    Only sled that gave my 97 ZRT 600 fits was a early build 97 XC700 that thing was fast ! I never raced a F3 . I think it would have been close race stock but I think the AC suspension transfers better .

    Out of my small fleet of 90's era sleds, the FIII is my favorite...even more so than my Vmax4. I would sell the Vmax if someone wanted it. It hasn't been started in 2 yrs. Just sitting in storage.

    I honestly have never ridden an SRX 700.

    I never had the opportunity to ride a Mach 1 either. How did the 670 rotary valve engine compare to the FIII?

    That thing was brutal to start so we put a larger diameter starter on! The 670 ran good, but the FIII was a good match for it.

    Well after 2 years it is almost done
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]I have installed the roll bar and made some rear interior panels. Hopefully it stays warm enough to keep the top off for a few weeks. I would like to find a bikini top for it but they dont seem to exist.

    FIII will smoke a 670 rotax, been there, done that. My buddy had the 97’ formula with that ExpertX style suspension.......when we traded sleds, he wouldn’t give mine back!

    She’s still running like a top with 18k miles.

    Still have my “Free” Leather when I bought the sled too!
