Before you fog it mix some Sta-Bil in a 3/4 full tank of fuel, that way it will run in the engine and go in all the injectors and lines, fog it down till it quits. Then siphon it down and spray some engine fogger in the tank real good and quick close the cap so it traps all that goo and fog in there. This is my kind of cosmoline method. Take the drive belt off, And spray the clutches with WD-40, all those steel pins in there can rust, the clutch faces can corrode. Lift the back off the ground and loosen the track. Take the hood off and tape up the intakes and tape shut the exhaust can to prevent critters from getting a free rent apartment in your sled. Put moth balls and dryer sheets all over the place to keep the critters away. Get some cedar chips or scrap cedar wood and dump it all under the track after it's in the air and leave it hang. The cedar chips will keep some moisture away. Put the skis on a couple of 2x 4's, the carbides will rust stain your floor. Cover them with a bed sheet, preferably white with no dye's, not plastic, that doesn't breath.
And have a good trip.
Owning a Thundercat is like having a totally hot wife..... All of your friends want to see it, feel it and check it out..... They all want to know what it is like to ride it, but if they only knew how much time and money it takes to keep one up, they would call you a fool!

"Of all the 850 vs Sidewinders/Thundercat/ZR 9000's; you are the first I have ever heard that beat one. I know the 850 is strong but it's down 30 hp from the turbo sleds.
I have a low slung fully built( by a well know engine builder) 3 cylinder 800 cc that made multiple dyno pulls over 200 hp on a calibrated Land and Sea dyno and I barely pull my buddy on his stock Thundercat. And I do have video."
