Race a 98 T-cat Zert...the 01's were slow...my buddies srx's beat 01's in a half mile....the 98 t-cat was a different story though...from 98 on cat made them slower every year.

Apparently some you think that I was expecting the Tcat to smoke me, not the case. I of all people know firsthand that the stock Tcats aren't anything to write home about. Just posted what happened for the heck of it. SlickJim, sorry to burst your bubble but your 600 Doo wouldn't have hit triple digits in 1/2 mile in the conditions I described. Anyhow, when you all arrive up here for the Trasher Ride, we can bring the radar gun along and see what happens. The BS will stop there.

Hey Zert, when is this trasher ride..I don't like to talk alot of smack, but some of these guys make bold claims of being awesome, and I'd love to be there to see if they really ride like they claim.

Anyway, I have a 93 T-Cat, stock for stock, this is one of the fastest T-Cat's out there, the 1000s won't run with it. In trail conditions on a straight run it won't hang with my ZR800. From a standstill, from 30 mph from 50 mph...it won't run with it..... ON the road though, the Old 93 Hands me my own ass after the C-Note. I can't run much over 105, but the Cat will pull strong well past that.

The ride is Feb 28th thru March 2nd in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. Everyone stays at the Best Western Motel, meet up Friday night and ride the next 3 days. Lots of people will tell you how good of a rider they are, it's easy to do on this board, but I let my sled do the talking on the trail. Come on up, all are welcome and it's a good time.

I wouldn't say the race was BS, I'm sure your talking the truth about what happend. What comes into play for me, would be clutching, belt ware, attack angle of the track and so on. A person can slow down a sled big time with all these things. With the "T"cat being a 01, could this guy have had several issues with his machine that made the race favor the newer ZR900? a "GOOD" chance.

I think a "GOOD" running "T"cat would have the HP advantage to hand most if not every other stocker to date, their azz.

Later

The XCR is runnin real strong, real strong and i'd like to see what it is runnin', then again, IF I can stay ahead of you, it would mean it's real fast.
I might have to let your skinny ass on it and see if you can make it FLY!!!!!!

Hey Sledheadred
What's with the plain rear idler, all the other idler's are colour co-ordinated. Change that or stop showing the picture it look's cheap even for a POL.

Hey Red, you're being awfully polite by saying please like that, is this a New Years resolution??? Can I start an Over-Under pool to see how long it lasts? I'll give you to Jan 6 - LMAO. You need to get XXX to race zert on your sled this year, if it don't blow up first towing your big $#@!@#$%^& around!
