If you are a go fast guy, maybe the highlifter isn't quite the right choice...

DAMN - my red prototype 850 doing only 66mph... but maybe that's good / maybe I'll live longer

55 mph, 7,700 rpm. Tough to do that in mud, tho.

must modify

Riders like to quote their top speed but forget to say the altitude that was at. Difference between sea level and 10'000 feet can be as much as 10 MPH. And tire size will make a big difference also.

In this case altitude will not affect top speed because it's rpm limited, the quad will reach top rpm regardless of altitude. And going to a 2 inch bigger tire only gets you about 2mph more
