Anything would be an upgrade from my 94 Artic cat EXT580.

it's not the fall that kills you, it's that sudden stop

Might not be able to ride them much around here , but I still sell a ton of the interceptor snowmobile oil. So everybody must take them up north to ride.

Been getting calls already.

I think Kegger has a sled in his garage. I seem to remember a thread about it.

Which one did you get?

Their current chassis (Rev XP) is nice and very lightweight. Two of the guys I ride with have an 800R Renegade and one has a Summit. Very nice machines that do really well, on trail or off.

BRP also seems to be setting the bar these days, as 2s direct injection goes.

I got the 2013 800 TNT. this years 800 comes in the new rev xs chassis. I looked at the 2012 and 13 side by side and thought the new style looked better. The price difference was under $900 so I figured I might as well go with the 2013.
I cant wait to ride it. My brother has the 600 etec and I thought it rode great, this will just have more braaap!

I'll keep you in mind, I have a gallon and a half of the Ski Doo synth to use up first though.

Thanks

Nice!

Not sure who you usually ride with, but there are a few guys on here we head north with from time to time.
