That's good to know, considering I sold my 00 clutched SRX to a buddy, and I
have a D+D powerbreathered, clutched, jetted, reeded, headmodded ZR8 waiting to
challenge it.

Yeah, that sounded a little fishy to me, too.  I know that it's Ski-Doo
propaganda and all, but didn't anybody in the marketing department
realize how easy it would be to pick out that strange tidbit?

Hmmm...D&D must not have been invited to the Woody's Top Gun Shoot Out.
Here is what Doo sent on their propaganda line:

Old Forge is in a week or two, we'll have to see what the 'stockers' do
there.
<<<<<<<<<<<snip>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Well, we've got news for the non-believers:  Our MX* Z 800 Standard sled
was quicker than both the Arctic Cat ZR 800 and Polaris XC 800 in the first
shoot-out of this engine's young life.

On November 11, the good folks at the Central Ontario and Snowmobile Drag
Race Association and Bieda's Powersports held the fifth annual Woody's Top
Gun Shootout. They lined up the 800 twins and ran them on a grass track
with the same professional driver and Compulink timing system.  One run was
"box stock," the other with minimal dealer prep.

The MX Z 800, carefully prepped by Gary Potyok crossed the line quickest in
both runs.

Here are the 1,320 foot times, in seconds:

Box Stock:

     MX Z - 11.34
     ZR 800 - 11.395
     XC 800 - 11.627

Dealer Prep:

     MX Z - 11.325
     ZR 800 - 11.569
     XC 800 - 11.816

People have been waiting for this engine with bated breath.  This is just
the latest sign that the wait will be well worth it.

Ya I dont have a lot of faith in any of Biedas "shoot outs"
I remember reading about one that didnt have all the competitive models
there,and usually their "results" dont agree with any other shootout ...

You have to remember that they are a SkiDoo dealer, so it is in their best
interest to have the Doos win. They then have a big sales campaign pushing
all the "shootout winners". On the other hand, they have the same guy run
all the sleds. I'm not sure, but I don't think this is the first time that a
dealer prepped Cat has been slower than stock. Maybe Arnie Schwemmer isn't
the top Cat-tuner in these parts anymore. He has been known to build some
pretty fast Kitties though.

I am assuming that Arnie was the dealer representing AC, am I right?

From what I remember, all the sleds come in the crate, they put them
together, break them in on a stand then run them.  Beida's has a real
nice track and is probably the main reason why they choose to go there.

BTW, Beida's doesn't put the shootout on - it is done through COSDRA,
the Canadian Sled Racing Organization.

I haven't heard too many kind words about Arnie in this neck of the
woods from all my AC buds.
