97 is the first year for the 809 engine, and the most HP of the stock Machs. They have the SC10 long travel susp. and are a pretty good all around sled. They make great lake rockets!

Really?  The most stock hp MAchZ was in '97?  What was it?  The pipe shape?  i.e. none of that "stinger center exit" crap like in the CK3?

Interested.......

Was the F2000 chassis much heavier than the CK3 chassis with regards to the Z?

I always found that the F2000 chassis was more comfortable than the CK3 anyway.  It feels like your arms are too short on the CK3.

I've been told the 97 made the most HP also and that starting in 98 it was a little "detuned". The 98 was the
year for center dump pipes and I believe that the 99 pipes
made the most HP

If I remember right the 97 had 147 H.P. The 99 and up have 156. I had the F chassi for many years and it does not handle as good as the CK-3, I think probably because the engine sits about 2" lower in the chassi. The hood design on the CK-3 is way more areodinamic [not how it's spelled] but I think the CK-3 is about 10# heavyier. The 97 would be an excellent grass or ice racer.

The 97 has the better ignition, and from what I was told the 97 pipes work quite well. While I have no dyno runs to back it up, I think the 97 had 153-154 HP.

I had a 95 FIII 600 and loved how that sled handled. While not the best bump machine, on a smooth trail or hardpack it carved great.
