I have a 96 ZRT 600 with a 2" 136", it's basically a powder extreme. I ride it about two or three times a year, during spring and fall when the snow sucks.

I have a buddy who still ride's his 99 600 special, it's seen a lot more then most and has never had to be towed back! It was actually the sled that got me into sledding a while back. It's a blast, if he ever sells it I'm going to buy it from him.

Yeah, they're great sleds, I've got a 97' powder special 580, 99' 500, and a 99' 700.

I have a 99 Powder Special 600 EFI. Took it out to West Yellowstone twice last year had a blast and was actually pretty surprised as to how well it did in the pow. However stator went bad while I was out there so I'm waiting for that to get back from being rebuilt. Still a great sled though with 5,000 miles on it.

I agree I have a 99' 500 that my son drives and a 99' 700 that I keep as a spare but my oldest daughter likes using it when we get a big snow day.

Yeah, they do float pretty good in the powder, and they'e not that hard to carve with either. I'm not sure just saying but a powder special 500 could probably keep up with a new Phazer MTX. 16 more HP, (17 for the 01's), weighs 11 pounds less dry, ( probably weighs more wet though since it holds 3.5 more gallons of gas), but the phazer's got the advantage of all the new technology and a longer track. What do you think, Phazer or PS?

That's a great point. I have never thought of that but I would take my powder special any day over a phazer for mtn riding. The phazer's "new" technology like you say I don't think helps it since it weighs more and has less power. If you put the same size track on the PS I think you would be able to do circles around the phazer. Not to mention you could buy 3-5 PS for the cost of one phazer.

Have any of you guys made any mods to yours and if so what? What are you running for clutch setups?
