I know that having the longer track is better in the powder and for take off's cause there's more of the track on the snow at one time ,,,,,,,,but what i don't like , is that i hear you loose LOT's of top end ,, like over 10 to 15mph ,,,,,,,is that true ,,cause i LOVE to rid in powder and my 97 t-cat is WAY to heavy for that kind of ridding ,, so i was thinking of getting another sled ,,,,,,,what do you think

Acadian,
Gonna put a 151 on my T-Cat I have finally figured my sled out in the powder not about to change now. I am gonna wait until the mountain sleds come with the direct drive system before I buy another sled.
Besides there still isn't anything out there that sounds as sweet as the big triple turning 8500 rpm. (I know I have a jaded opinion but I love the sound of my T-Cat climbing hills, music to my ears.)

Yes and No. Depends how much you gear down to accomodate the new track, you can lose a little or alot. Just depends on what you do, you can try different gears in there to find a happy medium. Also if you don't think T-Cats make good mountain sleds, buy a copy of a movie calld Thunderstruck....It will change your mind!!

Acadian,
Are you running stock short track gears? I think that would be something like a 23or 24 top and a 39 bottom. I am running a 15 wide chain with 21 top and 41 bottom. Yes you will loose the ability to hit a buck and a quarter on the lake. I have had my MC upto 115+ on my GPS on the lake. So still got some top end.
