Atv salesmen are just like car salesmen, dont know shit about what they sell! Just tell the customer what they think he wants to hear. Don't be so gullible lol! The T-cat is old news it has been out for two model years now, it has 66 hp and cant hold a candle to the new polaris 850 with 70 hp. Its faster than a rzr because it weighs about 400 lbs less Razz Its twice as fast as a whino lol! So if you want to go faster than a RZR, buy you one. beat roflmao

I am waiting on the mud cat to come out by artic cat. It come fatory snorkeled and with 28" mud tires I beleive. ANd to beat everything they are still offering a warrenty to boot. That 1000 has a lower ground clearance by about 2" from the other a/c. It just does not appeal to me at all. Not for what I do anyhow.

The mud cat should be out by now, saw them in a mag, snorkes and a lift kit on the 700 h1 model it should do good if they geared it down some.

They are nice to keep the wind off of you.
But they do scratch easy, but should last for a year or two.

It would be the new Sportsman, hands down if I were buying another wheeler. Right now, I am holding what I got and seeing if they wise up and drop that 850 motor into the RZR. Then I may consider a new toy.

They had some issues with the Thundercat when it first came out, but I do hear that it is one fast machine. I still like the idea of the newly built Polaris. It is completely different than any machine they have ever made. I have talked to a couple that rode it and they say it is unbelievable. I would like to have an extra 10k sitting around so I could buy one. I love my King Quad, but the extra speed and power steering would be nice.
