so my other riding buddy thinks his 88 Wildcat 650 is going to take my 95 Mach 1 on the lake.  he figures he has some sort of vintage muscle thing going on


he knows i post here and wants to hear some of your opinions.

Um....I don't think so...not unless you pull off a plug cap
Make sure you bet for something expensive

Rocketman took the words out of my mouth! Bet him! My buddy did all this work to his 600 and said do you want to race? Well I almost bet a case of oil but didnt and to make a long story short I raced him over and over and beat him by 5 or 6 sled lengths everytime! Should bet him! Oh well. So make him put his money where his mouth is!

yupp, Wildcat was indignant to the message of the posts and wonders if any of the posters were Cat riders  "we'll see" he sez, indeed we will


As far as off-season sleds and beer, i think its a sledhead thing, this other guy keep harping on ' winters over, get over it' so i told him what i thought of his attitude.  

hopefully he'll get over it!

hi there ; i just luve beeing different so if your both stock.this is how its gonna go, the bomb will pull out front for about 500-700feet then the old cat should pull by with ease. the old cats would run about 90+1or2mph and the old bombs 583 or 617 high 80's

I've got a buddy who has a 89 or 90 mountaincat 700 that is very impressive, we've never raced because he has electrical problems before we get anywhere but he says he'd keep up with my 95 zrt800. I know my sled is stock except for picks but I don't know what he has done to his.

When you guys race against each other next time, why dont you drive backwords and make it a little more even


I have a wildcat 700 my self, quite tired machines according to my oppinion.

A 617 will still take a Wildcat 650 with ease and give a Wildcat 700 fits...and that's with the heavier PRS chassis.

BTW, a '95 Mach 1 has a 670 with twin pipes and 44mm Mickeys and is in the lighter F-2000 chassis.  It will eat the Wild Turkey for dinner.
