One of the biggest reasons I bought my F is my buddy bought a 05 machz last year. (and my zr9 problems)He kept it bone stock, and says it the fastest sled hes owned(hes had several modified sleds). His has about 1300mi mine has 100mi. He has 1" track w/ 144 pins I have 1" track w/153. We have vowed to keep our sleds virgin(stock) We have yet to race........frankly I'm alittle concerned. He was able to adjust his clickers to 3 and gained quite a bit. Will this sled beat me stock for stock? Is there something I can do to get an upper hand and still remain stock? We have been friendly rivals since my 01 xc8 took his 01 mxz8 on our short run track years ago.
