You will love all the updates, and new chassis, however, your old 97 big block will walk the new twin quite easily,, on the lakes that is, or high speed road running, *http://www.snowmobileworld.com/forums/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif every where else though the new one should be fabulous!! http://www.snowmobileworld.com/forums/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

Raced a 800 ZRT this weekend and was able to beat this guy from the line to the top easy. The twin will win unless you meet some hopped up tweekster. I fear nothing with my 800ZR.

SnowBLown, what year zert did you race, and what was the distance and top speeds achieved? *Just curious.
Not calling you a liar, but it seems odd that you beat him in top end. *I can see you taking it on low end quit easily off the line and even all the way up to 100mph, but after that I would think the triple would start to catch up and walk away...

No lie. 7300 rpm, needle on the speedo just clear of the m in mph, flat out for 3 miles and this ZRT was not there. It was a 98 ZRT and it suprised the hell out of this guy too. Twins Rule! http://www.snowmobileworld.com/forums/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif

Again, to many variables here. I&#39;ll bet ANY money that someone did his own clutching or had a black magic clutch kit on the zrt800. Something was wrong with the setup no doubt.

There is no way in hell that a properly clutched and set up zrt800 will lose to a zr800 PERIOD!

Don&#39;t assume that just because you beat one sled that your zr800 will beat all of the zrt800&#39;s.

Facts are facts and the zrt800 has more h.p. and runs alot more rpm.

Next thing I&#39;m going to hear is that the zr800 can smoke a thundercat. Well, let me tell you a little information-there is hardly any difference between a zrt800 and a thundercat when the zrt800 is clutched correctly-often times the zrt800 will run right with it and sometimes beat it.

Cant fool me, I know better and have seen and been to MANY races.

I don&#39;t think cat makes an 800 three lung anchor anymore. I wonder why? Could it be that all of the loyal cat owners got tired of being beat by 700 and 800 polaris twins? Yep. http://www.snowmobileworld.com/forums/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif

Sounds to me like your blow"n smoke.
A 97, well lets see how fast your sled will be with 4 to 5 years wear and tear.

hpzrt600 is right I races my friends 00 thundercat with my 97 zrt 800 and we were side buy side to 100mph. He did pull about ten feet buy a 1/2 mile thought. But I was very happy because my sled still needs to be set up. Its totaly stock right from the dealer.

It&#39;s all in the clutching,I have a ZR800 with a speedwerx pipe,and I have beatten a couple t-cats,xcr800&#39;s(many),and even Marv Jorgensons xcr800!!!! And I&#39;m not the only one my friends xc800 has about 1mph on me,he raced the same guys the same dayno problem!!

This is always a funny post to read, I have heard many times about twin 700 and 800&#39;s beating T-Cats and ZRT 800&#39;s...........PLEASE I do not have the fastest T-Cats around but since 95 none of my triples (800/1000&#39;s) have been beaten by a twin. A mach yes, but a ZR 800 HA HA HA HA HA!!!!!!! Any guy that has a T-Cat that gets beat my a 800 twin is a moron with a wrench. I raced a 800 RMK today and absolutely killed it, and I&#39;m over reving for my altitude buy about 1200 rpm........

I&#39;d love to get into a pissing match with you but i seriously don&#39;t think Marv Jorgenson(Chopper City Sports) is a moron! Yes I have gotten beat by a t-cat but if you buy a clutch kit in a box I would bet I would give you a run for your money.Anyway thats the way it worked out that day.My buddy with his zr800 has the same pipe,v-force reeds,speedwerx head,44mm carbs ,ported cylinders,mtn cat cdi box,and that&#39;s just the stuff I know of, is also scrathing his head,it&#39;s all in the clutching!

There is no way a stock 800 twin could race with a 800 triple if the race is in a straite line. *

I hear a lot of people saying the twins can take it of the line and you may be right. *But when i see a mxz 800 take of its nothing compaired to my mach triple. *I have raced a 800 of the line and beaten it start to finish. *

I would even go to say that a so so tuned zrt 800 would still beat a zr800. *

TRIPLES RULE IN ANY SITUATION. *THEY JUST COST MORE TO MAKE..

A twin the same size should beat a triple in 1000&#39;, for a 1/4 mile you better watch the triple take over. *Cause that is what it is for twins over. http://www.snowmobileworld.com/forums/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

You are right CJT the triples suck, bow to the mighty ZR........
However, this king of the ditch pickles you talk about, I&#39;m not sure but I don&#39;t think that sounds quite stock...................
