Voodoo,
If your used to riding a HTG1000 you might be a little disappointed with that T-kitty. They do ride nice and handle better, compared to the older ones though.
You will be bummed when a properly tuned XCR800 goes by you though

Sorry Mitch,
A friend of mine has an extremley good running 02
T-cat (ported,pipes) , I have ridden it and it's fricken fast, it puts my 800 to shame BUT two other friends have XCR800's (heads , reeds) and they will run with the cat up top. In a drag race the cat wins just because it hooks better.
We tune our sleds in a marked area with a radar trap.
Come on Mitch you don't even have studs on that thing Come ride at my cabin this year , our trials have turns in them !! Not like those UP freeways !

I've finally got mine in he shop Chuck, for the frame tweek, Got most the parts at home waiting. 2000 MXZ 700, I really want the new style mxz 800 though. If lake st clair freezes good this year my place makes a good warm up spot, and is a 2 minute ride from all the races behind bud's, then hit the tin fish. On weekends when we dont go north we do the bar tours just as if it was summer boating, a few years ago, we did all the bars by bud's, to Tin fish, Lago's, Garwoods, Jacks, back to a friends on lakeshore dr, back to lago's, to my place. But we havent had good ice in two years. I winterized the boat motors last night, and the jet ski's are tonights project, lets get a cold snap that lasts till early april, thats when it magicly turns 85degrees and humid and stays that way till october again, how's that for a forecast??

An OSO ride sounds like a great idea

Mitch,

Got your pm. We will RIDE this winter! I have to agree. A PROPERLY tuned XCR 800 WILL eat a T-Cat for lunch and send it back to the litter box, tail between the legs.
