today my brother and i took our sleds on a lake to find out top speed. he has a 04 zx fan and i have a 05 rev fan and both were just studded today. when we lined them up, my brother took off and was about 2 sled lengths ahead of me, but after about a hundred feet, i slowly started to gain on him and after about 1000ft i would end up about three/four sled lengths ahead of him. on my speedometer i got to a topspeed of 87mph and my brother topped out at 85. i weigh 135lbs and he is 160, but that didn't matter because when we switched sleds, he beat me with my rev. my low windshield and the rev being 10lbs lighter is probably the reason it's faster, or maybe the 05 has more power. what doo u think?

It's about time!


Nice to see you're having some fun...

I've had mine up to only 70 or so so far, not broke in yet and not good conditions either. Don't expect a whole lot more, got a lot of track to turn. Bet I can get you off the line though...

Not to be a jack "edit for bad language" or anything, but why did you turn your 550 fan into a 136''? I mean, isn't that sacraficing alot of power with the fan? It needs all the power it can get i'm sure, and with the longer track, isn't she suffering? -chris

ps...i'm not offending you in anyway...

HMMM let me see.... 3-4 sled legths??? thats an aweful lot isnt it.... also im sure that if you did get beaten when he was driving your rev it was because you let off the gas to let him go by..... hmmmm..... also are you sure hes not 175 and not 160..... and also that your sled is ten pounds lighter.... that makes all the difference in the world.... well see how you turn out next year when he has a 600.... if he gets one....

It would save confusion if you just called it what it is, an Expedition Fan.

Ya just about as true as someone seeing Elton John thumbing through a Hustler.
