As far as suspension is concerened yes long travel for the front, but not the back. If you run long travel in the rear you have to get the linkage lengthener thing for the rear. The linkage the the bottom of your rear shock mounts to is already very low. If you through long travel on there it's...
I've ran a LTR450 since 2007 with Vorra.
Tires: Run as big as possible. I'm using ITP XTC 23" Fronts and 22" Rears with ITP Baja rims. One set lasted me about 600 miles.
Skid Plates: This is going to be the single most important thing you do to your LTR. There is a major reason why. The...
Since Vorra.net doesn't work so well I thought I'd repost it here.

I had a Saturday school one time in High School on a race weekend. My dad picked me up from School with my race truck in tow and made it out just in time for tech. Good times. :)

Tristan and I were talking about this too. I think channel 31's morning show came out like 10 years ago one morning the week before the race and some of them got rides.
Joe and Craig on 98 rock in the afternoon are pretty big gear heads and I'm sure if someone offered them a ride they'd talk...
Entering a race cheap is one thing, being competitive for cheap is another.
1450 is probably the cheapest upfront cost but it's going to take some coin to start being competitive there... well anywhere.
Did some research and it looks like 2007 5% of Sand Mountain was closed for the Blue Butterflys. The Fallon Paiute Shoshone Tribe was one of the investors paying for the research and land closures. That is the most recent information I have on this.
Why Sand Mountain is important.
The jump is about 1/2 a mile from the Weeks dry lake bed. When you are standing on the peak it isn't so bad but when you are aproaching it at any kind of speed it looks like a 6 foot wall. When we were doing some testing on Mike's new truck last summer everyone was telling Troy that he could...
The last few times I've been to PC the rangers at the gate just check to see if you have one. Sometimes on race day I've seen the ranger go around and actually run the green sticker to make sure it's legit. They are also sticking rods down the pipes of ATV/Bikes to check for spark arrerestors as...
