orange/white cat primary spring, 54g weights, yellow spring in secondary don't remember which hole, pulls great all the way through. I think I have 55/53 helix in there now as well. But i have DandD with less angle on the top end which i'm going to give a try this weekend just for shits.

BM Purple spring comes in at 5,000 +, running 56gm weights, Red socondary spring in the center hole and 58/54 D&D Helix.

Tops out around 82-8300 RPM's (on the tach)

Running stock gearing now, switching to 22 top gear and keeping the 40 bottom..

I have tried Abagoz setup in my 97 with good results, the only thing is i had to crank my sec spring to the tightest to compensate rpms. I engage at 5400 or so and can drop it to 5000 and still run 30-40 mph. At Wot i have been able to get the T of cat on hard pack. on lakes 1 foot of snow i usually can hit 95 or so. I run 8500 at wot.

I have this set up on my 99 and it runs pretty good.. I have been playing with the secondary spring in various locations and the middle seems to work good for me. My purple spring has been around for a while. It was in my ZRT800 for awhile so it has some years / miles on it. It could be a little weaker than brand new.. I can get to the T as well on a packed road.. :banana:

^^^^^ that will work, but try a helix with around a 50 or 48 finish angle (57/50)and run the sec spring on hole 2 preferred, hole 3 if needed,,, the little 600 3x3 does NOT like a tight wound up sec spring- it will cost top end big-time! snap

Sorry if i confused anybody, i ran with a 97 440 roller cover and couldnt get it tuned properly so i had to crank my sec spring, then today i put back my button cover and it reved too much, so i agree its better in the 3rd hole. Ill maybe try it in the second to see if it makes any differences, i still hit 8500 at wot.

bm black purple , 53 gram comet weights, 58-52 helix yellw driven softest hole 22-40 gear, make sure motor sits flat in mounts and all torque stops are tight, alignment was a bear on these cause the chassis, bulkheads were in half azzed, if you wanna go all the way, pull the chaincase cover and check alignment of shafts and gears, had to open up holes on speedo cable side and redrill to get my drive shaft in straight, quality control wasn't heard of at cat when they threw the 96's together.very fast sled when you get everything aligned, even for todays sleds.
