This is my dream quad that I built myself. I am a hill climb racer in Colorado and loved the way the R handled but it just don't have the MPH that the banshee is capable of. So for the races I do like Pikes Peak International Hill Climb this is my weapon of choice. There are to many mods to remember in fact evrything is aftermarket but the frame and I modified that myself to accept the banshee motor. It also has PEP suspension all around, RPM is a great sponsor of mine and have hooked me up with a -2 swingarm, +3 +1 A Arms, Cyclone hubs, anti fade, axle, steering tem +1 pretty much one of everything from there catalog. Way to much to remember C&R radiator, and of cousrse the 500cc Trinity Cheetah motor putting out in excess of 100hp. I also run a high pressure air shifter for full throttle up shifts. I am leaving out a lot of stuff but I can't give up all my tricks. It is in my oppinion the perfect high speed quad. If you have a banshee I will smoke you in the turns, and if you are riding an R I am ganna go by you so fast on the straight away that I might suck the paint right off your frame. Are ther any other hybrids R's out there lets see them. By the way I am not trying to diss the R motor it is the best power plant for all other types of racing. Just not hill climbing were the mighty twin has always ruled. By the way I have been through the radar trap at 117mph on the bike. Try that on your R and I don't mean in a straight line put some turns in there as well.

That is one cool quad. I always thought it would be sick to have one of the laeger banshees that were built using 250R geometry.

I think the -2 swingarm is because of traction. The pikes peak hill climbers have set ups similar to a TT quad which also uses shorter swingarms. The course is pretty smooth like a well maintained road.

Most of my close up pictures are old and of the bike when it had a 350cc motor but here are some old close ups. The short swwingarm is for traction but it also makes it turn in harder as well. It is a wheelieing mother [email protected]#$er.

I have got several close ups but they are all to big and I am a racer not a computer person. Can Somebody that knows more than me give me an email and I will send you some pictures so you can resize them and post them.

open a photobucket.com account. upload the photo's on there and they'll automatically resize them. or open the pics in "paint" and use the "stretch/skew" feature to shrink them. if i can figure it out anyone can!

that is badass i always wanted to see someone do that

No kidding! I'd love to see the Exhaust set up on it. That must have been tricky. I see you dont have it dual out either side like a normal banshee. Both going into one expansion chamber?

Pics of the exhaust setup!

I second that motion...pics of the exhaust setup. Surely you have two pipes?!? I don't see how the quad would run with one expansion chamber...

How well does the Honshee fare against Quadzilla-powered quads? I've owned two LT500R's and one Banshee. I personally wasn't impressed with the LT500R's.

I've seen a couple of guys on quadracerhq.com that build some really sick Quadzilla motors and stuff them into LT250R frames. How do you fare against them?

My Banshee was actually a pretty sweet quad...very reliable, something that my LT500R's definitely were not!
