Heavy but yeah they're great sleds. Don't know the top speed.

1996 Arctic cat ZR 580- 6 inch risers, C+A powder skis, 99 ZR's front suspension, freshly rebuilt engine

1992 Ski doo mach 1 617cc (the beast)

Die hard polaris anti-fanatic!

I have a 95 vmax 500. Very reliable. The gas milage isn't as good as most sleds. I ride at around 9000 ft. elevation and have it geared low. Goes about 65 - 70 mph. It's pretty quick. Not much travel on the suspension. I like it.

I've got one. Heavy, gas hogs, bad suspension, reliable engines, my son's MXZ is a lot better.
