There are issues with the primary clutch on the 850s as well with them binding and wearing out the spring. They have alot more to give with fine tuning.

This was just one day on Big Moose Lake. Another day and it could be totally different results. There was a lot of trail sleds there lining up. All the brands were there running. One of the fastest on pump gas was a Sidewinder setup by D&D ( the Sidewinder that was at the Shootout ). Don't shoot the messenger...lol...........SS

I don't see any of the new 800's being far from eachother including the new cat. As usual it'll come down to the individual machine. Biggest thing to hope for is reliability.

Sled weight means so much stock. It's why the Polaris 800 HO in their lightweight sleds hauls imo

So you put a 100 lb rider in a cat it will be faster?

Which trail studs ? Triggers ? I don't care the outcome either way I'm a poo and cat fan but anybody that has played the ice game can see in that video that is a traction factor. Not a power or speed factor.

Thanks SS.....Let me set the record straight since we had 3 of the 18's out last weekend and all of them have INS carbide trail studs.

As for the dyno, not that it matters but the one in the middle is headed to DTR.
