Had mine out on White Lake, NY this weekend. I couldn't get over 102 out of it. The lake was snowcovered- packed.
My wife's sled (ZL 600), according to the speedometer, did 100 also. I would pass her out like she was sitting still. That tells me speedometers are not accurate.

I voted in the 105-110 category cuz that is the fastest I have seen. HOWEVER..... The lake I was running on was rather small and I would have to slow. It got to 100 in a snap. After that it crept up to 109 and I had to let off. I think it had a few more miles per hour.

im not sure if my digital speedo is all that accurate either. just dont know. friends behind me claim they are up to 85 way behind me and im doin under 80. just dont know.[/b]
Are they riding Firecats too? If not, it's their speedos that are wrong. Most previous speedos were 10 mph high.

All O could get out of mine is 111-112mph. I`m thinking I should have stayed with the 1`` track.

But o well 112 is still major fast

I pinned mine for about 8-10 seconds and saw 96 mph. I want to break this rocket in rite so let off. Plus had speedo/tach update done since then so I think it will run 110 - 115 with my 1.375 track.

Had F7 standard 112 across lake with 1" of snow, still had more to go. GPS read 110, so speedo is very close. :D I had ZRT600 speedo at 115-120? and GPS read 105. <_<

Raced a viper downhill with the wind behind me, hardpack snow 110 mph and had a little more left. He didn't say HOW far behind me he was just that he got up to 105...His best before was 103 and all I could get out of my sno pro was 100, maybe she is getting broken in..

I'm starting to think my digital part of the speedo may be off - looking at everyone elses speeds. Last weekend on hardpack very nicely groomed trail - I seen 121mph for a second. Speedo reading correctly or not - I was flying. Can't believe the power this F7SP has. Liked mostly the idea that my buddy on his XCR800 was way back there.

Yes, 121 is not correct. I will be cruising along at 98, then I get a second of 118-121 then back to 98. Track does not slip. Tach does the same thing. Wonder if flipping the coil would help?
