I raced my Z-470 in Genoa NE last weekend for the fall Jamboree. They have sand drags there, and I took 1st place in the 400cc builder class, ReloadZ400 (Matt) took 2nd. Then we both decided to move up a class, and I took 2nd in the 450 builder class.
Sweet looking Quad!
It was a blast! We have been getting ready for it for a couple weeks which included several drag races between the corn fields.
We got there saturday to watch the stock classes, and try out our setups. Natually, I bought some different rims to put my haulers on, and didn't realize till we got there that they fit a Yamaha.
So by the time we got back to Matt's, took care of all the other stuff we needed to do, and got in the garage, I think it was 3am by the time I had the rims drilled to fit my Z, and we got the paddle tire on his bike and had everything ready. So, You needed Yamaha wheels to win?
Sunday, we got there and had a little time to spare, so we went out and practiced a while. It felt great, we were both putting away a lot of 450 based quads that we could see were there to race.
We had the 400 builder hands down. It was Matt and myself in the finals both un defeated, both on 470's, and mine is just faster. I think it was rider skill!
Then we decided to move up a class to see how we would do. Matt made it quite a few rounds in, and at some point they started seperating the Raptors from the 450 and smaller bikes, even though some of us were beating some of the raptors
But anyways, after they split it up, I faced a YFZ in our final and got beat. That thing was a rocket, and allegedly still 450cc's which I'm not sure if I believe or not. If you had Yamaha front rims, I think you would have won!
Then he went on to face a built raptor and lost to him.
So technically I got 3rd in the 450+ but they split the class for whatever reason.
Either way, we had a blast, and definately had the fastest 400cc based quads there. We did a whole bunch of exibition drag racing, and not much out there could beat me. I beat a whole slew of 450's There was a 525 Polaris/KTM that was about even with me, I beat a 250R, a couple banshees that must not have had too many mods, some modded raptors, all with my underdog Z.
I should have more pics and maybe a video or two eventually.
