We have 3 F7's that have over 300 miles "with no problems" . Wish people would not hit the
panic button so quickly . I was almost afraid to take my new F7 for a ride .
Anyway the F7 is one fun sled to drive and yes it is fast... very fast. :D

Just curious.

i still have original cord it is fraying some but when i start i turn skisto left and pull straight up so it does not hit,but i have fix on order from dealer.praying it lasts thru holiday.Also checked welds on spring block arms and they look good.
