Depends on the nature of the race.
From a dig, he will probably do pretty well.
Your advantage is up top, get going about 30-40MPH then race him on a nice stretch of hard pack, no fluff.
The 1" track is spin city on an ass-dragger down low, even with picks.

Should be no contest for the 700 if you know how to tune and setup a sled.

Well I believe you had said your going to change the carbs to Mikuni's so that will help, take your primary and secondary clutches apart, clean them, inspect them to make sure they're with in spec, write down what weights, helix, spring colors of both of them. You'll want to replace both springs ""but let us know what you have in there as a lot of guys on here know their set ups and can help you out"", you'll most likely have to change the buttons on the secondary too.
Take the chain case apart, write down the top and bottom gear numbers and let us know. Pull the skid check all the idler wheels, bearings, shafts, sliders, etc, etc.
Basically pull it apart and check everything to make sure everything is good, lubed and ready for next year. Check your motor mounts as well as they tend to go with age.
As you can see there is a lot you can do, and the cost is minimal. You'll learn your sled how its put together and how to tackle it if you need to in the winter.
For the spec's on your RMK set up you'll want to post it in the Polaris forum.

Oh and don't worry about racing your buddy or his trash talk, as long as your both out on the snow with strong running machines HELL you both win.
Cheers man
too slow and ZR 800 efi like this.

they are fast for a 600 and reliable I'd say, and very close in hp to your 700.

A well tuned 700 should beat it, if not up to snuff and his sled is , he'll spank you I think.

the 00 rmk has the uncoupled rmk-lite skid, should transfer better with less spin than the xtra-10 skid used in the previous models

Just installing the minimum amount of studs in the track for that 700 will do wonders to allow the clutch to properly do its job. All the clutching in the world is rather useless without proper traction.

My buddy had a 600 cdi in his 05 600 gsx. It was pretty fast, but not near as fast as the 00 600 ves he had. He ran non ves 700 wedge and gen2 sleds with that sdi 600 and only was able to beat the bone stock studded ones. Any 700 that was clutched and studded would beat him in a 1000' run.

i dont into the "which sled is faster" arguement, but I will tell you this. My brother had an MXZ legend 700 (old chassis) and I had an 05 renegade 600 sdi. he started taunting me about him being faster. i told him he better do his homework before he ran his mouth.
600 sdi 120ish hp 700 Rotax 120ish hp
Renegade 475 ish lbs MXZ 490 ish lbs
137"x 1.25 track 121x1.0 track
me 200 lbs him 230 lbs

he insisted we line up, so we did and I spanked him 5 out of 5 times, from a dead stop and a rolling start. I got such a jump on him in the beginning he didnt have enough time to catch or pass me.
A Poo 700 is probably stronger than a 2000 Rotax 700, but the traction of a Renegade is hard to beat.

Well for one thing those 2000 doo's had a heavy chassis not to mention it probably wasn't setup right. I ran a lot of 00 700 mach 1 triples with my 00 600 ves and they were no contest. Those mach 1's were suppose to be 130 hp, but a tank. I think they were 80 lbs or more than my 600.
