The far quad in the pic is one of our drag ATV's. The quad was primarily used for bracket racing, but in this pic it was being used for heads-up/grudge racing.

I did the initial research, development, building & testing of our NHRA legal 1/4 mile drag ATV. The project started around 2005. Around 2015 I gave all the quad stuff to my son's.

Anyway, the main drag quad is coming home to dad. It will be reconfigured primarily for 1/8-mile heads-up racing. I might swing my leg over the seat for some testing, but it's primarily for my youngest son to race again.

Not directed at you specifically Goob. A properly built drag ATV is a very quick straight-line performer. Most people take them for granted on their ET & the #1 comment is "that's cute". Our comeback is always "wait till you see cute run".

Anyway, our quad in the pic is a Yamaha Banshee with a bored & stroked 443cc twin on race gas. The quad ran low 6's in the 1/8th & 10.0's in the 1/4.

The performance example was old school times & doesn't hold a candle to what they are doing now with them!

This slip is from an import event at Orlando Dragway about a month or so ago. It's funny how he didn't even want to share any info about it.
