840 vs prowler 1000 results..

i finally got to race a new prowler 100 today...im still fighting getting my teryx tuned right and i had to drop my needles this morning before going riding.anyways it runs alot better but still not 100 %.anyways i was riding and then in the afternoon i had run into my friend that bought the new 1000 and he wanted to race...i was kinda not wanting to because mines not exactly right but i cant turn down a challenge.anywaysi have recently installed 2 925 batterys...a complete stereo with sub wooffer and a rear cargo box with about 30pounds gear in it and cooler with 18 cool ones in it[michelob ultra]!!anyways onto the race.....its a new arctic cat prowler 1000 with 200 miles on it with no mods what so ever.we raced 3 times and i can honestly say....its no race.my 840 busted his floater with ease.i pull him hard from the word go.i am so impressed with my teryx i cant express enough.even though ive had a hard time getting it right.im still tuning.we raced to about 60 mph and its no race...i was actually 3 to 4 utvs ahead.....

Yeah you have had a time tuning that thing! I'm right there with ya so don't feel bad. Mine is running alittle rich but still hauls the mail. I liked my teryx before the 840 but the kit has totally changed the ride experience. To those wondering about whether they want an 840 or not....words don't do it justice.

yea you should have seen the mans face that bought the new 1000 thinking its the fastest thing on the hill when i busted his floater 3 times straight....it wasnt even close neither time.i think i could spot him 3 lengths and let him get the jump..and this made me feel so good after i have though about crushing this thing because of the tuning issues ive had..the pain was worth the plessure!!i like to hear when a stranger says to me[man what have you done to this thing]!!!!i always say cdi -exhaust and a K+N filter of course.!!!

I was racing at the little sahara and I made two passes against some razors and some teryxs all at the same time. The closest was another teryx and he pull up and said,,,"You gotta big bore in that?" I couldn't help but laugh and said yep. He said "I gotta get one!" Turned out to be a super nice guy. I never thought to tell him about the forums though.
