Actually, I thought my crank bearings were going out cuz i had shavings in my filter, but I hadnt changed my filter in a while evn after a cam install and nothing looked wrong after I tore it down so Im waiting for gaskets to get it back together. And the rears are Pro Wedge II's, but I just got some 4snows on rims for free last night so Imma try those out.

What did you do with your tank?

If you look closely, it's more like "What did you do with your tank, head, and cylinder?"

They usually remove the front brakes, make the thing as light as possible. I've seen drag quads that aren't much more than frame, handle bars, motor, and tires.

So far ive added, as you can see, blaster shocks which are slightly lighter and lower the quad significantly. Removed front brakes, parking brake and all cables/levers attached to it, front light, front fenders, a few tabs here and there, nerf bars, heel gaurds, Have some lightweight drag bars on the way. Soon to come is a +6 swingarm (cant keep front down as it is without hardly any engine work!), ported head, bored carb, bored cylinder, possibly higher compression but still pump gas, and in the far future drag arms, axle, stem, lightened frame, spindle mounts etc. All in all for everything i want..is around 4000$..Which would be all out for my bike, which is alot cheaper than mx.

He never said it was 4000 less than a MX. He said it would cost him about 4000. That is less than a MX. But that's not true. All you really need to make an MX quad is some longer arms. That's 900 or so for top of the line. Shocks are about a 1000 and a rear axle is a few hundred bucks.

...adn thats if you want a top of the line MX quad...I raced mine w/stock shocks and a-arms...I didn't do too bad, now that I have the shocks done I can tell I could have been a lot faster going out of the jumps and cornering....but a lowering link in the back of mine helped tremendously and that I got off ebay for like 30 bucks or so....a whole lot cheaper than the a-arms...

but, anywho, I've never seen a drag quad either Savannah...so don't feel bad, they look pretty bad @$$ :) :)

I'd like to check out one of those races someday...so Bot, they do drags only in Sand?? do they do them on pavement also??

They race everything on pavement. They run sleds on the 1/4 mile strip. The snow mobiles can hit nearly 200 mph on pavement. If you go to the big sand dune spots, that's where you see the people with money. They have these kind of toys.

What i meant by 4k and less than a mx quad is going all out. With 4000$ my bike will be pretty much as drag of a bike as you can possibly make it with as many parts as you can get. The only thing that wont be high dollar is the engine, becuz of course you can get more than 5k just in an engine. But comparing to amx, thats 4k and ive got a top of the line drag bike, to get a top of the line mx bike your going to spend ALOT more than 4k. But to each their own.

If you look at the four stroke war videos on youtube, the majority of the bikes you see with no plastics what so ever are TRXs, and thats what im going for. Pretty much a frame, tires, engine, handlebars. And they fly
