I pre-ran the Hawthorne race (55 mile loop) with the Commander last weekend. The Muzzys exhaust and DigiTune Pro worked perfect. The tuning seemed spot-on and the exhaust is very quiet with the whisper cores.

Congrats Crowdog!... ditto on how your experience in prerunning with the Commander? I know its a stock XT.... and not a race prepped prerunner...I was planning on racing the Baja 1000 this year (on a bike) but a sponsor pull out and and injury to my knee has me thinking of taking my X down and doing some prerunning down the course some out of Ensenada... and see if racing UTV is something Id be interested in (especially now that Im turning 49 in another week) thoughts?

Well, How did you do in the Race?
Pulled off a first place finish. They course was pretty rough. Lots of rocks, cross grain terrain, deep sand, blinding silt and some high speed sections.

The Commander did pretty well. Ate up the sand and silt no problem. Stock shocks are not up to running hard in this terrain. Need more capacity. And I got one flat which is not able to be repaired. The 14" Bighorn 2.0 are not the best choice of tire for pre-running.

Now I think racing a Commander 1000 in the desert would be awesome. Just leave the engine stock, add Muzzys exhaust and DigiTune, +4" or +5" long travel, fuel cell, cage and the other safety stuff and run it. It will be a great platform.

BITD needs to clarify their rules for the 1000cc Commander. I think they spell out the Prowler by name in the rules. Needs to be generic and clear.

but...but...but your so close to being the young dude in the Super Senior class :unsure:
Trust me...Im still thinking I may have a race or two left in me..especially for the shorter races like the Parker 250 etc...problem is for the longer Baja races (the 500 and 1000) its hard coming up with enough 50ish racers to put together a team...but its still on my agenda...I will always love riding..Im just not very fast.
