Can Robby Gordon do for Arctic Cat
what he did for Polaris?
By the staff of Dirt Wheels
Arctic Cat’s 700cc Sport Cat was not
left out of the project. Robby’s contribution to this model should be big
as well. Both, the 1000 and Sport get
doors, seats, five-point harnesses,
wheels and tires to spruce things up. All
pricing will be announced soon.
❏;While attending a NASCAR race in
2008 we spotted a RZR 800 in Robby
Gordon’s pit area that was turned into
a four-seater. Besides the race cars, it
was the coolest thing in the pits. You
see, at that time a lifted golf cart was
the flashiest thing allowed to cruise
the infield roads of the NASCAR
That transformation Robby creat-
ed was quickly adopted by Polaris,
and they named their first four-seat
RZR the Robby Gordon Edition. That
machine and their partnership no
doubt helped Polaris gain steam
almost a decade ago. For 2016 Robby
has aligned himself with Arctic Cat
and has provided some very valu-
able input into the Arctic Cat Wildcat
The single-arm and hub assembly
mounts in two places directly behind
the seat. The inside portion bolts to
a plate that gets bolted to the two
mounts formerly used by the stock arm.
The outer pivot point of the trailing arm
gets a new mounting point that is slid
into and bolted to the lower side tube
of the frame.
Starting with the Wildcat 1000,
Gordon helped develop a much-needed
new trailing arm set up for the largest
Wildcats. For now this is a bolt-on product you can buy and install yourself or
even have the dealer do it.
