Post 1998 polaris xc 700

I've heard that a 1998 polaris xc 700 is a fast sled but I also heard that they are off on the speedo. If they are a fast sled how fast can they go and could one keep up with my buddy's 2009 ski doo 600 e-tec?

Keep up with a etec 600? It should be faster than the etec. WL

I'd say most everything out there is "off on the speedo", LOL!

Speed wise, I'd doubt there would be any struggle to 'keep up', LOL, but it is a 10+ year older chassis, and some people do complain that the wedge chassis is a little harsh compared to the newer technology out there. I don't know the Doo chassis that well to know how much more advanced it might be than the old polaris, but that can be a factor.
