The ProCross chassis cleaned up USXC and ISOC in 2018, about 50-60% win percentage in USXC, most of them the 600 class, and it won about 50% of those events again last season.
So from a racing/handling/performance perspective, its still a formidable chassis, if not the best racing flatlander and circuit chassis, and don't give me that Tucker Hibbert nonsense, no races I just mentioned had a rider named Tucker. Don't care what brand your into, that's impressive for a chassis built/designed in 2012, but that's what you get when your manufacturer cares more about racing/performance then sales.
Not saying Polaris and Ski-Doo don't make a great chassis, I drove a new 850 Assault last year and was very impressed.
Going to try and ride a Gen-4 850 Doo this year as that will be my next snowdog, its too bad I don't live closer to @Badger.

This is normal and expected.

Be concerned when a company stops putting R&D money into a product. The only time R&D isn't needed is right before a product dies.

its the same motor they just fixed the major flaws that made it shoot flames. Yes they need constant improvement but why not make it at least match what the competition had 3 years ago?

Rumors of an bigger bore engine didn’t come true, but that doesn’t mean that Arctic Cat doesn’t have additional two-stroke power. The brand upgraded its C-TEC2 8000-series engine with new cylinders, pistons, combustion chamber, flywheel, fuel rail and calibrations, with promises of more responsiveness, better fuel economy and cleaner running overall from a powerplant with a claimed horsepower output of 165 ponies.

161.0 at the crank from a brand new engine or I'll eat an entire package of gluten-free donuts from the healthfood store (in one sitting).

I've been wondering the same thing. I have the floor plan of the new venue in Syracuse and it only shows 3 large vendor booths in the middle of the arena. Is Cat and Yamaha splitting a booth? That's my guess..
Without 2020 inventory to purchase they don't really need a huge booth anyways.
All will be great though once the 2021 model is revealed.

It's not a cutaway but it's good side by side comparison of an opened up engine.
