    if you're looking for completely uninformed speculation, I'd wager a shorter wheelbase with the same or an RCH longer front-center.

    Fast Cat is built around a 100mm fork and has shorter chainstays while the Wet Cat was built around a 80mm fork. There was an article on Singletracks last week. Vassago OptimusTi Reviews | Mountain Bike Reviews || SINGLETRACKS.COM. I currently have the 2013 Optimus and really like the way it handles. Easy to get the front end up and over obstacles and climbs great too.

    Check the geo section on their website. This should answer your question.
