IT IS MORE OF A BUGGY THAN A RAPTOR. So all of you dirt bike riders quit making fun of people who ride quads, when you think a rail buggy is the COOLEST thing ever!!!

You put a turbo injected motor into your raptor, give it about 20 inches of wheel travel, ride it 150 mph... and then we'll cut ya a little slack :)

acarter920- be careful what you ask for, pro mx quads have 18 inches of travel, some quads do have turbo's and nitro's, custom built of course, and Cannnondale does make the fuel injected 400cc thumper, now the top speed your asking for may be a bit of a challenge though. Your expectations may be met sooner than you wish.

Yeah, and those are sweet! I love a long travel screamer of a quad... and the manufacturers are finally getting over all the lawsuits from the early 90's and putting a little more R&D into quads now. They are getting nicer, but they're still not quite up to par with the modern dirtbikes. Just my opinion though :)

See..dirt bikes have their positive things. And quads also have theirs. Like the 18"of travel,nitro,N.A.S,and much more. They are not just lame little 'ol buggies.
