Just bought an 07 Raptor 700 a couple weeks ago and have been riding in the trails and sand pits which has been fun.

I drag race motorcycles so it was only natural that I would look to try and race my quad so I took it to the mx track today to see how it felt.

I took my time around the track to get used to it and it felt like something that I would enjoy doing. What mods are needed to set up a 700 for Racing? So far it appears that I should go with 20 inch tires in the front and 18 inch tires in the back but is there any other standard mods that I should get?

I was having a hard time sliding the rear end in the turns but I don't know if I just need more air pressure or if the 18 inch tires would help.

Here's a video of my first couple laps around the track. Thanks

Also wanted to know if it's worth it to set my 700 up for the track or if I should just keep it for the trails and buy a YFZ450 for the track.

You would be better off sticking to the trails and 300ft with the 700. The yfz 450 would be idea for the mx style of racing due to it be lighter, and fast reving and wider.
