My oppinion

. Which dragon or dragons are very good at racing?

-Nadder

-Stormcutter (when they fix the glitch)

-Gronkle

-Death

-Changewing

-Skrill

-Toothless

-Smokebreath

. Which dragon is the best to you?

-Stormcutter when glitch is fixed, but for now it's either Death or Nadder

. If you could have any dragon (In SOD) for racing, which would it be?

-hmm......same answer as #2 XD

. Which dragon or dragons have very good acceleration, turn, and speed?

Acceleration-Nadder, Smokebreath, Gronkle, and Death

Turn-Nadder, Smokebreath, Death, Toothless, Gronkle, and Stormcutter

Speed-all of the ones exept nadder (that one is good if you want to get going fast and use items to stay ahead) and yes, surprisingly the gronkle is very fast for some reason (very unrealistic huh?)

 

 

hope this helps! (also, i do not own a changewing so idk the stats on that, but i've heard that it is an amazing racer as well)

Viking: Lunar Vixen

Clan: None

Main Dragon: Echo (Stormcutter/Male) 

Secondary Dragon: Toxic (Deadly Nadder/Female)

Alt. main: Eclipse (Nightstinger/Male)

My Website: https://beacons.page/lunarvixen

 

do not steal anything from this signature!!!

 

 

MyDragons:

 

1. Echo = A large stormcutter, slightly bigger then Cloudjumper.  He is very strong and fast for his species. He is very loyal to his rider. He has a bit of an attitude, and doesnt show much emotion. He is a big sweetheart but finds showing it off to be embarassing. He is only goofy acting and silly when alone with his rider or Toxic. 

2. Toxic = my oldest and longest owning dragon.  She is more playful than even stormfly...and thats saying a lot.  She is just about as competitive and trains hard.  She is quite smart and very quick on her feet.  She is a great tracker and loves to take long, nighttime flights.  

 

3. Blackout = a rather bad boy character... well he tries to be. He is really quite lovable, but tries to be tough and brutal. He is very standoffish and doesn’t trust people easily. He mostly runs from them and will attack if they follow. He is wild at heart, but sometimes let’s his rider take him for a spin... but be careful of being zapped.

 

4. Eclipse = (a nightfury/speed stinger mix). despite being a fearsome dragon species, he is extremely playful and loves to be petted. His personality has two sides to it, the playful friendly side for his friends and children, then the deadly protective side when anyone is in danger. He has a slight fear of thunderstorms and prefers to be inside during them. He loves the rain, but not during thunder. He has all of the abilities of a nightfury and a speed stinger.

6. Nightwhisper = a female nightlight whom performs medical opperations in battle. She saves injured animals and gets them to safety.  She is very intellegent, wild, and creative.  She loves to draw on the ground and will get mad at you if you step on them.  If you try to get on her back she will buck you off, she hates being ridden by most people.  She loves to fly alone and do tricks in the sky. Whisper is mostly nocturnal, but will go out at daytime. She is the second generation daughter of Toothless and the Lightfury.  She is very rebellious, but loves her family dearly. She is very cat like but is as loyal as a dog.

7. Lucian = he is a lightfury/sandwraith/changewing hybrid.  His main firepower is a strong acid that can even go through metal.  He also has very weak plasma blasts.  He can turn invisible, swim well, and buries under the sand. He is overall very lazy and loves to just lay around and soak up the sun.  He will only attack if provoked.  He is overall quite friendly with humans, but can be a bit territorial.  He does often shed his skin to keep himself fresh and new.  He is a bit of a prankster when he wants to be.  He loves to also float in the water. If you wish to find him, walk along a beach during the day and you will prob find him there!

 

8. Caspian = night whisper's mate. He is an aquatic lightfury whom prefers swimming over flying. He is large for his breed and brave. He is also a bit wreckless and silly. 

9. Whirlpool = a scauldron whom loves to swim and help fisherman catch fish. He is very friendly and outgoing for his species. 

10. Frostflight = a very lonely lightfury. she lives a life of solitude and is too skeptical to let anyone into her life. Everyone she loved either died or abandoned her. She gets lonely often and spends her time drawing in the dirty, hanging out with animals, or climbing. 

11. Scorpio = a stubborn hard headed dragon made after the Scorpio astrology sign. He is everything that they are. 

12. Ghost = the son of Caspian and Nightwhisper. He is moreso a lightfury then a nightfury.  He has all of the abilities of a lightfury and can swim well like his father.

