are you dealers getting the colors you asked for, or are they briging a green when you asked for a black. i ordered a black one, but im just wondering if a green will come because my dealer said they could not guarantee a color

Your guarantee the color you ordered unless your dealer screwed up ordering yours....or he ordered the wrong color and wants yours

I think it was number 74 that I sat in and drove tonight in Mount Morris, PA. It was Black.

Don't quote me on the production number... I am thinking thats what it was but not 100% sure.

You sat and drove but didn't get pics vids or any review of final clutch, acceleration, nothing? Not like it matters, I'm out of town for 2 days then 1 day at my 2nd job, then it's off to Muskogee to test drive the hell out of one at rt&t

Just looked on the map and the ones that were delivered in pa were over 100 miles farther away from the factory than my dealer still hasnt heard nothing and he is one of the dealers that ordered 10 then all the parts and acc. that cat wanted him to. makes no sense..... they must only have like two trucks delivering these things.they must almost be done delivering east because i know more dealers in the midwest and west ordered the ten that was needed to get the early machine.

Try living in Cali and waiting for the boat to float in! We're all jealous. I still have not seen one in person and my $500 has earned A/C $5.63 in interest already.

I was so excited and blown away I never thought to get pics... My thoughts... Power is bad ass, looks are awesome. Felt comfortable to sit in and drive. Steering felt great as far as it smooth and responsive, BUT you gotta have an open parking lot to do a u-turn. Christ that thing has a turning radius the size of China. Way different than the razor. The only other Bad I could see was the doors. I thought from day one they look cool, but they will probably lot all the mod and water hit you when riding. Also, you gotta slam it and make sure its latched, otherwise when you take off they will fly open on you. My brother said they would not last him one Drunken weekend before they were ripped off.

I was not allowed to take it out in the mud since it was headed back onto their showroom floor. I am anxious to see how it does in mud.

The LED lights were pretty impressive as well. :D

I just got back from my dealer. His staff is off today so I could not bring it home. You have to enter three pin number to set the computer. You can bypass it for up to five hours by pressing the b button soon as you start it or it will limit the rpm. I did get a pretty good test ride in an old coal stripping cut behind his shop. Power is very good,I have a commander x with an airdam clutch and k&t performance box and I would say it would be very close in power. Without a doubt the wild cat will by far out perform it. You can drive it so much harder with much more confidence. The turning radius is substantially more.I had a rzr4 and the turning radius is simular. When you first start it up it smells like cam 2 fuel burning. When I talked to the truck driver last night he said he was from Washington state so he will be heading west with another load.I would PST some pictures but I am not sure how to.I am not much of a computer guy. This is actually the most I have ever been on a computer not bad for an old guy.

I did not get to take the clutch cover off but in the owners manual it mentioned to use only arctic cat oil due to the clutch

THanks for the info! Congrats in being lucky enough to get the dealer display. I'm not sure why dealers are letting those go, but w/e it's theirs to sell. My dealer is keeping theirs so they have a floor model for people to come see so they know what they are buying.

We appreciate you taking the time to express your thoughts - especially given the extra effort. Most of us live on these computers much of the day.

i talked to arctic cat earlier last week, they did tell me that these production models did not get the dry clutch we were working on. they simply said "we never have problems with our wet clutch setup, never had a belt problem, we are working to finalize the wet clutch delete system, and will be implicating changes later on, just not right now"


i slumped in my chair, knowing cat has dropped the ball and put the wet clutch system in the wildcat rather than getting the full wet clutch delete system in them on time. looks like i need to start machining some shafts for my wet clutch delete systems, it appears that they are gonna be a big hit. the closest dealer that is getting a production model to me is nearly 2.5 hours away. whenever someone near me gets a production machine and gets it to me, i can dial in a wet clutch delete system on a wildcat and make them a complete animal.
