A buddy of mine picked up a 04 xc 500 and figured he could beat the crossfire. Went out last night and run them about half a dozen times. The crossfire won everytime but sometimes it was alittle too close for comfort. Depending how i would hook up it would be anywhere between beating him by up to 5 sled lengths, and down to about half a sled length. I have run another buddies 04 Pro-X2 700 many times and the crossfire is neck and neck everytime with it. I guess i cant complain i still was winning, just would like alittle more breathing room, especially going against a 500.

Don't feel to bad about a 500 running with you. Them 500's were pretty hot sleds, you lose some with the longer track and lower gears. I had a 99 zl 500 once & I surprised alot of people with that sled. Beat alot of bigger sleds up to 80 with it, but after that they blew by me like I was standing still.

UPDATE::::

Did alittle clutch work and went out with the xc-500 and Pro-x 2 again. Not a chance in hell the 500 can even get close to me. The 700 is about a trade, i win some he wins some all depending on who can hook up better. Now i can sit back and laugh as i go by!!!!

I've got 2 buds will bullet fast F5's. Both of them will run with a stock 700 crossfire bottom to top. Maybe a length advantage to the crossfire. Yes the F5's are tuned well, but the engines are stock.

It's all up to the ability to clutch and tune really. Out of 15 sleds on the lake this weekend in 1500' my Crossfire 7 was quickest, my buds box stocker was about 10-12th. Not saying I'm a clutch guru by any means, I know just enough. Only one sled was a 500 and that was the F5. I think there were 2-3 600's and the rest 700's. F5 was consistently in the top 3!

This weekend will be a different story on the Crossfire. 2000 of ice...too far for a crossfire.
