Ok, i need to know, ive never seen them race, But what is faster, A stock F7 OR Stock Rev. I personally think the F7 would smoke it, but thats my opinion.

What size Rev? That might just factor in....
If you are in the ditch, upside down, and the sled's on top of you, you are doing something wrong.....

If you're talking the REV 800 vs. F7, a friend of mine has a '03 Rev 800X, he studded it (1.25" track, 144 1.5" trail studs), and added silencers. He has raced many F7's over the past winter, and he would either be even with, or beat the stock ones (he would start to walk away from them once he hits about 60 or so), and would lose to the modded ones (which was most of them).

The F7 is definately a fast sled, but I have ridden both a Rev and a Fcat, and I would much rather ride the REV in the trails.

I raced at a couple of radar runs last winter..and my f7 was atleast 5-8 mph faster then the 03 rev 800's... i raced two on a lake and i smoked them both..the only ski-doo that gave me trouble was a tricked out rev 440..i'm not to sure what he had in it..but it deff wasnt stock..he took me off the line but my powerful midrange made me go right past him

The REV 440 wouldnt have to have anything done to it to beat you out of the hole.
If you can't impress em with you knowledge, confuse em with your bullsh*t

I own a stock F7 w/ 1 inch lugs, not studded, and i have raced a rev 800 stock w/ 1 inch lugs and beat it by 1 1/2 sledlenghts in a quater mile 3 times conescutively......there isnt one stock 800 that can touch an F7, so stop complaining and defending your little ski-douch sleds for everyone that thinks that they are faster than an F7

I was riding with a guy who had a F7 this past season. Another in our group had a '02 Ski-Doo MXZ 800 and they raced from a dead stop. The F7 took everyone for the first few hundred feet, then the 800 and some Yami 700 triples caught up. They ran out of room to go much futher. The very immpressive F7 seemed to be the fastest thing off the line right now but may not be the fastest top ender. Regardless, I admit its an awesome sled even though I'm a Bombi rider.

I raced only one F7 a SNOPRO this year on my MachZ and it ripped me up off the line and it took me to atleast 75 miles an hour to start catching up and about 95 miles to start passing him. I was really suprised with its acceleration. Ive raced Rev 800's as well and they don't seem to be that quick.
but i think the F7s will be in for the suprise this winter when the Rev 800 HO hits the snow!
