Correct me if I am wrong with actual specs but I don't think that old Polaris triple was pumping out nearly as much hp as the 600 Cat twin.Originally posted by sledcrazy@Oct 3 2002, 01:15 PM
92 xlt 600 will win in a long race, because its a triple,
No offense but the old 700 twin in the Wildcat didn't have squat for hp. Maybe around 90-95 hp?Originally posted by jdsmi@Oct 4 2002, 09:48 AM
The older XLT was fast. I raced one with my Wildcat back then. I beat it but he was right behind me all the way up to 100mph.
That was then, this is now. The '98 ZR would win.
Are you serious? No way will a zr 440 top out higher than an XLT. I try to stay out of these goofy arguements but that is just too much... If your buddy has this 440 still tell him to hang on to it and come to mid michigan, if he beats any of the XLT's here on the lake i'll pay for his gas to get here and back as well as a full tank... Unless thaat 440 is a race sled yer dreamin bro... :crazy:the XLT 600 will not take over in a drag race over a newer 600 in any distance unless modified. a couple friends of mine one with a 95 XLT and the other with a 97 ZR 440 both bone stock in a long race the XLT will get the jump surprisingly enough but on top end the ZR 440 is slightly maybe 2 mph faster both the 97 ZR 440 and the XLT are at about 90 hp the ZR takes over cause its lighter
the point being my ZR 580 will even eat the ZR 440 for lunch in the right conditions and the 600 will smoke that especially with the advanced timing my money is on the ZR 600
