You wouldn’t think twice about buying another 800etec? So you would buy one without warranty?  
 

that warranty saved you $5k. 

Would depend on the miles.  But something with 3K or less I would. 

 

More than that

800 etecs were generally pretty good but shit happens. I'd have no issue buying one that was properly maintained. Warranties are for cowards. 

Shit happens. None are perfect, just pick a color  Mechanical failures happen all the time. Just ask Woolie and Wince

Over $5k for an engine is insane.

Factory long block 6000 from Cat is $2k and 8000 is $3k.

It wasn't just the engine that had to be replaced. There was an injector and reeds on the mag side that had to be replaced, which are what caused the engine to fail.

1st time I ever had to use warranty for sled. Taking the extended warranty vs $250 in parts and accessories more than paid for itself. 

 

And thanks to Dee's for a quick turn around.  I've had some built up bad feelings towards them for a while, but I shouldn't have aired it out here like I did. Hopefully you will accept my apologies.

I noticed my buddies xc did squat a little.  The assault I tried didn’t move much at all. Though the owner is at least 280 he probably had it cranked up a bit

The assaults are spring stiff.

One of my old riding buddies, Marty Bull, may he RIP, was of the Bull brothers, who owned all the Fastracs.  I gave up on the Old Forge/Tug Hill area years ago, too much traffic for me.  :bc:

Ride 3 this year and close to home for the first time in 4 years and conditions were actually good. A lot of the trails didn’t open until Friday or this morning so traffic was low for a Saturday.

Yep, bit overcast in the bridge pic which was 10 minutes in to the day. Then the skies cleared and temps stayed cold. Great day to ride.

 

And my 2015 Cat now has 2000 miles on it.

RIP to Marty Bull :bc: We do a lot of weekday trips to avoid traffic, and when it gets busy when we're here we get up early and head out to the trails less traveled.

Learning how to avoid traffic and crowds is crucial when you live in New Jersey lol

That looks like a fun area to ride. East side of northern Maine is field riding like that. But will usually have a median strip between n/s or e/w

We don't do the median thing. Its almost all field running here with some roads and the odd bush section.

Put my first trail miles on in 5 years. First time in a trail with either of these sleds. 

Trails were hard as a rock and bombed more often than not. Did some lake running as well. Finally got to stretch the legs. 

So my 08 D7 was topped out at 7900 rpm at 76 mph. It had nothing left to give. On the low end it is snappy and picks the skis up nice and it a ton of fun but zero top end. It was twitchy as a mother fucker on the hard pack. Every corner when on the throttle, the inside ski would lift up way to much and try to throw you off. It is an absolute handful. Also a pig on fuel. I have never owned a sled so bad on fuel, I don't understand why.

The 07 cf6 was way faster then the Polaris. It wasn't even fair on the lake. Pisses me off lol. Unfortunately the rear shocks are toast and bottom out all the time. Going to get them rebuilt this week. But what a great trail machine. So easy to be fast on the trails. Way less effort then the Polaris. Will be even better with the rear shocks rebuilt.

Unfortunately I only took one picture.
