Got back yesterday from the race just outside of Flagstaff, in the Cinders OHV area. Whiplash put on a good race, although the course markings were tough to follow most of the time.

Unfortunately, there was a nearby forest fire that forced them to have to cut the 25 mile loops down to a 10 mile loop. But they ran the race for 2 hours, so distance wasn't a question.

For those of you that have never been to the Cinders, the entire area is a lot like the dunes, except there are trees, and instead of sand, it is like kitty litter. Black kitty litter. Due to it being like sand, and that it is a public OHV area, the entire place is mostly whoops!!!! Little ones, big ones, wide ones, short ones, etc, etc, etc.

There were 22 UTVs set to race. I was registered in the Pro-modified class. I started 5th with 30 second seperation between each person to start. By the end of the 1st lap (about 18 minutes) I was right behind the first rig to start! I quickly passed him and never looked back. I eventually won (7 laps) by 11 minutes. I was about 2 minutes faster than the next fastest UTV.

It was a great race and the Revolt did awesome.

Broken parts were:
Bent upper A-arm heim at knuckle (Ran into a tree stump!)
Bent steering heim at knuckle (happened as same time as above)
Ripped CV boot (pretty sure I hit a root sticking up)
Exhaust broken from rig (fell off and I ran 1 hour open exhaust!!!)

Go Redline!!!

Now that I am learning how to drive (I get better and better with each race) and I am getting smarter with my pitting schemes.........I am firmly convinced that there is no UTV (800cc and under) that can beat a Revolt as long as I don't break. I plan to put that to the test the rest of this year and into a BITD race next year (if money permits).

I had a plan to mount a camera to my helmet......but decided against it 10 minutes before the race. Because 75% of the course was whoops I didn't want to add more weight to my head and make my neck even MORE sore than it was going to be!

And no..........don't think I have ever posted any pics of my rig. I will try to do that over the next few days........but to be honest, it doesn't look much more different than stock! :cool:

I've had the same neck pain, after a day of riding. I now use a neck brace. I found a used one on eBay for $8.00. New ones are under $40.

I use something similar. And I STILL have a tired neck by the end. :( 2 solid hours of whoops will do it every time!
