    Need to stop buying flat bills and drop some coin on wider arms. I'd love to have a race 4wheeler or one that wasnt broke really (have 3 sitting at my farm doing nothing).

    Marcus, defiantly should have gotten one! Absolute blast but like you said, it will take away from your jeep fund for sure. That's why the new chromos may have some interest attached to them.

    Steve, i dont know what your talking about. The flat bills make me faster. haha. But if i was doing strictly mx then i would defiently get 2+ or even some 3+ arms and lower it even more but being that ill be racing GNCC which is alot of tight, rough woods riding, im going to keep it narrow for now. I may do some 1+ arms later on but nothing more than that. Mainly just for the added strength of an aftermarket arm and the adjustability for fine tuning. Alot of guys are actually putting narrower arms on 450's in the woods. I'm just gonna keep riding it and see what needs to be changed. March 17 is my first race so hopefully i'll have it dialed in enough by then.

    Found this the other day. For those who aren't familiar with GNCC racing, here is a video from round 4 in Union SC last year. One of the few i'll be able to race in this season.

    Steve, Ill be in the ATV AM First Year Racer class. Doesn't count for points but I decided i'd try my luck at it and see if i have a chance before I register in the higher classes. From what it sounds like, i could probably run in C class but i'd rather just stick with the lower class my first year.

    Well since the jeep has been pissing me off, i decided to get back to tinkering on the 400. New chain and sproket kit came in, as well as number decals.

    Well just got back from my first race in Georgia! It was definitely one hell of a race. Heavy rain friday night made for an interesting track. Start went great! Got the holeshot and lead into the woods. Not long after, realized how much rain actually fell the night before. Big mud section had a bunch of people stuck, thankfully I was able to make it through with some throttle. Then about half way through the first lap (lap= about 10 miles) I clipped a tree with the rear end and broke both seat/fender mounts. Therefor causing my seat to no stay in place. Eventually i ripped it off and threw it in the woods. Rode about half the race with no seat so i had to stand up the whole time. Not a good riding position. So i lost alot of time with that. About the 3rd lap i was worn out from not being able to sit down, so i grabbed the seat next time by and slammed it back on. Then i had to ride the rest of the race sitting down so it didn't fall off. Again, not ideal. Also didn't have any rear brakes the whole race. Majorly sucked in the slop. But after a couple minor bails, one decent crash and a bunch of stuck in the ruts.....finished 2nd in my class!!

    Overall, it was certainly an experience. I had a blast, learned alot of what i need to change and work on for the next race. Hopefully i can get some pictures up tomorrow when the photographer posts them.

    Just a couple pictures... These are right after the start (got the holeshot ) so still clean. Every inch of me and the 400 were covered in mud by the end. Final time was 4 laps in 2 hours and 23 minutes. I'll hopefully do better next time if everything holds together. haha
