    If you dont want to sh*t yourself or have the front end raise in every gear you have chosen the 3 bikes that do everything you dont want them to do LMAO I have a 660 and if you get on that bike hard, that thing is springing into a wheelie no problem even in 3rd-4th gear... Banshee same thing if its a bit worked, Raptor 700 same thing my cousin has it. If you want an excellent trail bike I'd recommend an Ltz-400...

    My dad rides the 660 and he loves it he loves wheelieing it and everything hes a trq fanatic lol he loves having all the power under his thumb...

    Even then man idk the raptors are very torquey in the low gears, I know my 660 in first and second is very jumpy if you punch the throttle a little harder... I mean its very fun, but like I said earlier your best choice would probably be the 660 to avoid electrical fuel injection issues, but since you ride tight trails like I said I reccomend to LTZ-400.. but if you dont want the 400 go for the 660.

    Whats wrong with the Blaster in your sig? The 660 an 700 are beasts in tight trails,the blaster will kill either of them in a tight trail. Unless your a hell of a rider those big bikes are like tring to nogotiate a refidgerator around a corner. Just my .02

    700, it isn't as top heavy as the 660. has a better gear ratio. has better suspension.

    i rode a buddy's 660 a couple time. it really sucked in the trails. 1st gear was too tall. if you go to slow and it dies, it will stop in its tracks and you might go over the bars.

    test drove a 700 and it was way better. but both these quads are for bigger heavier riders. like people in the 200+ range. if you are lighter, and under 6', these quads will be a handle full because of the size and the suspension will be stiff for you.

    Honestly if you want a tight trail.quad.... 300ex. 400ex ltz/dvx400 yes 300ex isnt fast but there comfortable and very trail friendly... 660s are to tall top heavy and to narrow... 700 is the better of the.animals but thats alot of power for tight trails. One wrong blip of the throttle and you will end up hangin out in a tree with the squirrels
