Yeah. He saw it beat 3 Machz then lose to a T-Cat.
Whats funny is that a Mach Z will take a T-cat 3 out of 4 times.
He saw nothing.
The person were talking about is thunderstruck who claims to live in penetang ontario. Well i have been in penetang the last few weekends and i think i saw him at a shell gas station. Well I dont know where he saw any 900 cats because i didnt see any. Maybe its because i dont have mirrors.
Thunderstruck do you fill up at the shell gas station in penetang. The one close to dock lunch. I saw 3 times a guy on a T-cat black with orange decals (I think.) I did see some other T-cats but thats the only one i remember.
Also how can you say that a 900 twin will beat a Mach. The 900 twin makes less Hp Weighs almost the same and is a Twin. Also its single pipe. And its not even a 900 its a 860 or somthing.
According to manufacturers dry weights there is 52 lb. difference, it would take 7 horse to make up that difference. Cat actually is 6lb.s heavier than the 507 they claim for 8 and 900 twins. Did anybody notice the early 140 hp hype from Cat on F-7, but now today it was already detuned to 138 by Cat. Subtract another 5-6hp and that is where it will end up for the average Joe-- 132-133. Time will tell of course. There headlight dimmer on brake, only will make you lose your entire grip on handlebar for a split second, just enough to get you in a world of trouble.

I agree. I constently beat t-cats. There easy in a drag and I find the Mach is 2 to 3 mph faster. At least thats what ive heard. I have never had a top end race with a cat but I driven both and the Mach will leave you with more pain in your arms.
XCR polaris is the worst enemy of a stock machz. There about even all the way.
And you better be well tuned to beat a SRX in a drag but if you are then no problem.
But the T cat is definetly slower in a drag race but there really dangerous up high. Maybe because of the absence of power valves.
