PostSubject: Very Muddy Harescramble Tips   Sat Mar 05, 2011 6:41 pm

Tomorrow ill be entering the most muddy hare scramble there is .
Ittl be close - the area has had 4 inches of rain according to a local .
Its a muddy area already called the Rooks.
Down near summerville ga .
Anyone have any tips ?
The hardest thing is going to be passing all the stuck sport quads --- ill be hanging way way back if i see a bottle neck- whoever gets through the bottle neck will win this thing.
Ok should i tape in front of my Rad? To try and keep mud out ???
I put my 25 big horns on so ill be the widest and the tallest bike there - and i have equal HP to that baddest rascer there .He will proably be on super grips - which dont get no traction in mud at all so i might sneak a hole shot .
I was second in hole shot last race - im thinking i should stiffen the shocks alittle bit .Notreally sure - maybe keep the rebound high
Ive got roll off goggles so thats good and i got those big bag like hand covers .
Ive heard to spray the bike down with silicone or WD 40 this supposedly makes the mud not stick.
I just dont knwo anything other than im proably not ready for this style .
It will be four consecutive 9 mile laps no break no rest jsut pinning it .
We 4 wheel drive bikes will have the advantage for sure but its real easy to get stuck behind a bottle neck and just one time you get stuck behind stuck sport quads the competition you worked so hard to pass catched up to you .
Nearvous already . real nearvous .....

I'd put some kind of screen in front of the rad. What supergrips is your competitor running? I have the superlites and they grap pretty dang good just running around. Not knocking you assesment just curios really. Good luck, bring home the gold.

I woke up about 2 am with a loud boom .
We had no power untill a few mins ago - so i missed the race .
My Well gets real bad in floods and its flooding .
So i had to stay here - get the power on and get the well in order - we have had times where mud got in our lines in the house - Talk about a Mess.
I installed an industrial sock filter system which solved those problems but it can fill easy after a flood and my well moter dont like that .
And i Do Not like changing my well moter Its 300 feet down.
Oh well its proably a good thing as the real deal race is next weekend and my quad is wide .
I have some OMFs that will be here wed which will bring my width down to 46 - very important when threading trees at 35 ....
So next week will be the first day ever that ill bhe on my bike and the bike will be 100 % built right - Im psyched -

Yes Boot i raced t several times got second and a third place .

This coming weekend is GNCC so we shall see where i stack up against the big dogs .
Im hoping for 7th.

Hey Jug - well pin it to win it is great advice in a drag race .
Man im threading the needle with this quad - some of these trees are only 48 inches apart .
And there is NO WAY around - they do that alot .
I wisdh i had the skill to hit narrow openings at 30 mph even .
But i dont - the more narrow the bike the better .My Outlander will not go under 46.5.
Thats as narrow as i can get it - this is with OMF wheels - flipped to the skinny side .
In other words you got most of the width of the wheel over your spindles .
They make the races tight- Mid South and Mid East and OMA are even worse .
i measured a tree opening with a tape measure on a track that had a way around but at a cost of 20 seconds or so - it was 46 inches .
So my KQ could fo through it but not my Outlander .
The Southeast is known for its super tight harescrambles - no telling how many broken thumbs we are producing per year .
Its crazy man.
Good news is my suspension is working very very well - i can pound over big rocks and - yeah i feel it - but i dont go over the handle bars .

I need a really good mechanic to help me with clutching .
I have a stm - supreme tools machine - clutch
the mega Rage 8 and i have air dams CVtech clutch .
The combo i hear thats the best is the stm secondary with his primary with 18 gram weights.
That is what he figures for my smaller 25 inch tires and the 79 TWHP tested on a dyno on the wheel---- not the crank shaft .
Im needing someone who understands this stuff and can work it into the best possible clutching possible .
I have incredible power from 0 to 80 but only if I PIN IT TO WIN IT .
My crusing rpms are 4500 but -
MY problems are all around 2 mph to say 10 mph .
Like going aroind a tree - going through scoring - just about anytime im al most at a stop and then i have to ride up to 20 MPH but do it slowly .
This thing want to just go all out and go fats or not go .
Airdam is helping but i need alittle more help and i need one part .
Unfortunatly i need this by friday LOL.
Ill race it again and with the suspension chnages sososos Good im expecting great results .
I havent had it air born yet - Need to do that soon and see how she flys and how she lands .
So far i havent had any problems keepin the front end up in a renegade or and outlander .
Saterday has somes jumps but they have alternative paths for us guys driving the big quads ,"
Boot ???? Couldnt you do this ????
