Did anyone hear what the problems were on Morgan's open sled last weekend. I read that he had trouble with the front suspension, but I did not hear any more details. Was hoping someone knew more about this.

Because DOO built them.....hehehe. It sounds like he got junked up on a landing and ripped one side off!! CAT never had that problem!

A-arms aren't invincable. I broke one on my 96 ZRT and the landing wasn't even that harsh. Then again, what didn't eventually break on that pile of crap.

"Cat never had that problem" my azz I have seen this happen to other Cats. A arms are not as rugged as a trailing arm. Period.

WRONG zinger. It's just when you phuck up an A-arm it is much more phucked up! A- arms are considerably stronger than a trailing arm setup. Look at the diameter of the radius rods. I hit something once (think it was a rock) with my left ski and nothing happened. My buddy was not so lucky. His trailing arm was torn completely off and he hit the thing when it was covered in snow!

I seen the same thing but it happened to the A arm. The A arm is a great product don't get me wrong but I disagree with the strenght against Trailing arm.

Trailing arms are stonger in frontal impact then a-arms BUT in a side, top-bottom, or any impact other than head on, they tend to bend, dent, and buckle!

If trailing arms are so d**n good then why are all the sleds gonna be using A arms on all of there sleds....The only good thing about a trailing arm is that you can use it as a curb feeler like on the low riding cars..
