Honestly the only thing keepin u from beating him is ur not sticking to the ground. Being able to keep it on the ground without letting out, u would have beat him no problem.

Tires to hard of a compound or to much air would make it harder to hook up also. He looked like he was running a smaller tire for like MX.

Where I ride its rougher than u can imagine and there's rocks jutting out and tree stumps and rutts from those monster can ams that tear the crap out of the trails lower psi helps alot and still don't think I have my stock shocks set up properly either can't seem to find a detailed tutorial on those

dales are no joke, it's not a whole lot to get 50+ out of them. especially since you're generally already in the motor

Looked like a very short race.. 150-200 ft ? That short of a race traction and holeshot are key. I bet with some 22 inch Cheng Shin knobbys on blue labels you will gain a few lengths. They expand well, hook good, and are lighter than the stock 20's. I experimented with a few tire setups until I needed a wheelie bar and swing arm extension.
