two major differences that I know is that hillshooter set ups usually are a dual a arm front end for more comfort and durability and they set up their rear shocks differently..Seems as those motors they go for more tourque so to speak if Im correct.Im sure peeps that know more about it will post...those are just the differences that I know of.

The hill is usually really whooped out at the start before it gets real steep so really good suspension will carry you through with more speed and sometimes get you to the top before the other guy. Seen guys get hurt with that really lightweight drag stuff coupled with less travel. If the suspension bottoms out hard, your body has to absorb the shock.

I agree. Every time ive been to SM ive seen someone bite it on the whoops. Saw a pretty quick banshee munch hard once, he decided go to over by the 4strokes and make a run, got bucked off and knocked out.
