I have 3 340 arctic cat jags all excellent shape and waiting for snow. I would like to buy one more sled but I want something a little faster but still want cheap and same year range 78-81. I have been looking for a 4000 jag and also discovered the el tigre. If someone could give me a comparison or a little info on the el tigre it would be appreciated. Is the 4000 much faster then the 3000's I have? How does the 4000 compare to the el tigre? There are 5000 and 6000 el tigre, is one a 500 and the other a 600?

ok, i will help you as much as i can, which is just about every thing, all the jag 3000's had either 340 free airs or fan cooledand had 30hp, the jag 4000, which came out in 1981 had a 440 fan cooled motor, oil injected, and about 42hp, the eltigre 5000, was either a 500 free air, or a 500 fan, usually between 62-70hp, i currently have a 78 5000, and probably could see almost 100 out of it, i dont wanna push it, now the 6000's, the 78, 79 and 80 6000 were a 440 liquid, with 70hp, the 1981 eltigre had a 500cc liquid, with an un believable 85hp, which was said to bve the fastest produstion snowmobile of its time,if i could be of any other help let me know!
