Hotrods has come up with a very good stroker crank for the warrior/rap350. It only has a 7mm stroke, but still strokes the motor up to 396cc. This setup requires no machining, has a much stronger rod, much stronger bearings, runs on 10.5 compression, and will rev up quicker than the other kits out there. The only downside is the piston is a raping 250, but the total for the parts is still only 650, very cheap compared to machining the stock crank. A stronger rod and bearings is a must if your gonna go apeshit with mods, which hardly anyone makes for the warrior motor nowadays. Check the **** out:

I got the 3rd issue of a newer magazine out called "Quad" it is a pretty decent magazine. However the only have 6 issues a year. A subscription is 9.97 for a year which is the price of 2 magazines at the store.

Off topic I know. But I thought I would share it.

Yeah the issue I got came with a 4 page poster. One side has the yfz450 with some nasty slut on it and the other side has a 450r wheelie on it. I like the "quad" more then the others. But that is my opinion.

And usually color is more expensive, but like I said a year subscription is like 9.97 and that is for 6 issues. The issues sale for like 5 bucks on the stands. Its worth it for sure.

Does anyone know anything about HotRods?

Their website just seems a little fishy to me. Most company's will have independant write-ups/ articles, etc.
I realize this is a new product, but there is no suppporting information for the claims they are making regarding the kit.

Also, they claim no machining is necessary, yet ther FAQ states:
Does all of the extra 50cc of displacement come from the stroke only?
No, some of the increase comes from an increased bore.

This is definitely a unique approach, but something just doesn't sit right with me on it.

I hate the girls in the magazines. I wish they weren't even there. I get quad and mini truckin and the girls are a waste of space. I get maxim to look at the girls. Pisses me off when a slut has to mess up a perfectly good picture. Thats my .02, I doubt anyone has my same opinion on that topic. I know must of my friends that come over to look at the magazines look for the girls.
