I kno from experience when i raced my friend's ZRT 600, and i was on my Powder Special 600 which killed the ZRT!!! The 600 have so much power in general they just spin the track, and the extra lenght that the PS have make a night and day differance, when they hook up offf the line, and the powder specail will always take the wholeshot off the line. Plus the exta length helps to keep the down the front which keeps more track planted on the ground. When i raced the ZRT we were on a lake and we went for over a mile, and we both maxed out the speedometers, and when we came near the end i had a HUGE lead on him, at no point did he ever have a chance, and he admited that. He then clamed that i jumped the start, so we did it again and the samething i won, and he thought that the second time we went was a fair start. Plus when we went back to look at the "skid" marks, i locked on the brakes about 10 feet after he did, and stoped about 2/3's sooner then he did, so in stopping the PS stopped better too. Then we switched sleds, him coming up with every excuse why he lost, saying it wasn't 100% fair,and when we did him on the PS won and me on the ZRT i lost, very badly. Then we did it for a final time he gave me(on the ZRT) a couple second head start , then he(on the PS) went and he again bet me, still by a ton of sled lengths. All-In-All the PS won. This winter we are going to try a trail run, which incorporats handeling into the picture, i'm feeling good about that too. While doing all these drags we went through about alittle more the a 1/3 on a tank of gas. HOPE THIS HELPS. IF YOU HAVE AN QUESTIONS JUST ASK!!!
The `95 I had would eat both them up lunch and have room for second`s period.!!
Ran 114.8 on the black top stock (clucthing ,gearing ,jetting)`60 ft 1.58 more there
11.50 1/4 mile. Enough said.......... Cape Breton stock..........
You had to cheat to beat the `95 zrt 600 to beat it,once it was geared ,jetted and
clucthed it would run with anything out there that was stock.(till I put the D.D triple
race pipes ,reeds,plained head,new motor mounts, )then it was a hand full on the trails
and loved every second of that sound of power) just my 2scents
Cape Breton stock.................................
i would think that the zrt should have won, my wifes 600 ps if fast,but my zr 600 on a trail will beat the hell out of it, and when you get that sled up to 70 she is cranking along preatty good.(stock)
For what its worth my brother's 98 powder exterme with large drivers 20/39 gears my clutch set-up .92 lug 136" track would beat my other brother's 98 ext 600 box stock, both ran stock 600 triple engines even with a 55 lb. :thumbsup: lighter rider on the ext, ?????
