lol........im sorry .....I've never been a Cat fan, and I just think those sleds are so ugly....cat had to copy Yamaha with their head light style, and they just slaughtered it. I will have to admit that the american flag decal edition F7 looks pretty sweet
Who cares about Yamaha?! As I see it, Arctic Cat has the better light design (mainly because I don't like Yamahas) And those firecats are pretty sweet. Can't beat them graphics, and it's nothing to get offended about if he don't like it. haha. But anyway, nice sleds!
Sorry to burst your bubble. But I really took off from my friend who has the MXZ 600 H.O.
We raced across a frozen lake. His speedometer said 110 when I passed him after giving him a head start. And, he weighs 40 lbs less than me.
110! Dang thats way too fast. I hope you guys checked things out for ridges and bumps before you did that.
A guy that had a thundercat on our lake almost died a few years ago when he hit a small bump he didn't see going 110+. He was airlifted to the hospital where he almost died. He had an M-10 and everything imaginable on that sled. Now he still has 2 thundercats and had not driven either of them for 3 or 4 years now. Won't sell them either since he doesn't want anyone else to crash em.
Actually, yes. That was something I was VERY afraid of. So what I did was go across the entire lake at 40 to 50 mph. I made sure to be comfortable with the lane I chose so I could go that fast on the final run. That is something EVERYONE should do when they plan to go full throttle.
yeah, my dad knows a guy who was going across a lake about 8-10 years ago on his Yamaha Phazer and he hit a pressure crack...he went flying over the hand bars and broke both thigh bones....and a buncha other sled....pretty much totaled his sled as well
A buddy of mine crashed his thunder cat two weeks ago when we got our first big snowfall here in Iowa(3in. of drifting snow). He was flying across a sod farm at about 105 when he hit a small divit and went flying head over heals off his sled. He popped his shoulder way out of place and broke the hood on his sled, but he was really lucky to walk away from something like that. It's always a good idea to check the terrain before flying across it.
