Thats what it stands for back in the old day is experimental. Now it stands for extra long tunnel on the saber cats and firecats. If you wanna know the history of anything arctic cat in 70's go to bosscatlegacy.com Click on extras and go threw all the stuff. Tells you production numbers hood styling the whole 9 yards. Early ext's where just a puma with the hood cut open with a hot rodded motor. 72 they came out with a eltigre style hood but the gauges where molded into the hood. 73 year which I think was the best year of all had a real pointed hood with green tear drop decals down the sides of the hood with big letters EXT on the front. early ext motors where red tag motors they call them. the tag on the motor was in red letters instead of black. 1972 T3A440R2A. The next year they had dual spark plugs on the 440 and they where T7 motors. EXT motors where T7A44RX1 the letter A is for 73 for the twin plug motors. The eltigre had T7A440RS1 74 they did not make a EXT and 75 came around they built the Z for 75 76 and 77 it was the ZZ then after that sno pros. In the mid 90's cat came back with the EXT and the EXT special the EXT on its return in the ZR body in the mid 90's was the same sled as a ZR but had oil shocks instead of gas from 95-97 then it was the same sled as the zrt with oil shocks instead of fox. Sadly the 98 year the EXT was put to rest again to be brought back in the 03 as a version of the firecat and saber cat.

That is a great web site. Lots of information. But I myself knew most of that. I raced a '72 290 EXT and then a '73 340 EXT. In '76 we then put a 250 top end on it. Man I fun back then!

They only made less then 100 of 290 EXT's. I been a sled junkie my whole life. Growning up I remember my uncles and my dad talking about being at Eagle river Derby back in the 70's watching the sleds race. Some of the last photos floating around on websites for the RTX sno pro Skiroules of GIles my uncle took. I do not own any rare race sleds from the time period I do know alot about them someday hopefully I will get a couple.
