Just wondering if the 8" wheel kits make any difference in top end or fuel economy. Anybody have some first hand experience with them?

Thanks.

FWIW, I added 8" idlers to an '02 mountain cat, along with 10 tooth drivers, and a 141" (from 136"). The differences in rolling resistance are huge. You can push this sled across flat ground, and the track just rolls easy...

This does not neccessarily mean a performance improvement. There were too many other variables changed to make any comparisons with how it was before. Still, less rolling friction can't be a bad thing...(unless you park on a hill...)

If there was a decrease in rolling resistance than you will notice and increase in performance
