Just thought I'd share my first results. Sled is stock power/clutching/gearing. 192 1.575 woody's gold diggers in the stock 1.25" ripsaw2 track. Only 64 miles on the odo so far. (do your snow dance pls) Studded it last night so wanted to see how it hooked up on the ice out front my place. I was decent...a few spots would break crust and hit slush. But anyways..in about 1500-1800' blast. I saw 116mph at approx 8600 RPM. My first impressions is once motor loosens up, and in ideal conditions the stock sleds should be in the 120's

I would hope it should be in the 120s. I had a bone stock 2005 Mach Z that ran 124 mph.
It takes a lot to get a new sled into the 120's on snow. 1.25" x 137" track...steep approach angles. I had a 135mph 800 firecat 10 years ago...but you couldn't pay me to ride a sled like that now. It's the pull from 65-110mph that's hard to beat on a turbo sled.

I love the Corner to Corner pull, If it hits 100 mph, thats fast enough for me.

I bought the turbo so from 20 mph to 80 the ski's don't touch.

My 15' Apex hit 116mph, but that was the speedo showing that. I would have thought 120's out of the box.

Good luck with it! Very nice sled.

Sled is geared for about 125 fully into overdrive. So for it to get to 116 on snow no where near broken in I think is pretty decent. Won't be much longer and it will get an extra 50+ HP. I'm not going to gear it any taller. Low 120's plenty fast enough for me...I just want it to get there even faster
