Hey guys, I am new tothis site. Grew up racing 2 wheels from the 2stroke era. And even though I have switched to 4strokes for the last 4 or 5 yrs, I have also made the switch to quads. Which I have a 450r now bought from eastcoast, and I just bought a 250r that is worked by lonestar. I bought it mostly bc theres nothing like the smell of benol in the morning. HAHA and even though its doesnt compare to my 450r I'd love to have a 2stroke class at the local mx races to run it in. Has this started anywhere else for quads or are there any rumors of it ever happening? I know they have done this for bikes for the past few years now.

Im in district 6 by the way.

Thanks for reading and your input/opinion.

Well, out here in the West we have the ITP Quadcross series, and they have a 91-25-cc 2-stroke class. That's what I run. But there aren't many entries most of the time. And really, I keep up just fine running with the the 450 4-strokes. I only run the 2-stroke class to try and support it and to let the promoters know that we're still here! I don't expect the class will last much longer though. It's mainly a "Blaster class", and now that they quit making that... I figure the days are numbered.

Thats a great website. as you can see I am new to the quad scene. I will post it there, I may get laughed out of the forum, but who cares. There has to be some other people that still love the 2stroke.

I dunno about it being all that great always room for improvement IMO .....but it does have links for classes,racing, rules etc

I dunno your age or ability ..but maybe you should look into the open classes also

Not local, I actually live next door to Pagoda. Which is ironic I made the switch to quads when they won't let me come near the track with them. But I will be doing the Ultimate series as much as possible, so please do get in touch. I just recently scooped a 250r done completely by lonestar, could use some feedback and advice on it.

Thanks,

Damien

Thats Great! Good luck to her and you this year. Yea i just saw sleepy is cancelled. That may be a good thing for me, I havent had much time on the quad, not as much as id like so I will be able to get a lot of practice in saturday. Ill be over at pagoda this sunday to watch the action. Going to be weird not being there to race. Id appreciate any help i could get with my 250r, what do you know about the TCI suspension they put on it? It doesnt seem near as good as my elka. But i havent had much time on it to know for sure either. Are you riding saturday anywhere?

motorhome this weekend & her new 14 gery enclosed trailer ,.. her # this year is 347 on a 06 KTM 65 ..stop by if you see us ....

the TCS are usually a good set up ,but I've never owned TCS tho I prefer PEP's,got em on all 3 of my R's ;) ..& IMO elka is not as good as either ...but I know thats not usually popular opinion its just based on my (short ) experience with elka ...if ya like bring your quad over & I'll check 'er out some

hey welcome to the r world! i am also a two wheeler as well :rolleyes: i'm over in minnesota district 23.We just started a 2 stroke class for quads, 91cc and up.And we finnaly tweaked our bike class structure to help out the 125 guys, as well as limiting 250cc 2 or 4 stroke in our other class,leaving out the 450's.good luck on the r, a well tuned r will have no problem hanging with the 450's... imo.

Yea I didnt race pagoda. But i was at sleepy, I may have met you, I met a ton of people with being new to the quads. How did you make out at sleepy? Will you be in evansville? I will be going up and trying to race the supercross and the sunday race, have a banged up wrist so im hoping it feels better by then.
