In 96, 97, and 98 the Storm was a 800 not a 750.
In 98 the 700 XCR was just as fast as the Storm which was discontinued after 98 in favor of the 800 XCR.
It sounds like you have a soft spot for the Storm. It was an OK sled but the 800 XCR ended up being a much better 800 engine.

You didnt really specify a year... Next time you might wanna do that instead of saying people dont understand what you mean. Its hard to read minds.

What's so hard to understand?????? In his opinion the storm 750 ran better than the storm 800. Obviosly he meant the 800 as a storm because the thread is titled 88-98, there was no other 800!!! It sounds to me like ERICK didn't know the storm was a 750 before it was a 800.
Now back to the thread. 94 storm was probably the best storm built. The 98 XC 700 wasn't much slower along with the ultra SPX. My heart belongs first to the XCR but second to the indy 650. Anyone have one for sale?

I do know the Storm was a 750 first but the title of the thread was (What was the fastest polaris sled from 1988 to 1998).
It sounds like storm750 is looking for our opinion on that subject.
In my opinion the 98 XCR 700 was the fastest sled even if the Storm was an 800 at the time.
I wasn't looking for an argument just stating my opinion.

I have owned a bone stock '96 Storm 800, which could beat 750 Storms any day, and now have a '98 XC700 that would spank either one of them. Those things where TANKS!!!

isn't 98 when polaris tuned the 700's down a litl bit. i thought the 97 700 xc (square body style) was faster. they tuned them down the next year because there was alot of problems with them running to hard and hot and people blowing them up. The ultra's which was actually a 680 triple were pretty bad machines too but they were also heavy.

97 xc700 was limited build, wasnt really a production sled as far as i know.

if you get a early 98 xc700 it will have the same jugs, 220's compaired to what ever the later 98's had, i think 847's? not sure.

my 98 is a 220, so its the same engine as a 97'.

Id say the '98 700 XC was the fastest sled Polaris made during that time. It didnt have the same horsepower that the Storm and 700/800 XCRs made but it was a lot lighter.
In '99 they detuned the 700 to gain better reliablity (I never heard of the '98 700s having reliability issues, but whatever...). There was a night and day difference from my brother's '98 700 XC and my '99 700 XC SP.

I agree the 98 xc was the best sled you could buy at the time from any manufactuer. I loved my buddys and bought a 99 gen II that was rumered to be detuned, after some clutch changes she was pretty darn fast. You could hit the throttle at 90 and blast up over a hundred in almost any condition. The 700 twins pretty much ended the triple era. My 03 pro-x 6 small block is a great sled but I never forgot the raw power and torque of the big block 700 xc. Then I rode a2002 MXZ800...thats another story. Just bought a cleanfire 600IQ but haven't really ridden because of lack of snow.

If you had an Ultra with aftermarket pipes there wasn't much that would touch them..

1998 xc 700 as far as pull your arms out of socket torque....across the lake I agree, a tripple piped Ultra is hard to beat

Three of us had 1997ultra spx-se and those thing would fly from 35 mph and up pass 125 on speedo.Guys running 800 storms would say that we had engine work done.
