Here's a couple pictures of me pulling the holeshot at last weeks TQRA event at Cooperland. I'm in the 30+ class on my 505sx that I only put together the day before. The only mods are a FMF slip on that comes with the ready to race package, JD jetting kit and some bad smelling 92 octane pump gas. A couple of Sparks built Honda riders wanted to know who built my engine. They couldn't beleive it was stock and not even broke in yet, only .2 on my hour meter.

Yep, other racers are not seeing the big picture with the ktm. It's not only power that matters, its power/weight ratio and in that matter, KTM is unbeatable ;)

Do you still have the white '08, or was that a trade for the 505SX? How was the 4-Werx at the sandbox? What kind of jetting changes did you do to the SX? Holeshot looked awesome, great job, gonna miss you up here.

Yes, still have the Drg powered FourWerx 540xc. I'm thinking that's going to be my duner, almost too pretty to mx, although it certainly could be.

Dave, jetting changes were strictly what the instructions were in the JD kit. It was a touch fat on the main jet but otherwise great, I reccomend the kit for your 450sx. TrEw just put two kits in his 450's. (he's so fast he needed two!) When you need more power, just add a pipe, have Drg do the head and add a Cp piston. Chad you're gonna stay busy building building honda's to keep up with these Katooms! JK, you're awesome, you're probably gonna do my head anyway.....

I just realized I didn't finish my story, I got the holeshot in the second moto even though I missed my upshift to 3rd twice. I won both moto's and got the overall.

Like Brad says: Blah Blah Blah my 505 is awesome...Blah Blah Blah I love my new Ktm.....
