minuts.
Maybe a little more out of you, but don't worry, you can rest in 5 more minutes.You clearly have never raced 20min motos. I raced XC before I raced MX and did quite a few of them. Just prefer more speed and flying so went strictly to MX.
TRy hitting the gas harder!!
I used to race 2hrs+ in hare scrambles and yes, I'd be tired. But I didn't train or anything; just went out to ride and did pretty good against other races. I started doing MX and would be more tired after each race, especially if I race more than one class. Try two 20min motos where you're nonstop going all out side-by-side racing.
So obviously you didn't win and don't know what it takes to Win.
It takes a lot more out of you, especially if you race more than one class. And I workout 4-5 times a week and do a lot of training so in much better shape now then I was back then. I give it up to XC riders b/c I know what you have to deal w/and it's quite a challenge. But imo, MX takes a lot more out of you.
Yea i feel exactly the same. i have done 2 mx races on it bone stock and it did great. got a 3rd and a 4th overall. not bad. a steering dampner is a must though and some stiffer side walled tires. there is way to much side flex for hard cornering.i raced mine on the mx track and in the woods last weekend stock. it did amazing on the mx track. the only complaints i have on the motocros track are the front shocks, they are wayy too stiff for me. i am only 140 lbs and i have them set back as far as they go and still too stiff for me. im going to get them rebuilt or either get some elkas this winter.
in the woods it wasnt what i thought it would be. its fast and the gears were perfect but the handling didnt impress me. i think all it needs is a dampner and it willl be good to go for the woods. i am also going to order a precision this winter or maybe sooner.
