Default The new Arctic Cat

I wish the new Arctic Cat gave us something to talk about.
Too many secrets, not enough hype.

Tell us more about this new 800
Tell us more about the new front suspension
Tell us more about what's going on in Thief River Falls and St Cloud MN

I miss the days when John S @ Arctic Insider would feed our passion for Arctic Cat products, rumors and gossip.

I don't care that it comes in this or that color. I want details, I want tech.

Recreate the excitement that once accompanied Arctic Cat

Snowgoer is retarded. The front end was revamped with longer spindles and moving the bottom bushing up 1.5 inches raising the front end of the sled and making the roll ratio smaller. Apparently, it makes a big difference in ride and cornering performance (prolly why the fat fucks at Snowgoer didn’t notice anything).

Also, the mil was completely retooled to make it a “true” 165 ho sled. Retooling isn’t easy or cheap.

It should be a great sled.

The new mill will have a few more hp over the current one. It is not going be 165 out of the box like everyone is thinking.

Don't worry about dskofich he's just a little brand hating sock warmer. Early opinions of the new AWS II are very good.

I for one hope they don’t do away with the race dept. I attended a amsoil Snocross event this season & noticed a lot of brand loyalty. Also it’s a great place for testing new stuff & improving what they have.
I’m new to Arctic Cat having bought my 1st one at the end of March, and I would also love to see & hear more info about what’s going on & what’s to come.
