'95 indy 500 ::vs:: 98 XCF ::vs:: 97 Trail??

Hey what do you guys think of a '95 indy 500? I just recently got one from my parents for free. All opinions are welcomed. My dad has owned this sled ever since he bought it and it is in mint condition and it is pretty fast too. Do you guys think this sled could beat a 98 XCF 440? Thats probably not running to its top? And do you think the 500 could beat a 97 trail?
Ride Safe. Its not worth it.

That indy 500 will take both those sleds any day. Especially the indy trail. I used to ride an indy trail, now I ride an indy 500. Its twice the sled as the trail was. Ive never ridden an xcf, but I would think that the xcf may be a little quicker but you will have alot more top end on that 500.

Polaris on the gas and kickin a$$!!!

It should be able to beat these sleds. The XCF might be a bit quicker but it is still a 440 fan and the trail is a 488 fan. THINK SNOW!!!!

The Indy 500 is a great sled. My parents have one with over 5500 miles on it. The engines are bullet proof and have fairly good top end for what they are. I actually hit 95 mph with ours.

95mph on the 500! That must be on the speedo and not radar, right. I had a Yamaha Phazer which did close to that, but the track would never stop spinning, so I guess I was probably doing 65.