13. Adler = Toxic's mate. He is very hot headed, but kind and tempered around Toxic. He likes to always be in charge, and gets grumpy if he isnt. However, he makes a great leader when in charge.

Which dragon or dragons are very good at racing?

In my opinion Changewings are THE BEST. They're very fast, but they're so easy to control that it can be easy to lose control. Be aware of that! Skrills are good at racing, same with Zipplebacks (one of these babies with a sleek saddle is impossible to beat) and Deadly Nadders.

 

Which dragon is the best to you?

Hands down Changewings and Zipplebacks are the best. But if your skilled, you can win with any dragon.

 

If you could have any dragon (In SOD) for racing, which would it be?

LOOOL I have them all XD But the boneknapper, i'm debating on getting on whether i should get one or not :P

 

Which dragon or dragons have very good acceleration, turn, and speed?

Speed - Skrill, Changewing, Zippleback

Acceleration - Gronckle, Deadly Nadder

Turn - Gronckle, Changewing

I've won against Skrills with my Changewing. Trust me, they are the best XD ^^ I beat a lot of records first time around the tracks with her :) Zipplebacks are good too! Skrills and Nadders are good, but not the best in my opinion.

Changewing sounds good. :) Would you consider the stormcutter a good racer? What about the Nadder? Because it's in your icon pic. XD

I've never raced with a Stormcutter because of the invisible wall issue :) Nadders are good. LOL Raefor was my first dragon and the reason I love Nadders since i didn't like them much when I got him (starter dragon) plus he's in a fanfic so thats why he's my profile pic :3

For starter dragons,

For starter dragons, essentially any of those dragon can be a good racer as long as they have a saddle (you could win, but then you'll have to have lots of speed boosts/skill/knowledge in shortcuts people don't know/or racing against newbies). Zipplebacks are the best in my opinion of starters.

 

I've also heard that changewings are really good at racing, especially wooly canon. Skrills are also nice, but their accelleration is low. Previously they were on par (i think) with toothless, however I think changewings beat them this time :) 

 

So either get a zippleback with saddle (preferably sleek) or a changewing :)

My Adopts <3

 

Banshee. Despite her dark look, she's a fun loving dragon who likes rainbows and skittles. My represensitive dragon (me if I was a dragon :D). Drawn by Changeling. Blinkie by Mightnightmare and editted by me. Amazing egg animation by Rasvim1313. Toothless gif made by the awesome Reiraku (what would the OCs do without you). Blinkie by me (I forgot to change her eyecolour)

 

Catalyst, the Chemical Magician <3 Spicy and unpredictable, this nightfury creates a backstory of his own. Not that he'd share it. My OC drawn by Reiraku 

 

Banshee and Catalyst adorably playing together <3 Drawn by toothless572

 

Drawn by me. Description by the amazing Reiraku.

A sreech. A howl in the dark. A keening cry in the depths of the night. This was all that could be said about the destruction he left in his wake. A name? He had none. Was it important? A strong opponent. This was what he desired. Perhaps somewhere deep down inside, he simple longed to be stopped. But he yearned, and he fought. For what, it didn't matter. Alone as he had always been, he didn't care what became of those he defeated, only that they ended up dead after his passing. If they could not best him, they did not deserve to live. Even now, he stalked through darkness, tracking his next prey. The blood on his claws would not wash off, but he did not want it to. His soul was a cacophony of chaos, and his body an instrument of death.

Was it the result of some twisted past? Nay. He enjoyed the killing. He found sport in the shedding of blood. It was he that was twisted, cleaving a path of darkness into the future. He twisted his own past to justify his future. His mother, father, and the rest of the clutch into which he was born had been very caring. As he had grown, he found that, so too, did his resentment of them. When he grew large enough, he attacked his brothers and sisters, tasting their blood for the first time. And he relished the taste. His parents he made quick work of as well. It wasn't enough. He belonged to nothing and no one. He was beholden to none. He was free and he was dangerous.

 

No dragon was safe from his urges. He took no interest in the lives of others; only in their deaths. In this way he lived, fought, and grew, fighting and killing anything that appeared before him. Growing strong feasting on the thrill of each kill.

 

 

Storm Chasers are highly energetic speed-loving dragons. They love to swim in fast currents and fly with strong wind of the highlands. Storms are no problem to them. They follow the storm until it subsides, taking any food left from the destruction, which is sometimes from viking villages. Storm Chasers have incredible sensor that they could predict a storm coming and its path. 

