That's what I would do. You can start with the 7" and see what this kit does and then change to suit your preference.Originally posted by dave cat 7@Jan 2 2003, 11:12 AM
maybe i'll make a prototype out of wood and wedge under to get the feel first
Not yet, but I really want to. I'm actually thinking of trading my backup sled (01 ZR 600) for a REV, but I'm in the same boat, don't know if I can bring myself to buy a SkiDoo, but if its that much better............Originally posted by dave cat 7@Jan 2 2003, 11:43 AM
have you rode a rev?
i rode one for about 25 miles and loved it, i just cant bring myself to buy a ski-doo
I have spent a lot of time on a 600REV. It is a fine machine, but it is a bit over-hyped in some areas too. First off, some folks just hate the riding position. Supertrax said they found 15% of the people that rode it for extended periods just couldn't get use to it. I am borderline...I have gotten use to it, but would never like riding in that position for more than short spells. I can see why it is a force in sno-cross though. When dialed in, the thing turns sharper and more precisely than any other sled I have ridden. The 600 is also freaky fast. Like the F7, the 600HO competes easily one class up. The ride is more predictable over rougher terrain because the transition to standing is so easy on the REV, the down side to that is that you need to stand more on it because seated the ride is still rougher than most REV guys would admit. In fact, my friend thinks my 02 ZR handles the really rough junk better at higher speeds then his REV does. The most important thing is to ride one for an extended period before ever considering buying one. Some love em, some hate em and very few are in between. They will create a niche (maybe a big one), but they will not be for everyone or every style of riding that's for sure...MarcOriginally posted by Jay@Jan 2 2003, 12:00 PM
