:huh: I was about 1/4 of amile into a 50 mile race this weekend when ( totally out of the blue) my hood exploded, and my riser blocks imploded!!! :blink: Now I have been a member of this forum for over 3 months , and have not read a single thread about this happening to any other members!!! I would appreciate it if somebody would come clean on this topic :angry: I can't beleive that this could be a isolated incident!!!

I can only hope that my dealer, and Cat will stand behind this troublesome sled and replace my hood, handle bars, windshield, and coolant bottle, with NO questions asked ( I can hope :ph34r: )

I have never heard of anything like this happening to a poo!!

This Firecat is really starting to piss me off....

Looks to me like a fellow racer was a little intimidated by the F7 and did some sabotage to your sled!! :p

In all seriousness, I hope the dealer has some idea and you get it taken care of. You're the first one to report something like that.

I don't like accusations...just keep that in mind.

BUT...when you post on Monday that you rolled your sled last weekend in a Terrain-X race, (post #42090) then come with this explode/implode stuff on Wednesday, it really isn't believable, and wastes everyone's time.

If it happened, thats the shits. If it didn't,...well...you kinda look like like an idiot.
Good Luck anyway ^_^

Hey get real things like this don't happen just out of the blue. Your sled looks a lot like the one on a site called crashed toys and that one was flipped and landed hard upside down. Hope you didn't get hurt and have insurance. As far as i know on one has experienced this just riding in a race and anytime you race your sled the warranty is void, so artic cat i am sure will tell you that you are on your own.

:p Hey Wicked King....

The roll happened at the Terrain-X race .....where I finished a stunning 10 out of 10....after God smiled on me and gave me the number one starting positon on the starting grid..... Don't let my dry humor ( excuses ) fool ya....

I was headed into turn three when i was hit by a meteorite....( there I go again ) OK OK OK ..... I freakin rolled it!!! Alright!!!! :(

$1,110 dollars and some back orders later.......I should be fine

To the A-hole on the poo I collided with in turn three...... UP YOUR EDGE!!!! :angry:

Anyway King you got me :ph34r: :ph34r:

My brother and I tore it down last night......Isn't as bad as it looks. Tunnel looks good...Having it checked by dealer just incase....also having the oil pump fixed........ Hood is on back order, as well as the windsheild.

My brother, being a ebayer, picked up a hood for 299.00. That will have to do until my team green gets in.....besides with a few races left it might not be a bad idea to run the cheepie until the season is over ;) ya never know.......

I think I am going to change my story to " I hit a moose in the pits " :D

Oh and FireBall....it's EXPLODING hood....and IMPLODING risers....geez...your going to ruin my chances at warranty coverage.... :D
