So Mr. ProXpilot, enlighten us all of what else you have seen? And then go ahead and say that you've never seen a recall or breakdown from the other manufacturers. Yeah, that's what I thought. Same old stories from the same old retards. I think the non-Cat guys are getting sick of being whooped on......

03' wasnt the first year for firecat. thats the sad part, when the litter box makes somethin reliable, maybe then i will think about purchasing one , but when i get stuck pulling them home because their. shocks break, a-arms snap off the bulkhead. when you dont have to hang them strait up and down to bleed the oil system cuz the factory dont know how......you can keep them... they cant even make skis. they cant even make their own motors

i see, jeez, 7 years i've been runnnin cats, and so far the only things that have went wrong with any of mine is a crank on a 95 340 high miler and a clutch on my zr 700 - bad batch of aluminum, the first owner didn't get it recalled. it was a recall on the site. 03 was the first year for a production model firecat, 02 they were onl;y built for snowcross, which is a much different application than ditch banging. Hmmm one recall ya say, thats odd, i've seen more than one recall for the pro x's on the message boards, you must have missed em. oh ya and having to hang it up and down to bleed the oil system, i think not pal.

Arctic cat

First of all, proXpilot, Lets see some pics of ur 180 piece. Then lets see some pics of it blowing by F7's. I know for a fact a stock F7 beat a stock ProX 800. I've seen it twice bud. It was pretty. Give a holla out to all the Cat fans who know where its at. Arctic Cat used to be better than polaris, is better than Polaris, and will always be better than polaris. yup.
