"IF" Cat builds a F8 what would the hp be? Any guesses?
I would guess about 155-160.

your living in a fantasy world,IF cat builds 800 cc in f chassis,145 hp is the more realistic number with single pipe and in trail form.the current f7 now in its undependable form is only 132-134hp,and the usual for a 100cc overbore is 8-12 hp ,so lets be realistic here.

Realistically Skidoo used to have the best 700 at around 120-125hp. Did cat somehow manage to put another 100cc in their F7 to account for the 8-12hp gain on our sleds. I don't think so. So, lets be realistic and realize that fantasy has already come true for us. If you don't believe they can make a 800 with 150-160 horse, then you're not being realistic!

aczr, Your guess would be about right but AC will tell the public 150hp and the die hards will believe it.

What difference does it make regarding the HP rating the manufacturer puts out there if your kicking everyone's butt. My F7 hasn't lost to any sled yet and there are alot of tripple's posting 150 to 170 HP.

jamie -your right AC advertises 140 on this years f7,then it goes to the dyno and is only 132/133hp.if and when f8 comes out it probaly will be advertised as 150,but actual put out 145/146,which still would be a rocket utilizing a 3.17 to 1 power to weight ratio.the reason why the f7 is still so fast with only 132hp,is due to a very efficent chassis.anybody who thinks that they are going to get a 150-160hp single piped trail sled are smoking the rope.do you want to buy a bridge?

gzd6nh thats quite a screen name,about 5-6 years ago i used to have a zr700 improved stocker this sled was 152.8 hp at 8600,90 ft lbs. of torx.i used to run it in 700,800,and sometimes 1000 imp. stock with lots of success running against sleds that made 175hp{mach1},200hp{zrt800}205hp{storm}165hp{srx}its all about track speed,chassis efficentcy,coming out of the gate hard and putting it to the ground.my wifes 600zr efi beats alot of 800 twins in 660,its all in the set-up and putting it to the ground.
