That has been a general wish among the deep powder AC users.

Also, he's right about the competition.
Time to be ahead of the development - again.

So if you think that Cat didn't retool the sno pro just to race with, why didn't you see the 2004-2007 sno pro come into production?

It pretty much was in production. Many of the parts were modified parts for a F-kitty chassis. A great example is the hood. Simply a cut down F-kitty hood.

Okay, but similarly to the new sno pro, when the 2004 came out it was based on a sled already in production. However, to ride this sled as compared to the F-Cat chassis the two sleds are totally different, and the only pieces that have made it into production are suspension parts. The new sno pro is also based off of a chassis that is already in production, so in my opinion if you are waiting for it to become the next mountain sled you better get ready to build it yourself.

besides all the bs, i dont know if it will ever be in a consumer friendly form, for trail guys. but the 08 sno pro kicks ass and is the best sled on the track. there isnt one thing the 08 600 doenst do better than my 07 440 or my last years 06 440 or any previous sled ever produced by arctic... it's a straight up raw, animal! no complaints

Nymann, have you noticed a considerable difference with the shorter track relative to timing of the moguls? Also, how do the coil over spring front shocks compare to the air shocks from the '06 sleds?

track isn't any shorter it's the same length but it is wider than the older ones.

mY .02 cents....sleds flies very nicecly in the air and easy to control and get out of trouble with gas or brake (good thing for me), motors are strong but not being able to get the right jet needles is not helping anything. Sled will barely idle. They are on back-order till end of January (not good). I found it likes a higher engagement so I went to a higher rate primary and pull some pretty good holeshots when I am actually watching the flagman. Don't settle for stock clutching, experiment and you will be happy. Sled likes higher RPM off the line...for me anyway. Guess it could depend on type of snow too. Overall, not too many problems but none woulda been great..The mod goes thru plugs every two heats...no questions..change them or else!!!! Watch your plugs as the baseline Speedwerx gives is just that, a baseline. Last weekend in heavy fog/mist, I was at 410 in the mod and 390 in stocker and probably coulda dropped one more size on each. Fun sled though overall...........

There are some different plugs that work better. Call the race dept. and they will give you the plug numbers.[/b]
Used them last weekend...also you can gap the BR9EYA's @.018 and this seems to help. Still...the problem doesn't really show up on the warm up stand....only on track....so better safe than sorry....but it's your call...two heats and change two plugs...routine stuff...LOL
