I had fun last weekend racing against this one Cannondale at the Florence Oregon Dunes. I was across the valley, and saw a bunch of 4 strokes racing up comp hill..... I scooted over there to see 3 400ex's and a couple of Cannondales drag racing. This red and black one was murdering the others. He had a really loud race pipe on it, and was running fresh haulers as he'd throw major roost. This guy was taking all others by at least 5-8 quad lengths repeatedly........so guess who I was out for? Soooooooo, I pull down and line up with the whole group........I get a great start and me and the red/black C-dale pulled away from the pack and were neck and neck all the way up with me just taking him by 1/2 quad length........ All the other guys stopped racing, and just starred at me looking stunned. I pull down to the line again, and only the red/black one joins me.......all the others stayed up top of comp hill to watch. 2nd race, I wheelie it off the line blowing the start, yet still pull the hill neck and neck with him, too close to call....... 3rd race. Neck and Neck again, and mid-hill the C-dales starts popping badly like a CDI box stutter or something. I took that race, but by default as he had problems....... Soooooooo, I had my fun, and my buddies were taking off so I left with them, mean-while all the other 400ex and C-dale riders just sat there stunned........... GREAT showing for Polaris! It ran real real strong all weekend long without a single hick-up or falter. My Dune Mods? Sand Skate II's, 13/38 gears, 170 main jet, W/B exhaust, Carb mount K&N. Simply AWESOME for a stock quad other than a slip on exhaust and a K&N!!! Heapster

Wow, awesome story!!! I love hearing stuff like that.

I haven't seen any Cannondales out at Sand Mountain in Nevada for quite a while. The one that was there fairly regularly belongs to a friend, but he blew it up a while back (something about a piece of the cam shooting through the valvecover -- ended up being a factory defect).

I'm eager to get my carb cleaned up and try the clamp-on filter, especially with another friend putting his Raptor back together with a 686 kit in it.
