What do you guys think are the three fastest lake runners ever produced (starting with the fastest)? I know that the mach1000 and fusion have not hit the snow yet, but feel free to include them if you think they will have what it takes.

SRX and the old Mach Z were no slouches either, but then again I did see a '97 or '98? Poo XCR 800 hand a Mach Z it's a$$ on Indian Lake...

Actually, an RX-1 is faster than a 700 SRX. Also, the RX-1's engine lives for high-rpm runs. Even at 10,000 rpm that engine is just starting to hit its powerband. Thats the reason why the SRX was dropped back in '03.
Now by "fastest" are talking top speed or a 600' run?
I witnessed many Vmax-4 owners who were unbeatable in 300' runs but who could not run with lowly sleds such as Indy 650s and RXLs on the longer runs.
As far as the ThunderCat, it was a good sled in its day. However, I think a lot of the big twins that are being made now would eat it for breakfast. I think any 800 twin would be able to handle a T-cat with relative ease.
