2.mid 90s xcr 440 super quick an untoucheable from 0to60

3.ski doo mxz 670 very rast sleds an realiable .
I've heard the XCR 440's were fast, but unreliable. Anyone know why? I never rode one, but having trouble imaging a 440 piston port feeling "fast". I would think it would be mostly low gearing. Now, the 97 XCR 440 introduced the domestic VES engines, and I can imagine that was a rocket for it's day.

Early 90s, what about the wildcat? Never owned one, but dammit those things seemed fast, kindof an oddball, too in the days where all the performance sleds were triples.

I dont think they really ever sipped fuel, but they were no means the worst! Some sleds are just hard on gas ha. My buddy always told me his 99 T cat and his brothers 01 average around 10 miles to a gallon on most trips which to me isnt all that terrible. He did say on one river ride he went onna few years back he and his brother both got about 6 miles per gallon but he also claimed it was warm, the snow was sticky and they were driving like maniacs. I remember the day cause I was planning on going on that ride and I do recall it was late spring and pretty dang warm out. Maybe this winter Ill take the MC out on a longer ride and see if shes a thirsty one.
