(EDITOR’S NOTE: This is the sixth in a series of articles about converting a 2015 Arctic Cat M 8000 SnoPro into a SnoWest Forums 2016 Project Cat giveaway sled. Throughout the summer and fall we will be working with SnoWest Forum members to build the perfect snowmobile … and then we will give it away to a Forum member at the end of the build.)
Last week we covered the installation of the Mountain Valley Machine belt drive. This week we’re adding a three-inch Power Claw track—one of the most popular installs to the 2015 Arctic Cat M 8000 SnoPro project.
Although this install was actually part of last week’s install (when you have the drive system exposed, it’s best to do everything at once), we are addressing this as a separate and unique install (so there will be some redundancies from last week’s install).
One thing nice to note about Arctic Cat is that they have a great program in place for Cat riders who may want to upgrade their 2.6-inch track to a 3-inch track.
