Suspension stuff, I'm sure a f7 owner will chime in with exact details.

the track, shocks, the race sno pro had the cross link in the rear, clear gas tank, heavier gears and chain, and other little things like that.

2003 440 liquid race sled has slightly different bracing in the chassis, no rear or side rail heat exchangers (just the tunnel close off front exchanger is functional on the racer from the factory), no part for oil injection, different riser and bars, different switches and controls, and as said above--- shocks, track, rails, tank, etc are racer specific.....

correct comparing firecat sno pro to firecat standard but he's asking about the 2003 440 racer vs 2003 firecats in general

EFI, seat, air box, and what the others said. No dimmer on the brake lever too maybe. My F7 feels light until I pick up my 02 Sno Pro. Joe.
