I got the ZR 9000 Limited and did a track swap to a 1.6" and love it. Can't imagine 0.15" would be much different. I didn't go with the Cross Country as I wanted a more comfortable seat/riding position for big miles in the upper peninsula. (Only difference is mountain seat and handlebars really once you swap the track- less that little $100 rack on the cc). They handle like a slot car and cruise extremely smooth. One person commented that they feel "electric" and that sums it up well.

I have the cross country with the 1.75 track and 1.86 triggers in it. The track works awesome without the studs and I love it even more with the studs. Haven't had any issues with studs hitting anything either and I've ridden some rough trails. Love the seat as it is way softer then the ZR seat.

With stock gear they hit a brick wall around 100mph. You know there is more they but they just stop climbing. I have 1.6" with 2 studs down the middle- did a couple full pull runs in snow with 500-700 miles on break in and best I saw was 98-100( I weigh 245lbs). 185lb buddy on stock TCat with standard 1.25" could only see 105 ( same mileage and conditions). The cats need more gear like the sidewinders received. Torsional secondary set up should also help it overdrive a bit more from what I've read thus far.

Those are pretty disappointing numbers, especially if that's on the dreammeter. Not what I wanted to hear. I hit a top speed of 113 on my 15 1200 Renegade, all stock, just clutching. That was on the dreammeter also.

I'm going to need to do some more research before I want to commit to one of these.

What track were you running on your 1200? Wife has a 16 mxz and is a flyweight. Would like to know what magic recipe you used on your all stocker to see 113.
