Did they do away with EBS on side by sides? That was the only thing i really didn't like about the wildcat trail at Hatfield McCoy. Down hill was a little scary sometimes. I was used to the mudpro holding back almost to a crawl down hill and like the feeling of engine braking without having to constantly ride the brakes down hills. The wildcat would free wheel at or below about 5 mph. No matter what i did i couldn't get it not to let loose so i was constantly riding brakes. I was a bit surprised to find out it drove like that and didn't like it. I have read that the wildcat doesn't use EBS and i am confused why they would eliminate that? Do the RZRs hold back down hill? I have also heard about one way bearings, does anyone know how that works? I would be interested in something aftermarket to help with this if anything is available.

With the CVT clutch and transmission set up yours is pretty normal. Polaris has tried to have more EBS over the years but typically it created bearing failures. Some guys have used the bearing and some other parts from an 800 Sportsman since they used the same clutch a few years with mixed results. I would guess the Mud Pro clutch is the same as your Wildcat and that may be an option. You could steal Nate's clutch since he hasn't sold it yet. Find a good Wild Cat forum I'm guessing that would be a fairly common topic.
A lot of times I left foot brake. With more seat time you get more comfortable with it. The Honda and the new Yamaha with the manual transmission this isn't a problem.

i found myself with left foot on the brake by the second day. You could play with the gas and brake and keep it somewhat controlled but sometimes 5 mph is still too fast! :62 I'll do some more checking. It's not that big of deal around here but on really long down hills you are glad to get to the bottom.
