Rumors circulating at my cat dealer of a F9. Sounds good to me and I will have one. Saw a F5 stock doing 6.4 sec runs with some clutching. We will see how they do this weekend at the Grass Drags. Only makes sense that cat would monopolize on this chasis and engine setup.

the F5 puts out about 104 horse and the current 600's put out at least 115 im betting if cat came out with an F6 it would have atleast 120 horse to compete with doo's 600HO and not only that but a 104-140 horsepower jump is quite a lot in terms of acceleration and insurance rates to boot

i would bet on seeing a F6 comming fairly soon if not i can always say the shoulda :D

It honestly seems to me to be unecessary. An F9 is much more realistic as compared to an F6 i think the F5 is a good replacement for the 600

It will be an F-6. That is the largest selling displacement in the industry. Cat's 600 has left something to be desired for a while now.

Well, if it is an F6, how ticked off are the guys that ordered an F5 or F7 going to be? If I had bought, I know I would be, don't even get a ride in yet and coming out with a new model. Guess that's why I'll wait one more year ;)

Highly doubt the F9, cause it wont fit, wouldn`t object to seeing a HP four stroker.

No F-9's. No room-thats right from A/C engineer. And a 4-stroke is DEFINATELY out of the question for the F chassis as well.

The only thing I would bet on is a F-6, and thats a big maybe because they have room for that. :hallo3: :hallo10: :hallo10:

The 4-stroke would be in the ZR chassis, not the F-series.

An AC grass dragger on the NSRA circut and a CAT dealer (uses and has ordered the engine for outlaw style track car), Both say the 600 motor exists, estimate hp is in the 125-128 claimed range. The only question is when and will it debut the new gear system or the "black diamond" system that cat purchased the rights to a couple of years ago.
