only once have i ever went to the bar for a long period about 4-5 miles on a lake with hard pack. it was the day i got my sled and got to 155 km on a radar it's about 98 mph. if i could get a sled that would go fantastic to about 80 mph only that is all i would ever need.
ZRT600 i don't think ski-dooo's guage is out by that much.I ran 110 on GPS which is 1/10 of a mile in accuracy and my speedo read 180kph when i ran through 2000ft.you must be reffering to cat or polaris speedos and believe me i know howe cat speedos run,i owned enough of them
I cant tell you how mine is at the high speeds but according to the gps when my gauge said 170 the gps said 169.3. So doos gauges are pretty accurate.
Yamaha, Arctic Cat, And polaris have gauges that are out by a lot. Not to name numbers but i have seen a cat that said 160km and was only doing around 150. I have also seen a SRX that said 160 and only was doing 145 (THATS BAD). Maybe there was somthing wrong but that sleds gone now and his new 01 srx is about the same as the cat.
Doos definitly got the speedo area. Just an other example of quality.
I got my dad's 00 Mach 1 to read 122-123, but I weigh about 155. After that the speedo has never read right. Its about 2/3s what it should be. I was going accross a lake at at least 100, and the speedo said 60 mph. Oh well.
