Nice rig for sure. Wildcat pilots get super muddy, lol. Some front fenders are a must and the rears offer zero protection.

Ehh, not impressed at all with those Arctic Cats. Did you consider a Rzr at all when you were shopping?

also with jumping the WC flys Much Flatter then the RZR's do

No bias I own a rzr s but Id have a wc in a hearbeat if I didnt ride so many narrow trails. Ive ripped off my fenders a few times in 400 miles. The suspension over the woops is much better in the wc. The only drawn backs is it's width and lack of driver protection from mud.

Nice rig man. Looks like you picked up what meets your needs and works best for you. Looks pretty nasty!

Wasn't trying to be rude or talk ****, sorry if anyone took it that way...

I agree with the suspension, Arctic Cat definately hit a home run in that dept., it's alot smoother compared to a stock Rzr except through the deeper whoops from what I've seen. I just don't like the length & width of it & the lack of mud/water/spray protecion all around, otherwise I think it's a cool UTV. I also love the fact that there's more options for UTV's now instead of a Rhino or a Rzr, maybe prices will start to come down a bit. I'd love to rip one around the sand dunes.
That's cool that it flies through the air flat, that's the #1 thing I don't like about Rzr's. If I don't hit a jump just right then my *** end will come up really high, scared the **** outta me the first time it happened, I though I was going all the way over, lol. I've learned how to make it fly flat now, took a bit of practice though.

He just bought it and then had to come back to work. No real trail reports yet, but I am sure he will be testing it out in another week or two (depending on his rotation).

Didn't even know Arctic Cat made a Go Cart. Looks pretty cool. Dunno why they stole the WildCat name though?

**** sorry did not see this reply.

i Love my wild cat after alot of clutch work wish i would have waiting for the wild cat x so i would have the Team CLutches but i have put a good amount of miles on it now with the 31s swaped down to 26's for the smooth ride only issues i have had is the clutch sucks on the 12 and that the door latches seem to come undone alot and ended up ripping one off screamin down the trail.


Needs more power but everything does

but not going to spend 20k on the new rxr 1000 but if moneys not and issue i would go with the rzr 1000 as they are now using a similar design in suspesion.
