I had a look at the 17 Line up and besides the new engine I am left unimpressed to say the least.

The colour combo's for this year are the worst I've seen period.

Who the fuck wants sticks and trees on their sleds?????

The limited only has the "real tree" option and who really needs the RR? Looks like I will be not trying a 17 this year and keeping my 16 which I'm ok with.

Does anyone have experience with the QS3R KASHIMA vs. the QS3's? Are the RR's still going to be valved similar to the EVOL or is the QS3R a trail friendly version?

Had to laugh when I saw this. That is pretty much what I said when we were talking about the new sleds on the weekend. There was one guy who said he liked it though.

Friend of mine says he's going to trade in his '14 XF7000, keep his '15 XF8000 Limited and put the down payment on a '17 Spring order Thundercat------------he says "I wanna go fast".

Oh yea most of the graphic packages SUCK!
The RR and the Thundercat are the only ones that don't look like they designed for 25 year olds!

Considering the poor snow conditions here in the east and only about 450 miles for the season, it is tough to want to snow check a new Tcat.

I rode Tcats for 20 seasons before getting a turbo so I would really like a tcat but I think I will wait until 2018.

Need to see how they perform and how they get boosted. Unlike the old days, the new tcat is not the king of the hill when we are all riding boosted turbos....

I been running this camo for two years I have hidden from the police 7 times I just stopped and they went by. It's better than some of the graphics they sell for $300. A lot look like little kids graphics with their back packs. Camo is redneck!!!! Ac copied me.

Yea it might take a year or 2 for the aftermarket to get up to speed, but my buddy is still trying to wipe the shit eat'n grin off his face from riding my boosted turbo!

Even had a '15 800 Renegade owner swear he's going to buy a Thundercat also! This guy was kicking the shit out of all my 800 Cat buddies. He's studded up and hooks really well, I'm not studded so when we lined up he pulled out to a 3 - 4 sled length lead on me and thought he kicked my ass.
Well around 90 I came flying by him like he was standing still (his words)!

Let him ride it for a few miles and he says he's gotta have one!

You know something no one ever mentions is how smooth and low revving at cruising speeds these things are. They are great trail sleds as long as you're not ditch banging or having to pick them up.
