the track/traction in deep snow makes the alpha a new dynamic....with a 900, no turbo would be necessary, especially with the factory turbos likely to put out about 30-35 hp at altitude, a 900 would be nearly the same, and with the more efficient drive train, especially if combined with a belt drive, the alpha would be giving up nothing to the doo....and it would be lighter, and probably more reliable long term than the turbo..
I love my Axys but as I have a very aggressive riding style i was bending a arms often, my tunnel was kinked, and I had this thought in my head I needed a more solid built sled. Well I could have not been more wrong as the AC hardcore did not step up to the the plate and disappointed me in that regard.That's a tear jerker for sure. I heard the Artic Cat factory has been a ghost town since they sent the last of them home in early Feb. But I sure agree with you that kind of disrespect I would not be back to buy either. What happened to your Polaris that you came over to Cat.
