Doesn't say much when your brand sells so few. Nothing to do with #2 chant. All to do with your brand doesn't make what consumers want

I suppose, without this, what would Krom have to look forward to. Seems like a pretty pathetic existence to have to spend 23.5 hours a day on the internet trying to find crap to post on HCS to bash Polaris. We should all chip in and buy Krom a snowmobile, so he can actually ride. I am in for $100.

Who has ridden one to “review” it? Hell, who’s even seen this new engine? You never cease to amaze me with your bs.

OMG, company size doesn't mean jack shit when it comes to R&D. It is all based on the return on investment. No company wants to bleed money. Not if they are privately held or publicly traded, either way they are in business for a reason and it isn't to spend money.

You also used "are" as in present tense. Textron isn't Arctic. You can't pick it whichever way suits your fancy for a post.

It is really simple. If the Cat weren't a POS people would buy it and then Arctic would have a larger R&D coffer to pull from. Since they are not desirable they are now reduced to trying to decide where they can spend that will make the biggest difference. Sad thing is last year that was revitalizing their brand new motor to avoid warranty claims and public perception of the flame thrower. Personally I wish they would have been able to put that money into chassis development. Would love to see a new Cat I want to buy.

Quit being so silly. Sales numbers don't matter.

Bam!! And that is why you just don't give everyone the keys to the HCS liquor cabinet. So belly up to the bar Badgers buying.

I don't really have a "go to" shop. I'll either go with Dave at DLS, or Gilomen. Gilomen is a shop less than hour away from me, and reports are they do good work - so I'm leaning towards giving them a shot
