AC Thundercat 1000 longterm experiences?

Hi guys. I am thinking about buying a thundercat 1000. Who has longterm experiences with the big cat? How about general durability, reliability, technical quality...? Would be great to get some feedback.
Best regards.
Your Arctic Rider from Germany

Search for 1000 VS 700 . There was a lot of info from owners that you might enjoy. Nice "camo" on the XC 450!

I have a 2012 1000GT with small lift/31" laws and approx 1,500 kms now with no issues. Not really long term but has served me well, much better then my 700 MP

Sounds good so far. Tell me again after another 10.000km . If still no major issues then I hunt for the big cat

Almost all the guys that could give you the "long term" answers you're looking for about the TC's don't hang around this site much anymore these days.

I'm not sure where they are now and as for why they left, I think I just keep those thoughts to myself at this time.

LOL slim chance that I would own it that long. I would have no issue upgrading to a newer model year though Cat 1000.
