The soo, or any races with modified sleds, is really not comparing apples to apples... I love the sound and the speed as much as the next guy, but when you push them as hard as they do, things happen, sometimes bad things. Finishes at the soo don't mean a whole hell of a lot to john and jane trail rider. Polaris wins at the soo, because they put a shitload more money into the jar than anyone else.. simple as that. Anyone on here who says the soo don't matter is absolutely right, at least when it comes to production machines. Make them run stock sleds, and I can guarantee you, the results will be different, and matter more to the consumer.

It's a switch tunnel. The boards are longer and diff. Angle. Also the rear shock tucks in on a shorty.

SO, in summary:

Cat takes the checkered...again.

There may or may not be a pic of an XCR in a 137 (Id bet it is).

And Doug S still thinks his Walker Evans are excellent shocks.

Got it.

look at the tunnel and how long the rails are. Looks like a 137 to me.

Where did that drop out of.

Actually it's the Arctic Cat fox shocks that I prefer. Rebuild more of them each year than any other.

Ah the first Cattard to post in denial. Is Cat's cross country sled what the consumer can use? Spin it any way you want Cat, like you still sucks at the Soo. So let's go to RMSHA then. How well does Cat do with consumer sleds? Does Cat not put a shitload of money in to cross country?

Speed kills. Play it safe. Buy a Cat or Doo.
If it's a Cat it's a dog.

Cats XC sled is a consumer sled. And King of Kings is also a modded Cat consumer sled. Oh and Last years pro lite and Pro open SX sleds were also Cats. Not that it really matters though.....
