Default First time swinging the 600

Was shooting for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway this weekend. In the past I had never ventured above 400mm f/2.8 - although I had added a 2x TC to that a few times.

This time I bonded with the 600 f/4 and tried adding a 1.7x to that one.

In order
D3s with 600mm
D500 (crop sensor) with 600mm (900mm FOV)
D3s with 600mm & TC-17e II (1020mm)
D3s with 600mm & TC-17e II (1020mm)
D500 with 600mm & TC-17e II (1530mm FOV)
D500 with 600mm & TC-17e II (1530mm FOV)
The EXIF is in there.

I did better than I thought I would. C&C welcome.
Thanks.

They're all great but 2&3 are my favourites.

1 and 3 are awesome. The others are great too but 1 & 3 are the bomb.

My question as a side is why did you use the 600mm on the D3s and D500? Why not just on one, like the D3s, with a 400mm or so on the D500 lets say?
