Gee, that seems a bit unfair. We have been working pretty hard on the Raptor kit for months. But please keep in mind that our limited manpower is divided among many forms of racing and types of engines. We spent a lot of time on the YFZ-450 because a _lot_ of racers buy those cranks. We get far fewer Raptor cranks.Maddog56 said:Basically not a machine they focus on in the least.
That was basically my point. The raptor has been out for 3 more years than the yfz, 2 more than the predator, and about 3.5 years longer than the trx450. The raptor has always had an inherently weak rod from day one.MasterOfGoingFaster said:But if you mean that we are dragging on our development of the kit, I'd agree. We do have many stroked Raptors running around, we just don't have a complete kit at this point. We have a big bore/stroker Raptor being tested, but that takes months. Once we have a design we are happy with, we have to tool up for production. That takes time - and money.
