ZR's are great! Love my 14 ZR 7000 limited so I can't wait to thunder down the trails with the 17 Thundercat 9000. Arctic insider had this to say
"Drag racing against the Arctic Cat 8000 ZR (which by all accounts has been the quickest/fastest of the 800/850 models at Snow Shoot), it’s not even close. The Turbo smokes it.

Well, I would certainly hope it does... Considering the 800 H.O. Has been DOWN a few horses since 2011 season..

Ai huh.....? Funny, some of the articles John writes over there..

It is too bad that they detuned the 800 motor, but we have seen even better life out of them.

I ended up doing the shock upgrades on my '15 137" 800.(wow, that is a lot of numbers). Anyhow, the sled did rock with upgrades.

I also rode a '16 800 with the short track for a couple of days this past winter on brutal trails. I was impressed with the ride on that sled in the rough.

I am not surprised that the critics liked the ride on these setups. They are better in the rough junk at speed than any stock sleds I have seen.

I ordered the RR 137", and will try it stock for the first long trip. It might end up staying stock.

Does anyone want to buy four thousand bucks worth of shocks? I do have quite a few that I have had made over the past few years.
