You guys new the Cannondale was a dry sump engine right? Well, Cannondale decided up a pretty crafty trick to do with their hollow alluminum frame, the circulate the oil through the frame on it?! That is wicked.

Re: DW TEST, RAPTOR IS #1.

the reason the banshee does bad is because it is an old machine and dirtwheels only likes new machines....the tests in atv action showed the times on the mx track were faster on the banshee than on the 400ex and ds 650..they just didnt make a big deal out of it because as everyone knows banshees are ill handling pigs and it is imposible to controll the power..haha whatever..i might get one this weekend...man but can i make myself trade the trusty ole warrior....

Re: DW TEST, RAPTOR IS #1.

That is sad :-( Cause i know that just b/c those r new atvs, the banshee is a lil hated on... even though its probably the best quad out there. I think they havent changed it b/c if nothing is wrong with it... dont change it. Except when it comes to aftermarket parts. And you know with all the aftermarket parts for banshee, if they put them on there (to where it would cost the same as Raptor or cannondale) it would diffentaly kick.

Re: DW TEST, RAPTOR IS #1.

Since ive owned a Banshee, i have always seen in the mags, how they down play the Banshee.

They always show photos of people riding Banshees flipping over, stuck, or bending axles.

The mags always tout the negatives of the Banshees like NO low end torque, stiff throttle, trash suspension, poor suspension geometry, ect....

How bout how killer the mid to top end hit is and how that makes it an excellent duner? How bout with a twist throttle, it is easy on the hands.....wider arms.ect....Oh thats right, we are comparing stock machines right? Well, i think i should stop talkin if thats the case. Everybody modifies Banshees, so i think there are alot of different angles to look at it from.

here is a pic of the article in Dirt wheels on the Banshee, I thought it was pretty cool even if the Banshee came in last
