Sled: 11 cf8le-T, 2012 m800
07-08 Mileage: 3500

ATV: my KAYAK
As someone who rides a cf1000 for mountian riding only, ZERO trail, I can tell you a few things make a big difference in how this sled works in the deep. I can honestly say that I have been stuck less with my cf than I was with my M's.
The number one thing that makes a difference is the powerclaw. Plain & simple, the 141 powerclaw will outrun a 153 challenger & would destroy that backcountry.
Between track & softening the secondary, there is no reason to be unhappy with that sled. I also find that running the front shock a little stiff & rear shock a little softer to allow the sled to transfer works well for me in the soft snow.
All I can say is, setup, setup, setup.... This sled rips in the deep.
