Forgot to ask if some of these sleds had monster stickers on them....could explain the abnormal high speed readings.

Or maybe they have "cans" on them:mad: Its like calling a magazine a "clip"... makes me cringe

Either way good post. I know a vmax4-750 has quite a bit of top end:bc2:

Really couldn't tell you what vmax 4's got for top end only that our triple piped and ported 600 xlts and 600 xcr's with stock gearing crushed them in 1/4 mile drags.

Thats the thing. They dont really hookup well off the line without some help and even than a i could leave him for dead with a stock 700 twin. But if you did it from a roll on/ice or like said with a asphalt track where you have traction lookout. The motor is unbelievable. If im not mistaken its one of a few snowmobile engines that was aircraft certified. so lots of WOT. They are fast sleds top end not 800xcr ves level but they do real good

Wow i had the 79 El tigre 5000, & on cold nights if felt crazy fast, esp after i melted a small hole in the bottom of the air box & shoved a plastic pipe in it. but i dont know about 100mph fast.... Plus pretty sure the V Max 600 in the 90s wasnt a 100mph sled...could i be wrong?
yeah right. our 1978 tx-l would eat those 5000 eltigre's for lunch. beat 440 rupp nitro's etc. 77' tx-l only 70 mph? these did 90 plus. and in 1977 @ the winnipeg to st. paul 500 race two 1977 tx-l's were doing 102 on the side of a road this was on radar. our 77' tx-l just last year got second place in the stock 500 class radar run @ 77 mph on a porta tree timing system? with lower then stock gearing for 1/3 mile sprint oval racing.

a lot of those speeds are off? massey 440 fuji triple @ 118 ? i don't think so?

I had a bender dual carb kit and pipe with porting on my 80 ss440 yamaha fan that ate those 5000 f/a cats for breakfast. Even beat modded 540 srv's. Use to run 82 mph on the gun in 1000'.
Never saw good running 750 vmaxs, only the vmax 800 pro stockers.

you are not wrong. They were heavy dogs with the worlds worst front suspension.
