Default IN DEPTH: 2018 M8000 Sno Pro

Myself and the rest of the Snowest test crew have been putting in some hard miles on the 2018 M8000 Sno Pro, this thing is insane. Huge difference over a 16 or 17. Enjoy the read!

Great write up and video! Excited to see these in person. I am hoping I can do some of the upgrades to my 16!

Nice.
I'm looking forward to getting the chance to ride one.
I'd like to be able to update my 2016 with the body work running boards and maybe the clutch.
I hope there's a body work kit???

Did you guys notice or can maybe measure if the motors been moved over, my fatty 15 panels rub hard on primary when laid over I cant imagine 2 inches narrower! I heard mention of "new" motor mounts in the tech interview you guys did.

I appreciate that you took the testing seriously enough to buy a matching jacket.

Looking really nice. Things go well for 2018 I'll likely be on a 2019. Pretty happy with my 16 HC 800 looking forward to the new panels.