Gender: Male

Personality: Naturally curious, likes to flick his tongue out when he's unsure of something. Gentle soul, loves belly rubs

Backstory: While out on a hunt with my dragons for wild forest animals, Catalyst and Banshee was playing as usual, and this time it seems they were play fighting each other. They look like a giant rolling ball of tumbleweed in the distance, if you ignore their playful dragon growls and nips. Shaking my head, I spent the next few hours collecting all the animal feathers and designs I needed, and on the way I caught a rabbit for dinner too. Just as I began walking back to my dragons, I heard a loud, angry growl in the distance that sounded nothing a small animal can make. I quickly rushed to where the sound was coming from, horrified to find that it was in the direction of where I last saw Banshee and Catalyst biting each other's ears (which was kind of cute, and made me stop for a while to watch them). Just as i got to the clearing, I saw Banshee and Catalyst in defensive stance, both growling at a male dragon that's semi-hidden in the bushes with what seem to be a bruised nostrel. They must've rolled into the bushes sometime during their fight and fell onto the dragon's nostrel, waking him up and surprising him! Approaching the dragon slowly, with my hands in front of me, I told my dragons to backdown as I tried to calm him down. After what seems like hours, the male dragon seemed to be calm enough to approach me with curiosity instead. I realized with a start that it was actually a Stormchaser, who seemed to have hurt it's legs somehow as it was slowly limping out of the bush. Carefully taking the shark pieces of rock from his foot (i wonder how he got hurt), the Stormchaser sniffed it's foot and tested it, before happily nudging my hand with it's head. I gave him a good scratch under his chin, and packed everything up ready to move back home when it seemed to follow us and didn't want to leave. Even as i rode Catalyst in the skies, the Stormchaser wasn't far behind, and I ended up adding him into out dragon family, and named him Peach. Design by ScarfyWings

 

Carnage, the Symbiote Night Fury. One of the rare nightfury species, he serves no one and nothing. Though I suspect he holds a much kinder side...

Drawn by Kyore. PIxel arts by Wutend Bonfire :D

 

This fiery night fury can summon and control all types of weather. Storm is from the deep south and will submit to no dragon or human. As she can control whether the skies are safe, even the alphas are afraid of her. Drawn by skypeoplephoenix732

 

"If you get any of what this skrill is dripping on you, you'll start seeing all kinds of things that aren't there." Toxin, the goofball that doesn't realize everybody knows she's stealing food from the pantry because there's pink goo everywhere she goes. Drawn by Reiraku

 

Tigger, the speed stinger. Not much for brains, but what he lacks in brains he makes it up with a large stomach. Drawn by Reiraku

Hong Cha (or Red tea in chinese), the chinese dragon. Drawn by Glacecia

 

Todachi was only a hatchling when his clan was destroyed and killed by humans in front of his eyes. The only survivor of a clan of forest dwellers, he has to fend for himself since a young age. He's nothing special, but he has a desire to survive which drives him forward.  When a viking found him in a cave while wounded in an aereal fight, Todachi helped the human tend to their wounds even though he still harbors hatered for them, because on the inside he has a gentle heart. The human was forced away the day after, and he still refuses to let anyone inside his cave save for the wounded. You would be lucky to see this him with your very eyes, as his natural camuflage makes him blend perfectly to his surrondings. He says he's not currently interested in any SPAM at the moment. Drawn by Reiraku

 

Carna, the hybid offspring of the Nightfury and Skrill. Likes to eat smores and snuggles in the fireplace. Only appears occationally when hungry, so no one knows where she is most of the time. Drawn by Reiraku

 

Adopted from Siren-Spirit

Morvan, the Dark Dragon. No one knows where he came from, and not many wants to know in fear of being brutally mutilated. The crimson blood on his scales is enough to tell even the blind to not mess with him. He never shows weakness no matter the enemy, but they know that he has some extensive history before he became known and the Dark Dragon. The wings along already hold a much more heavier burden to tell...

 

Crystalis, the rare white nightfury. She had a warm and kindhearted personality, and loves to collect jewels of all kind. Her scars are a mystery that she never tells. Drawn by skrillfan

 

Skylar, the nightfury born with the lightning mark. Drawn by Scoubidous

 

Gender: Male

Personality: Brave, Serious, Loyal, Strong Fighter

Special Notes: Scar, Take with care

Name: Kenshin (do you get the reference? :D)

Bio: Once known as one of the deadly assassins of the old age, now Kenshin is a recluse on the journey to live a peaceful life. However, he encounters a lot of old enemies and rivals that haven't forgotten of his bloody past, but he will not give up the simple life.

