Does anyone still use the mighty 400ex as a desert racing machine or is it's 15 minutes of fame over?

The 400EX is a great machine, I have not seen many in the desert racing scene. The only problem with Desert racing them is when you get to the high speed sections it falls short.

I think they have an aircooled class, so you'd probably see a few raced under that catagory. I know people race 200cc blasters across the desert in the air cooled class.

Whiplash did not when I raced with them, the CORE series in Colorado does not. Very possible other Series do.

Went to a local mx event this past saturday and a guy was riding a 400ex. He had the stock suspension on it and was actually doing very well against the 450's. It was a small indoor track but I was impressed at the 400.

Anything is possible with a good rider, I highly recommend upgrading the suspension. Good suspension will shave more time off of your lap time than a fully built motor.
