i read a post on here some time ago about asking who liked the F series sleds and that got me wondering if arctic cat doesn't make the fire cats anymore, what do they have for sno cross sleds now ??

they didnt make a new snocross sled for this year and i think they got rid of the firecat because they ahd that chassis for a few years now and are deciding to get some new stuff out on the snow.

Everyone is kinda right and kinda wrong.

They call them ZR440 sno-pro's.

But:

They are not very close to the F-cat chassis (look at the steering post location for a big clue)
They don't even resemble a ZR line sled
They are the real sno-pro. The sno-pro package that you can get on an F7 is just upgraded shocks and stickers.

The Sleds are zr sno pro's in 02 &03 they were almost the exact same chassis as the firecat but have different shocks up front and a crosslink rear skid in back with bigger shocks than the firecat.Also in 02 the brake was located under the tunnel,in 03 its in the same place as the firecat. In 04 they changed it, new tunnel, steering colum moved way up,new seat, cut the back half of the belly pans and hood for a more rider forward position,slide arm rear skid etc.! This year its basically the same as last years! Points Champion sled in sno-x in Pro stock & Pro open last year and tucker will put us there again this year!!!

AC's race sleds resemble their crossfire and M series machines. They look pretty good in comparison to the new F-series. Shouldn't have changed it.

from what i understand ac race sled is the smae as last year. becuase they are making a new one for 08 with the 600 race motor, becuase the 440 is done. at least thats what my dealer told me.
