So now the new Cats will fly like a um, Cessna, and bang moguls like a uh, ez-go?    :eek:

And the new Polaris is supposed to be some sort of triple 4S.   :blink:

For those of you too young to remember, this isn't Textron's first foray into the snowmobile world. They owned Polaris back in the late 60's and early 70's.

Triple 4S?  RU sure that's just a rumor?  Same was said about Polaris dropping Victory.  They could use something to attract traditional buyers.

The rumour started around a mountain sled. No 4s there.

Great now they can charge insane prices for old sled parts like they do for planes

I finally sold my Cat....took only 2.5 years and I lost a sh!t ton even tho I got more for it than others similar to it (minty low- mile and sweet extras).   I did take a bath on them extras tho, should of left it alone. Used sleds are damn near worthless unless they are ski-doo around here, even then not so much.

A guy at our swap meet last fall was trying to sell a couple of running AC cheetahs for $200 each and couldn't get anyone to buy them.
