Default 110 MPH on the Ice

This past weekend I went up to Houghton Lake Michigan and was able to reach 110 mph while crossing the mostly snow-free lake on my stock 2005 Firecat F7. The only modification was my studded track. The lake is 5 miles across and it took a bit (mostly of nerves) to get it pegged at that speed.

Not to bust your bubble but if that;s a speedo reading you were probably only going about 95-100.

I had my old XLT speedo up around 110-115 but I know it wasn't going that fast.

Good ole GPS unit in the pocket will tell you exactly how fast you can go.

I know for a fact that a 2003 F7 will top 107mph. I'm not sure about a 2005.

the 2003 F7 was a bullet compared to the 2005. It's arguably the fastest F7 built.

the GPS is nice as you do not have to watch it. it will still display top speed when you are done rolling because you took your eyes off the road to try and read a vibrating speedo.
