Hey!  I went to some radar runs the other day and with my 97' MXZ 440F I ran a best time of 74.61 mph.  I am racing in the stock fan class.  There was another guy there that ran a 98' MXZ 440F and did 78 mph.  I was just wondering what are these sleds supposed to be running in 1000 feet.  Any info would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks Sharkey!

Actually only the 97' is mine.  The 98' is a competitor of mine!

use a marker to put a vertical line on your primary and then go for a run.   when you stop after the run check how much(if any) is left of the mark.   if the mark is all gone, try throwing a 1 tooth higher top gear in it, might gain a little more top end       or else the engine might now pull it      doesn't hurt to try though

Those are good numbers for 440s midnight.I don't think you can do a whole lot better.If you want to beat you competitor in 1000',prepare to spend a few bucks on clutching.

you can clutch and gear your sled, and mess around with the suspension and still stay in the stock class's       you just cannot touch the motor

a snocross racer i know entered his 2001 mxz in the radar runs on sibley pond about 3 weeks ago and his 440 did 94.6 in 1000'. I cant even see the guy if we ride the small trails around my house and have to catch him on the straighaways.
