What is your favorite kind of racing and why?

I really enjoy desert racing, or way point racing. This is the kind of riding I grew up doing. There is nothing like the feeling you get after finishing a 100 mile race. When you are out there it is you and the desert. You might find one line that you can hit 5 gear wide open, then the next turn you pick one that is 1st gear crawling through rocks. There is no groomed or marked track. You go however you want as long as you hit all the check points in order. I grew up in the desert so that's what I know. Now that I'm living in the mountains and woods I'm alot more interested in GNCC stuff. Lamo's don't have any racing circuits in Colorado.

I'm torn. I love MX and Harescramble racing equally...

MX: When you're jumping those killer doubles, or even tabletops, and you catch so much air, you get this feeling of freedom....and confidence, like hell yeah I jumped and landed that. Plus, people see the entire race from start to end....you get a lot of support that way...butt if you mess up, and crash, they all see that too.....which, actually if you need an ambulance, it's better to wreck in mx than gncc...:wink:

Harescrambles: The start doesn't really matter...you can have the worst start ever, but the race is atleast an hour and a half long, and people are bound to hit trees, get stuck in the mud, blow a tire, break parts..get tired and slow down...so you can usually catch up if everything goes smooth for you...the downside is, you're running 8-14 mile laps, and you hardly ever see people. And when you do see people, you get this little bit of juice in your bones and you sometimes make mistakes trying to show your skills.....not that that's ever happened to me or anything:biggrin:

What I think you're getting at is harescramble racing....the main series is the GNCC series...but nearly every state/region of the US has a series....we've raced the Mid-South Series here in TN, they race in TN, KY, IN, IL, AL areas...in May we'll start racin the WNYOA series in NY, most races are in NY, but some are in PA too.

As far as classes in harescrambles, you can race any size quad in any class...most are 400ex's or 450's....some people have 300ex's or the Raptors, but most series have an age requirement of 16 years, so most quads are the bigger cc models....and the races take place in the woods, some have good field sections too, but mostly you're in the woods for 1 1/2 -2 hours....

does that help?

I don't see who would care. They do make you put the number of cc's your motor is on the ticket that you sign up with...and they use the same ticket for all AMA sanctioned events, so, I'm not sure if there is a requirement as far as how big a motor can be...I'll see if I can find that out for you, but, the only thing they really test for at the race is the sound/noise that your exhaust puts off. If it's too loud, they'll sit you out races until you get it quieter...

**goin to search for the motor stuff now**

      Hi All,
      Want to show you one automotive show that I filmed in my town called Crazy Race. This was two day race in Qualifications round, Semifinals and Final. In this 4 parts I am showing best moments from all rounds and entertainment of the show.
      Crazy Race Part 2 contains a qualifying round where all riders race against each other, selected by lot and split by two. They are free to drive in any direction and to hit their opponent's car everywhere except at the driver's door. Anyone who intentionally hit the other car in the driver's door is disqualified. Winner of each race continue in the semifinal round. In this part I will present the best moments of the qualifying round! 
       
      Part 3 shows you the best moments from Day 2 - Semifinals and Final. Battles in the semifinals are among the winners of the first day races, but this time they are selected by lot and divided into 4 battles of 4-5 cars each. The rules in each battle are that they only have to drive in one direction and try to neutralize other opponents until there are only two players left. Then the battle between the two last drivers has the rule to drive in any direction until only one who has qualified for the final round is left. Again, anyone who intentionally hit the other car in the driver's door is disqualified.
      For the final round there were only two cars left, because the other two players who got the right to be there had problems with their car and could not participate.
       
      Part 4 containing entertainments between battles and winners rewarding.
      This event will have second round in 05-06 October 2019 and also will be filmed  For this new round I will filmed in many new angels and places. Will prepare a lot more videos and many new entertainments . This 4 videos was my first try so many things to wish for better filming in the future one.
      Hope you will like them and of course feel free to comment and to ask everything. Hope you will Subscribe to my channel and to be first to see my other content and of course new round of Crazy Race! Thanks!

      I like to ride in wooded and grassy areas. It takes my mind off the everyday routines and helps me deal with my father's cancer. Also gives me a reason to get involved with forums like this one.

      Hello,
      Does anyone have any experience with Bronco or Race Driven shocks? I have a 1987 Big Bear 350 and looking for a rear replacement shock and those seem to be the only 2 brands available anymore.

      What kind of riding do you prefer? Do you like trails, dunes, track, or drag strip? What's your poison?
      I prefer trails over anything. There is nothing like running through the woods and having to deal with all the elements. Trails truly test a riders ability. I know I can't air my quad out like alot of guys do but I can fly through logs, water crossings, I've passed big 4x4 quads on my 450 with 4" of ground clearance through some nasty rock fields. Rocks the size of volleyballs and bigger.(god bless skid plates) MX is cool but it is very repetitive, the dunes get old and dragging, well it's too short of a ride.
      I'm not trying to start a battle here, just some opinions.
