The new wildcats look pretty mean too. I know nothing about them though.

heh.
id stay away from em for a year or two.

cats lately have a terrible reputation for first ear/second year products.

you should see how long the list of recalls is for their 2012 snowmobiles.

Ouch...good to know. I'm not really interested in getting a SxS anyway, so I'm not too worried about it. It would be cool because they're street legal here in AZ so that'd make it double the fun, but the only way I would have bought one is if i hadn't bought my Raptor.

i would stay clear of the wildcat prowler(sxs) had tons of issues, bad fires and all. the wildcat just came out so its got some bugs to work out. it does have better suspension than the rzr but it is much slower.

If the suspension is a lot better than the competition the slower motor might not be a huge hindrance, at least not in the rough stuff. It'd be a drag everywhere else though.

Yeah just from looking at it, it's a desert beast. It's not going to be happy on narrow trails or anything like that, but it looks like it'd flat out rip some big desert whoops and jumps.

There's always that. I'd be seriously pissed spending that much just to have it break.

Yeah no kidding, you've hardly given it a good shakedown and the warranty is ending. That does suck.

there are videos of it trying to go up dune hills. the rzr goes up it and the artic cat has to turn around. it just cant power up it. there are a few vids like that. still worried about the QC too
