I am wondering who would win (or most likely to) in this race (track length:1000 feet [packed and groomed])

1995 ZR580 liquid, EFI, plastic skis, modified suspension, other minor tweaks
studded

1995 Cougar 550 liquid(pretty much stock)

2001 ZR500 liquid(stock)

2003 Super Sport 550 fan (stock)

2003 SKS 700 liquid (stock)

1998 Panther 340 fan(stock)

I am assuming the panther wont be much of a runner..
All are twins..

Just seeking some professional advice.. I will let ya know when we actually race

I'd say the zr 500, but will probably be close between the 5 and 580.

580 should be 2nd
500 ZR should be 3rd
550 cougar should be 4th
550 fan should be 5th

That's my predictions anyway.

Sorry to bother you again..polaris-man. If i am becoming annoying.. just let me know. But how well do you think my 580 would do against other sleds in the 550-599 liquid class?

the SKS would smoke everyone of you guys, giving the driver isen't 6 years old. Its geared for more bottom end yet still has great top end.

If you pull a plug wire on all the other sleds, the panther might have a chance hehe. Sks 700 will stomp the rest, then the zr 500 and 580 should be pretty close. The sks will just leave the others at the line, 2 sec. into the race its over.

SKS no problem. If a 340 fan is beating you off the line, you got some problems!

i would have to say the 700 like 500FasEnuf said there is no replacement for displacement..the bigger engine will always either out power or have the potentel to beet a smaller engine...like the old CHevy 350 vs the new 3.8 V6 the new v6 puts out more power than the old 350 but you can make that old 350 put out ALOT more power than the 3.8.

ok we raced right b4 i traded the 580


it was

700
500
580 (very close with 500)
550 AC
550 P (ver close with 550 AC)
340

I just got the 98 zr500 with 176 studs and i whoop up on everyone and am fairly close in short distance races with the 700. Im sure if it was much longer the 700 would fo sho win.

Thanks,
CP
