Whats faster?

Is the new XP 900 faster than the new Arctic Cat Wildcat or not. Just curious. Anyone really know? Anyone that has a friend with one and raced. Getting ready to sell my RZR and want the fastest side by side available.

Re: Whats faster?

If all your worried about is speed look at dropping an apex or R1 motor in what you have.

Looking for something brand new where I don't have to worry about frame, suspension. I've made many mods to my Polaris and would like to have a warranty again. I know I'm playing Devil's advocate, but would really like to know what is the factory fastest.

Re: Whats faster?

I've seen the wildcat at glamis, I've seen the videos of the wildcat getting beat, and I've read post on here from some of the vendors about how the arctic cat is lacking in the power dept...search around a little but and you'll find what I'm talking about...they do have a great suspension setup going for them though...I agree with putting an Apex in what you have...look up those videos!

Re: Whats faster?

sounds like the XP is a little faster in the dune climbs.
not sure about hard flat ground.
Wildcat is getting good reviews on the suspension, frame, and roomy cab.
they will both be fun, either way you go.

Re: Whats faster?

I believe if you want the fastest go with the XP. drop new shocks in it and you would have a hell of a ride that is the fastest thing out stock.
Of course I'm getting everything from threads on different site and youtube, so everything may be partial.

Re: Whats faster?

I have seen the wild cat go up old Hill and the xp is much faster in the climb. In the whoops that may be a different story but you said the fastest and thats the XP.

Theres always gonna be someone faster. Even if the artic cat was faster i wouldnt buy one at this point. Polaris has been in the market a while now. They have a massive market share and they are going to put up a hell of a fight to keep it. After watching artic cat fail miserably in the PWC market rather than stepping up their product i have little to no faith in them. Besides it looks like a modified lawn tractor to me.
