700 secondary spring and weight change...

First off I want to thank UTV CRAP for my new secondary sheave spring. I just changed out my orange epi spring for a purple epi spring and shaved my duner kit weights to exactly 18g with the cover on. Before I shaved them they were 18.7-18.8g. My shift point was 42 and now it is 46 thanks to the weights. Granted I have not made an exact tune for my car yet(tomorrow), but it's pretty close, I was shocked in the difference already. I could practically break loose my Bighorns on the asphalt( I also have internal clutch springs installed keep in mind). Going down my street with the old setup I could only hit 40 before I ran out of street, now I can hit 46 with ease. Long story short without the B.S. I am super pleased with the results so far. Tomorrow I am going to make a new fuel map for my car and I can test this setup alittle bit more. Also tomorrow I will post top speed results. I recently changed to the MSD but before with my old setup I could hit 61. Just for the peeps that don't know I have an 08 700, exhaust tip, grinded welds, msd, afe intake, modified sheave and duner kit. More testing and more results to come. Thanks again UTV CRAP. Nick and Steve it was nice meeting you guys.

Lighter weights do give you some gain when you have a sheave that is machined too much, they don't allow the rpm to drop so bad.

Found that out the hard way.

I have the orange spring, but have never installed it - still running the stocker.

Well the 700s have potential but it is a matter of just tuning it right. You have the displacement that most people with the 660 want plus the f.I that is a plus also. Just don't tell Mike (dirtthumper) to much or it is going to cost me some cash. I'm not a hater I like to run with people that are faster cause it makes me drive harder and charge **** that's what makes it fun.

The 700 has tons of potential if setup and tuned properly. They should be able to smoke a 660 but can't. I am trying to render that problem and help the average joe go faster without opening up the motor. For Mike my lips are now sealed. I will not return his PM's. LOL
When you and I went to Silverwood that was still one of my best rides to date.

Well listening to all the tuning to the clutch makes me wonder if I can fine tune mine alil better to get it to hook up on the bottom more....time will tell but I can't wait to see your rhino run with that L.T and your chit running stronger than ever.

The silverwood run with you and Rory (quadcartel) was one of the faster and just all out rides I have been on. That is one of the 3 rides that top my list and hopefully more to come
