It's not bad. Everything is there and it runs good. Just another owner that didn't know what WD-40 can do for a sled. It will need a lot of cleaning, wire brush, and some paint touch up.That T-cat looks to be in pretty good shape.
My comment was sarcasm, lol.97/98 ZRT or 98 T-cat will work.
3...roger that.So you bought two or three sleds?? I take you are going to use the bare chassis for a tunnel extension??
Peer Pressure. If thats the case when are you going to get a Hooper 1270 and stick in that T-cat??? lol.Picked up these skids also.
Will remove the extensions from the older skid and use them for the 900. A guy spent some money on this skid and had it mounted in a Yamaha. It has Elka reservoir shocks on it. Never heard of them before, but research shows they are high end shocks. I'll be selling it to pay for both skids. :wink
Though I've had a personal preference for solid rails over extensions for this job, there's a method to my madness this time. Eventually, the 136" skid in my '98 Tcat will probably go in the 900.
The other skid is a 144" from a twin spar touring sled. If all goes well, I will be installing that in my '98. All of the wheels/bearings are like new, but all the arms will have to be blasted and coated. That is a project that probably won't happen til spring though...just not enough time this fall. So, I'll go with extensions on the 900 for now, saving me a little bit of work (relocating brackets) so I can spend as much time as possible making this sled trail-worthy by December.
Finally, when I stretch my '98 to 144", I'll use the tunnel from the ZR for an extension. I really CANNOT wait to ride this chassis, with AGLT, AND a 144" Slide Action skid!! I had wondered about this before, but talking with Jeff this week pushed me over the edge...peer pressure!!!!
again if you never used POR 15, I highly recommend it, in the Gloss Black, it when done right stops rust from ever getting worse or coming back and it wears like Iron, do a little looking at this stuff, I doubt you will find any negatives on itYeah, it's pretty solid. It just has that surface rust everywhere because someone didn't wash it after each ride.
I hope you got them for a good price?? I was thinking about some thing. Why dont you use the tunnel from the ZR3 for the extension and keep the Zrt chassis whole for a back up or another future project??Forgot to mention (Al), i also picked up a pair of Powder Pro skis for this one.
