alright now i see some sort of a "turbo" or infront of the engine. It looks like a turbo because that exhaust seems to take a "strange route" towards it.


Is it just me or is that thing a "ZR" chassis with a FCAT hood? look at the belly, thats not from an fcat. I love how ac engineers fastened the speedo and rpm gauge panel with the same strap material used around the heat shields on the exhause pipes.

Its deffinetly a zr chassis, they just used the fcat hood for the "air induction" purposes. Look a the boozo the clown skis on it.

These pics are old. They were floating around the net about 6 months ago, even before the F-cats came out. :wacko: :blink:

Nice touch with the "O.L. chng" Then an oil weigth of "0w-30". They either thought of everything in the hoax, or it's something they have tried.

<_< Why wouldn't they just put a slightly modified 4 stroke Suzuki motorcycle engine in a Firecat chassis? Seems like the most logical combo given the relationship between the two companies.

The thing I've always thought would be the best setup for a 4 stroker in a sled is a BMW horizontally opposed engine. They could keep the weight profile real low and the vibration to a minimum. You know how smooth those things run! Even an engine out of a Honda Goldwing would be extremely cool. 1300 (1100?) CC's of smooth, smooth, power. Fuel inject it and cut back on the weight as much as possible and you have a fast, powerful, and quiet rocketship on snow.

As much as I love the snort of the 2 stroke engine, I know the 4 strokers are inevitable. I just hope they understand it needs to be a crotch rocket just like a great bike. I don't see any reason they can't make it happen. JR
