Outta curiosity, what was is your opinion on the wildcat X 4 seater?Nice Video!
I test drove the X this weekend in glamis along with the 4 seat wildcat. The X is a huge improvement over the regular wildcat. The new clutch makes it respond really well and it actually feels like a 1000cc motor.
The X had no problem at 60 MPH plus in the whoops. In the dunes it is a blast to drive. The suspension is the best stock suspension of any SXS. It soaks up anything you can throw at it.
The biggest improvement is the motor and clutch. You now hit the go pedal and there is some go. It gets up to to speed pretty quick.
Awesome machine and it will be a contender.
When you first look at it all you see is a giant 4 seat bus. I think it is 13' long or pretty close to it. But once you start driving it you quickly get over that. And actually the looks of it start to grow on you.Outta curiosity, what was is your opinion on the wildcat X 4 seater?
Thanks Noel. I know you are always an honest man with your comments and also not working nor sponsored by the manufacture! LOLWhen you first look at it all you see is a giant 4 seat bus.

The 4 seater is actually very fun to drive in the dunes. It is the smoothiest SXS you will every drive or be in in the whoops, chop or rough terrian. The artic cat person told me to pin it in the whoops from vendors row to Olds. It was absolutely insane how smooth it was. I picked the gnarliest line I could fine and it did not matter. It easily got up to 60 MPH. On the way back from about a 200 yards down the sand highway to old to vendors I had it pinned and got it up to around 65. It took the corner at speed very well planted. I passed a long travel sandrail. The look on the owners face was priceless.
In the dunes it was way more nimble than I expected. You quickly forget about the extra seats and length. The power stearing in very nice. The demo ride took us through some medium and small dunes with various transitions and it handled everything. This was not the slow paced demo ride I took through the dunes in the Maverick. The artic cat person leading us was moving at a very fast pace. I was the second car behind the lead and we lost the rest of the group and had to stop and wait for them.
I also rode as a passanger in the 4 seater in the back seat. I made my friend drive it after I drove it. We had four adults in it and it was still smooth through the whoops and dunes. With the extra weight in the back we did bottom out the shocks a few times. Nothing a few clicks on the adjustable shock should not take care of. It was comfortable in the back seat for my friend that is 6' and a little over 200lbs. By the way we were able to get it to 60MPH in the whoops will four us in it.
The four seater is not going to be the fastest SXS out there, but it moves very well. It will cruise through the dunes no problem and at a good pace. With the right paddle combo it will be even better in the dunes.
It is certainly another option over the XP900 four seater. No it will not be as fast as the XP900 four seater, but the suspension and overall handling makes up for that. Also the extra leg room for the passengers in the back is nice.
If you ride only in tight trails, I think it maybe to long and difficulty to get around. But for fireroad type trails, desert and dune riding it is a good machine.
It is certainly a machine I would consider. I like the fact the only thing you need to add is some harness and you are good to go.
Jonathan, the reasons behind not wanting to go with a XP4 is the two piece frame is a lil sketchy and scares the crap outta me! Also the minimal leg room in the rear as well as a few cases of units catching on fire, steer me away from it.Dan why not go with xp4 or kawi 4? They are two completely diff machines. The xp4 is a great performance machine but lacks interior comforts for sure. The kawi is the complete opposite
