I have been wanting a bigger sled lately. I have a 94 Arctic Cat Cougar i could sell. I can spend roughly 2,000 on one. I want one that is pretty fast, turn decent, and can handle being jumped. I would prefer ski-doo or arctic cat. Let me know of any snowmobiles that are good for ditch banging and just riding around w/o to much deep snow.
Thanks, ArcticCatRider

If you want to stick with AC the ZR's are a really good sled for your riding requirements. I believe the '98's are starting to get in that price range, not 100% though. Wouldn't go older then that, although the '97's may of had the same suspension (then that would be ok as well). I can't remember off of the top of my head.

I really don't know that much about Ski-Doo, never been around them.

a 440 sno pro or 440 mxz x sounds like it would suit your riding style if your looking for something bigger than a ZR series cat or a mxz adrenaline. but for 2000, your probably looking at around a 99 to 00 (a 2000 might be pushing the money envelop), unless you find a really good deal on a newer sled. just my .02

dont buy a 440 unless you are very good at tunning engines. buy a mxzx or a mxz adrenaline and revalve the shocks or do the same with a zr.

440's arent as troublesome as everyone makes them out to be. If it is set up, all you need to mess with is jetting every 20 or so degrees, and on my proX, i can do it with a screwdriver, and a pliers in less than 5 minutes. Other than that, regular mainenence like any other sled is needed. When i bought mine it had an 04 motor with 01 carbs, and all the jets were wrong, and I am by no means "very good at tuning" and with a little help from SF, I was at baseline and now my sled is as reliable as any of my friends sleds. Newer/older race or trail.
