Unwilling to accept that Summer is knocking on the door?
Same with me.
Maybe we can take a cue from Arctic Cat Engineering and convert our sleds for summertime fun?
Or better yet, how about we all agree to ride to the 50th Anniversary Celebration? That’s what I’m talking about!
In case you are wondering, the radiator is used to keep the engine cool when Engineering and Field Test riders make laps on the Arctic Cat Test Track, located a block south of the main plant in Thief River Falls.
That’s Gary Homme (above) working on the prototype F1100 Turbo inside of Engineering last summer. Homme can fabricate/craft/create just about anything.
The PVC structure on the rear is filled with slide lubrication, allowing a slow-drip on the hyfax to prevent it from melting.
It’s been five weeks since my last ride, and already I’m fired-up to flip the throttle. Maybe I can con Arctic Cat into allowing me to make some laps the next time I’m in town?