I would recommend the Zippleback or Changewing, depending on how you handle your keyboard. If you're heavy on the keys like me, then the Zippleback is probably better for you because they need a firmer hand to steer (also, people tend to underestimate their racing ability so you have the element of surprise >:D) Changewings are very good at turning, almost effortless, really easy to use speed boosts and make tight manouvres- but they need a light touch. If you apply too much pressure when trying to make a turn you're likely to crash into the wall.

Dont mean to brag, cause you ask for an opinion.

Since evry questions you ask looks the similar in every each of them I say ZIPPLEBACKS..!! Or if you would like to have a membership pack, I prefer TOOTHLESS...!! I have been learning a lot about racing with zipplebacks, in tact my zippleback is my very first dragon. I have since last year. And until now Hazor and Sparko, my zippleback has been my no. 1 dragon, and my main, and it'll be forever. I have a Skrill, and a Changewing, but zipplebacks is still what I used the most. First, their acceleration is very good, every time I raced with my zippleback, me, or other zippleback riders, is mostly in first race of the starting race, plus they have an awesome rate of speeds, so great acceleration and speed, this will help you a lot on winning races :)

 

But zipplebacks have kinda a bad, but trust me, if you get use to it, it'll be a find race you'll have with zipplebacks, plus the bad turning actually kinda helps you on taking over opponents, because of its speed ;)

I've tried comparing my zippleback with Changewings and Skrills,

Skrills :

They are fast dragons, Im impressed with their speed, and their turn rate is better than zipplebacks, I sometimes love using them to, but what I hate about Skrills is, their acceleration is hopeless, really, you dont want to use them in Forbidding Ice especially, this acceleration actually gaves you less chances of getting through rank one opponents.

 

Changewings :

Turn rate, acceleration, and speed, their great, turning rate is the best in Changewings, the lowest level in Changewings in racing is their pitch, and second is speed (I think) cause idk, first their fast in races, because pf theiir awesome acceleration

I think you'll like to take Boneknappers to, Boneknappers are speedy dragons to, good at accelerations, and turns, but pitch is the worst, not thay bad though, I use my Boneknapper all the time to. :)

So if you want to, you could try the Boneknapper to, Im sure you'll love them.

But I also still prefer zipplebacks more. Plus! Their cheap ;)

thunder drums are the best

thunder drums are the best they are the best racers in game 

 

​Stats:

Max Speed: 10

Pitch Rate: 7

Turn Rate: 8

Acceleration: 6

 

it is the best in most areas and is a cheap dragon to get to the best racer is the least expensive gem dragon siriously if you dont have one GET ONE NOW!!!!

 

this is amazing they just dont make dragon stats like they used to.....

 

 

its only flaw is acceleration and its not that bad why are you reading this and not buying a thunderdrum GO NOW

Hate to break it to yo, but the still make stats like they used to. Its clearly wrong about how they make of its pitch and acceleration. First I would give a Thunderdrums pitch as a 2 not a 7 Thunderdrums pitch is the worst in its stats. And acceleration should be 4 or 5 their accelerations are kinda like what I say about Skrills.

Hmm....... *thinks* I guess Thunderdrums could be one of the best racers to. They're bad pitch are smooth, comfortable, and speedy. Stormcutter12 Put Thunderdrums in your list to :)

Aren't you gonna try Boneknappers? Their awesome racers in my opinion.

 

Btw, if you wanna pick Skrills, I say watch out with their accelerations, their slow in start but as you went in rings you'll go boost out in a quick, you wouldn't like slow starts, especially when the rings are far ahead in the start of a race like I say Forbidding Ice tracks. Others will went pass you quick in Forbidding Ice (if youre racing with a challenging racer)

*burps*

I think my favorite racer is my Changewing, Grim.  I adore his turning and pitch rates, and his top speed is nothing to shake a stick at. I have FUN racing with him, and I really like how the Thunderdrum animations fit him so well.
He looks great!

Changewings are definetely a great dragon to race to, I'm surprised that their way better than Thunderdrums even thought they have Thunderdrum animations, their acceleration, turns, and pitch to, turns are the best of Changewings.

