1998 indy sport 440

How fast are these supposed to go? I rode one yesterday and it was only doing 50-55 pinned through an open and hard packed field. It runs fantastic, but there's no top end power to it.

I believe it was liquid... I was kind of surprised when my friend took off on a 95 indy trail two up sled and it was doing laps around me

Nope. She's a fanner and only ever so slightly slower than an Indy Trail. The one you rode has issues.

Yea Sports were fans. Should do aroun 70-75. My friend has the exact one and it runs about 75 with me on it across the lake on hardpack. Not speed demons but they should and will do more than 50.
