    Carbon EX vs. top fuel 9 for racing

    I'm an Xterra racer. The trails and courses are typically pretty rough. What is everyone's opinion on racing the EX. I realize the top fuel is a race ready rig, but would the EX slow me down that much?

    I wouldn't think so of course I had this debate as well Top Fuel vs EX I decided on the EX 9.8 we have some ruff single track and the EX will eat it up all day long.. If you’re a die hard racer then the obvious choice is the Top Fuel

    The Top Fuel can be a little twitchy in really technical stuff. It is fast, but the EX I rode was plenty fast too and would be much more confidence inspiring.
