In addition to releasing the consumer 2014 ZR 6000 RR and M6000 Sno Pro sleds at Hay Days, Arctic Cat also had on display the XC racing version of the ZR6000 R Sno Pro.

Yes... the 2014 race sled (I know, the naming makes it a bit confusing).

 

2014 XC & SX Sno Pro 600 Updates:

-New spindles (more material removed to reduce weight)

-New ski rubber (improved front suspension handling characteristics)

-New tie rod tubes (larger diameter for increased strength)

-New side panels with added venting

-New driven shaft for improved durability and ease of assembly

-New top bearing in dropcase to accept “floating” driven shaft design

-New track driveshaft and track drive sprockets (revised pitch and tooth profile, broached hex for increased insertion force)

-New running board stiffeners for increased strength and added traction

-New seat cover for improved durability

-New brake caliper with low compression seals for improved level feel and faster-reacting brake

-New idler arm for improved durability

-New lightweight idler wheel mounting blocks (magnesium with 6mm mounting hardware)

-New rear axle adjuster blocks with added nylock nut to prevent track adjustment bolts from backing out

-Modified exhaust (similar to 2012 Sno Pro for improved engine durability)

-Improved clutch calibration on the cross country mode

John, you have 2014 XC Sno Pro Specs. listed twice!
The lower specs. are the SX (Snocross sled) with the 1.7" lug track, smaller gas tank, etc.
I like the black too, but I also like the RR race replica, even got reverse!
How about the Black Magic graphic kits!
Great job John, I'm excited too!

Another excellant report John !! I agree Mike F, Black just says AC, it took me a long time to adapt to Arctic Green, but my love is always Arctic Black ! Any more photo's you holding out on us loyal AI fans that you can share about the new sleds, Haydays the event itself, any bargains to be had at the swap meet? Oh, how did the new AC's do at the races themselves? Got to be some bragging points there someplace LOL! Kinda sucks living so far east to not be able to attend these events as much as I would like!

Nice looking sled..as far as the rear skid I think the correct word should be damping not dampening..when talking shocks

I wish you guys would tell more about the data acquisition - fantastic system from what I can tell

So is the race sled using the new cat 600 with carbs or is it the older engine? looks like it is the same specs as the ZR 6000RR?

The race sled has the carbureted Suzuki engine in it.

something positive I will say this; it is hard. There are days where the thohgut of sending them back to school sounds heavenly, like really heavenly. -We had T and B in public school for 2 1/2 years and we had a GREAT experience. Wonderful teachers, fantastic administration and great parental involvement. So I am not against public school! Homeschooling was something that had been on my heart for a couple of years and I kept finding reasons not to (ie, coaching, having another baby) So when we moved in February it was the perfect time to try it . -If you have a great community for homeschooling and co-ops available then that is half the battle! We start our first co-op on Monday and I am super excited. Veteran homeschooling moms will be my new BFF's. They have wisdom and a perspective that I have yet to gain. I have heard continually that the first year is the hardest. -It was a big adjustment. The kids were not use to being around eachother so much. And that's when a HUGE lightbulb went off. Their siblings, me, their dad, our family is no longer the biggest influence in their life. So all of those rambling, bla bla thohguts probably don't help you. I could talk (to you) so much about this. But I will end with this; it is a topic much like working moms vs. stay at home moms. It is different for every family, mother and child. What works for some doesn't work for others. You need to do what is best for your children. Don't let nay sayers sway you in either direction. Don't let fear sway you. Don't let society sway you. I must come see you soon. We could eat cheesecake and visit!
