That's pretty sweet, but it's kinda getting to the point where the front end can't keep up with the rear.

I have a ZR 900 sno pro now but I am kinda thinking about ordering the orange King Cat. I trail ride in New Brunswick, but If a fella shaved that track down to 1 1/4, would it ever hook up. That long of a track is pretty trail friendly too, awesome over the bumps, hooks and goes. What do all of you think about the King Cat as a trail sled?

IMO, it'd be a terrible trail sled. Could even be getting to the point where it'd be a tough mountain sled to handle. But w/o riding something w/ that long of a track, i wouldn't know i guess.

I took a trip out to utah to do some mountain riding in january. we rented skidoo 800s and i rode both 144 and 151 tracks. generally we would ride the trail up into the mountains and branch off for some true mountain riding. I found that the longer track was much harder to steer on the trail, and the track on the king kat is 11 inches longer than the longest i rode, so there is no doubt in my mind that it would make a terrible trail sled. Frankly, i found that the longer track sleds were harder to handle even in the deep stuff, and i prefered the 144" track over all.

actually doo's got the biggest footprint next year:

doo 159x16 = 2544 sq in

cat 162x15= 2430

doo 151x16= 2416


the cats got more power, but the doo rev with its lighter weight and wider track will climb on top faster (like a boat coming up on plane), both nice sleds

I have a 900 M/C with the 159x2 track. Never thought I would have one that long but after I got used to it I love it. Not the greatest on the trail but we don't stay on those very long out here.
