My brother and i have both sleds. we swith sleds every weekend to compare. They both handle the bumps better than anything else out there including my buddie 2002 zrcc. they do it in different ways. the firecat feels light as a feather up front you can really throw it around. it soaks up bumps great. we ran the two sled hard down a real rough trail and they both handled the bumps equally but differently. The firecat just soaks up the bumps with the front dancing and when you hit the big one you didn't see coming the front will jump up at you then you slow down. With the rev it doesn't have the extreme lightweight feeling and the front end doesn't come up on the big one. Instead you hit the big on and the back end starts bucking you-almost like you feel like your going over the handlebars!-then you slow down. Both are great sleds. for pure speed the f-7 is a little faster on topend but that isn't why we bought these sleds rather it was how they took to the trails. Can't say on is better than the other!!!!
