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.

I dont think its that much.  But if you think about that even 75 isnt that much.  A heavier driver and a full tank of gas easily makes up for that.  As does the few extra hp the mach has.

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.

I quite regularly lose to machs over a distance.  Off the line,  over a distance, I have yet to see a Mach behind me.
