Raced a Can Am 800

Spent the weekend camping and riding at our ATV Club this past weekend. We have a 500' dragstrip there that is free to use at anytime. We were doing some play racing when a guy on a Outlander 800 showed up. Needless to say I was very interested to see how my FST 840 teryx would stack up against him. It was a pretty new one with a hmf pipe on it. We lined up, but had no flagger to start us, so we pretty much looked at each other and took off, i got the jump on him and had him by a good two lengths at 300', he starting to reel me in, but i got him by a few feet at 500'!! We lined up again, this time he wasted no time getting out of the hole! I still had him good at 300' but he reeled me in and got me by a few feet at 500' Needless to say i was very happy with those results. He was full of questions afterwards! I dont think there is a stock quad made that would beat me in 300'! This thing just launches with the dalton orange/blue in it. I was running my 26" bighorn 2.0 at the time and had stock tires on. Sorry no video or pics, but he was telling me about a nearby track that runs a UTV class and lets them run against the 4x4 quads also, so ill be sure to get some when i go.

I've run a remegade at a 500ft track... I ran an 8.5 and he run a 7.9. Stock carbs with trail cams.

Cams I had laying around when i built this motor and have been planning upgrading later but now this makes me want to do it sooner.

How much did the roller clutch help you out champ?

I dont think the roller helped any on acceleration. I also have the machined clutch but again I dont see much of an improvement other than topend and smoother operation, although it does come of the line better. I have a flat spot around 30 mph when i hit the throttle now, didnt have it before i had the clutch done, but i also changed springs, so some more testing needs done. But im very happy on my drag race results. BTW, im also running stock carbs.

It's no problem for his customers to get parts,they come to me all the time. You can sell from a empty shelf. I think you may know some of them. They call, and their order goes out the next day.

I am also running the FST 840 with Vforce machined clutch. But John installed the amber spring for my dune/sand trail riding. So I am wondering what is the difference with the different springs? I also have the 26" bighorn 2.0 and stock carbs.
