Did you ever hear the term
"open up a can of whoop ass" ?
Well thats what the T-Cat is, times three. 160+hp, power you wont
believe until you wack the loud lever for the first time. Hang on, your
in for one wild ride.
Price on a 93 T-Cat should be around $2500-$3500 depending on it`s
overalll condition. I`m SURE it`s NEVER been raced. ;-)
Possible problems? Well I kow I don`t need to tell you this, but thing
has only one thing in it`s list of tricks. WIN!!! The first one across
the lake each and every time. As for trail riding, well thats not too
pretty. I owned a 95 T-Cat and loved it until I tried to trail ride it.
The turns were so so but the bumps were brutal. Not a trail monster and
it`s no ZR, NOT by a long shot.
The only thing I can think of off the top of my head is the stator,
they did have a few that had bad charge (voltage) coils. A wire would
break on the iside of the coil, $480 for a new one, $125.00 to get it
I`m sure a hypersled of a 93 vintage will need a track if it hasn`t
already gotten a few in it`s life already. However the 93 T-Cat had the
best track to date from Cat, they lasted longer than any other stock
track that I can think of.
Now for a real important messsage. No joke. This T-Cat you want is
without a doubt one of the fastest hypersled out. It WILL get you in
trouble faster than most. Corners come up faster than you`d like and
even though the Wilwood brake it one of the best binders out it wont do
a thing if you dont respect the sled and the power. BE CAREFUL!!! Watch
out for other sledders too. Your not the only sled out there and I`m
sure you dont want to ruin your trip or anyone elses for that matter. A
monkey can drive fast, but only someone with common sense can ride
smart. Ride with others in mind at all times.
(Soap box dismount. double backflip.) ;-)
The 93 T-Cat has the salmon colored decals and most people hated the
looks of them, well I`ll tell you, the 93 T-Cat is the faster of ANY of
the 900cc T-Cats out from 93 to 97.
The 900 motor is very dependable and I know of a few with well over
10,000 miles on them, mine was one of them. I know of a guy (a friend of
mine) that sold a 94 T-Cat with almost 20,000 miles on it and not a
problem with the motor what so ever.
At best I got 17+ mpg at worst I could get as low as 10-11. This 900
motor is truely awesome.
Hope this helps
