You are right ZRTEETH however it wasnt on just one lake....It was at first and thats when the critics got served.....Here is the rest of the news article........................................... ....Flying Tigers
A pre-production 1981 6000 claimed the title of the World’s Fastest Snowmobile at the Snow Goer Shoot Out in February 1980. But critics contended that straightline lake racing wasn’t all there was to snowmobile performance.
The critics were silenced in December 1980 when retired Arctic Sno Pro racer Larry Coltom rode a 6000 to victory in the industry’s first-ever major snocross, the Dayco Holiday Spectacular Muscle Machine Shoot-Out in Alexandria, Minnesota. Cat opened by winning two of the three qualifying motos.
In the feature, Coltom defeated 11 other muscle sleds – half of them IFS machines – representing the best from the seven other brands available. Doug Oster’s 6000 challenged for the lead until he broke a ski near the end. Dan Oostdyk’s Scorpion Sidewinder, essentially the same sled with the older 440 engine, finished third overall, and the Arctic Enterprises contingent took four of the top seven positions.
However, 6000s reaching customers just weren’t all that impressive. Like many snowmobiles of the day, they were jetted rich at the factory to prevent burn downs. But proper re-jetting of the mains and needle jets for local altitude and temperatures turned them into real flying tigers, or Tigrés.
