I sure hope you don't trust a speedo for your top speeds.. ...All OEM are high.* Lookat at a GPS... My M sled last weekend said I was going 77.* My gps said 68......... I am sure that my GPS was wrong and the speedo on a sled was correct

Actually, the digital speedos on the CF/C7 have proven to be VERY accurate; usually within 1 or 2 mph at 100, if you are on hardpack. BUT if you are in fluffy snow with poor traction, then obviously it is going to read higher than your actual ground speed.

this is what we go by,, never had any doubts, the wear patterns on bills primary and secondary show the belt has been clearly reaching within 1/8''-3/16'' of top of primary with some regularity, also very little showing(if any really)of heat rings from slippage, i know it's only got slightly over 500 miles, but that is a good sign, the polaris belt should make it that much better

actually, GPS is a very important tool....however there are two VERY important factors to consider....number one would be the quality of the GPS signal and number two would a factor called refresh rate. You have to have it on a very high frequency refresh rate to have an accurate reading off GPS. I'll trust C-note's radar gun every time. It is hard to beat a gun. I do agree though, you can't go by >actual> speeds on the speedo, it is again, only a tool for clutching.

Check the spider clearance when running the polaris belt or you will be chasing your tail clutching that belt.

All 05 cat and 06's that I have measured are way out of spec. .075 to .125" from the belt. Now the stock hard belt may be forgiving of this but the polaris belt is not.

That is freeking sick man........

No one believe'd me when my M6 run up to 105mph with the attack20.

I stated last year that the Crossfire will be the fastest thing on snow this year but I sould have said grass.....what I would give for just some snirt......I need snow.

I have a set of F6 gears in my M6 with bigger 9 tooth 3 pitch drivers. I see 102mph very often.....poor attack20.

I need to figure out how to put on a 6 pitch hill climb track that is 14" wide.

There are going to be alot of lucky guys on this little site.....It is nice to find a site where the real tuners hang and we all can jaw about what work and what don't.

The whos sled is faster postes gets on my nerves.......And the grousery list of parts.

POSTS like.......I have a F5 with ported cylinders, F7 monster single pipe, stage four read cage with spacer .040 shaved of my head running 180# comprestion and can get any low end and only top out at 60mph. Keep dusting pistons on pump gas and cann't keep my track tight. Could it be from me drilling holes in my sliders?

Any how it is getting hard to find a site where some good old boys hang.....

Sorry for the post if I ofended anyone......Don.