You're comparing stats aren't you, dont look at the stats look at real experiences. Sorry cause you look like youre comparing stats right there.

 

In my opinion skrills are way better than Whispering Deaths, idk why Skrills have horrible pitch and acceleration, but idk, their speed is just amazing, and even though their pitch is really horrible it looks like it makes them kinda fast and have a smooth flying

Looks like I have to agree to disagree here. Okey.

Youre just saying that cause your favorite dragon is Whispering Deaths, or maybe because someone disagree on your opinion of what side youre on and it offended you, right? I didnt mean to offend you Im speaking honesty here, trying to help Stormcutter12, of picking dragons, and if you wanna be boting Whispering death, just because that its your fav dragon or its your main dragon or because you like the models of WD's potentials in game I guess it doesnt counts of an answer to this thread's question -_- No offense, its just talking about honesty feelings! xD

If you wanna defend Whispering death side in racing, give reasons, necassary reasons, like what makes you like it in racing. Whats it good at, take notes, not because its awesome, or your favorite dragon, thats just not about it at all LOL XD

 In my opinion, gronkles are the best. I have raced with my gronkle Newtsfang before, and suprisingly i won! Gronckle's accerleration, turn rate are either 9 or 8, but their speed is 4. Trust me, in my first race, I beat a nadder and nightmare. Trust me. However, Toothless is the best as in flight club you can never beat any other dragon.

 But as always, I think all dragons are equally good in racing and in other stuff.

Yes, Gronkles are cheap and the best at turning rates, Gronkles are actually good at everything in Thunder run racing, really.

I guess Gronkles are recommended to LOL XD

Hope youre not confused what to pick Stormcutter12, but at least think abott zipplebacks you wont regret having one, seriously. HAHAHAHAHA..!!!! XD

 

Actually you say Gronkle's speed is 4 its not about the stats its about real lif experiences, stats are nothing about Thunder run, I say Gronkle's speed is 8 or 7.5 in real experiences. And, what you say beat Nadders and Nightmares, first its "offcourse" you win with a nightmare rider in races, nightmares are....hmm... dont know how to say it. :/ And nadders, hmm..... I'm guessing youre lucky (kinda) because Gronkles have better pitch and turns. Nadders are awesome at racing to :)

You cant make people like what you like Ken Flames, everyone can pick whatever they like and whatever they want, so, dont argue on others opinion its their life after all, and youre not the judge to decide. XD

well they do have good stats

well they do have good stats and fair well its their size that fools most into thinking they are going slower and they are well balenced 

 

i guess people look down on them more because they are free now and they used to be rare and now they are not

And P.S This dragon is not about dragon's awesomeness you know, its about racing abilities, and just so you know Whispering Deaths are my second favorite dragon (their so awesome, destructions, whispers, and awesome abilities, I even have one). I don't hate Whispeirng deaths, thats just weird how you're upset that I pick Skrills than Whispering Deaths, I dont mean to offend you, so you need to realized that you can't get mad of someone that the person picks the opposite side of your side :/

*Psst... What is a subject?*

This is up to you, actually; it depends on what you bond with your dragon is and your knowledge of the track. I'll give you my opinion, but remember - it's up to you.

 

From what I've heard (I only have a Skrill, Gronckle, Changewing, Nadder, Boneknapper, Whispering Death, and a Stormcutter, so I can't back any of this up), Smothering Smokebreaths are very good racers. Also, my Changewing Ruby (yet to be put in my signature) has these wonderful, smooth turns that launch her ahead of her slower-turning opponents. My Skrill Twilight, on the other hand, has similar turns, except that they are slightly wider, but awful, awful acceleration. Most of the time, I will be able to pull ahead of the less experienced racers, but sometimes, her acceleration forfeits my first.

 

The others have answered the other questions.

 

I hope I helped to make your decision clearer!

Hi

Hmm...good point everyone. :) Would y'all consider:

. Monstrous Nightmare

. Rumblehorn

. Skrill

. Typhoomerang

. Thunderdrum

. Raincutter

I'm sorry, but I've never really been a Changewing fan...;( I know that stats aren't what make the dragon, but..out of these, which ones would you reccomend?

Wow this thread got really

Wow this thread got really busy XD Out of those, I would go for raincutter or skrill; raincutter has decent speed and great acceleration, but a weird body motion which can make flying them feel a bit unstable. Skrills are wicked fast once they get up to speed, but their acceleration is awful; rising and diving is really difficult, and if you hit something it's hard to regain speed on a skrill. Thunderdrum is lovely and smooth to fly, but a bit slow in my experience.

