:( Oh no

This can NOT be true

The F7 lost a race,looks like Cat is about to fold and go into receivership :(

Are you saying a RX-1 beat a F7 ??? ;)

I thought that the F7 was the greatest and fastest sled around this year

One word,

TURBOCHARGER!!!!

Saw one on a RX1 out in Syracuse NY, care of Bender Racing in Buffalo NY.....they say it puts out sick horsepower, I can't remember for sure, but I think it was around 200 or more.....

Pretty sick either way, for a 600 lb + - snowmobile!!!!

The RX-1 would have to do something to beat a stock F7, ain't gonna' do it stock for stock.

The RX-1 @ Bender racing with the Turbo Charger had 220 HP. On the saame floor there wasa ZR? 1050 and at that booth they said they were getting 240 out of that

Bender has three kits, a 180, a 240, and a 3 something horse kit. The 180 kit is a trail kit and is very reliable horsepower. You can't get a two stroke to run a turbo like a four stroke. The reliability just isn't there.

All the cat guys are the same...my ol' man is a die hard cat guy...if he wins a race its because the cats are just sooo fast..and if he losses he some how dosen't remember it or the other guy had a tunnel ram hidden under the hood, or some other reason like the snow wasn't right or some crap like that...when you line up thats it...you see the guys machine...you know the chances....if your going to wine if you loose don't line up!!

I love my ol' man dearly, but man he's got the excuses if he losses...just like all the other cat guys...well most of them i should say

well that should have ruffled a few feathers... :sly:

I didn't write that reply with that in mind, i guess it just struck a funny bone in me between me and my dad always going back and forth and thats what came out...that wasn't writen in anger or anything sorry if it came across wrong.

the whole thread just sounded like me and my 'ol man going at it about how the F7 should not have lost unless the RX-1 was hopped up..thats all... ???

Ive seen a Rx-1 drive both publicly and privatly and theres no way it won against a F7. I wonder if even the turbo charged RX-1 could have pulled them off.

From what ive seen from these sleds so far, there a amazing touring sled with some major zip, But no racer.

We had some snow in the last week and I had the oppertonity to drive my buddies RX-1.

It is one major nice sled, it is very quiet and smooth, It felt a lot like the mach Z.

Powerwize it felt like a well running 600. I didnt want to top out or destroy my buds sled so i sort of took it easy.

Top speed is still a question. But in a drag stock for stock the RX-1 is pretty tame.
