I have had both and stock for stock in a drag the 2 quads are very close. There is no easy winner and rider ,weight/ablity will be the winning factor. In the drags i have run, around 300ft the pred usually wins by a length at the most. Have had them out on the track and must say the Predator takes the gold here for sure.
my predator must be one of kind i dont no. all i did to it was put a pipe on it and a k&n filter and i can out run a raptor very easy. all so if we have real long stretch raptor will just keep on falling back.
i all so got a vforce with hmf dual pipes sound so good it will raise the hair on your neck. the pipes did give it more power. i have a hoped up scrambler that would out run my 700 after i put the pipes on it they are side by side
Perhaps the raptor drivers you ran also couldn't drive, propolaris.. The raptor isn't the easiest bike to launch. Predator is much easier. No wheelies. that's a 2 way statement. we'll be out racing this weekend. i'll see if i can grab a video camera. i'm real interested to see how much of a difference the airforce kit that i put on my buddy's quad makes.
if you think the predator wont wheelie your sadly mistaking where we race you get traction. if both bikes are stock it dont matter any way. the predator will pull on the raptor. we race all the way to top end we dont just go to third gear. the raptor is a good bike i just like polaris better. the predator is better for racing no doubt about it. you can make any atv fast if you want to spend the money.we just race for the fun of it a good close race is more fun.
