Testing is as follows

Ice conditions were perfect and temp was very mild with little or no wind

Me 310 lbs 500 ft = 86.7 mph
1000ft =101mph
2000ft =112mph
3000ft+ =115mph

Friend 225lbs 1000ft =103 mph
2000ft =113 mph
3000ft+=118mph
weight makes a big difference :p

F7 mods trail studs, bullseye air intake no clutching

1000 ft 103mph same as ZR900
2000 ft 113mph 1mph faster than zr 900

Radared my '02 ZR800 EFI just after Christmas on a river with little to no snow. Completely stock except for 144 studs and hit 110.9MPH. Made four passes, all within the 110 range.

My brother-in-law hit 108 after playing with the clickers on his Rev800 Sport. It has the timing advanced and 192 studs.

Other sleds (not sure on the number of studs) included a...

clutched, geared, ??? XCR700 -- 113MPH.
stock (I think) XC700 Edge -- 106MPH
Clutched, ??? MXZ800 -- 110MPH
stock (I think) ProX800 -- 102MPH
clutched, trail ported, geared, ??? MachZ -- 126.7
clutched, Jaws Pipes, ??? TCat -- 126.0

The guy on the TCat was picking up a gear which will hopefully add 6MPH to his speed. When he and the Mach lined up out of the hole, the TCat would pull a couple lengths on him.

There was also another Rev8 which was clutched, geared, jetted, advanced timing, ??? which hit 117, but scuffed a piston doing it.

Good speeds for your altitude. We too are at 2500'. I see you are using a GPS. What kind of surface were you on and how far did you run? Where are you running, out west somewhere? Studs on these sleds? Looks like the std track F7's are alot faster.
We did some runs yesterday as well using a Stalker Radar. We were running about 1/2 mile and the ice had a couple inches of crusty snow on it that slowed us a bit, temperature about 0F. Three sleds-an 800 Pol (M10) with twin SLP's and an as yet undetermined power shortage, an 800XC (std) with an SLP single and a stock (jetted and clutched a bit+powerbreather) ZR9.
800 Pol (twin pipes) 104mph
800 Pol (single pipe) 107.7mph
900 Cat 110.9mph
The Cat has reverse and is geared down to 24/39 and was running out of gears and revving up to 7600-7700 on top end. I think it would have gone faster with a 25/39. May try and see if it will fit now with 1000 miles on the chain.

Hehe, I wish that 2500ft represented altitude. The run was at 1000ft altitude. The 2500ft represented distance. The surface was glare ice with only ice particles that the numerous sleds had kicked up with their carbides. Perfect conditions. The only way speeds could've been higher is colder air. Baro was very high and the air was excellent. All of the sleds were carbide picked. This particular run showed 112 on radar. The GPS reads 111 (if you look carefully it can be seen).

I don't think well see a more perfect day. These speeds might be bettered by 1 mph on a colder day.

My 600 in the pic, was geared at 25/41. It could probably pull a 25/40 in these type of conditions. A shorter lug track would net another 3-6mph.
