1st race in the YXZ

https://youtu.be/a0pdb9wSiIE
heres a link to my 1st SxS race. Some of it anyway, it got a little muddy. IXCR Round 1 @ Badlands. It was my first SxS race, 21 in my class (801+ SxS Heavy Pro...I'm not claiming to be a pro thats just what they call it), pi** poor holeshot about 18th i think...rolled it on lap 4, that cost us 1:10 and finished on a rear flat tire (at least the whole last lap) and finished 4th a slightly more modified YXZ won the race. 2 YXZs in top 4 out of 21 in our class....with a little better driving on my part it could of been top 2. I'll throw some pics in the gallery when i get a chance.

Saw you took a few hits in the beginning when everyone was scrambling. Going to add some body protection in the future?
And great race!

yea my start was embarrassing, its a dead engine start and apparently most ppl start they're engine when he raises the green flag not when he drops it...now I know for next time. and they started us 21 wide...bigger races like the GNCC will do like 5-6 wide. Wish I had more clean footage, once we got out of traffic, figured out the course and into my groove we were moving pretty good. As for body protection...No I'm just going to get a better start lol. The thing took a beating from start to finish (1 hour 14 minutes) with no mechanical issues...(lets hear that from a stock Polaris owner) Most of the other machines had sheet metal (fixed) doors, cage mods and rock sliders/nerf bars which i like..they keep you from catching the rear tire a little on trees, roots, rocks, etc in tight sections.
