RACING RAPTOR

 
(8/10/2009)
Dear Boss, 
  In your latest issue you talked about breaking the pittman arm on your 660 Raptor while racing in the Baja 2000. I was wandering what kind of specs and aftermarket parts or upgrades were on your quad and if you had some more pictures. I am interested in doing some Baja style races here in the future, but am not sure where to start at. Thank you guys for all the great advise in all your issues.

Wow, it's been over nine years since we prepared for that event and have built hundreds of quads since then.
  For that race, we started with a brand new Raptor (at that time a 660) and set it up with Roll suspension, an Alba exhaust, ITP tires and some goodies from Golden West Cycles (GWC). 
  Give John Gregory a call at GWC if you need any products for a Raptor 660, 700 or any other race quad and he'll sell you the right stuff at a fair price. Make sure you tell him Dirt Wheels sent ya. Good luck!