Why, why are they slow, what cause it being slow, Thunderdrums are great racers to in my opinion, they do have a bad acceleration, and especially the worst pitch but I think its smooth and quick flying view dragon?

That's the thing, I'm not exactly sure why they're slower- when I'm flying my thunder I feel like I'm going fast, but my times are always 1-2 seconds slower than my zippleback. My guess is that their max speed has been mislabelled on the stats- compare the changewing 'top' speed of 3.5 to how it feels on the track; it's clearly not a 3.5. Same thing with the smokebreath 'top' speed of 2; we know that mistakes on the stats can happen. I think the thunderdrum is really about an 8, not a 10 (where 10 is toothless speed quick).

 

Here's my personal 'amended' speed stat list- imagine you're flying on a straight stretch with no rings, no corners;

 

* Toothless- 10

* Skrill- 9.5

* Typhoomerang- 9

* Raincutter- 9

* Zippleback- 8.5

* Thunderdrum- 8

* Changewing- 8

* Smokebreath- 7.5

* Whispering Death- 7

* Stormcutter- 7

* Nightmare- 7

* Nadder- 7

* Boneknapper- 6

* Snafflefang- 6

* Gronckle- 6

* Flightmare- 6

* Scauldron- 5

 

Bear in mind, of course, that raw speed is not enough. Even though I rated the typhoomerang third on speed, forget doing tight manouvres with them. And of course, this is only my personal list so I welcome discussion~

Actually I get it about feeling like youre slow with Thunderdrums, but their actually going fast after you enter a ring in a racing start, you can tell that their going fast when you look at the shadows in the water of some tracks :)

 

Your main dragon is a zippleback!!!!? Me to, Wow we should really meet someday in TR, I love challneging zippleback racers, racing with you sounds really fun XD We should race smoe day LOL XD

Funny story, my original

Funny story, my original dragon was a zip but I neglected him for aaaaages because I thought that the reason I kept losing races was because he was a 'basic' dragon- not realising I was just an awful racer at the time XD Now I have three zips for trophy earning, and my farm is filed with zippleback totems >:D We should definitely race sometime :) Is your game name the same as your forum name/what clan are you in? I'll friend request you ^_^

Monstrous Nightmare : heard that their horrible racers, like Typhoomerangs, Ugh! Typhoomerangs are nothing to me in racing. Some racers are unusually a really great Nightamre racers, I have to say their a lucky one, as maybe their a great Nightamre racers in the old Thunder run and get used to it in the new one, example my best friend James the, he is amazing! :)

Rumblehorns : I dont know, I want to get one to, they look awesome in game. So, I wanna get one anytime soon, but I havent get any words of Rumblehorns in racing.

Skrills : Like I said, their awful bad accelerations but as you reach to rings you will be a flash XD They actually also have a bad pitch, so thats why dont ever try use Skrills on using Gronkle Run shortcuts, or Frozen Warriors second shortcut, as they have bad pitch and super speeds.

Typhoomerangs : Absolutely NOT! Like what I said above, their bad at everything

Thunderdrums :  You heard them XD

Raincutters : I had never talk about Raincutters before, I never know how they do in racing

 

But mostly recommended is Zipplebacks, Changewings, Gronkles to (if you can handle their over powered turnings), Nadders, Skrills, Flightmares to (I forgot about Flightmares)

 

Idk anything about Flightmares, I dont have one, but I have this unstoppable friend at racing with his Flightmare in racing, his name is Barking Ghost XD

Hi

Thanks! I guess I'm really looking for acceleration, turn, and speed (I can work with bad pitch). So, cross these dragons off the list:

. Rumblehorn (I just raced with one with my skrill and it was beat easily. I even beat it by a landslide in my worst track!)

Monstrous Nightmare (You said they're bad)

Typhoomerang (You said they're bad too)

So that leaves the skill, raincutter, and thunderdrum. Hmm..well:

Zipplebacks: I like em...but...I'm sorry, but I can't deal with two heads...

Changewing: As I said above, I've never been a Changewing fan. Sorry...:(

Gronkles: Um...I dunno...

Nadders: Love them! But... I have a nadder on another account, and I wouldn't call them the BEST racers...

Skills: They are definatley on my list!

Flightmares: Hmm... I'll think about them.
