I know that the stock 800 gade is a pooch, most 600's can beat them, but if his is really making 165hp he better go back and do some better clutching or somethin. Glad to hear that you wasted him, I beat that was fun.

I agree, he should have won with a true 165hp.

They are slow, but not that slow.

the 1.75 " track is not meant for speed......My guess is that your friend is not set up for speed but rather hill climbing and riding in the deep powder.....

He said that his buddy weighs 100 pounds more. That will make all the difference in the world, for a drag race. 25 horse is not quite enough to cover that extra 100 pounds. :chug:

its true that weight makes a difference i know in drag racing cars(another hobby of mine) they say every 100lbs.is a 1/10th of a second at the other end...and i would have thought that with the 1.75 track he would have killed me out of the hole...and by the way my xfire went places that his renegade got buried....

they say 10 pounds is worth 1 hp.... so 100 should be around 10 hp... But we all know clutching for conditions is the key to any race.

576 pound sled (aprox wet weight of C7) with 140 horse and 175 pound rider would be .186 horsepower per pound.

597 pound sled (aprox wet weight of Ren800) with 165 horse and 275 pound rider would be .193 horsepower per pound.

Close enough that clutching and traction should decide the winner.
