post the mods you have on your ds450, post your opponents quad & mods, and whether you win or lose.
i have raced a stock 2008 honda 450r & stock 2007 suzuki z400. i beat them both. the z400 ran closer to me than the 450r did.

Did you beat them drag racing or on the track? It moslty depends on rider skill then the machine. I got a 3 mod 400z and beat lesser skilled riders on 450s. The ds is a fast quad and I've beaten a couple 3 mod 450s on the track and at the drags.

ya, it was a drag race in the sand. i think the reason the z400 kept up better is because i was spinning out everytime i shifted.

Anyone beat a 3 mod raptor 700? I raced a couple with no luck, but i think alot of people lie about their mods.

today i didn't fare too good... got roosted by a kfx450, kfx700 and a warrior w/ an r6 motor. the two kfx were fully modded, so i didn't feel bad eating their roost.
