He claims that this speed pass is real. I would have to see it for myself.

I would want to see what a radar gun comes up with. I don't think it is designed to go over 100mph. ?

Read the comments, that's most likely a sled doing that. I can buy that a whole lot more than a quad.

K Im calling major BS on this one - this quad was introduced last year and AC has not used an ANALOG odometer in YEARS.

definitely a sled...you can't accelerate like that on a quad/belt.

It is a sled, you can hear it is a 2 stroke. And sleds are belt driven too.
