962 needs more rpm to run with BIL's saws. Going to run 7 tooth next race.

A lot of times even if they are long ported for torque they cut better with a 7 instead of an 8 .You still have to keep those r's up in the sweet spot power band .

TW sent it out with an 8 on it. I tried it, didn't like it. 7 next time. Also didn't want to show the BIL all it had.  ;) We race in Sept. Will post video.

Just for comparison the 962 is approx 2.5 seconds behind my old TW 260.

Here is the 962, kind of disappointed in this saw. Down on rpm and torque. Not what I was expecting. Both of my woods port 361's could beat the BIL's 365. 962 can barely run with his 346.

You can hear the difference in the 962 and 365 in the wood, the 962 falls off when hit wood. Your not running a 8T and really aggressive chain on the 962 are you?
Is the 361 runs on your utube too?
