oh oh oh.... I know the answer to this!!

Last year I bought a used 97 ZR580 EFI... use to have a 94 ZR580. (and I use to get beat)

My riding buddies have a 2000 ZL500, 99 ZR700, 95 ZR580, and a 95 XLT with pipes.

Now, we lined them all up at a standing start... the only sled that beat me was the 700... at the end of the strip I had the 500 and 95 580 by 6 sled length and the XLT by about 4.

Just my expirence... :thumbsup:

580 would win but if you post in polaris they would say the 600 (why wouldn't they) but we all know here what the truth is. I took a xc700 5 of 6 runs one day but I did have picks in and he had trail studs( just couldn't figure out my holeshot) SWRules

Sorry Oneski but on that day against that sled he could not win. How he was tuned or not don't matter he brought it out and I beat him hands down. By the way it was 1/4 mile run on ice, and I was set up very good and the xc seemed to be running good as he never made any excuses.

I would say the XLT would have an advantage, and as far as the XC 700 he must have been having a bad day!!!!

I'm pretty sure my ZR 580 would win. Those XLT's arent very quick. I'll race somebody with an xlt 600 and we'll see what happens.

We raced today in a field and this is what happened: at the first couple of feet we were pretty close. Then I started pulling away from the XLT and beat him by about 4-5 sledlengths. Did it a few more times and i just kept smoking him. The length we raced was about 750 feet.

Het Chet,how much did you pay for your 580? Also how many miles do you got on it? Thinking of getting a 580,'95 '96 next year? Thanks in advance

Sure its EFI but you can chip it if you want to race it!

Trust me... its a very good trail sled for the money :thumbsup:

The ZR would pull the XLT of the line and the xlt would pass it with in 8OO feet. It will be close though. I had a 95 ZR580 and my brother had a 95 XCR600.
