Ran it against another ZR8000 and i can't say which was faster as we were right with each other every time. But the ride of the ZR is SO much better than the Firecat!

Thanks for the replies, I'm going to see if I can get some seat time on the zr chassis non rr model. Tried an rr on the trails way too stiff for the leisure drive lol. I have tried long tracks but not the new xf chassis and I could feel the track behind me. I'll have to give them all a try again and see. What about the 1100 compared to the 800? Power and handling a big difference?

All I can say is I love my F7 and after 10 minutes on a XF8 137" I will never go back to a shorty. You don't realize it's a long track till your off trail and need it. God I love this sled!

I agree I love my 141 because it brings the stutters so much better, but I like the speed of a short track better. It's a give and take longer tracks push a hair more, not a lot but you do notice if your paying attention, I do think the 137 is a nice size and I would like to ride one someday, I am sure they are sweet.
