DI 600 has to come out in 2015 then. It will be the first arctic cat motor from them. Maybe a late 2014, but I doubt it

I would love a NEW AC triple, that still wouldn't make me get rid of my T-Cat though

2015-Cat gone from the face of the planet. Due to inability to satisfy customers and provide replacement parts in a timely matter, Cat decides to take their belt money and run.

I wouldnt say they were gone but I could see a huge drop in sales if 2014 doesnt have a non belt eater and they dont do anything for us with 2012-13's.

I really hope cat figures this out , they could go ahead and half ass a di motor into this chassis or a new chassis but if they dont fix what they've done wrong and continue to ignore the several issues they've had by rushing sleds into production like the 2012s, the Di motor and new chassis would be a flop if history repeats itself.

It sounds like the guys with belt problems that switch to the team secondary have it figured out.
WTF can't AC just put good clutches on these machines to start with?
I have a tuned '99 T-Cat that hasn't blown hardly ANY belts since new, and its always had the shit run out of it by me, or anyone else who's ridden it! Towed in blown up doos to boot.
Come on AC, fix these guys up
