Trophy Quad Compliation Page Share

Trophy Quad-  My definition is: A quad that has an awesome suspension with lots of wheel travel and big horsepower.  Something like this would dominate in the SCORE and BITD series (as Greg Stuart and Nic Granlund have proven in BITD).  There are quite a few sections where if you had the horsepower you could hit well over 100mph and with a badass suspension you could fly through the whoops in San Felipe.  I starting compling this list in early 2010 based on old threads I was able to find on race dezert and from people like Ed Teixeira.

This page has a compliation of quads with wild and wacky ideas for getting big wheel travel.

For product ordering information contact James here.  I made contact with this company in 2011 and became friends with the owner.  I was able to race an X travel frame at the Parker 250 and I was impressed.  You can read about it here.
