Why No Clear Fuel Tank on the Sno Pros?


12/1/2009 7:45:00 PM

2010 Arctic Cat Sno Pro 500

 

Racers accustomed to white/clear plastic fuel tanks value the ease of determining fuel level. This is especially true for cross-country, where fuel stops can play a meaningful role in the race’s outcome. So when racers received their 2010 Sno Pro race sleds, there was some serious grumbling about the black-coated tanks.

SledRacer.com got the skinny on the situation, and posted about it HERE.

Sturgeon Comments about ArcticInsider

Brian Sturgeon, Team Arctic racing legend and Eagle River World Champion, is normally outspoken when it comes to the sport he loves.

So when I was at the Team Arctic Race shop recently, I asked... uh, "him" his opinion about ArcticInsider.com

I think his response speaks volumes for how we're doing with this site.

Greg Spaulding with Arctic Cat engines

 

Arctic Cat says there will be no Sno Pro 800 or consumer-friendly Sno Pro 600. The reason: not enough space for the larger engines. Can this really be true?
