what do you guys use on the race quads

twist throttle vs thumb throttle?

Also i hear it you use a twist throttle you may lose control a bit more?

When I 1st started riding quads I used a twist then bought my own which came with thumb. Thumb'n is easier but twisting is less tiring!

I asked this not to long ago, put a twist on and love it.

First day i wont lie i was very sketchy on slower sections and some berms. But the next ride was so natural feeling, whoops feel ten times better and its just a better and more aggressive feel.

twist all the way!

I don't race yet, but i've been trying to do practice every other week. Anyhow, i picked up the "terry cable dual gasser", an ingenius little setup that gives me thumb and twist with the pull of a pin.

JMO, twist sucks. I can understand the idea of using it for desert racing where you might not make a tight corner.

Twist all the way, from wide open to technical, never had a problem. I only use the 1/4 turn also, half turn is to hard to go from closed to fully open with out regriping. If I had to ride with a thumb throttle, I would stop riding!

It'll take some time to get used to it but if you're gonna race for hours in the desert than I think twist is the way to go.

I have the Terry dual gasser and love it.I can use whichever I like.Just have to be sure to let off of the twist before you start using the thumb.
