I have a 2003 500 Scrambler and I am happy with it, of course I like the Predator better, but my Scrambler is a very good quad very good speed and can't forget about the 4 wheel drive it will take you anywhere.Top speed is around 50 to 55

I have a 2002 Scrambler 400X. I have clocked it at 65. It is plenty of fun but the Predator is definetly way faster

I own a Scrambler X 400 and I would say if you are looking for wicked speed you are barking up the wrong tree. Get a Predator, the extra money spent will be worth it. My top speed is around 63 mph.

I have a 01 scrammy 500 4x4 all stock except for a 700 belt, it tops out at 55 running down the highway next to my truck.

My buddy has scrambler 400. My stock 400EX couldnt take it during a drag race on pavement. The pooplaris is pretty fast. Being an automatic, I was impressed how easily the front wheels come off the ground when attempting to wheelie it

I have a 99 400 scrambler, 02 400 X and just got a predator. When I first got my 400 X I was a little disappointed about the speed. My 99 was a tad faster. So after adding a pipe, clucth kit, K & N air filter, and re-jetting it, I can barely keep the front wheels down. Though I have never topped it out on the road to see how fast it is, it is very fast.

a fully tricked out 400 scrammy with HPD race mods on race fuel will
make some cavitys on a predator in a drag race with proper setup,but isn't
no match in term of top speed,but that 2 stroke engine is a blast with the
right mods done and have alot of hp's...

I have a scrambler and a predator. The scrambler is so slow there nothing to compare. It's not built for speed or handling like the predator. My buddies 700 twin polaris runs 62mph on radar and I can blow by him no problem with my scrambler. But They do make a 628 cc bore and stroke kit for the scramble that sounds fast.
